Tobacco Factory

In Urban by Marianna KatsaouniLeave a Comment

This is a staircase inside the old tobacco factory of Athens – perhaps one of my all-time favourite pics in my portfolio. Last year I worked on a documentary about this building and its current state. The building seems to be on the threshold between a relic and a monument. Beautiful renovated facets and a dichotomised interior – a relic on the ground floor and a library on the first floor. The very aim of the documentary was to raise awareness regarding this building and its monumental value. It is, after all, one of the most important examples of early industrial architecture in Greece.
