Description

Opened in 2018, Agemar has already come to represent the epitome of maritime architecture. The Angelicoussis Maritime Group had its new headquarters built in Athens near the coast; Agemar’s every facet pays clever and playful homage to the sea horizon. Even from afar, curving strips of white marble flow uninterruptedly like waves around the building. They set it in graceful motion, whose meaning is reinforced by the reflections of surrounding water surfaces. In the interior, the theme is transposed into a gripping piece of architecture that plays with light. Visitors are immersed in the atmosphere of an ethereal world shaped by natural light and shadows generated by a generous atrium and the flowing curves of the walls sculpted in white marble. No wonder that the architect Rena Sakellaridou and her building have been nominated for the European Union’s renowned Mies van der Rohe Prize. Through essays, sketches, drawings, commentary, and photographs, this monograph provides an intimate view of the creation of this unique building.
