Please excuse my friend Sercan. The building is finished as of June. But the permanent exhibition is still under development and it's scheduled to open by late 2008, so it's technically still under construction.

The archaic gallery gives the impression of a temple, the light is great and there is a very interesting contrast between the statues and the typical athenian blocks of flats.Day by day it becomes obvious that the concept of the design of this museum is unique and the experience of the museum will be unforgettable for every single visitor..and they will be millions of them the following years.
Is it possible that the installation of the exhibition will be complete until the end of the year?

Cause you dont make a museum to be compared to the exibits inside....you make a museum to present them.....i dont think a classical building under the "model" of the ancient classical architexture Acropolis monuments....worthwhile....the designed is minimalistic and cold...cause the main aim...is the presentation of the antiquities....the true stars of the museum

And let's be thankful for that. There are too many archaic, neo-classic museums with carbon copies of one another around the world. The architect obviously thinks this design is reflective of the present and was smart enough to emulate that in his design. But the design also appropriates some notion of classical Greek architecture through its simplicity.

Like Ellin correctly pointed out, a museum should not replicate the artifacts it holds inside, and I'm sure many Athenians let alone Greeks share the same view.

There has been debate about the design in the Greek forum.
See the actual design compared to Neo-classical mock-ups and you will realise this is the absolute best environment to present the gems of a great civilisation.

The architecture is definetly a quiet achiever here. Bland enough to not detract anything from the monuments, great enough to not distract patrons with its hideousness. What Tschumi has created is nothing short of a masterpiece - a perfect balance of simplicity and grandeur.

No comparison!!!!
Acropolis represents the perfection of the clasical architecture....-and the years will comes will prove it...and the opening of corse....-the New Acropolis Museum will represent the perfection of the museology and the new ways of presenting aniquities and art exibits.....
and as the architect said...."after a very taff time thinking..i have find out that there is not better colour to feel the marbel lightfull than the grey on the back...."
"there is not a better way to exbit the Parthenon statues than presenting them under the sunlight as Phidias insired and create them..."
so before making "fast comment" i will advide you to follow the philosofy of the building...Especially the locals had also bad opinion on the really begining...a short visit on the small exibition for 2 hours takes place the last 3 months have change the first "easy and fast" comments against the museum to a really impresive comments....of the amazing interiors and the work takes place.....As the time aproach for the opening..im getting more and more suprice from the news and the preparations....the Parthenon glass floor...is incredible lit during night.....you can see the statues inside..."the greeks on the horses enjoying the Panathinea day.....and parts of the Titanomaxia battle".....while you change your position of your face on the back the Acropolis monument are lit on golden light......
I really believe Tsumi is genius!!!

but when visitors (like me who visited Athens) will have two different impression and for sure people will compare the effects. Because the museum will give them a different athmosphere and Acropole has much more different athmosphere.

I am not sure if I could explain. But what I mean is "pchychological effect".

It will not give you a different atmospere.....in Athens you allways see these while you walking...different parts of history...prehistoric,ancient,midleages,modern...you see that in the buildings,at the monuments...everywhere...happens the same with Acropolis and the new museum....the antiquities are just delivered in a more update and technolically better place.....
trust me..when you enter in the museum and you face over your head the Caryatides girls...on the upper floor..it gives you the impression you entering to their home...you cant find any better welcome than the smile and the beauty of these girls looking you passing under them....thats why i believe museum is super clever.....it has find the way to feel the antiquities inside not as their new exibition centre...but as their home....because it has been designed to make a bonus on them.....it is strange but you feel the same glory and impression of the perfection of the art of the classical period of Athens.......the differencies of the historic period...and the way it has been al these put together....
Few months to go.....and i hope most of you to find the luck and visit the museum..so everyone will have its opinion....

ps:
A last time info....
The ceremony of the opening of the museum which is planed the first month of 2009 will take place from Dimitris Papaioanou the archist of the opening ceremony of the Olympic games of Athens at 2004.....
as it is also anounced in the opening it is asked to participate the official authorities(Presidents,Prime ministers,Kings,Queens) of the countries all over the world....
