Atelier Cepissakova, Munich

Throughout the years Athenas Street has been the market where the western world met the world of the East. It mutated from glorious with its merchants’ residencies, to a ghetto of workers, petty traders, prostitutes, and criminals as a constant battlefield. In contradiction to that, it was named after the goddess Athena, a beloved deity of the ancient Greeks, the personification of wisdom, knowledge, and art. It connects the Monastiraki area (the way to ascend the sacred hill of Acropolis) with Omonia Square (the heart of the city) and is one of the main streets of Athens.
