… ’. My lecture was on the mapping and analysis of the settlement of Oia in Santorini from the urban scale to its micro-scale. In my dissertation I also dealt with the reuse of the barracks of Argos (Kapodistria) and the utilization of the central square of the city, including the construction of a Cultural Center. My classmate Nikos Georgiadis was a collaborator on both issues.’
