SNFCC Members Off Premises: Towards the sea | A city walk exploring the neighborhood of SNFCC
Ever since it first opened its doors, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre became an attraction for thousands of visitors. It has been established as a popular destination for the Athenian crowds, with people from every part of the city assembling here on a daily basis.
Like every other landmark though, the SNFCC isn´t only defined by the space it occupies but also by its surroundings. It takes only a short stroll around the area delineating its premises to realise the strikingly fragmented landscape. From the refugee’s housing projects at Titzifies to the Flisvos Marina and the Faliro Bay redevelopment, a succession of discontinuities defines the extended neighbourhood.
Starting off at the SNFCC we will set to explore the individual and collective needs and aspirations, the trends and contingencies that shaped the multifaceted character of the area. We will seek the tensions and dynamics that triggered and continue to fuel the development of the urbanscape, enhancing the visibility of local communities, cultural movements and initiatives from the past and the present, to the future. Always gazing towards the sea.
