Austrian company puts the crown on the Megaron in Athens

The theatre Megaro Mousikis in Athens is another prestige project in the long reference list of the Austrian company Waagner-Biro. The company puts the crown on the concert hall with an innovative roof construction.

Waagner-Biro is a global leader in the fields of steel and glass engineering, stage engineering and bridge construction. When it comes to glass engineering, the company ranges between daring architectural visions, impressive contemporary architecture and internationally renowned landmarks. The Austrian company focuses on planning, development and execution of custom-made, innovative solutions for complex requirements. With almost 160 years of experience, Waagner-Biro could already win several architecture and steel construction prizes.

The Megaro Mousikis theatre is the concert hall of the non-profit organization “Society of the Friends of Music” on Vasilissis-Sofias-Avenue in Athens. The spectrum of activities in the Megaron extends far beyond music. In the Megaron Plus many exhibitions take place, for example about design and architecture. In the Olympic year of 2004, a conference center was added to the wide range of activities. Thus, the building represents one of the most important cultural centers of the city.

Other milestones for Waagner-Biro in the area of glass engineering were the roofing of the „Hangar 7“ in Salzburg, the construction of the glass dome of the Reichstag building in Berlin or the roofing of the Dubai Festival Center in the UAE.
