ATHENS | Hubris Nemesis Katharsis | 122m | Pro

‘'Hubris Nemesis Katharsis‘' is a multi - storey rehabilitation space situated in Omonoia square Athens which aims to the urban regeneration of one of the most socially segregated areas in the centre of the city. Omonoia (Greek: Oμόνοια) is translated as unity, concord and harmony, notions that are completely unavailable in this area, which is dominated by drug addicts, prostitution, illegal immigration, illegal trading and criminality.

Omonoia square is part of the historical triangle, designed by Kleanthis - Schaubert in 1832 and can be characterized as one of the most important public spaces and intersections in central Athens up until today. The rapid flow of the population towards the suburbs in addition to the absence or the incapability of proposing urban strategies for the centre of Athens has led it to become a ghetto-like area.

In order to support and reinforce the main concept, three volumes and a neural structural system define the final form. The volumes are situated in a way that enables the communication and circulation amongst them. Hubris, the lower volume, is in direct co-relation with the public space of the square in order to be easily accessible. The square is now accessible by multiple spots as the roads have been transferred underground combined with the existing subway network. Nemesis is situated in the middle part of the skyscraper volume hosting both the "patients" and the illegal immigrants seeking regularization. The meta-phasis between the ultimate sin and the ultimate salvation [catharsis] is positioned at the higher level, oriented towards the Acropolis. This volume provides accommodation and work to the rehabilitees that have completed the process.

The total height of the skyscraper is 122 m.

The proposed skyscraper tries to manage and take in account the special climate of Greece. The building envelope drives natural sunlight and passive ventilation through a customizable perforation which is organized always in relation to the hosted spatial occupation. In relation to this, a network of "green" spaces is created in the majority of the building's volume connected even through thin lines of planted space on the structural elements. The perforation and the arrangement of the building's openings were designed through programming and scripting. More specifically, the neural structural system emerged from an algorithmic process that simulates natural systems' growth, by collecting data from the structural analysis of the building envelope in a constant feedback loop. The exact procedure is being applied to each of the structural columns-neurons making the entire proposal an entity with anisotropic characteristics.

Absolutely brilliant... reminds me of Tour Phare and Nouvel's MOMa, but with an even more structural innovation. At the same time, I cannot help but think that it will not be build considering Athens rigid height restrictions, money, as well as their conservative notions about architecture.

Why do they even bother to spend time on designing something that will NEVER be built?

They are a private (architecture) company and secondly if they have money, why they will never be built? Lately there is an effort to change the limit height of structures, and also they are many other highrise proposals in some areas of Athens (when i have more data i will start a new thread).

Interesting. Going from a highrise ban to a project this futuristic. I would have expected something conservative for Athens.

The big game is in the area of Hellenikon, the place will be transformed into 1 of the biggest (if not the biggest) parks of Europe + a financial center. 1 of the proposals

The entire park looks very impressive but I am wondering if some part of it is already U/C?

Thanks.

About that park: Yes its impressive but its not U/C. Actually there is not the final project yet: still we dont know how many buildings will be there, how many floors will have, height etc...
When all these data are published i will start a new thread here with more details for that project (in the park).


As for this project (Hubris Nemesis Katharsis) if they decide to built it will be the tallest building in the center of Athens.
