  1. Dear,
    We are a group of students of the University of Pisa; we are attending the second year of Structural Engineering – Architecture. We would like to receive some information and materials about your project of the “New Acropolis Museum” in Athens.
    We have to model a new 3D project, so we would need you to send us the more you think could be useful.

    Thank for your time,
    Kindly regards.
