- Καλλιμάρμαρο......the first modern Olympics stadium down to scale.
- In 2011 I was commissioned by Σ.Ε.Γ.Α.Σ. (Greek Gymnast Association Union) to make a 1:560 scale model of the Kalimarmaro stadium in Athens. It is now used to promote the Athens Classic Marathon at various athletics expo's around the world.From Wiki: The Panathinaiko or Panathenaic Stadium (Greek: Παναθηναϊκό στάδιο), also known as the Kallimarmaro (Καλλιμάρμαρο, i.e. the "beautifully marbled"), Is an athletic stadium in Athens that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. Reconstructed from the remains of the ancient Greek stadium, the Panathinaiko is the only major stadium in the world built entirely of white marble (from Mount Penteli) and one of the oldest stadiums in the world.
The stadium is still used for the classic Marathon (as seen in the picture above) and for other cultural and athletic events.
Project duration 14days.
