ATHENIAN HOUSES OF THE MODERN MOVEMENT
The documented buildings presented in this publication are representative examples of the recent architectural heritage of the capital city. They were built in the 1930s and still survive scattered in the city centre and its neighbourhoods. Besides offering a wealth of information through photographs and texts, this book can also function as a visitor’s guide to the most typical examples of Modernism in Athens. The presentation of the material follows the documentation itinerary across the seven Municipal Districts of the city, based on the alphabetical order of the streets. The documented buildings are indicated in District maps and presented in summary tables. Representative photos of selected buildings, overall views and architectural details follow.
A photographic exhibition of the material was hosted at the Benaki Museum, Pireos Building 15 – 30 June 2013.
