For us, research is not only a way of expression; it is also a way to counterbalance the strict and bureaucratic reality.

Having successfully completed the 4-year research project concerning the architectural and urban dimension of the tobacco warehouses of Thessaloniki, a result of the invitation and commissioning of the Hellenic Association of Tobacco Processing and Trading Companies, we are active in raising awareness and informing our audience about the necessity of rescuing and preserving the memory not only of tobacco trade activity but also of the buildings that house this activity in the urban fabric of our city.

Thessaloniki constituted a TOBACCO CAPITAL during the second half of the 20th century and it is our duty to use this advantage as a lever of growth in the 21st century.
