Archimandrite Damaskinos Vasilopoulos

An important byzantine monument has been lying on the bottom of the artificial lake of Kremaston, close to Acheloos river, since 1965. It is famous in the circle of archaeologists as "Episkopi Evritanias" and in the region of Evritania as "Virgin of Episkopi".

Sources of water – Sources of life for Aegina
Nectarios Koukoulis, teacher (M. ed.), headmaster of the 1st primary school of Aegina

In places that suffer from drought, a source of drinkable water is a valuable capital, a source of life, but also a place of socializing, humanness and common wealth. This is why, the fountains “Vryssi of St. Panteleimon” and “Kourentis” form for centuries a part of the life and history of Aegina. Which are their history and the present fate?

The Marathon Tumulus and its environs
Agnes Couvelas – Panagiotatou, architect

Around the Marathon Τumulus an archaeological park of 85,000 sq.m. is being arranged to illuminate the historical battleground. Our intervention maintains the character of the plain, thus enhancing the Tumulus this earthworklike burial monument. The landscaping is indigenous, similar to the one applied in ancient times.

Design took place in 2003 and construction was partly completed in June 2004.

Watermills, the unknown pre-industrial water engine laboratories
Maria Gripari, architect, Ministry of Culture/Institute of Greek Watermills

In the Greek area, it is estimated that more than 40.000 water engine laboratories exist, either as simple watermills or as complex water engine units. Their in situ localization and their record per Municipality or Prefecture, as well as their appraisal and their relative use as museums or as other land uses is demanded for their protection.

Bridges of Hipeiros
Maria Balodimou, architect, MSc in Conservation and Restoration, K.U.Leuven, Belgium

The bridges of Hipeiros form a splendid example of popular architecture of the 18th and 19th c. in Greece, a creation generated by the human need for transfer. Today, having lost in most cases their value of usage, the bridges appear neglected and often distorted by current interventions.
