Athens College and Dimitris Daskalopoulos announce a One Category – One Stage Open Architectural Ideas Competition for the design of an Arts Building at Athens College’s Psychiko Campus.
The new Arts Building will function as an educational center and vibrant exhibition space to encourage new conversations about the arts and contemporary culture. It will develop the creativity of students, cultivate and showcase their skills, and enhance arts education provision.
The Arts Building will become a vibrant and creative space where inspirational teaching and the digital world meet and where freedom of expression are encouraged. It will provide access to world-class, inclusive and interdisciplinary arts education and be a space for creative interactivity: for learning, making and debate, and for relating to and experimenting with the visual arts. Teaching will take place in classrooms and laboratories as well as in corridors and the surrounding outdoor space.
The Arts Building will be a place of ‘making’ and ‘interacting’ for students and their families, its teachers, Athens College alumni, the local community and other visitors.
The Arts Building will be named, in perpetuity, “The D.Daskalopoulos Arts Building”.
