The new headquarters of the Public Power Corporation

The architecture firm Micromega designed the design that will define the new headquarters of the new headquarters of Public Power Corporation in Athens. The project aims to confirm the public nature of the company by creating a public urban park around and below the building.

Through Micromega’s design, PPC’s commitment to sustainable forms of energy will be incorporated by three main spaces that educate and represent renewable sources at the center of the company: sun, wind and water. In creating the new urban park, the architects hope to generate interest in renewable energy sources that are too often forgotten.

The first of the three spaces proposed will be a linear shelter able to host exhibitions, markets and events. Its name will be "Path of the Sun", this because the net ceiling, in addition to supporting photovoltaic panels, will create plays of shadows just through sunlight.

To the north of the park there will be an "Air Garden" including a large amphitheater in the ground that can host shows, meetings and events. The space will be surrounded by a wheat plantation so that the public can imagine the flow of air as it crosses the expanse of ears.

The last space is the "Plaza of Water" formed by a shallow pond that will generate a natural cooling from the transfer of convective heat through the surface.
