Into Stoas is an ongoing research project based on the mapping of the passageway exits located in the commercial triangle of Athens, a chaotic district ideal for inquisitive strolls. Natassa Pappa, graphic designer and author of the city guide Into Stoas – Athens Walkthrough, connects the exits by following the old often overlooked exit signs and takes you on a trip through the most interesting passageways in the heart of Athens. This project has a dual goal. Firstly, to promote walking by revealing an alternative walking network in the heart of Athens, when secondly to preserve the images of the vernacular exit signs which constitute a part of the unarchived greek design history.
