The existing thesis is about the design of an educational Center of Astronomy and Culture in Agios Srefanos, Volos.
Since ancient times, astronomy had a major role in people’s life and in culture’s evolution. Building a center of astronomy and culture is a need of our era.
The aim of this project is the creation of a building which could be used for lessons and other projects for the astronomy team and also any other act such as conferences, student competitions etc. All of them will aim at students and general population’s introduction to the science of Astronomy and Astrophysics and Space science.
Moreover, the building could be used for cultural purpose for the residents of Agios Stefanos which is an area partly cut off from the city of Volos. In the building’s rooms could be organized lessons for children of all ages. They also could be used as a place for children to gather at their spare time and as a studying space and a library.
The specific location has been selected because it offers excellent criteria for observation, also it is close to the city of Volos and the highway. At the same time, the location because of its natural beauty attracts people for recreation.
