Town of Pitiousa

Spetses, Greece

The masterplan for Pitiousa, a resort development for Dakis Joannou, extends the existing urban fabric of the town of Spetses by projecting a network of streets, squares, urban blocks, gardens and public spaces. Pitiousa is a self-regulating, living system that relies on well-tried constructional techniques and materials. Pitiousa recognises that “Classicism is not a style” but a tradition that has evolved from and coexisted with the vernacular.
