An exhibition on the architecture heritage of Thessaloniki

The exhibition Thessaloniki 100+. Architecture and city: Modernizations and adaptations opens on December 7, 2012 in Thessaloniki Concert Hall.

The exhibition takes place in the context of Thessaloniki’s celebrations for the centennial of its liberation. It presents the late and contemporary architecture heritage of Thessaloniki, while investigating its lifelong, multiple identities through the current city image. The main concept involves the highlighting of progressive trends that have been applied in successive transition phases towards the contemporary reality. The exhibition aims at the creation of an architectural promenade through the actual city, while sections through time and space offer the possibility of discovering unknown perspectives of the contemporary city. Featuring architectural projects and urban interventions of critical importance and global impact, the show focuses on the stratigraphy of the place and the way the implementations of the projects have shaped the contemporary image of the city.

Presented in a chronological order, the main units of the exhibition cover the primary ottoman modernisation (before 1912), the interwar radical urban reconstruction, the postwar/cold war modernisation and the contemporary architectural and urban diffuse.

Meet the different faces of Thessaloniki; a unique city balancing between East and West.
