Greeks Build Braille-Wrapped Pharmacy for People, Not Giants

No, you are not looking at a pill bottle for Homer's Cyclops.

This is the Placebo Pharmacy in Athens, Greece, designed by KLab Architecture. Within it resides a 600 sq meter pharmacy with practitioners' offices on the second floor. The name is actually a reference to the building's original shape. As the design team explains:

The octagonal shape of the existing structure was re-formed into a cylinder in order to create a spiral which seeks to converse with the rapid motion on Vouliagmenis Avenue, the urban artery on which the building stands.
