Modern Lines – The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a modern architectural treasure in Athens, Greece designed by Renzo Piano. It was built on an abandoned seafront property in the southern suburbs of Athens. Today the property has been transformed into a hilltop complex that includes an opera house, a new home for the National Library of Greece, and a 42-acre park.

    1. No green roof but it overlooks the sea on one side and a large park & the acropolis on the other side. The center has a large green space, a small artificial lake for kayaking, and cultural activities. And, the park has mosquitoes, as I found out the hard way!! 🙂
