Ellinikon International Airport, sometimes spelled Hellinikon (Greek: Ελληνικόν) was the international airport of Athens, Greece for 63 years up until 28 March 2001.
In 2016 when after 22 months of negotiation, it was announced that the Greek state and the Lamda Development consortium signed an agreement, which is set to be ratified by the Greek parliament, for the construction of a metropolitan park, in the vein of New York’s Central Park.
The revitalization of Ellinikon is the biggest project of its kind in Europe and the most ambitious development project ever undertaken in Greece. The Project has been specifically designed to positively impact the local, regional and national economy, by adding significant new investments, employment opportunities, and uses in key areas such as tourism, culture, entrepreneurship, R&D, and the environment.
The Experience Center was conceived and developed for this urban renewal project, which focuses on people and the environment, and at the same time focuses on the future.
The Experience Center takes you on a journey through a world of innovation, sustainability and ambition. Through five themed zones with impressive features and interactive experiences, you will learn the key goals, philosophy and characteristics of The Ellinikon.
Bastard Orange Lighting Design was commissioned by Hypsos to create the lighting design for all experience areas.
