The project, located approximately 4.5 km from the centre of Athens, has been designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) and involves the construction of an ecologically sustainable multifunctional centre over a total area of 232,000 m², largely devoted to a public park.

The project involves the construction of the Greek National Opera (33,000 m²), which includes a main 1,400-seat theatre and a 400-seat experimental theatre; the National Library (24,000 m²), capable of housing 750,000 books and a hillside park (approximately 145,000 m²) with 1,500 m² of buildings.

Area: 170,000 m²
Opera: 33,000 m²
Library: 24,000 m²

The scaffolding covering the opera house has finally come down, revealing the photovoltaic canopy and the reading-room/lighthouse under construction right beneath it.

This is the view from the city, looking towards the sea.







And in this photo, taken by Yiorgis Yerolymbos and posted on the center's official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SNFCC/photo...type=3&theater
the underside of the canopy is seen in detail.

Also some photos I discovered on facebook, of the top of the canopy and the interior of the opera house.

amazing, can't wait to visit Athens to see full effect in person. I am assuming the photovoltaic cells will provide all the energy needed by this complex.

On the rise: Renzo Piano set to transform an Athenian parking lot into cultural hub

Architecture / 19 Nov 2015 / By Ellie Stathaki
http://www.wallpaper.com/architectur...o-cultural-hub

Quote:
Renzo Piano’s ambitious scheme for the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre is set to change this. Comprising the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera in a 170,000 sq m landscaped park, this new complex is located some 4km south of the city centre and aims to restore the long lost connection between Kallithea, and consequently Athens, and the sea.

The project was born in the late 1990s, when first the National Library and then the Greek National Opera approached the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), the philanthropic organisation set up by Greek shipping magnate Stavros Spyros Niarchos (1909-1996), for financial help in order to upgrade their facilities. The foundation decided to combine the two requests, add a public park and launch an international competition for the project – the largest and most complex of its kind for them. The chosen site was an area of 211,000 sq m in southern Kallithea that served as a parking lot during the 2004 Athens Olympics. The Renzo Piano Building Workshop won the commission in 2008.
Piano’s clever proposal revolves around an artificial hill looking out towards the sea. It reaches a height of 32m and partly becomes the cultural complex’s accessible green roof. The centre sits at the site’s southernmost point and includes the project’s two main functions, placed within two wings. It marks the culmination of the park’s gentle slope and offers great views of the sea. The connection to the sea is further underlined by the presence of the esplanade, a brand new, 30m-wide canal that will run along the site’s main north-south pedestrian axis.

The opera comprises two auditoriums of 400 and 1,400 seats, while the library will be a valuable public resource. A striking, glass-enclosed, multifunctional space, called the Lighthouse, will offer 360-degree views of Athens and the sea. The two wings are united by a central open-air public space, the Agora, as well as several shared exhibition and conference rooms, a café and a bookstore.

Earthquake-proof shoring solution for new iconic structure in Athens
Quote:
Earthquake-proof shoring solution for a suspended energy roof
The entire structure of the Greek National Opera is fitted with an additional 10,000 m² large canopy. This is suspended about 12 m above the actual roof and thus approx. 40 m above ground level – the architect compares it with a flying carpet. This additional roof is actually the central element in order to achieve the planned target of emission neutrality. The construction consists of a prefabricated ferrocement panel arrangement which is subsequently spliced together with a mortar fill. Solar modules supply the "green" energy to cover part of the electricity requirements of the complex. The shape of the canopy resembles a convex lens – the cross-section therefore tapers towards the edges. Thirty very slender steel columns support the construction and are arranged in a 15 m grid formation on a steel frame. Load transfer into the ground takes place via the building´s supporting columns positioned below. Visually, the columns seem to merge into the supporting structure of the Greek National Opera.

A major challenge for this very extraordinary architecture and the special design of the roof was the realization of the required shoring solution during construction phase. In the process, the scaffolding has to assume a variety of functions. On the one hand, it serves as a support for the prefabricated ferrocement modules and simultaneously allow fine adjustment of these modules in their final positions. On the other, safe working areas with easy access for the required assembly work and concreting operations had to be created around 2 m under the roof surface. Last but not least, the temporary scaffolding construction had to be earthquake-proof.
