ENHANCEMENT OF THE NORTH AND SOUTH SLOPES
Enhancing of the north and south slopes of the Acropolis includes paving of the “Peripatos” walkway and other important pathways, restoration and delimitation of hill slopes, necessary networks and M/E installations as well as a series of new constructions.
Examples of these constructions are the lower level of part of the up-going road starting from the west yard of the Dionysus sanctuary and connecting with the west elevation of the Dionysus Theater and the bridged shortcut part of the “Peripatos” walkway in the east slope.
The three shelters: Dionysus, Asklipios and Halkourgio are new constructions. The first is a replacement and extension of an old construction that shelters an open air sculpture exhibition, whereas the other two are intended to cover an open air exhibition of excavation findings and protect excavated areas. All three shelters have rectangular shapes with slightly pitched roofs made of flat glass panels which are specially designed and stained in patterns in order to shade the pathways below.
