The Bunker, this historically significant Second World War building was originally constructed for the German railway company by reinforced concrete, and was used as a shelter to protect travelers who arrived at the Friedrichstrasse Railway station from air raid attacks. Architect Karl Bonatz was commissioned by Nazi Germany the architectural design of The Bunker; the building had a capacity which could shelter up to 3,000 passengers in five floors. Of the original unique characteristics of this historical building were the up to two meter thick walls, as well as the three meter thick concrete roof. The original interior spatial layout has an axially symmetrical layout; while the exterior façade on all four sides is identical – made of raw concrete and accentuated by fine details.”

STERNA NISYROS RESIDENCIES

   June 25, 2014  

We visited a great place, in a unique location, and we would definetly like to share with you! A place where exceptional architecture and art inspiration meet.

Sterna Nisyros Residencies is found within the medieval castle of Emporeios in the island of Nisyros. A new proposal fit for all lovers of eclectic residence, aesthetics and art. For everyone who wishes to spend his holiday in a quiet island of long history, which encourages introspection and strongly resists the intense commercialization and mass tourism. Concept and Development by Greg Haji Joannides.

At the same time, Sterna Nisyros Residences aspires to become a meeting place for artists from Greece and all around the world. Through its Art Residency and Exhibition programme, Time Capsule Art Project, curated by Eleni Koukou, it attempts to provide an environment where contemporary creation will interact with the various aspects of Nisyros’ unique environment.

For Summer 2014 Time Capsule Art Project has invited to Sterna Nisyros Residences prominent artists: the Greek visual artist Kostas Bassanos, the Danish visual artist and performer Augusta Atla, the Greek multi-faceted artist and performer Dimitris Papaioannou and the design group show It’s all, oh so souvenir to me! Vol.2.
