A complete overview of one of the most ambitious urban projects by Italian architect Renzo Piano; a unique volume for all who are interested in architecture and urban landscape.

This volume is a close analysis of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, the revolutionary $600 million project designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano and donated by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation to the city of Athens for the construction of the National Library, Opera House, and a public park set in grounds covering 170,000 square meters.
