A new Cultural Center...

November 2010


A marvel of architecture in Athens, Greece will soon open its gates to host multifaceted cultural events organized by the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, as well as by other notable domestic and foreign institutions promoting the letters and fine arts.

The building, with a surface area of 18,000 sq m, is being constructed on a plot of private land measuring 3,000 sq m, and covers an entire block and is destined to be a model of contemporary architecture. Its simplicity of volume and plainness of form have a powerfully monumental character.

By day, the white horizontal strips of marble on the facades reflect the light of Attica, producing a wave-like impression. The opposite happens at night, when the white marble strips are illuminated in a different way and the inside of the building becomes visible, revealing the shell surrounding the large performance halls.

The goals of the Onassis Cultural Center are multifarious. Among them is to encourage the development of Modern Greek culture and its promotion outside of Greece, as well as providing Greek artists with a fully equipped cultural center where they can present their work.

The foundation will also give foreign journalists, critics, and cultural managers a chance to become acquainted with the work of Greek artists.
The building consists of:

  • A 900 seat amphitheatre, with a stage that can accommodate theatrical performances, a symphony orchestra, opera, dance, cinema, lectures and conferences
  • A 220 seat hall, suitable for smaller theatrical, musical or dance performances, lectures and special audio-visual shows (multimedia, virtual reality)
  • 700 sq m of exhibition space
  • An open air theatre
  • An electronic library
  • A professional recording studio
  • A restaurant (with an open-air section) for artistic events
  • An underground parking and storage space
