Technopolis, Athens

Athens, Greece, Europe: Technopolis building, a former gas factory that's been turned into a 30-acre contemporary cultural complex
100 Piraeus Street
Greece 11854
Tel: 30 210 346 0981's insider take:

In Gazi, the old gasworks next to Keramikos, is this enormous art project, established in 1999. It consists of eight buildings converted from gas containers, chimney stacks, and furnaces, and named after Greek poets (Andreas Embirikos, Angelos Sikelianos, Yannis Ritsos, etc.). At the center is The Millennium Globe, a sculpture by Nikos Yiorgos Papoutsides symbolizing world peace. The place is still very much evolving, as is the surrounding area—it's often called a "factory for generating art."

Open Mondays through Fridays 10 am to 10 pm.
