This month has seen the long-awaited unveiling of the completed ferrocement canopy that crowns the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens. The canopy, designed in collaboration with architects Renzo Piano Building Workshop, is 100m x 100m and will support solar panels providing power for the Opera House and National Library, beneath, which are scheduled to open in 2016.

Measurements undertaken with our Vibrate It app on site show that the structure is performing as predicted.
