City of Mussels

This new approach to the Thermaikos Gulf allows for the connection of four mussel islands through the creation and bridging of two aquatic paths, thus extending the lively environment of Thessaloniki to the delta of the River Axios. The urban route of the Eastern coast provides access to the islands located along the eco-tourist path of the Western shore, which act as four poles of diversity and productivity. Each island functions as mussel cultivation, providing opportunities for culture, education and industry as well as a new public space for leisure activities. The annual calendar of events follows the life cycle of the mussels and culminates with Mussel Fest, the harvesting and feasting of the mussels in November. Furthermore, the islands are agents of de-pollution and environmental clean up, aimed at increasing the awareness of the battered conditions of the Axios River. Small filtration pods migrate to different aggregations to act as filters, break walls, or for event awareness.
