The goal of this assignment is to achieve an architectural ensemble that respects this unique environment while contributing to create a new architectural icon for a European capital that, while proud of its past, still wants to show the rest of the world it can be a modern city too.
There have been many great architects that have been fascinated by this place through decades, traveling sometimes for months to visit it. This project is presented as an exciting challenge that blends history, philosophy, mathematics, geometry, modernity... and with which we are sure participants will enjoy their time.
For this project we have an exceptional 15.000m2 field located in the heart of Athens, just a few meters from the Temple of Zeus and the Panathinaiko stadium. It has excellent views of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, and it can also be observed from these.
The ArchMedium's team proposes, trough this new competition, the creation of an Olympic museum in Athens, dedicated to protect and remember all those historical moments that the games have left us.
The site is in a very particular area of the city, surrounded by representative work of the ancient Greek culture such as the Acropolis. Currently the place is occupied by a running track that will be moved to another sector of the city leaving a perfect flat land with excellent characteristics.
The project, as a whole, aims to be a new icon of the city that engages the classic works, the new equipments and the complex structure of the city.
Participants are requested to fulfil the requirements of the program taking into account its specific function and its insertion in a precise and characteristic urban environment.
