King`s George Α` Square 13-19, Patras
Patras, Greece

The HLA is a  seven flour building located in the most central square of Patras, King’s George A’  Square. It is a cultural centre and hosts services of the Municipal Theatre of Patras, the Municipal Dancing Department, the Deputy Mayorship for Education, transparency and electronically consultancy, the Museum of History and Ethnology and two conference rooms. It was built on 1973 during the Greek Military Junta and until today it serves its initial reasons for being built. It is a representative building of the architecture of that period, a tall and drab building with no sign of architectonic beauty. After the end of junta, the Municipality of Patras changed the façade of the building in order to preserve the neoclassical architecture of the environment
