Our main goal was to revive the area and mark it as a connecting point between the old and the new city of Chania. We accomplished it by highlighting the historical meaning of it as well as its archeological treasures and the use of the water. We used the water to attract people to this area not only to admire it but to from a bond through activities. In addition the water was a tool to modulate the landscape. The main purpose of the city walls is stability and resistance. So, our buildings had to be light and disquiet. Τhe old and the new parts of the city are connected with light structure bridges, which are visible from every part of the moat. The key building – bridge holds the bond of the one side of the moat and the top of the bastion of San Salvador.
