A New Cultural Beacon for Greece
THE CULTURAL CENTRE IS AN EXAMPLE OF PIONEERING DESIGN AND ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE AS WELL AS ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
http://www.webuildvalue.com/en/works...or-greece.html
Quote:
From the site of an old hippodrome in Athens, a new cultural beacon is beginning to shine
Although it has yet to open to the public, the splendour of the vision behind the project is already evident.
The buildings of glass and concrete rising amid the cranes and scaffoldings inside a huge park have already hosted a number of events to the delight of thousands, revealing their future role as the art and cultural hub of Greece.

Envisioned by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, one of the leading philanthropic organizations in the world, this hub will be home to the Greek National Opera and the National Library of Greece when it opens next year. One event that acted as a preview of its role was the “Dance of the Cranes” in 2014 when 10 construction cranes moved to the music of Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” performed live by the opera’s orchestra.Although it is covering the entire €596 million cost of the project, the Foundation will eventually donate the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Culture Center (SNFCC), to the Greek state.
The SNFCC is being built by two of Italy’s leading architects and builders: Renzo Piano and Salini Impregilo. A Greek company, Terna, is also partner in the joint venture responsible for the project.
Quote:
Using the most advanced technique in erecting mechanical stabilized earth walls, the builders made the park slope south towards the sea, rising to a height of 32 metres to become the roof of the complex of buildings that will house the Greek National Opera and the National Library of Greece.
Running through the park is a network of footpaths paved with a natural mixture of crushed clay tiles.
Alongside the park is a canal, designed to reinforce the city’s link to the sea. The canal also acts as a basin to avoid flooding during heavy rainfall. It is 400 meters long, 30 meters wide and 1.5 meters deep.
A sea water abstraction system and a desalination plant provide water for the canal and the park’s irrigation system.

On top of the roof of the opera house, at the end of the park at 40 meters in height is a canopy that resembles a huge, suspended wing. This is the project’s landmark: a masterpiece of architecture, engineering and construction techniques.
Made by two ferrocement slabs that are each three centimetres thick, the canopy covers 10,000 square metres.
Weighing about 4,000 tons, it is supported by 30 slender steel columns. On top of these is a system of springs and dampers that enable the canopy to move under the effects of thermal dilatation, wind and tremors.
Between the canopy and the roof will be the so-called Lighthouse. Its glass walls will offer a 360-degree view of the sea and the city.

We know that construction of the entire complex will be completed sometime between March and June. Then as this is a private donation it will be accepted by the Greek state and the transition of the National Library and the National Opera into their new facilities will begin. The move will take approximately 8 months however we do not yet know what the state will choose to do with the park in the meantime. Will they open the park for the public or choose to wait so that the entire complex will open at the same time sometime around spring 2017.

The landscape is nice. But the architecture has nothing to do with Greece! Maybe nice on the inside. Disappointing. The nicest thing are trees and they are not manmade. The hill is a nice touch. I would have put a temple on top, mixed with old ornaments and art deco as well as Bauhaus. But not Bauhaus only like this. The concrete will not age well.
