Scope and Content

This project series documents the Cais de embarque para european architects in Salonica, Greece. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 75/90. The office assigned the date 1996 for this project

In 1997, Thessaloniki was the host city for the event "Cultural Capital of Europe." An architectural initiative named "Provoking spatial episodes - On the coast" was created to celebrate the relationship between the sea and the city. Several architects were invited to design small piers on the coast. For Siza, the program criteria included the construction of a pier able to receive 250 people, debaring area for catamarans, house ticket dispensers, waiting room, press room and food stall.

Documenting this project are sketches, studies, presentation drawings, and project documentation. Slides document the project model.
