This thesis is about building an Experimental shipyard for wooden boats in Salamina isle. Specifically the building will be located at the far end of Punta peninsula in Ampelakia; opposing the Perama shipyard and neighboring with the archaelogical place of the ancient city of Salamina, the ancient port and the sea area where the naval battle of Salamina took place. Today there is a shipyard and ship refinery operating in the area leaving the historical place unexploited. The environmental degradation along with the abandonment and abuse of land and sea has led to deprecation and indifference for the area. Recognizing the historical importance of the region and the importance of the local shipbuilding tradition we created a center in which will be operated fully equipped wooden shipbuilding workshops and classrooms, auditorium and exhibition spaces, with the ambition to bring the human element in the area, create jobs and people (researchers, students, amateurs, etc.) can learn the art of wooden shipbuilding, which is inextricably linked with the history and culture of the island.
In addition they can come to contact with the traditional and modern techniques and take part in the 'building' of a vessel from the design and cutting of wood to the construction and its launch. That way they will participate in an experiment which will have as catalysts the current knowledge and techniques, in the environment of modern times and draw conclusions and new knowledge on shipbuilding. The Centre will include a museum and exhibition spaces and a library concerning modern and ancient Salamis, shipbuilding and other matters directly or indirectly related to the operation of the Centre. The ultimate objective of the Centre is to upgrade the overall area in order to become accessible to the public so that visitors can wander the site of ancient Salamis to limit the operation of dismantling facilities and yards and give the region a more human character.
