What I can see

The former “Biosol” factory today houses the cultural space “Hellenic World” of the Foundation of the Hellenic World. This is one of the most successful industrial building rehabilitations in the city. It has a reception, exhibition venues, a 3D dome, virtual reality spaces, multipurpose halls, and more. The ground floor of the building was a strictly elongated space. The new interventions incorporated gradient shapes and opened up views, which act as spacers and define the movement within the building shell. The first floor was demolished and built again based on the ground floor design. 

What I can't see

It is an innovative cultural space with 300,000 visitors annually and has incorporated cutting-edge technology. The Hellenic World aims at becoming a full cultural park. The Hellenic World currently hosts exhibitions, performances, screenings, conferences, cultural events, 3D tours and other events.
