The main buildings of the SNFCC: on the right is the Parking Building; on the left, the building of the NLG; in the middle, one can see the Agora; and in the background, the building of the GNO. September 24, 2013

Stavros Niarchos family deserve to be listed as one of the greatest patriots of Greece.
You are right that Niarchos should be commended for his philanthropy, but I don't think it's the biggest donation to culture ever.

If anything he should inspire other Greeks wealthy or not-so-wealthy to give something to their country, big or small. 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country' as another notable person from Niarchos' era once said.

An interesting background video to Niarchos and the foundation.


As far as the building is concerned, it looks interesting, no doubt world-class and state-of-the-art, but I can't say it's beautiful, monumental looking, iconoclastic or even partly original in design. In this respect, it does seem like a great opportunity lost. The park is much needed and very nice though.

Exactly...I think the roof is just too simple-creates an atmosphere like on a Fairground. Other than this its definitely not ugly. But as you said the complex could be more unique.

Yes, definitely not ugly and compared to the very low standards and poor appearance of buildings in Athens generally, this is indeed something much better and special, but certainly no monumental classical European theatre (such as in Milan, Paris, Budapest etc), Sydney Opera House or even Biblioteca Alexandrina masterpiece. Would be interesting to actually experience it in person. Perhaps opinions will change with that.

Indeed Athens as a whole doesnt have the nicest buildings but on the other hand she has a very good infrastructure and is sourrounded by the beautiful hellenic nature. Ofcourse you can find quality buildings too like the athens mall for example:

Looking classy. This will be an iconic building for sure!
But isn't it kinda wrong to spend that much money on a project like this, considering current financial situation?

You should read this thread. Then you would know that its not public money. It is money that would not be there to spend if it were not spent for this project.

Dear iği, as written before, this project, The National Library Of Greece, The Greek National Opera and The Stavros Niarchos Park is funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

Btw in the background of this photo:


www.tanea.gr

you can see the Faleron Bay. In the upcoming months (i want to believe) will start the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the bay. The project is big and it will cost 340 mil. euros.

Here are the renders:

No, although the planning (i am not sure if this is the correct word to describe it) has been done by the same architect (Renzo Piano) its a different project.

Not sure how familiar you are with Athens but this building will be HUGE. To say it does not look monumental is puzzling. I guess if you were expecting something kitsch or eccentric then of course you will feel let down - Athens does not do bombastic architecture.

On that note, comparing this to the 'low standard' and 'poor appearance' buildings of Athens is also quite odd as this building is a major cultural centre and not a run of the mill 4 story apartment block. Unless of course you are referring to other recent public buildings in Athens such as Tschumi's Acropolis Museum or Calatrava's OAKA Complex...

It will be funded by SNF but is considered a seperate project. The name of the area is Faliro Delta.
