Over the past few decades, Paros and Antiparos have emerged as benchmarks in contemporary architecture, with the creation of significant projects that have gained international recognition in the realm of vacation residences. However, as these two islands are rapidly transforming into popular tourist destinations, the surge in demand and accelerated pace of construction jeopardize the delicate equilibrium between the natural landscape and human intervention.
The projects included in this volume demonstrate how architects are now tasked with confronting the challenges of the times, encompassing aspects such as scale, density, periodic usage patterns, and sustainability. The main responsibility extends to attentively listening to the needs of residents and visitors, while safeguarding the integrity of nature and heritage, engaging in respectful and measured discourse.
