The Port of Piraeus has launched an architecture competition for the development of a museum dedicated to submarine antiquities in a former grain silo in the centre of the port. The objective for this major element in the "Cultural Coast" project is to propose an emblematic building for the city and the port, but also to modify the citizens’ perception of the port by re-introducing it into their daily lives. Date limit for registration : 6 August 2012
