ABOUT BERGEN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE & BIG OLIVE
Bergen School of Architecture together with Berlin based office Raumlabor took their students for a studytrip in Athens.
This Big Olive route, delivered to the students and professors of Bergen School of Architecture, offered a view as to how the neighborhood of Neos Kosmos came to be and brings to life the history and ethnic roots of its unique cultural mix. The group was led to a discussion of a variety of sites including: the Armenian church, the Bauhaus refugee residences, the lavishly impressive Onassis Cultural Center and a church of cast iron that once stood on the banks of the Seine.
The project included:
➢ housing projects for migrants/workers [Distomo by atelier66 & meet with Dimitris & Susanna Antonakakis] ➢ itinerary focusing on modernist Greek architecture & social housing
During this collaboration Big Olive catered for:
➢ urban research & itinerary design & curation
➢ project visit arrangement.
