MedINA is pleased to announce the approval of the proposal “Hidden Cultural Identities that reappear through water networks” (CULTURAL H.ID.RAN.T), submitted in the framework of the 5th call for funding from the European Urban Innovative Actions funding framework.
Led by the Municipality of Halandri the project team consists of EYDAP S.A., the Panteion University Institute of Regional Development, the architectural and urban planning company Thymio Papayannis and Associates Inc. (TPA), the collaborative design team Commonspace Co-op, the “Ohi Paizoume” (UrbanDig Project) team and the Ephorate of Antiquities of Eastern Attica.
The project aims to re-introduce Hadrian’s Aqueduct from the Roman period to the contemporary urban life of Halandri in Athens in order to raise awareness of local cultural and natural heritage and contribute to citizens’ wellbeing.
MedINA is in charge of creating a local archive that will shed light on the tangible and intangible aspects of Hadrian’s Aqueduct as a common source of heritage in the area, together with an online platform that will host the archive and tell its story in a simple and meaningful way in an attempt to engage residents and other users alike.

We are very happy to be part of such a creative endeavor and we look forward to the best results.
We would like to thank again the Municipality of Halandri for the trust and the cooperation.
