"Transformations of the Piraeus port" Magoulas Nikos, Koutounidou Martha

The subject of this survey is the port of Piraeus. As port of Piraeus we mean the geographical place which includes the passenger’s port and the nearby urban web. The limits are not strictly designated and we often penetrate in the urban web in order to understand better the characteristics of the place. We look for the port in the fine arts, in the movies, in the music. The port was analyzed historical and sociological. Finally we tried to find out the special qualities of the place and the secret dimensions of architecture like the light, the air and the sound.
