The Onasis Cultural Centre

The Onasis Cultural Centre on Syngrou Avenue opened a year ago so it was a first for us

We went there to see the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition

I always wondered what the inside of the building would feel like given all those slats but the effect is quite nice and soothing, cocoon-like

The grand staircase

and a closer look

The building is five storey high. We were looking forward to having lunch at the rooftop restaurant with views of the Acropolis and Lykavetus but apparently it is not open yet

Is this really gold leaf,  I wonder - can it possibly be used on such a grand scale?

the bar

and another look at the impressive ceiling.
