Temporary Outdoor Event Space, National Theater of Greece Building, Athens, Greece

Building Occupancy / Site Capacity: 

Architecture For Humanity Athens is invited by the National Theatre of Greece and Common View (the arts and parallel events program of the National Theatre)to create a temporary event space in the building's yard, which will be open to the community. The theatre is located in a developing area in the centre of Athens so the proposal aims to open up the building's exterior space to the neighborhood and offer a new cultural public space to both residents and visitors.
The project works as a platform through which people can walk around the yard and experience a series of events that will take place during 10-20 May 2012. 2 stages are created along the path to accommodate the Common Views's live performances, video projections and discussions, while a number of installations give the visitors the opportunity to explore the theatre's history. Within a very limited budget most of the materials were previously used in the national theatre's shows and are recycled in different ways in order to form and inform the public space.
