The present research relates to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), which is a project of the Renzo Piano Building Workshop Architects. SNFCC Complex contains the facilities of the National Library of Greece, the National Opera House and the Stavros Niarchos Park which occupies 210.000 m2. The distinguished Italian architect included in his design elements of the Greek landscape - the sea, the sun and the earth. The Complex is an achievement of design and construction, as it adds up an important landmark to the list of architectural attractions in the world.
More specifically, in the beginning, a research is being carried out in the area of Phaleron Bay and Kallithea, where the project was accomplished. A historical retrospection of what existed on the site of the Complex prior to its construction is carried out. Also a reference is made on how the area of SNFCC has been affected since its creation and beyond. Afterwards, the Hill of the Complex is being studied, examining how the idea of its existence was created, how it is joined as a new hill in the city of Athens and what is the experience of its ascent. The last part refers to Stavros Niarchos Park and is attempted to analyze the reasons and strategies that such a new park in the capital has so many visits from the citizens. It is being described, through the experience of the visit, the differences with other parks in Athens. Designed to attract visitors SNFCC highlights the benefits of public urban spaces for citizens.
