Galata Greek Primary School with its neo-classic architectural style was constructed in the late nineteenth century for the education of Greek children in Istanbul. The school had to suspend its activities in September 1988, due to the demographic changes that arose in Istanbul during the 60s and 70s. In 2001, it started operating as a nursery school in order to increase the student capacity and improve the quality of education, but was eventually forced to close again in 2007, due to lack of students. In 2012, the Galata Greek Primary School opened its doors to one of the two main exhibitions of the Istanbul Design Biennial, “Adhocracy”, curated by Joseph Grima.
