Architectural Museum

The design aim was the creation of a movement depending on the way an architectural cell is moving in time. The city of Thessaloniki encounters irrefutable examples which demonstrates the architectural transformation through time regarding several factors. As time passes there is an equivalent increase between interaction and information transfer, which resulting in a dynamic multifactorial composition of architectural currents. The design composition creates a fundamental route – a flow over points are placed -points in time and space. The route negates the concept of straight line and incorporates different qualities through the widening and narrowing, while the translucent terrace allows the fluctuation of natural light along the path of the report. The key points are decoded into lightweight (temporary) structures within which differentiates the interior. In the built environment, the public accessible areas, sited in a separate volume creating a secondary entrance. The composition adapts the natural landscape features which results to a continuous degradation, while the skyline is constantly changing as a transliteration of the multilevel history of Thessaloniki. The backbone of the design is the deconstruction of basic architectural elements and their provision to the movement flow of the museum. On the other hand the chambers highlight the most important points in the history of the city. Internally the basic theme was to simulate the sensation of each era, in a more conceptual way. In specific the scale analogy in compare to the issue of covering creates experiences of living. Unlike the dynamic display of information that overrun the visitor while walking through the exhibition, the chambers attempt to gather the essence of every season left by the points of the architecture of the city.
