Urban torrents. The Athenian streams as networks for the reconstruction of public space.
Panos Dragonas, architect, assistant professor, University of Patras

The streams’ network of Athens composed a characteristic element of the natural landscape of Attica, which was destroyed during the construction of the drainage networks and the city’s traffic. The construction of new open discharge networks and the purification of rain water constitutes an opportunity for reconstructing the splitted Athenian public space, but also a first step towards the direction of viable urban development.
