The copper dome on the roof of the amphitheater, in Arsakeio of Ekali, was constructed at the beginning of 2011 and it sits very nicely within a landscape of rare beauty. The wonderful architecture of the school spans time and provides encouragement for the students to learn.
The elegant copper dome, was based on the three principles of architecture; beauty, stability and manageability. It balances and coordinates, based on these three elements, going along simultaneously with the functionality and overall image and philosophy that Arsakeio of Ekali emits.
The architect, Nicholas Zafiris, is known for his use of copper in architecture and his experience in constructing domes. Here he has created a huge copper cylindrical structure on the roof of the amphitheater Arsakeio of Ekali. Copper, the eternal metal, will withstand the test of time, offering minimal maintenance and its beautiful, decorative appearance.
The technical installation of copper, was made using standing seam techniques, with the surface of the dome being 670 m2. The thickness of the prepatinated copper used is 0.6 mm, with a total weight of 3,685 kilograms.
