||Forth Research Offices
This building contains
facilities for theoretical, non-wet lab research and offices for the
Technology Park that is located on the same campus.
Working spaces are diversified both in plan
and form in order to create a more lively environment than is typically
found in commercial office buildings. Spatially, the unit relates to
the main building of the campus and forms, together with the micro-electronics
unit. the gateway of the east-west expansion of the institute. Access
to the building is expressed in three dimensions, in the form of a ramp/
colonnade that runs through the administration towers, linking them
with the Research Offices. This movement between the buildings continues
Le Corbusier's rationale for the Carpenter Centre in a freer yet geometric
organisational form. As at the Acropolis, Delphi, Lindos and the Greek
Island settlements, the expression of movement becomes a significant
element of the architectural and urban organisation.
The project was designed in association with
the Technical Office of the Ministry of Industry. Research and Technology
and the technical staff of FORTH.
