Abstract: 
In the recent decade, the Cycladic Islands have experienced a rapid growth in the touristic department, record numbers of tourist arrivals being set every year. This phenomenon creates pressure on the environment, infrastructure and local architecture. Santorini and Mykonos, the most visited islands in the archipelago, already reached a saturation point, being threatened by over-tourism. Reacting to the current local debates, which underline the urgent need for a change in the touristic and architectural fields, a strategy in the islands of Paros, Antiparos and Despotiko is developed. Influenced since antiquity by the extraction of the marble, used for masterpieces such as Venus de Milo or Nike of Samothrace, this material is still very present in the architecture, landscape and local art of these three islands, but its meaning fades away as time moves on. Treating the marble as a conceptual guideline and by reacting to the local, individual context, projects are being designed on each island in an attempt to present an alternative touristic strategy.
