The project is not only about organizing functions and facilities. It is about creating a cultural center which gives shape and form to the vision of the Greek American Community, interpreting the Greek spirit in a contemporary and creative way.


The geometry and the clarity of form are basic elements of the Academy Complex which is organized around two main axes of open area public space. Facilities are seperated in four sectors: religious, athletic, educational and publc uses. Each sector consists of distinctive building-units designed in simple forms, inspired by the human scale of Greek tradition.
