Venue - Location
The workshop will be held on 10-12 June 2015 at the Venetian Great Arsenal, Center of Mediterranean Architecture, Old Venetian Harbor, Chania, Crete, Greece.
The Great Arsenal is the largest of the Venetian dry-docks and has been extensively altered many times since its construction in the sixteenth century. Like many Venetian buildings in Chania, it was modified firstly by the Turks who cut off its barrel-vaulted roof, and then again in the late nineteenth century when an upper storey was added after which the building became a Christian school and then the Town Hall from 1928 to 1941. The Grand Arsenal was partly destroyed by the aerial bombardment in 1941 and it has only been completely restored as the Center of Mediterranean Architecture since 1997.
