We are extremely proud to announce that EPEXYL’s work is included in the new exciting book by the renowned architectural historian Victoria Newhouse, “Chaos and Culture: Renzo Piano Building Workshop and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center”.
A beacon of hope
In Chaos and Culture, Victoria Newhouse weaves a fascinating narrative of how a philanthropist and an extraordinary design team became convinced that architecture could serve as a beacon of hope amid Greece’s economic crisis and political upheaval. With meticulous methodology of primary research, interviews with designers, and historic context, Newhouse describes the decade-long process leading to the creation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), a project that became the symbol of recovery and survival. Nikolaos Anastasiou, Epexyl’s CEO, was interviewed by Victoria Newhouse, discussing the company’s collaboration with Renzo Piano and the specialized procedure of the woodworks’ construction for the National Library and the National Opera.
