The Greek Agora was the focal point of ancient social life. It housed an assembly place, a fountain house and served as a forum for social and communal events. The Agora was often framed by an aqueduct, which served as both a life source and a physical threshold. The Agora was thus used as a conceptual means for site transforma­tion: several existing structures were preserved and ancient geolo­gical and social layers were excavated in order to expose the latency for new intervention on this site.
