The Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis presented the new design for the National Archaeological Museum in Athens on Wednesday.
According to Ekathimerini, the new blueprint includes a subterranean extension beneath the grounds in front of Ludwig Lange and Ernst Ziller’s historic building.
It also focuses on upgrades to the main building and landscaping of the museum.
The new design for the renovation and expansion was chosen by an international committee from 10 different proposals.
Mitsotakis said the new plans for the museum will create a landmark for the capital and “more space to show the magnificent exhibits of one of the greatest collections globally.”
