An article for the exhibition :Museums in the 21st century
http://www.studio-international.co.u...re/museums.asp

Meanwhile, the Museum of the Hellenic World in Athens, Greece, by Anamorphosis Architects, puts technology to a symbolic use in an empty shell, where historical exhibits are replaced by a virtual display of cinematic proportions. The fluid design signifies historical eras through shapes, lighting and materials: a marble and stone theatre in hard shadow suggests classical antiquity, a dome with mosaic-style surfaces under diffuse lighting symbolises Byzantium; and wood, glass and metal cells with dramatic silhouettes conjure up the Modern era. The scheme typifies the trend towards 'experience architecture'. When it opens in 2011, it will invite visitors to enter a dialogue with their cultural identity.

The design that this museum shows is really impressive and i guess the colection will be beyond our minds.
Great news for Greece.

views of the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Park wich is under construction:













The project involves the re-utilization and metamorphosis of a large dilapidated industrial site of 60.000m2 in the heart of Athens on Piraeus Avenue, through its conversion into a cultural park centered around Greek history, mythology, and landscape. The design of Anamorphosis-Architects comprises the general concept, the master plan, the landscape and three major built-complexes of educational, cultural and recreational use, in one integrated whole. The park is also integrating the adjacent existing buildings of the Hellenic Cosmos including the Old Reception, the Virtual Reality Theatre and the Conference Centre. The CPHC is planned to become a new cultural centre of national and international appeal, a new agglomeration-pole, as a result of its programme and architectural design.


The three major complexes of the CPHC are:
A) the Exhibition and Research Centre
B) the Art & Education Centre for Children
C) the Museum of the Hellenic World

The principal intention of the FHW is to create a complex of cultural and educational orientation. That is a complex which would not simply accommodate some standard cultural activities, but also invent new kinds of programmes through spatial means that could also have a direct urban impact. In that context Anamorphosis-Architects introduces design more as a medium for educational and communicational purposes and less as a simple sheltering of a given functional programme. Furthermore the design proposal is very much based on the obliteration of the boundaries between landscape and buildings and also between architectural and urban scales.

The general design concept is based on an instrumental and contemporary understanding of history and myth as a recurring morphic logic, active and inspirational, in everyday life, and so, capable of generating new spatial and urban contextualization - a concept opposed to any sterile idealizations and symbolic commemorations. Furthermore, the way in which Greek history and mythology relate organically with certain landscape features and gestures has become the major principle of our design, from master plan to detail, and then elaborated into a general morphic paradigm of instrumental and educational character.

Nikos Georgiadis elaborates on the concept of the extended architectural site, in a spatial/psychoanalytic context, in 'Tracing Architecture', AD/Architectural Design, Vol 68, 3-4/1998, guest edited by Nikos Georgiadis, see Editorial pp.7-10.


The CPHC will be realised in three phases: The first phase includes the Exhibition and Research Centre and the Art and Education Centre for Children, and the second includes the Museum of The Hellenic World. The first phase started in Spring 2007.

Views of the Exhibition and Research Centre



The Exhibition and Research Centre of the CPHC, (Complex A) includes two subcomplexes:
1. The Research Centre, the Open-air Theatre and the Small Village.

This complex elaborates on the hybridic spatial structure of the Greek ancient theatre which arises as a natural growth and evolution of the inclined landscape of the hill, in contradistinction to the finite form of a freestanding building. It is a composition of an open-air theatre with a building block whose volume alludes to the inclined but also steep form of Greek hills, while its structure alludes to the metallic frame of a ship prow. At its top, the complex is completed with a small village accommodating workshops and exhibitions, whose form alludes to the shape of proto-urban Greek settlements. The complex includes offices, virtual-reality laboratories, library, shops, restaurant and cafe. Its inclined top is landscaped and planted and includes a number of earth and water installations of variable character. It includes the main entrance to the park as well as the start and end of the Route of Mythology, a journey via land and water, and so becomes a nodal point for the circulation inside the CPHC and a natural threshold towards the outside urban fabric.


2. The Exhibition & Media Centre, the Route of Mythology and the Cave of Mythology.
This complex is the natural continuation of complex “1”, and of the concave shape of the open-air theatre. It is entirely covered with earth, and its external form appears as a smooth, landscaped and planted hill which becomes the major green area of the CPHC. It includes the large Cave of Mythology and the main part of the Route of Mythology, two major landscape/waterscape schemes which include a number of installations and host events based on ancient Greek myths. It also includes a gorge, small caves, and oval shape passages alluding to the Greek beach-line and rocky coast, various open-air features like exhibition, play and sitting areas, as well as an open-air cinema at the top. Its interior contains large exhibition galleries for temporary exhibitions of artistic and commercial character, auditorium, a media-school with lecture rooms, bookshop, self-service restaurant and cafe. The galleries of complex ‘”2” form one expanded double leveled wing which penetrates into the body of complex “1”. They can operate as a whole or in subdivisions, depending on the exhibitions’ requirements.

The Exhibition and Research Centre, the Art & Education Centre for Children and the Museum of the Hellenic World are the three major complexes which form the Cultural Park of the Hellenic Cosmos (CPHC).

views of the Art and Educational Centre for Children:






Keeping with the general morphic, historic and mythic, paradigm, the design of this complex focuses specifically on the morphic parameter of creativity and play. Design here aims to play an explicit educational role, highlight and transmit the dialectic of forms and creative imagination over content and meaning. This complex consists of three major homeomorphic spaces in a synthesis which is based on their common morphic features. These are the “hut”, the “ship”, and the “flying paper-airplane” (alluding to three simple, paper-folding, constructivist gestures) which in turn elaborate the relationship between “inside” and “outside” in three characteristic ways referring respectively to the earth, the water, and the air, and their concomitant structures. These spaces are designed to host educational and artistic activities for kids, involving workshops, exhibitions, play and so on. The complex also includes library, eating and resting areas, small aquarium, and storage, while its roof is multiply accessible and used for play and educational programmes. It also includes an archaeological finding from the Byzantine period, which was discovered in the area during construction, and eventually preserved on site. The connection of the complex with its adjacent ones occurs through designed journeys (long walks and water-journeys by boat) which are meant to emphasize the process of expedition and exploration

And lets not forget that the main purpose of this project is to educate kids about the history of Greece.It will be a lesson in history involving boats and trains for moving around the parts of the museum, use of the latest technology and all that in a very modern and futuristic environment that will make the whole "lesson" a very fun experience.
Kids will love it!!I wish we had these things when i was a school boy too
And apart from that its nice to see for one more time that when Greek architects get the chance they can do great things!

mmh, I like the amphitheatre, everything looks simply justified, but the rest... too much elements; The function of each element is invaded by form, I think. I better like a space that make the user know it exists in the way the light is used, not how its brought to the interior between so much disjunctives.

Also can a mod please change the status from "Pro" to 'U/C" and the thread title. The museum is only a part of the complex.

[img]http://i43.************/2itgb4k.jpg[/img]

The architects in their website call the project with the name:

"The Cultural Park of the Hellenic Cosmos"
