Photo shoot of the day - Ksylapothiki in Piraeus
Preview images from the photo shoot of the day at the Ksylapothiki in Piraeus for Attiko Metro.
The building serves a double function: it's the workshop of the Ephorate of Antiquities of Piraeus for the archaeological artefacts from the Metro Stations' locations for their reconstruction, preservation and storage; and at the same time on the upper level it's a museum curating the excavations and findings. A large double-ceiling atrium links visually the two functions.
The road in front of the building has become a pedestrian path which also serves as the deck to the underground excavations linking the building to the archaeological site across.
