The Koile is a natural concave rocky receptor which is the “non-building” itself, the "container" which could become the New Acropolis Museum and host its exhibits with suitable modifications on the natutal terrain. The architectural intervention is minimized to a transparent concrete shed resting on a trict and sparse support grid located in places that do not interfere with the fine sculptural arrangement of the slopes and the rocky bed of Koile and its archaelogical findings. The hollows, depressions, ridges and folds of the eroded rocky terrain define almost in themselves the particular "locations" of a promenade in a covered archaeological park which is itself an exhibit. Stonewalls or light coverings-awnings create correspondingly the different and necessary small scale areas for each type and group of scultpures within the overall space of the Museum. The constructed shed and the "nudity" of the natural terrain consititute the architectural idea of the Museum that is proposed as a "non-building".

Within the framework of general maintenance of the Halyvourgiki steel mill, the painting and antirust protection of the metal parts of the complex was carried out. The new colour scheme constitutes a major aesthetic intervention visible from a distance in the suburban area of the National Road of Athens and Corinth.

The proposal includes the church as a (functional) reference point in a small-scale intervention, created as a micro-locus within the vast campus landscape. The short artificial mound is characteristic of the micro-landscape, which, along with the church, are prominent in the design. The church is effectively incorporated into a cavity on the terrain relief, and its place is protectively enclosed by the environment. All elements combine a succession of lines and marks along a promenade. The visitor engages in a reclusive wandering that gradually allows for an intimate awareness of space and its deeper symbolic meaning.
