The Acropolis is the symbol of Athens, an imposing rock spur used in archaic times as a defensive bastion. In the 7th century its militaristic area became the place to celebrate the gods: the construction of the Parthenon, the Propilei, the Eretteo and the Temple of Nike Athena are worth the UNESCO heritage site. The agora, on the other hand, represented the commercial and political hub of the city where all the most important Greek philosophers were. The millenary history of Athens has not stopped renewing itself over the centuries; the streets of the ancient city are often scenarios of political-administrative conflicts. In this atmosphere filled with meanings we want to imagine an architecture capable of translating instances of the past into new contemporaneity. “The Terrace of Acropolis” will rise shortly from the ancient temples to offer a privileged point of view on the archaeological area. It will become a functional meeting point where auditorium, dining areas and exhibition spaces will become spaces for interaction for exhibitions and events. “The Terrace of Acropolis” will be a new heart for Athens.
