On the occasion of the proclamation of Eleusina, Greece as the 2021 European Capital of Culture, Constantine Bouras MAUD’11 completed the architectural design for the conversion of two preserved buildings of the former paint factory IRIS into a multipurpose cultural center.
The repurposing of the buildings produces a space for theater, cinema, music, congresses, art exhibitions and other cultural activities, while part of it is home to the Aeschylus Museum. The creation of the IRIS Cultural Center will contribute to the emergence of the industrial heritage of the city and its sustainable development. The two listed buildings and the chimney of the old factory are particularly interesting examples of interwar industrial architecture and are indissolubly linked to the industrial past of Eleusina and the memory of its inhabitants.
