Hymettus is the mountain of Attica region, which is the nearest mountain to the center of Athens. As a volume, it undoubtedly has a great ecological importance, as it is a natural reserve where many species of flora and fauna harmoniously live. But his wealth has received a lot of anthropogenic activities that have had negative effects. Hymettus is the "yard of our Athenian home" and we have to protect it.
At the area of Agia Paraskevi, which extends to the eastern edge of the Athenian basin to the mountain mass of Hymettus, there are problems of connecting the urban tissue with the natural environment of the mountain. A structured boundary by privately owned facilities in the Hymettus suburban zone makes it impossible for the inhabitants to approach.
At the same time, the few public open-air spaces or green areas, as well as the few cultural spaces available to Agia Paraskevi, seem to emphasize the need for an area that will meet the needs of the inhabitants, having at the same time a supralocal character.
The solution to the problem may be the creation of a museum and its open-air public space. The museum refers to the history of Hymettus, to its coexistence with people, to the myths and the related science. It is a place of culture that offers its visitors a unique experience of interconnection with nature and culture, in a place where the subjects learn what the urban mountain really means to humans. A museum where acquaintance with the visitor will not be limited to one visit but will create the pleasure of repetition because every new visit, depending on the time, will bring new images and new experiences, a sense of friendliness and the possibility of encounter and interaction.
