New Acropolis Museum in Athens




The design by Bernard Tschumi was selected as the winning project in the second competition for the design of the New Acropolis Museum.
Tschumi's design revolves around three concepts: light, movement, and a tectonic and programmatic element, which together "turn the constraints of the site into an architectural opportunity, offering a simple and precise museum" with the mathematical and conceptual clarity of ancient Greek buildings.
The new Acropolis Museum is under construction at the southern base of the Acropolis, at the ancient road that led up to the "sacred rock" in classical times.
Set only 800 feet from the legendary Parthenon, the museum will be the most significant building ever erected so close to the ancient temple!
