The international New York-based architect Jean Pierre Heim on Monday had a meeting with Culture Minister Aristidis Baltas, the minister’s aides and the head of the Greek travel and tourism agency federation FEDHATTA Lysandros Tsilidis, during which Heim presented his vision for a new archaeological museum on the island of Delos.
Heim, who also has offices on the Greek island of Mykonos, Paris and now Shanghai, put forward a ground-breaking plan for a modern museum that is fully harmonised with the surrounding environment and comes equipped with the latest in modern methods to protect and secure the existing exhibits and any new ones that may be found on the island.
Baltas thanked Heim but pointed out that Delos is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site, which imposes certain constraints, while it is under the supervision of the Cyclades Archaeological Ephorate, to which proposals concerning Delos must be submitted for evaluation.
