Athens - The brand new "Stavros Niarhos" Cultural Center
Thursday, 30 June 2016
The Stavros Niarhos Foundation Cultural Center enchants numerous visitors. The "heart" of the center is the amazing building complex, by the hand of architect Renzo Piano, where all the sophisticated concert halls and galleries are housed. The complex is surrounded by a garden which extends for hundreds of acres and includes outdoor concert halls and a water canal for sailboats. It is truly a monumental project which will be completed in 2016 and will be donated to the Greek state in 2017. (Editor's note: Τhis album includes photographs from the outdoors. An album with photos from the indoors will be created at a later date)

Wherever one stands, he or she can see wild mountains and running water. In the morning, visitors are awoken by sheep bells and the sound of axes splitting wood in half.
A photo album of the Buffer Zone. Ghost homes, barbed wire, outposts and fortification. It’s like time stood still since 1974 and not even a day has gone by.
Winter is harsh in the villages of Arcadian Mount Mainalon. The dense forests of firs sigh by the weight of the snow and the sceneries are alpic. These villages during almost all winter are covered by deep clouds.

The view from the temple is breathtaking. From hear, Theseus began his journey to Crete in order to kill the Minotaur. From hear also, his father, Aegeus, fell to his death from the cliffs thinking his son had been killed. In honor of the fallen king the sea was named the Aegean.
