Home > Winners > #129529


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
National Gallery Athens

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Museum

INSPIRATION:
The design of a permanent and alternating exhibition of the Greek art of 19-20th c., with material and geometric spatial indexes for the gaze that give the sense of free choice to the movement of the visitors (panels facing the incoming visitor permitting the maximum depth of the field of view), in a continuous open-air feeling due to the general indirect lighting that follows the incoming view of the excerpts of the city. Minimalism and materials that are subdued to highlight the works of art.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Interior design, museography of the accessible spaces of the visitors: Permanent exhibition areas, with large exhibition panels and suspended ceilings function as lighting mechanisms. Areas for alternating exhibitions, with suspended ceilings to support panels, lighting, projectors. Entrance area and circulation junctions covered with wooden panels for orientation and division of space. Excerpts from the city are visible in a two-way relationship between the work of art and the city.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The visitor can have information general or specific for the art works in each exhibition room, or for the projects of the museum, or for the orientation in the building by 60 interactive screens placed in the entrance and the circulation knots.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The study of the project started in 2017 and finished in 2020 in Athens. The construction started in 2020 and finished in 2021.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The materials in the exhibition and entrance areas are mainly metallic frames covered with panels of gypsum or wood, for the walls, or with Stretched Ceiling translucent diffusor films. The materials are subdued to highlight the works of art: wood without strong veins, matte marble on the floor, grey coloured exhibition walls.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Total area accessible of the visitors 8.500 sm, distributed over 6 floors.

TAGS:
museography, interior space, gaze, minimalism

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our team has a long experience of over 50 similar studies and constructions, on art exhibitions. In the specific project, we combined the given structure of the building with the museology study of the National Gallery and with the free flow of the visitor of the exhibition, checking the results through the navigation in detailed 3d maquettes.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest part was the coordination of the large number of the constructors and engineers of the building and the museography, of the supervisors of the Ministry of Culture (as we are talking about the National Gallery), of the curators and conservators of the Gallery, of the consultants of the sponsors.

NAME:
National Gallery of Greece

PROFILE:
The National Gallery Athens, Greece, is an art museum, devoted to Greek and European art from the 14th century to the 20th century. It is also known as the Alexandros Soutsos Museum, after the gallery’s most prominent benefactor. It stands out particularly for its nineteenth and twentieth century Greek painting and sculpture collection. When it was first established in 1878, the art gallery had a collection of 117 paintings exhibited at the Athens University. In 1896, Alexandros Soutsos bequeathed his collection and estate to the Greek Government aspiring to the creation of an art museum. The museum opened in 1900 which grew year after years thanks to private donations. After World War II the works began for a new Modern Movement building. After relocating the sculptures in the new National Glyptothek, the main building has renovated, and a new wing has added. The newly renovated building reopened after an 8-year refurbishment, on 24 March 2021, a day before the 200th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence. Nowadays, it displays approximately 20,000 works of art by Greek and European artists. It is directed by prof. Marina Lambraki-Plaka. Approximately four million people have visited the National Gallery in the last fourteen years. Its exhibition activity is mainly supported by sponsorships that cover up to half of its budget. The National Gallery has opened the last years branches in Nafplion, Sparta and Corfu.
