What I can see

The building aspires to be a landmark and comprises monumentality with anthropocentrism, formality with everyday life, and completeness with permeability. It is a cubic volume of uncoated concrete with a glass facade and an impressive multi-storey interior patio. The volume of the building is not a single piece, so it resembles a sculptural composition, which enhances the dialectic between monumentality and the human scale. Archeological findings coexist with the modern design, and function as a transition from the street to the building, belonging both to the public space and the space of the building. The design invites us to admire the ancient by looking down, and the contemporary by looking up. The street and the building are connected with a metal bridge, and there is a light corrugated roof at the entrance.

What I can't see

The building houses the insurance fund of engineers. Its total area is 6,000 sq.m. The architects Nassis Dimopoulos, Roula Saiti, Giorgos Stathopoulos, Ninetta Christodoulea designed a building with energy autonomy and natural lighting entering through the central atrium and penetrating all the floors.
