J.T. Magen renovates and expands Onassis Cultural Center in New York’s Olympic Tower

Midtown Hellenic exhibition and performance facility features a striking glass stairway and an airy stone-clad atrium with a waterfall feature.

The design for the Onassis Cultural Center enhances its presence within the atrium, itself transformed, and increases awareness of this cultural amenity, and its exhibits and events.
