OMONIA SQUARE ATHENS
(A video of the Politeia Square will be available soon)
The city of Athens is famous for her golden age, great thinkers, writers, and artists along with the magnificent grandeur of her architecture.
The elegant architecture of the Hellenic period (dating from around 500 BC to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC) defined beauty based on balance and proportion. It included three assigned orders: the Doric Order, the Ionic Order, and the Corinthian Order. It was to have a profound effect on the Western architecture of later periods.
In Ancient Athens these structures dominated the landscape and towered in splendour and glory; but now, run-down, decaying buildings are a common feature against the backdrop of narrow streets littered with mindless vandalism, graffiti, and poverty.
Omonia Square is one of the oldest squares in the modern city of Athens and is often just referred to as Omónia. Its location is at the center of the town at the intersection of six main streets: Panepistimiou, Stadiou, Athinas (Athena), Peiraios, Agiou Konstantinou and 3rd Septemvriou (3rd September).
In 1833-1834 the architects Stamatios Kleanthis and Eduard Schaubert planned to develop the site for the kings palace (anaktora).
The original name of the square was “Plateia Anaktoron” (Anax Square), and its construction was in 1846.
Later, the square was renamed “Othonos Square” in honor of King Otto of the illegitimate, counterfeit, Semitic-Germanic Holy Roman Empire. After Otto was replaced in 1862 it took its final name, “Omonoia Square,” because it was here that the leaders of the opposing political factions gave the oath of peace (Omonia).
At the end of the 19th century, the Square underwent several developmental changes.
From 1925 to 1930 the underground railway between Piraeus and Athens was built requiring a further redesign of the square.
The 50s were a period of modernization for Athens and consequently for many public spaces.
After its transformation in 2003 the square lost some of its previous value and prestige with the current design being somewhat of an eyesore.
Today, Omonia Square is a gateway into some of Athens dirtiest neighborhoods. Cheap hotels are its best feature and walking around at night is not entirely safe. There is a good deal of crime in the area as well as unrest, prostitution and illicit drug use.
To revitalize and restore Athens to her former glory Kopsidas the Anax of Ellada is proposing to rebuild and reinstitute the Sovereign Hellenic Politeia, a continuation of the Spartan and Athenian Politeia situated at Omonia Square in Athens.
The Hellenic Sovereign Politeia is the revived old Roman/Byzantine (Constantinople), Athenian, Corinthian, Argive, Lefkadian and Spartan politeia without Semitic involvement and corruption. The old Roman Empire is not the Holy Roman Empire. The Holy Roman Empire is a illegitimate copy of the Roman Empire. (see Kopsidas page).
Omonia Square will be renamed Politeia Square of the Hellenes (Πλατεία Πολιτείας των Ελλήνων) and will house the grand buildings of the politeia.
It is where the Anax of Ellada, the Gerousia and the Apella, i.e., free citizens, occupying a sovereign divine post, will host their popular assemblies and conduct the business of the politeia.
In ancient Athens the Acropolis and Pynx are where the Ekklesia met and did the business of the Politeia.
In ancient Sparta, the Skias was the building where the Apella met and conducted business.
Semites cannot participate in the business of the Hellenic politeia.
The dimensions of Omonia Square are approximately 112 meters x 107 meters. The new proposed Omonia Square, i.e., the Politeia Square of the Hellenes (Πλατεία Πολιτείας των Ελλήνων) are 1100 meters x 1230 meters.
Layout elements of the Politeia Square:
The proposed redevelopment of Omonia Square will also feature 5-star hotels, cafes, restaurants with many of the world's most renowned luxury brands operating around the plaza.
Buildings of historical significance that are within the proposed development site will be dismantled and reassembled in other locations thus preserving the cultural heritage of Athens.
Buildings of magnificent and splendid appearance will replace the dirty neighborhoods and cheap hotels. Athinas Street will be transformed in to a marble promenade lined with enormous faceted sapphire crystal columns leading all the way up to the Pnyx, connecting the Politeia Square with the Parthenon and Pnyx.
Tourists visiting the Parthenon will be able to make their way from the Parthenon directly down Athinas street to the Politeia Square and spend a day shopping or having something to eat at one of many cafes and restaurants.
"We will rebuild all of Athens and Ellada with the finest Hellenic marbles and sapphire crystal" said Kopsidas the Anax of Ellada.
"In the most ancient of times the different “wooden column” elements of sanctuaries were considered “divine,” and their forms were preserved in the marble or stone elements of the later temples of the Doric order. Pure white Thassos marble with multi-faceted blue sapphire crystal panels and multi-faceted sapphire crystal columns will adorn our buildings. Athens will once again become a modern and majestic city with grand boulevards, parks, and gardens. Embellishing the city of Athens will be the new Politeia Square of the Hellenes, a symbol of world peace and freedom.
The blue and white buildings embellishing the Politeia Square of the Hellenes (Πλατεία Πολιτείας των Ελλήνων) will sparkle like diamonds and will be one of the modern wonders of the world.
The City of Athens will also become less populated with people moving to other new cities. The city proper has an estimated population of over 665,000 and around 3.75 million in the metropolitan area. In the city proper population density will be reduced to an estimated 150,000 and around 1.2 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area making Athens one of the most liveable cities, and the envy of the world.
We will power our cities with 100% clean energy. No Fossil Fuels.
It's a big plan, and would be quite a technical achievement; it will provide employment for hundreds of thousands of people for years to come; Greek citizens will educate, innovate, build, manufacture and work their way out of the economic crisis and into prosperity and history,
We will rebuild our cities into the most beautiful cities in the world, starting with Athens, then Sparta, Olympia, Patras, Argos, Mycenae, Ioannina Dodona, Macedonia, and Corinth, and on the islands of Rhodes, Crete, and Delos," said Kopsidas the Anax of Ellada.
We are proposing a new European Union with the Union centered in Athens, i.e., Politeia Square.
A new European Parliament will be built.
We welcome all the people of Europe to be part of a new and free European Union.
The New European Union is designed to encourage economic growth and prosperity throughout Europe for all Europeans.
Interest-free money and credit will be made available for productive investment to all members of the new European Union.
The unpayable debt crippling the people of Europe will be forgiven (see the Seisachtheia page).
Proposed is a new financial and monetary system.
