The Theological School of Halki


The Theological School of Halki assigned the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki to study the historical building and make proposals for its restoration. The building was examined historically, architecturally, statically and mechanically.

The result of this study was published in the book The Theological School of Halki: The Building and its Restoration, designed and produced by Red Creative and curated by Sasa Lada and Vilma Hastaoglou, professors at the Architecture School of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

The publication presenting the study of the building along with photos of its current condition aims at potential sponsors for its restoration.

The publication is a hardbound book whose cover features a linear drawing of the façade created by the architectural team of the University. The dust jacket shows the main entrance of the building (aerial photography: Simos Saltiel, Paul Trick).

The historical photographic material was very rich but the photos representing the building's current state were few and of poor quality. Red Creative organised a photo shoot on location in order to produce new photo material.

Technical chapters of the book use imagery given by the study group of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

A chapter presenting the photographers’ visual impressions of the building was added at the end of the book.
