new acropolis museum

the new acropolis museum designed by bernard tschumi architects opened at the end of last month in
athens, greece. the new museum was specifically designed to house the unique collection of archeological
remains and boasts over 150,000 square feet of exhibition space. tschumi deliberately created a non
monumental building, allowing the importance of the artifacts within to be the feature. the final design
evokes the classical clarity of ancient greek architecture, updated for the context of today. the project began
in 2001 when tschumi was selected in a design competition. during pre-construction, it was discovered that
the museum’s site contained remains from ancient athens, which were then integrated into the building
design. the final structure has three layers, the base, middle and top. the base hovers over the remains while
the middle houses the main exhibition space. the top houses the parthenon gallery and is rotated 23 degrees
from the rest of the building, aligning directly with the parthenon.
