This project concerns the new Metro Station of Piraeus. Just outside the old station, under the avenue, there is the new metro station of Piraeus. It is considered an underwater project due to it’s proximity to the sea. My participation was as the designer – architect of Mevaco, the factory that had the contract for all the station’s metal cladding.
All perimeter walls, all ceilings and all concrete columns were supposed to be “wrapped” in galvanized steel painted with electrostatic paint. In contrast with other Metro stations this one has no marble cladding, all cladding is sheet metal panels. In order to keep up with the project pace I assembled a small team (Thanassis Malevitis, George Felekis, Jim Kalavriotis). Having adopted Mevaco’s expertise in the field, we made one digital fabrication model, describing all the parts in the Metro Station’s coordinate system. We then produced a series of 2d drawings, component drawings, montage drawings, assembly drawings & installation drawings to provide to Mevaco to be able to deliver on time.
