This is a school complex located in the center of the urban fabric of the Municipality of Heraklion. The main problem was finding a plot of land in the urban area of sufficient size for this use. The plot is 1500 square meters in size, which makes it part of the problem to be solved. After the analysis of the building program and the on-site conditions, the solution of three building volumes was chosen. One volume has a trace on the ground floor while the other two hover over the school yard. This option aimed to maximize the school yard while at the same time serving the building program
Schools as an educational structure have a great impact on what we call society. They set the principles for each of us, giving us basic knowledge, to think and judge the world and the way we live. They shape the core of processing the information we receive in ways that we later realize have been permanently installed. The space in which this happens is very important for how children interact with the environment. It is the first image of bourgeois society that we have living in it. The built environment we face when we come in contact with this first society of ours shapes our future relationship with the rest of society. The basic idea for this building is to create a movement within the structure that is also released by the building itself. We want the freedom of movement outside the building to be permanent. The basic functions should obviously be done inside the building but also can happen outside. So we want to give great importance to the amount of yard space we give and its quality. The plot is limited, albeit of medium size, and our main goal is to provide the largest possible ground floor space for students to relax. Based on the building data and the needs of the educational structure, we calculated the maximum possible area that we can cover and kept the necessary functions on the ground floor while the rest were distributed on the other floors. Our main thought was not to build a compact volume that would include everything but the functions to be distributed in smaller. The required volume was divided into 4 and based on the needs the 2 pieces were kept on the ground while the rest were placed suspended. All the functions were connected with the necessary vertical and horizontal axes of movement with the aim of both the continuous operation of the spaces and the contact of the children with each other. A patio therefore connects all the floors with each other creating a circular relationship in the level and a cylindrical one in the space. The two suspended volumes of the ground floor from a static point of view were treated in such a way that their support does not create on the ground floor as a closed inner courtyard but leaves it free and communicates with the surrounding urban space. We therefore support the two volumes on many oblique thin steel columns creating the necessary static conditions to create a suspended foundation on which the volumes will be statically secure.

The relationship between geometry and architectural design are described and discussed along some examples. Geometry is the fundamental science of forms and their order. Geometric figures, forms and transformations build the material of architectural design. In the history of architecture geometric rules based on the ideas of proportions and symmetries formed fixed tools for architectural design. The relationship between geometry and architectural design are described.
