New Acropolis Museum / Bernard Tschumi Architects

Acropolis Museum, Athens, Greece

Monaco has (2.5 mi) of Mediterranean frontage two harbors, the Port d'Hercule (Port de Monaco) at Monte Carlo and the Port de Fontvieille. In 2005, Monaco began a harbor expansion project at the Port d'Hercule requiring removal of the old breakwaters and their lighthouses. The government declined to consider any suggestions that the lighthouses be relocated or preserved, regarding them as obsolete. For lighthouse fans, this was a heartbreaking loss.
