2016 Hadrian Award Presented to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation

On October 24, 2016, WMF presented the Stavros Niarchos Foundation with the Hadrian Award for an extraordinary philanthropic legacy begun by its founder, the late Stavros S. Niarchos.

The work of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation includes the restoration and conservation of many of Greece’s ancient and iconic structures, the protection of newer landmark buildings, and the maintenance of religious sanctuaries around the world.

In 2016, the Foundation celebrates its 20th Anniversary with the completion of the magnificent Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, in Athens, designed by Renzo Piano.
