The building's strong clean lines and geometric shapes, a rectangluar top floor sitting on a trapezoidal lower floor, are a 21st century interpretation of the classical proportions of Ancient Greece. Everything is reduced to simplicity, both in materials and color palette, glass, concrete, marble, to allow attention to be focused on the museum's contents.
