In my thesis ‘Rethinking the Absorption Capacity of Urban Space’, I developed urban design strategies relating to the former Amsterdam Over-Amstel Penitentiary, to integrate migrants into society in a sustainable way. In this research and design project, I apply the already developed method to Athens. For this city, I make a comparative analysis and designs a number of interventions. The results are compared with the previous results obtained in Amsterdam.
