Description - Greece by Alexander Tzonis
The picture that usually comes to mind when we think of Greek architecture is one of classical temples and ancient sites. This book takes a look at the Greece of reality rather than of the imagination - the buildings constructed since the establishment of the modern Greek state. Greece: Modern Architectures in History provides a new understanding of modern Greek history and its architecture, introducing buildings, architects, and the ideas that shaped them, from the mid-nineteenth-century neoclassical buildings for the new state to contemporary minimalist architectural works and projects of recent urban regeneration.
