The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, Athens, is now complete! The structural and civil engineering design of this project – world class new homes for the Greek National Opera and National Library – has been a labour of love for us over the past 8 years. We are very proud to see it now opening to the public with 4 days of celebrations.
This project embraces state-of-the-art structural engineering in many different ways, including exposed long span structures, unconventional materials, major retaining walls, liquefiable soils, seismic isolation as well as instrumentation and structural monitoring… creating a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable cultural centre for the people of Greece.
