Technopolis covers an area of approximately 30 acres and constitutes of one of the most interesting live industrial museums in Europe. It is located in the old Gas factory in Athens, known as “Gazi”, next to Kerameikos. Gazi was gradually transformed into a versatile cultural center, hosting various events. The charm of another era that is given off by the chimneys, the enormous cauldrons (gas containers), funnels and ovens establish the place as a factory of art.
Within its architectural space, one can see a real community, autonomous and self-reliant. The carpenter’s shop, the melting-works, the machine-works, the garage for car repair, the restaurant, the barber-shop, the community clinic, were just some of the facilities offered by a well organized closed economy.
The complex has been completely restored by the City of Athens which is its owner. Today, the area of Gazi serves as an industrial park and is used as a cultural center. Technopolis has been in operation as a cultural center since 1999. Technopolis also hosts concerts, readings and other cultural activities.
