Athens Streets Uplift

Project Description

The urban form of Athens, its urban block typologies and sizes and the lack of urban mobility planning in the city lead to increasing traffic congestion and parking issues that are one of the ingredients of the urban liveability current degradation. Citilinks proposes a combination of strategic and tactical mobility planning, grouping the small urban blocks of Athens into superblocks organized in multifunctional public spaces shaped by digital communities which mitigate the footprint of the car through tactical  projects. These incremental interventions are the results of community-driven initiatives and digitized design tools. Micromobility and the sharing economy are then introduced in pilot local streets to improve their metabolism, while larger urban highways, such as Synggrou Avenue, are rethought into greener infrastructure integrating dedicated bus lanes, autonomous mobility corridors and landscape urbanism.
