’100 buildings - 100 stories Places, people and digital storytelling’

The aim of the project:

The historic city of Hermoupolis is rich in architectural heritage, much of which is endangered or decaying. The key idea behind 100 buildings/100 stories is that to preserve their value, buildings need people. Beyond the technical conservation of a building, the local community can keep heritage alive by recognising and sharing its qualitative value: the stories it tells. The challenge of 100 stories/100 buildings was to make citizens aware of the vulnerability of their built heritage and encourage them to engage in its preservation
