The piers, situated along the stretch of waterfront between the old port and the airport, will serve as boat terminals for a new public transport system. These piers will give both a new impulse to the currently run-down coastline and also improve the citys transport infrastructure. Aldo and Hannie van Eyck, Finn Geipel (Lab F AC), Mario Botta, Alvaro Siza, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Enric Miralles, Rem Koolhaas (OMA), Giancarlo De Carlo: architects from different countries and different generations took up this challenge, and in their diversity they show what can be imagined with this distinctive structure.

They designed not only the jetties, but also adjoining facilities such as pavilions, a cinema, places to stroll and sit, a swimming pool, a cafe, etc. This publication provides an overview of all eight projects. The introductory essay outlines the citys urban conditions, the significance of this development for Thessaloniki and the nature of the architectural assignment. Each project is extensively documented with plans, sections, elevations and sketches, and is accompanied by an explanatory text.
