The SNFCC hosted its first ever choreographed art performance

Wednesday, June 25 2014

The first major choreographed art performance was hosted tonight at the site of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), where the “Dance of the Cranes” unfolded; a creative music/dance performance inspired by the project’s architect, Renzo Piano, and executed by Myron Michailidis, the artistic director of the Greek National Opera (GNO).




The central protagonists of this innovative choreography were none other than the 10 construction cranes, working daily on the SNFCC site for the completion of the project, who “danced” to the music of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”, with Renato Zanella’s unique choreography. The music was performed live on the site of the SNFCC, by the GNO Orchestra, conducted by Myron Michailidis.

The unique, fifteen-minute performance began just before sunset. The cranes started to move rhythmically over the most emblematic part of the construction project, the 14-meter high artificial Hill. Construction of the artificial Hill has already been completed while, in the project’s final form, the Hill will cover the buildings of the Greek National Opera (GNO) and the National Library of Greece (NLG), creating a seamlessness of architectural symmetry in a landscape indicative of the project’s superb functionality. The dance moves of the 10 Cranes filled the atmosphere, with the invaluable musical contribution of the GNO Orchestra, and imparted a sense of musicality, of unlimited creativity and optimism to every corner of the construction site.

The attendees at the “Dance of the Cranes” included the internationally-renowned architect of the SNFCC, Renzo Piano, as well as a large host of people, who witnessed the first ever art performance taking place at the site, proving that the SNFCC is already an active part of everyday life in modern Athens.



Andreas Dracopoulos, Co-President of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, said: “From its very conception, the SNFCC has been an inspired project, capable of imparting a sense of magic and a dream-like quality to each and every one of the citizens of this country. The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center is already here. It is a part of Greek society and today’s ‘Dance of the Cranes’ symbolizes precisely this pulse of life which has been beating for the last year and a half on this site, in order to complete, with consistency and great care, a project which is expected to contribute to the improvement of everyday life and bring about a change of mentality for all of us. We are extremely happy and proud to contribute, with all our might, to the realization of such an important project.”

Renzo Piano, the architect of the SNFCC, added: “Making a Dance of Cranes on the Stavros Niarchos Foundation site is a nice way to enjoy a beautiful evening in Athens. But it is also a way to express the energy and optimism sparkling from this place. Music is one of the dimensions of this project. A second one is the new public library. And, finally, the third one is the public park. So welcome here tonight to see the beginning of this park that will soon take people up to the point where they will be able to enjoy at the same time the view of the Parthenon and of the sea”.

With the “Dance of the Cranes”, the SNFCC’s site was flooded with life, musical notes and melodies, already fulfilling, approximately two years before the project’s completion and its delivery to the Greek people, its main purpose: to unite people through Arts and Culture and to offer unique experiences of lyricism, culture and education.

The SNFCC is already here, an active part of life in this country.

The creative dance performance took place under the 3d Annual Stavros Niarchos Foundation International Conference on Philanthropy which is held in Athens, on June 26 and 27.

Thanks for the update, its hard to believe how quick this has gone up. The speed and scale of this reminds me of Calatrava's OAKA roof construction in 2004! Greece may be slow at getting projects started but once they break ground it seems to become full steam ahead (except for the new Acropolis Museum of course!).

The second construction milestone of the SNFCC has been completed successfully
NEWSPRESS KITIN THE HEADLINES
Tuesday, July 29 2014

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is proud to announce that, after 10 months of intensive work following the achievement of the first construction milestone in September 2013, and with strict adherence to the project’s construction schedule, the second important part of the construction was completed successfully and on time. This second milestone concerns the loadbearing structure, supporting the buildings that will be hosted within the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.

Specifically, 100 per cent of the bearing structure—made from reinforced concrete and structural steel—was completed for the buildings of the National Library of Greece, the Greek National Opera and the Car Park Building. Meanwhile, electromechanical and architectural tasks are being carried out inside the buildings, and the final landscaping and planting operations for the Park are underway.

It is noted that the first construction milestone of the project was achieved in September 2013 and included the completion of the excavation, the foundation works for the Library, the Opera and the Car Park buildings, as well as for the rest of the Park’s buildings, using concrete piles. It also included the completion of the Hill’s formation, which involved the necessary tasks of installing underground gravel piles, the completion of the bulk fill, the configuration of retention walls, the completion of the irrigation tank and concrete works for the Park’s buildings and the Waste Management building.

Within the 23 months that have elapsed since the commencement of construction of the SNFCC, the following construction works have been completed: the foundation, the seismic protection of buildings, the complete (100%) construction of the reinforced concrete building shells, and the construction of the Hill. Furthermore, the construction of the elements making up the energy canopy is underway.

The next step in the construction process includes the initiation of works for the erection of the energy canopy, in the fall of 2014, with its completion expected at the beginning of 2015. Moreover, from September 2014 the planting of trees in the Stavros Niarchos Park will gradually continue while from October 2014 the planting of shrubs will also begin.

It is noted once more, that the construction of the SNFCC is implemented by the Salini Impregilo-TERNA joint venture and the project is expected to be completed in 2016. Upon its completion, the SNFCC will be delivered to the Greek State as a gift from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.


The SNFCC in numbers:

•1,100 employees are working presently for the completion of the SNFCC

•23 meters is the maximum height of the NLG Building

•29 meters is the height of the GNO’s stage tower

•32 meters is the highest point of the planted, green roof, and 16 meters is the highest point of the Hill

•1,200 trees and 320,000 shrubs will be planted in total in the Stavros Niarchos Park, 97 trees have been planted so far since May 2014

•1,400 seats is the capacity of the Main Hall and 400 seats is the capacity of the Experimental Stage of the National Opera

•323 seismic isolators have been placed under the NLG and GNO Buildings

•10 cranes are used in the construction of the SNFCC

•68 meters is the height of the tallest crane

•500 different types of machinery/equipment are used in the construction process

•€ 566,000,000 is the grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

The Freeday Cyclists at the SNFCC

07 SEPTEMBER 2014

Having hosted its inaugural dance in June in the context of the Dance of the Cranes event, on the night of 5th of September the SNFCC received its first visit by cyclists in the context of the Freeday Cyclists’ first ride around Athens for the 2014-2015 season.

Around 1,000 cyclists followed part of the future SNFCC cycling route and stopped by the Visitors Center where they learned about the athletic and family activities that will be hosted at the future Stavros Niarchos Park.
This first visit by cyclists in the context of the Freeday Cyclists event was a truly special event in the series of open events and activities that continue to be organized by the Visitors Center and the Journey to the SNFCC program; we look forward to welcoming the Freeday Cyclists again soon!
