Innovative, Bioclimatic, European School Complex in Greece

20/05/2012 by architectural competitions

Amazing Crete, the southernmost part of the EU, cradle of the European civilisation, with a rich modern history, excellent climatic conditions and a particularly fertile soil and motherland of the world’s healthiest diet, is also the headquarters of ENISA. The European Network and Information Security Agency (ENISA) thus contributes -with its’ presence in the city of Heraklion since 2005- to the island’s multicultural character.

Promoting European education in Crete is a major vision for SBO. A European school section is already operating in Heraklion and serving ENISA. Through this architectural competition this “section” will become a proper European school. The plot has been identified and reserved for that purpose on the premises of the University of Crete in Voutes, Heraklion.
Our vision is to build a state of the art innovative school building reflecting the multicultural character of its students, providing the optimum educational environment and last but not least integrating an energy efficient conceptual design and the use of renewable energy sources.
