Θέα του πάρκου προς τα βορειοανατολικά. Μέχρι σήμερα στην περιοχή του «λόφου» έχουν φυτευτεί πάνω από 300 δέντρα και 8.500 θάμνοι.

No Shadows now and in the future .A Park with olives in Athens , in a hot summer should be like hell. Probabli the architect never walk inside the park under a temperature o 40 degrees .

@Sevillano47

What you see at this moment is an unfinished view of a part of the park.
Also although the trees are already quite big it will take some time until they really grow and reach a bigger hight.

http://www.snfcc.org/the-stavros-nia...park/overview/

(...)

Allées leading further into the Park, lined with tall pine and olive trees interspersed with smaller trees, create contrast between closed and open space, light and dark, color and texture. At the center of the Park is the Great Lawn, an open space for larger gatherings, which can also function as a venue for concerts, festivals and films.

Greece’s strong horticultural tradition is celebrated in the open, sunlit Mediterranean Garden. The plant palette alone will make the garden a destination: evergreen and other endemic plants such as boxwood, coronilla, cistus, and lentisc, salvia, oregano, thyme, lavender, rosemary, roses and euphorbias – all add to the sensual pleasure of a visit. Each month will bring a new color, and each season will introduce a different combination of flowers or foliage.

From the Mediterranean Garden, curving landscaped pathways wend their way up a gentle grade to a summit 32 m high. Beneath the earth is the building that houses the Library and Opera House, making the hill the green roof for the structure. One of the largest in Europe, the green roof significantly reduces air conditioning requirements. The summit offers spectacular 360-degree views of the sea to the west, the Acropolis to the east, and the cultural and educational park below, as well as of the Agora, the central plaza between the Library and the Opera House. Another prize awaits the visitors of the Park’s summit: a 900 m2 glass-walled Reading Room, a space for people seeking a quiet area to read and reflect or to appreciate the view. The Reading Room is in terms of functionality an extension of the Agora, and will become a place to organize cultural and educational events as well.

Looking to history to shape a modern performance venue

Arup’s Alban Bassuet describes the acoustic design of the Greek National Opera at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, which incorporates lessons gathered from historic venues in Greece and around the world.

You see only olive trees because what you see is photos from the unfinished park. The pine trees and the rest of the tall shadow trees are cultivated and grow outside of Athens; All will be transported in Faliro and planted during the next months, according to the specific planting schedule of each species.

This project is an absolute stunner for Athens! I like the green, it's an oasis among the plethora of white buildings near it. Congratulations, hope this can be incentive for tourist to come too.

I didn't like the project when i saw it back then but i'm definitely changing my mind now. It looks amazing, both the library itself and the surrounding space.

When will it finally be open to the public?

Planting in the hill area is continuing rapidly. Up till now, 400 trees and 27.000 shrubs have been planted. At the same time, waterproofing and infrastructure works at the green roof of the car parking building are being carried out.

Οι εργασίες φύτευσης του λόφου του πάρκου συνεχίζονται με γρήγορους ρυθμούς. Έως και σήμερα έχουν τοποθετηθεί 400 δέντρα και 27.000 θάμνοι. Παράλληλα πραγματοποιούνται εργασίες στεγάνωσης και υποδομής του φυτεμένου δώματος του κτιρίου στάθμευσης.

The last photo is really incredible and I think that it is one of the best that have been taken by Yiorgis Yerolymbos during the construction of the new cultural center. It reminds me some photos from the land art movement and artists such as Dennis Oppenheim for example and maybe it could be an interesting idea to organize an exhibition emphasizing to the most conceptual or abstract photos that have been created by the construction of this massive project, focusing to the materials, surfaces, textures, colors and their interactions.
Great progress as usual and the anticipation becomes more intense as we are heading to the completion of the huge energy canopy.
