Visiting the OTE Building

As part of the KAM Workshops 2010, the Bankruptcy of Architecture, we visited this morning the OTE building making a time travel and acting like archeologist inside their building in Chania.

Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE S.A.) is the largest telecommunications provider in Greece. Their infrastructure includes more than 20.000 Km of fiber-optic cables, numerous satellite, submarine and terrestrial cables all over the world. Part of these big infrastructure are their buildings network. This year KAM workshops will deal with architecture in a time of crisis, focusing in the building we visited, as a paradigmatic case of insufficiently used buildings in central urban areas.
