Description: A.R.I.S. as a member of consortium took part in the open procedure for the selection of a contractor, for the Study of the 2th Gymnasium of Parikia in Paros. The building block of the School is framed by a Municipal Road and two rural routes. In the surrounding area there are houses, garages, small facilities and agricultural land. The good understanding of the surrounding area and the precise implementation of the school building program were combined and exploited by the study group on the proposal approach. The school complex is identified with the shape and structure of the "Cycladic City". Τhere is a combination of perforated and compact sections formed by corridors, buildings, sheds, pergolas, etc. The variety of colors is also applied to our proposal, especially in the interior. The Gymnasium building includes areas of Administration, Multipurpose Hall, Laboratories, Classrooms, Gym. Outside there is a courtyard with cobbled paths, dense planting, ramps, sitting areas and lighting facilities. In addition to the indoor gym there are basketball and volleyball courts. The study also proposes the construction of an open-air amphitheater suitable for cultural events, which will be harmoniously incorporated into the ground. The parking area is located near the main entrance.
