‘Reactivate Athens’ was conceived in 2013 as a participatory research and design initiative directed by the RA Lab, a collaboration between the Urban-Think Tank Chair of Architecture and Design at ETH Zurich and local partners already operating in the city. The interdisciplinary team critically analysed longer-term processes of urban decline and generated new ideas for the Athens city centre that mobilise latent resources to address the debilitating impacts of the wider economic and social crisis. Engaging local residents in an inclusive process to define an alternative urban vision, the project helped shape the 101 ideas that were further developed and refined for this book.

"Urban-Think Tank takes tactical urbanism to Greece, whowing how infill, activtion, and an architecture of scaffolding can offe ways for Athens to reinvigorate itself. Are these the temples of a new architecture, on of, fo, and by the people?" - Aaron Betsky
