Renzo Piano’s “Flying Carpet” Canopy Tops a New Cultural Center in Athens
Quote:
“Architects spend an entire life with this unreasonable idea that you can fight against gravity.”

So said Renzo Piano, but, however unreasonable he may believe this premise to be, the architect has come closer than ever to achieving the feat with an astonishing new structure in Athens, Greece. The Energy Canopy is a huge roof covering the new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, a mixed-use building designed to house new facilities for the National Library of Greece and the National Opera. The complex is due to open in 2016, and upon completion, the Energy Canopy will provide power to run both institutions.

According to Piano, “The canopy represents a cloud hovering over the highest point of the hill.” In a recent presentation on the construction development, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation referred to the roof as an architectural “flying carpet.” These are apt descriptions for a structure that stretches the limits of both engineering and environmental design: despite measuring 330 feet by 330 feet (100 meters by 100 meters) and weighing 4,700 tons, the canopy appears to levitate far above the Greek National Opera building — creating an illusion of a very light structure resting on slender supports.
The roof is composed of 717 individual precast panels supported by 30 columns and is topped with photo-voltaic elements that will produce 2GWh of electrical energy per year and help fulfill the energy requirements of both the opera and library buildings below. Further key components of the project will be completed in the coming months include the Lighthouse — a multipurpose event space on the roof of the Greek National Opera — along with glazing for the façades, floors, suspended ceilings, and seating areas for spectators.

Top 12 leisure buildings to look out for in 2016

http://www.attractionsmanagement.com...&codeID=320372
Quote:
The year ahead promises much excitement in the world of leisure architecture and design. New designs will be unveiled, ongoing projects will take shape and we will have our first look at completed buildings from the likes of Snøhetta, Thomas Heatherwick, Renzo Piano, Bjarke Ingels Group and David Adjaye.
To celebrate the New Year, we have compiled a list of 12 projects scheduled for completion in 2016 that we are particularly excited about.

The Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre, Athens, by Renzo Piano Building Workshop

Renzo Piano is back with a bang. The designer of London’s Shard tower has created this stunning new home in Athens for both the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera. The structure – which features a sloping grass roof with panoramic views of the sea – has already been described by acclaimed architect Mike Davies as “a work of pure genius.”

wonderful project, wonderful location. Beyond everything, it is amazing to construct such a project during this economic crisis. Because this complex will be a huge investment to the future and cultural life of Athens.

Do you have any information about the construction of the new building of the National Gallery?

The renovation and the extension of the building of the National Gallery is under construction and is expected to be completed at the first months of 2017.
You may visit this thread for the project, it is mainly in Greek language but you may see some photos and renderings.

The architecture is uninspiring, but that roof... This is going to be impressive.
