The project’s morphology constitutes an innovative creation, based on an abstract and contemporary look at classical Greek Architecture.
Its Principles and References:
Measure, Rhythm, Harmony, Purity, Nature, Elegance, Beauty.
Doric simplicity - Luxury, Geometry - Freedom, Contemporary - Ancient / Local
Use of forms:
