In an interview with the Greek newspaper “Kathimerini”, landscape architect, Helli Pangalou, talked about the design of the Stavros Niarchos Park and its unique biodiversity, her collaboration with Renzo Piano during the creation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC), as well as about the Park’s recent distinction at the European Garden Awards 2018/2019.

In her interview, Ms. Pangalou highlighted that time is crucial for the evolution of the landscape and the constant human presence on the SNFCC’s premises determines the Park’s evolution and dynamics. In addition, Ms. Pangalou noted that the Stavros Niarchos Park was created to be enjoyed by Athens and its residents for decades to come.
