Looks very cool. Never wrong to spend money for wisdom.

Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center
Milan, June 22, 2016


PRESS NOTE
http://www.salini-impregilo.com/en/p...al-center.html


Quote:
Greece returns to the international scene to reclaim its leading role in arts and culture. It is a role that will be celebrated tomorrow, June 23, with the public opening of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens, one of the biggest structures in Europe dedicated to the performing arts, designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop (RPBW) and entirely financed by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation with an investment of €596 million.

The Salini Impregilo Group, head of a joint-venture with Greece’s Terna, built the project, transforming the vision of the star architect into a center unique in the world, dominating the Kallithea neighbourhood by the sea where the ancient port of Phalerum was once located.

“For us, the Cultural Center represents a dream come true, the chance to build a visionary project by Renzo Piano that many had deemed impossible to do, bringing engineering and art together to realize a project for current and future generations. It is a project that would have fascinated an artist or scientist like Leonardo da Vinci, who would have accepted the challenge to make a roof “fly” like the Canopy, making it dance to the rhythm of the Greek wind in a setting of incredible beauty with the Acropolis and the Parthenon in the background,” says Pietro Salini, chief executive of Salini Impregilo. “It is an occasion to celebrate not only the realization of a visionary project, of which we are proud to have been a part, but also of the success in urban renewal based on the idea that public works can lead to social and economic development. We have made other buildings that have become icons for their host countries, such as the Kingdom Centre in Riyadh, the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, which was also designed by Renzo Piano. When we delivered those works we felt just like we do today: proud to have completed a long journey, from the vision of a world-famous architect to technical rigour of realizing it, challenging the laws of nature.”

The Cultural Center

On the 232,000 square metres occupied by the SNFCC rises the buildings that house the Greek National Opera (33,000 square metres and 1,400 seats) and the National Library of Greece (24,000 square metres with nearly two million books), as well as a park, landscaped on an artificial hill covering 170,000 square metres.

The Library is equipped with Internet and computer stations, while the walls hold books on shelves made of certified wood from a forest in the United States.

Canopy

The Canopy, the roof hovering over the buildings with a surface of 10,000 square metres and 4,400 tonnes in weight, is the real engineering masterpiece of the project. To build it, Salini Impregilo followed the specifications made by Renzo Piano, who designed it as a sort of shell that could oscillate in the wind and amid thermal forces. It is a huge surface that resembles a football pitch, created with 720 panels of ferroconcrete, each 7 metres by 3.5 metres in size. Every panel has a particular curvature that makes it unique and requires it to be placed in a specific spot to form the Canopy.

The upper part of the Canopy is covered by solar panels that enable the Centre to be energy self-sufficient.

The Park

The Park’s 170,000 square metres create a green oasis in the city, a lung where an old hippodrome once existed but has since been returned to the Mediterranean nature. In order to choose the 1,500 trees and 200,000 bushes and shrubs, 70 experts made 80 trips throughout Europe, choosing plants one by one. The sycamores are from the Netherlands, the pines and shrubs from Italy and the olive trees from Greece, among many other species of plants.

The Park, designed by New York landscape expert Deborah Nevins, gradually rises up an artificial hill leading to the foot of the Canopy that covers the Opera and the Library.

Sustainability

The Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center is an example of engineering excellence at the service of art, built by Salini Impregilo in full respect of a strict criteria of environmental sustainability.

From the choice of the wood to the hiring of suppliers based on the sustainability of their production processes, every detail was scrutinized. This rigorous respect for these principles saw the Centre receive a “Platinum” certification, the highest rating earned from LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, among the most prestigious in the construction sector).

The park is open for four days of events and finally you can visit both the library and the opera house. It is so nice after all these years to see the buildings full of people


















Renzo Piano himself was there today presenting the project to the people
