PLANETARIUM

The Planetarium as a synthetic training device, one of the most enjoyable and effective ever devised, quickly became an excellent way for millions of people to learn things they believed were beyond their learning abilities, for older generations to share their knowledge with younger ones and for experts to come into contact with the layman.

That is because the planetarium has an amazing capacity that enables both scientists and those with just a basic education to enjoy exactly the same show and share the sensation of the overall general development in events and the relation between cause and effect.

STAVROS NIARCHOS FOUNDATION CULTURAL CENTER

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a project that includes the new facilities for the National Library of Greece (NLG) and the Greek National Opera (GNO), as well as the 210,000 m² Stavros Niarchos Park.

"The idea to make the Cultural Center [a place] of civic life came together with the idea to make a big park rather than 'eat up' the park space to make buildingsso, the park came first and then the buildings were created which are actually protected by the park. Everything comes together,"
Renzo Piano @Yatzer
