Art and Cultural Centre
A marvel of architecture on Syngrou Avenue in Athens, is hosting the multifaceted cultural events organised by the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, as well as other notable institutions promoting the letters of fine arts. The building has a surface area of 18000 m2. The winning design put forward for this building, provides for a building 89 feet tall, faced with white marble and glass, in a reference to the minimalism demonstrated by Ancient Greek architecture. The building is destined to be a model of contemporary architecture. By day the white horizontal strips of marble on the facade reflects the light of Attica. 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 surroundings of the large performance halls.
SurfaPore C was used to protect the strips of unpolished white marble that are used to provide this magnificent wave-like effect outside the building
