Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC)
Designed by architectural firm Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a sustainable world-class cultural, learning and recreational urban complex that includes the new homes of the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera, located within the Stavros Niarchos Park, one of the largest green spaces of Athens, covering an area of 210.000 square meters.
It was constructed through a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and was donated to the Greek State in February 2017.
