The Name Agorara
In ancient time the Agora was a central public space in Greek city-states. It is the best representation of the city form’s response to accommodate the social and political order of the polis. The literal meaning of the word is ‘gathering place’. The agora was the centre of the athletic, artistic, spiritual, trading and political life in the city.
In modern Greece the word agora represents a place where you find many shops and people trading goods. If you visit Greece and you ask what Agorara means for the people, the response you would get is ‘it’s a very large market‘.
