NEW EXHIBITION AT THE SNF CULTURAL CENTER IN ATHENS

Renzo Piano Building Workshop: Piece by piece
Friday / April 28 / 2017, 06.00-00.00

https://www.snfcc.org/visitors-cente...-by-piece-284/
Quote:
"It is very difficult to successfully exhibit architecture. Nothing can really substitute actually being in the building itself, the feeling of the hybrid texture of a city, the continuous stream of voices that make up the sounds of life. An architectural exhibition can, however, clearly transmit something of the complex and shared process through which the buildings we design are conceived, constructed and then inhabited. … I like to think of this exhibition like a journey through space,” writes Renzo Piano about the exhibition Piece by Piece, part of which goes on display at the SNFCC for the first time in Greece.

The exhibition by the Fondazione Renzo Piano and the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, whose projects include the SNFCC complex, comprises 18 monographic installations that trace the making of various projects using mockups, drawings, photographs and videos. Two installations are dedicated to the visionary SNFCC construction project.
27/4–23/7

Monday–Sunday

06.00–00.00

Thansks for the pictures. It is very heartening to see that all sorts of people can use such grand buildings, not only book lovers or opera-goers! It means the building really "belongs" to the citizens of Athens (and elsewhere).

Conversation Renzo Piano - Michael Kimmelman


Quote:
Τhe renowned architect of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), Renzo Piano, returns to Athens for a comprehensive discussion with the New York Times architectural critic, Michael Kimmelman, at the Stavros Niarchos Hall.
A very interesting conversation took place last week at the SNF Cultural Center in Athens that was designed by Renzo Piano and completed last year. SNFCC has already become the new destination of the city with more than 1.300.000 million visitors between August 2016 and May 2017. From October of 2017 the National Opera of Greece inaugurates the new artistic season at the incredible premises that Renzo Piano created. If you are visiting Athens do not miss this beautiful gem that also includes a Mediterranean park, a sea water canal, the National Library of Greece, a restaurant, cafes, sport facilities, sailing activities and many more.
The impressive building that recently completed at the coast of Athens has also become the emblem of the new website of RPBW.
http://www.rpbw.com/ Renzo Piano was recently commissioned by the SN Foundation to design the in situ museum that will protect and preserve the ancient cemetery that was discovered during the construction of the SNF Cultural Center, one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the recent years in Athens. This new project will be entirely founded by the Niarchos Foundation in the same frame that the SNFCC was constructed nd delivered to the Greek State.

Chaos and Culture
Renzo Piano Building Workshop and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens
Written by Victoria Newhouse

http://www.monacellipress.com/book/?isbn=9781580934886


preview:

http://insight.randomhouse.com/widge...610&height=700
Quote:
In 2006 the Stavros Niarchos Foundation announced its gift of a new cultural center in Athens to house both Greek National Library and the Greek National Opera House within a forty-acre landscaped public park. Two years later, with designers and engineers in place and the project underway, the Greek economy collapsed.

In Chaos and Culture, Victoria Newhouse weaves a fascinating narrative of how a philanthropist and an extraordinary design team became convinced that architecture could serve as a beacon of hope amid Greece’s economic crisis and political upheaval. With meticulous methodology of primary research, interviews with designers, and historic context, Newhouse describes the decade-long process leading to the creation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), an $800 million dollar project that became the symbol of recovery and survival.
