ATHENS | Museum of the Hellenic World | Pro

The Museum of the Hellenic World ( 2009 - 2011) Anamorphosis Architects





www.anamorphosis-architects.com


The design proposal focuses on the concept of a museum of history - not original historical exhibits. The design principle is based on the spatio-psychoanalytic concept of lack (deeply routed in Greek culture) as a critique against the notions of 'collection'/ 'acquisition'. Both as sense of loss of original pieces as well as creative spatial process, lack, led to the formulation of a new museological approach integrating exhibition and builiding into one. Spatiality is conceived, psychoanalytically, as the mode of history, and highlighted both as the major diachronic documentation of Greek civilisation (recurring, homeomorphing, collocating) and the main concept of the building: a spatial monument as opposed to a symbolic memorial.
The proposed continuous strip, self-evolving across the building, produces homeomorphic curved schemes in three distinct, spatial gestures/installations: a) the amphitheatre introducing Classical Antiquity, b) the dome introducing Byzantium, c) the sheltering cell introducing Modern times (17th - early 20th century), covering the overall museum space. Accordingly, three distinct lighting treatments are proposed: a) bright daylight, small sharp shadows, b) indirect, ambient, no shadows, c) cinematic side-lighting, long shadows. Yet, the strip surface employs a gradient synthesis of materials and construction techniques - varying from: a) tectonic, marble, stone, b) cast material, c) timber, glass and metal structures. Client: Foundation of Hellenic World, Athens. Total exhibition space: 6000 sq.m

THE CONCEPT Of the PROJECT, Anamorphosis architects:
The building concept concerns a museum of history - not original historical pieces. It highlights three major historic periods in Greek civilisation: Classical Antiquity, Byzantium, Modern Times: 17th - early 20th century (involving the ultimate expatriation of the Greeks from Asia Minor in 1922, and the rise of new homelands in Greece), also emphasising the intermediate role of Prehistoric, Hellenistic, Roman and Ottoman periods. It belongs to the theme park of the Hellenic Cosmos, whose landscape is also designed by Anamorphosis.

Anamorphosis proposes a spatial-psychoanalytic approach of Greek history which it regards as a permanent exchange between Greece and Asia Minor - the motherland and the "opposite side": a side both own and unknown.

The "missing" of the authentic pieces is seen as guidance rather than disadvantage. The psychoanalytic concept of lack becomes the main design principle. Lack is the spatial critique of the narcissistic making (or unmaking) of the object; it involves both a familiarisation with the loss of it (the original piece, the beloved …) and a creative spatial process of overcoming loss after the completion of mourning. In this context Anamorphosis sees lack as a real condition deeply and repeatedly experienced throughout Greek history, but also as an opportunity for developing a new, critical, museological approach - a spatial museology - vis a vis the notions of "collection" and "acquisition" which are emblematic of today's "museum-culture". That is a total museological approach which activates the untimely, real historic space, beyond the symbolic commemorations of the past.

Spatiality, in the context of lack, is both the major diachronic documentation of Greek civilisation and a critical design concept. Space, instead of becoming a neutral canvas for inscription of negativity and endless melancholic lamenting over the lost property, is hereby activated through recurring, homeomorphing and collocating processes. "Exhibition" and "building" merge as the presentation of historical material and the actual building parts are synthesised into one extended space progressing from large structural elements to mixed-media installations destined to "replace" the absent exhibits. Anamorphosis designs a spatial monument, by reactivating the physicality of historic forms. The "amphitheatre", the "dome", and the "(self-)sheltering structure", share a natural homeomorphy producing a spatial scenario. These are neither symbolic objects, nor abstract sculptural themes, but real spatial experiences (involving distinct qualities of lighting, material and collective function) constantly appearing in various occasions throughout greek history, thus manifesting an intelligence of their own. They are resynthesised in one continuous self-anamorphosed surface: a gesture of morphic persistence and exchangeability across the building, which produces the three major spatial installations of the museum: a) the amphitheatre presenting Classical Antiquity, b) the dome presenting Byzantium, c) the (self-)sheltering cell (covering the previous two installations and overall museum space) presenting Modern Times.
The three installations are distinct spatial experiences elaborated at the levels of lighting and collective function, including respectively: a) bright daylight, small sharp shadows and meeting place; b) indirect, ambient light, no shadows, and congregation place, c) moving image, cinematic side-lighting, long shadows, and audience gathering place. Yet, the strip surface employs a gradient synthesis of materials and construction techniques including: a) tectonic, marble, stone…, b) cast material, spolio…, c) timber, glass and metal structures. The main visitor's route along the main strip surface is always doubly related to the major installations, offering both direct access as well as distant (anticipatory or concluding) views of them.

Is this actually getting built or not? We have been talking about it for years and I have not seen any latest news on it.

I am worried that it will not get built?

We also source our info before we speak in such a tone.
Where did you read 2009-2011 because I can't find it in the links you posted.

Also, you posted a link to concept designs, how misleading is that?

What link? Do you mean the link for the exhibition? The exhibition is for museums that will be constructed and some of them are already finished, such as the new acropolis museum. It is not an exhibition for imaginary projects…The art center Basel which has organized the exhibition is a significant international institution and I do not think that they use false information for an international exhibition in which two major projects from Athens participate, the New Acropolis museum and the museum of the Hellenic world.Anyway the thread is for this new development in Athens and as far I know these are the dates for the construction that are given. If you want to add something else or new in a positive and useful way you are welcomed…

So maybe during the past the construction dates have changed but currently we have these dates…2009 – 2011.
The aim of the thread is to present this incredible project that is going to be developed in Athens as part of the Hellenic world cultural center. I do not have any indication that the project has been abandoned. And some dates for the exhibition that this museum participates:

Ok thanks!
All I would like to say now is an amazing building that should look good when complete, provided that the building will be quite large and grand in scale.

contents from the catalogue of the exhibition Museums in the 21th century...
http://d-nb.info/986922951/04

and an interesting book about the Role of Mathematics in Virtual Architecture by
Michele Emmer with the paradigm of the museum of the hellenic world.

http://www.emis.de/journals/NNJ/Emmer.html



an article for this new museum from Archi-europe.
http://www.archi-europe.com/archi1.php?id=497&cat=2
Museums of the 21st century

After Düsseldorf, Rome and Linz, it is now Lyon's turn (Museum of the Confluences), to welcome up until the 1 st of July a major exhibition dedicated to museum architecture. What are the demands made on the museums of the 21 st century? According to which criteria should they be built? What will be the architectural approach? We have selected four projects among the 27 world projects that have come up with a response to the growing demand of cultural sites. These buildings, which stand out in view of the very particular formal languages of their designers, are seen as the new symbols of cultural identification.


1. MAXXI, Rome (2003-2008)
Zaha Hadid Architects

Under construction, the national museum of the arts of the 21st century is a spectacular complex that is designed like a sculpture. The appearance of the building plays with the context, thus sharing an urban dimension.


2. Lyon Confluences (2006-2009)
Coop Himmelb(l)au

Anchored at the confluent of the Saone and of the Rhone Rivers, this « new generation » museum wants to combine two architectural units, according to a concept triggered by the construction site. One of the elements is a "cloud", a body in levitation, placed on a pedestal. Due to its very nature, its metallic skin will reflect the colours of the sky and of the city. A strong signal, turned towards the city, the "crystal" part is designed like an urban forum that will mark the public point of entry.

© Coop Himmelb(l)au & Armin Hess


3. Museum of the Hellenic world in Athens(2009-2011)
Anamorphosis Architects

The concept developed here is based on one question: what to do when the original lines and objects are missing? History is conveyed through a series of spatial experiences. The ribbons that draw the general form of the monument create three symbolic elements, each linked to a historical period. Each element is given its own specific lighting and deploys a range of reference materials.

© Anamorphosis architects


4. Stonehenge Visitor Centre and Interpretive Museum - Wiltshire, Great-Britain (2005-2007)
Denton Corker Marshall.

Situated around three kilometres from the megaliths of Stonehenge, this single storey building is designed as an abstract form nestling in the landscape. Like geological strata, the nine large steel sections that make up the building give an impression of force. Thanks to the plant covered roof, the architecture becomes a pure landscaped form that seeks above all to make the architecture disappear.

plans:






The Three Installations
By metaphorising the standard architectural terms one could say that: the Classical Antiquity - Amphitheatre installation conveys the experience/practice of the plan (ie an experience of space directly open to the sky above); the Byzantium - Dome installation conveys the experience of the section (ie an experience of spatial intimacy, cutting across space); and the Modern Times - Sheltering Cell installation conveys the experience of the perspective (ie an experience of space via envisaged projections, as recapitulations of the past and anticipations of the future).
The three installations are designed as three distinct spatial experiences. Their elaboration focuses on four aspects: lighting, materials, documentation and function as follows.

Lighting
Lighting design is directed in three distinct modes:
a) bright daylight, abundant, vertical, creating small sharp shadows (amphitheatre area);
b) indirect, ambient, creating no shadows (dome area);
c) cinematic side-lighting, focused, dramatic, creating long shadows, coming from the exhibit - screen etc (sheltering structure).

Materials
The strip surface employs a gradient synthesis of materials and construction techniques - varying from:
a) tectonic, marble, stone (amphitheatre)
b) cast material, 'spolio'… (dome)

Documentation
The way space manifests itself as an Other documentation of history involves processes of:
a) symptomatic encountering objects or worked materials, intrusion of landscape, hybridic syntheses not distinguising between natural and artificial. (amphitheatre);
b) graphic and mosaic treatments of surfaces, small openings (dome);
c) 'moving image' documentation: cinematic, photographic, screens and other projection installations (sheltering structure).

c) timber, glass and hi-tech metal structures (sheltering structure).

Function

Three ways of people-concentration are introduced, related to:
a) assembly, meeting function (amphitheatre);
b) dense, congregation type of arrangement (dome);
c) crowd, already mediated, exposed to the spectacle (sheltering structure).
