Participation of the GSA in the “OPEN HOUSE ATHENS 2016” event.

Within the framework of the “Open House” event held on Saturday April 16th, the Central Service of the GSA taking part in the festivities was open to the public aiming to promote an awareness on its purpose, an acquaintance with the archival material and the intrinsic architecture of its premises

“Open House” is an international event originating from the idea to promote and designate the underlying importance of architecture in general but more effectively to give prominence to its role in everyday life. The event literally extends an invitation to all those who wish to apprehend the merit of a well-designed and constructed architectural environment.

The premises of the Central Service of the GSA constitute an architectural prototype as it was constructed in view of all the contemporary demands of an Archival Service. The blueprint of the actual building of the Central Service of the GSA, which was in fact the result of a collaborative project undertaken by architects Dimitrios Dakanalis, Stathis Boubiotis, Andronikos Tsigounis and Christos Floros was awarded the first prize in a Panhellenic Architectural Competition conducted in 1978.

The visitors were given the opportunity to attend a tour to the premises and grow familiar with its inherent architectural distinctiveness which fully complies with all contemporary demands for a proper function of the National Archival Service. Τhe public were given a cordial welcome by members of the staff and architect Mr Christos Floros.
