Yesterday, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., around 1,200 citizens were given a guided tour of the Metro station in Papafi, where they had the opportunity to board the train and take photos of the area, while today, from the start of the guided tours until 11 a.m. morning about 200 people had signed up for the tour, which lasts 15-20 minutes. Also, 800 people were given a guided tour yesterday, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Metro station in Pylaia, while today it is expected that more people will be given a guided tour as a long line of citizens has formed waiting to register.
The Metro station in Papafi was designed by the architect Maria Maggiorou. Like all stations it has a central platform with doors that isolate it from the track area and open only when the train arrives. The trains are state-of-the-art, super-automatic, driverless and use a modern wireless signaling system to communicate with the Control Center.
The Metro station in Pylaia is located on an area of 50 acres and consists of two main building complexes designed by the architect Polyxeni Antoniou. These complexes house the train parking and maintenance facilities and the system’s Operation Control Center.
Open House is an international architectural institution that began in 1992 in London as a two-day free architectural tours held once a year. In Thessaloniki, it has been organized since 2012 by AMKE Open House Greece as a non-profit activity based on volunteering, sponsorships and donations. 66 buildings participate in the program of guided tours that have been taking place since yesterday.
