Are the cities we live in, the cities we want?
We are Nefeli Papanagiotou and Mara Petra, and we met each other while working in an architectural firm in Athens in 2005. We soon realised that we shared a common language in Architecture, and while we became close friends, we collaborated, during the years, in a variety of projects ranging from big scale projects to smaller renovations and art installations.
Now, we have decided to place our skills into a formal collaboration, ATH100%, which primarily focuses in our home city, Athens. Through this collaboration our aim is to initiate a constructive dialogue about the unlimited nature of architecture, resulting in the realisation of various projects around the city. Our main goal is to function in a more social way, to learn and evolve and to collaborate with people with different skills and approaches exchange of ideas and useful practises to the city .
