Description

The City of Athens Technopolis, spreads in an area of about 30.000 m2, is a vigorous industrial museum, of incomparable architecture, one of the most interesting of its kind in Europe. It is lodged in the old Athens Gasworks, widely known as Gazi, next to Keramikos and very close to the Acropolis. Its gradual transformation into a multi-purpose cultural center, hosting various events, gives the opportunity to the visitors to tour in a site full of images, knowledge and emotions. The charm of a bygone era, clearly to be seen in the form of the funnels, the gasholders, the chimney stacks and retort furnaces, “conspires” in a way that establishes the “Technopolis” as a ‘factory’ for protecting and generating art, since even in etymological terms the word 'gas' comes from the old German word 'galst' and later 'geist' which means intellect or spirit.
It has been operating since 1999 and it is dedicated to the memory of the great Greek composer Manos Chatzidakis.
In honor of Greek poetry, the eight buildings operating within the “Technopolis” premises, bear the names of great Greek poets: Andreas Embirikos (Room D1), Angelos Sikelianos (D4), Yannis Ritsos (Amphitheater "Athina 9 ,84" radio station), Kostis Palamas (D10), Takis Papatsonis (D6), Constantine Cavafis (D7) and Kostas Varnalis (?8). The symbol of the “Technopolis” is the original sculpture titled "The Millennium Globe", a work by Nikos – Yiorgos Papoutsides, which illustrates the globe surrounded by olive branches and symbolizing the wish and the hope that peace and humanity prevail on the whole world.
