Arsakeio School of Ekali copper dome, Greece

From 1969 to1972 the Educational Association constructed the complex, which houses eight Tositseia Schools of Ekali under its roof.  The design of the buildings, according to the latest requirements of school planning, facilitates the sound and effective educational process.  In each building complex there are separate supportive care facilities, which meet the various and diverse needs of the educational program.  

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.
