Back to the future..

Hi everyone!

Usually this time of year I get a nostalgic feeling, a desire to walk by the sea. I’ve already posted here some photos from my favorite walk in my hometown!

Before leaving Athens back in January, I visited the construction site of the new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center designed by Renzo Piano! The project site is located 4.5 km south of the center of Athens, on the edge of Faliro Bay, and the SNFCC is designed as a multifunctional arts, education and entertainment complex which will house the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera. It’s been less than a year that the construction began and scheduled to be completed in 2015.

I really look forward to the realization of this project, when it will become the  finale for my favorite walk!
