In the urban complex of Thessaloniki, which consists of the unification of towns spreading north from the Thermaik golf, a void of functions and educational installations is presented. A large area educational park which could support buildings and many educational functions away from the chemical hazards and bad psycology of traffic and life in the city. A place where a visitor walks and participates in open or specialized educational activities. A place of relaxation, thought and recreation
The subject of design is the harmonization of the built enviroment with natural surroundings in a landscape of approximately 2900 ares. My goal is for the visitors to walk paths within the landscape. This is achieved by walking through the network of paved paths which lead to buildings, or by climbing to the kiosks which are circled by the paved paths, or by walking random paths.
The selection of the specific area is based on the urban character of the area which could attract visitors not just from Thessaloniki but also from other nearby municipals.
The purpose of this proposal is not just the execution and view of some performances in the closed or open spaces. It is mostly the education that is realized in many ways. Education of youth in different terms than that of the standard “lecture-in-a-classroom”.
My vision is something different. To combine nature with human intervention. The desings offer rich plantation, small elevations of the ground, small triangular pavements with paths and the subtle presents of building. Main activites of walking thinking and education. Learners here have a chance to explore their interests in open or closed spaces, in the kiosks or under a tree.
