City park

At first glance, this just looks like a park on a slope. But this park is constructed on top of the building. All the plants and trees are planted here. Even the older olives have been transported and planted here. An impressive piece of gardening and architecture. The project of the SNFCC was intended primarily to restore the physical and perceptual connections between the land and the sea. On his first visit, architect Renzo Piano summed up the project with a topographic gesture: he decided to ideally elevate a strip of land so as to lay out a sloping park in which to set the building, so restoring the view of the sea and the acropolis.
