In June 2011, Renzo Piano visited Athens for the second time in order to present the final architectural designs for the SNFCC. The presentation was made during a large celebration, which took place on the site which would one day host the Stavros Niarchos Park. The event, which was open to the public, was attended by a total of 3,500 people. In addition to Renzo Piano’s presentation, the public had the opportunity to visit specially designed exhibition spaces, with detailed information on the architect’s plans as well as the pillars of the SNFCC, the National Library of Greece, the Greek National Opera and the Stavros Niarchos Park.
