The lack of space of the mechanical engineer department of the University of Thessaly, leads to a new building being proposed, in order to cover their upcoming needs. The new department is suggested just next to the technical compound of the University of Thessaly. Moreover, it follows the form of this group of buildings, but also uses industrial architecture characteristics. The project consists of a central building that covers all the everyday needs of the students and an amphitheater inside an independent building. The faculty is also equipped with an external, independent, multipurpose unit. The main concept was to create an interesting and yet useful building, that manages to follow the existing limiting legislation, in the context of an overall debate between the young architects, which are trapped among the free spirit of the academic design and the existing market reality. Finally there was a lot of attention paid on the building technology, in order for the proposed units to be completely viable and get full advantage of its orientation.
