Ε/MCR510 ESS Modern Greek Architecture, 19th – 20th centuries

Professor: Theodora MONIOUDI-GAVALA

The object of this course is to provide competent knowledge of Greek architecture from the establishment of the modern Hellenic state to the present.

The classicist style is examined as it took shape after the War of Independence and the advent of the monarchy. Buildings erected in 19th-century Athens are presented, as are those of other cities in free Greece. The architecture of the period is likewise seen in the regions that were not immediately integrated into the modern Hellenic state.

The changes that took place in the early 20th century are studied. Reference is made to urban planning in Greek cities during the 20th century. Thessaloniki is examined as a special case. The changes that followed the Asia Minor Disaster are pointed out, as is the introduction of modern architecture and the subsequent shift to traditional architecture.

The trends that followed World War II are also presented, with reference to the work of distinctive architects of the period (Dimitris Pikionis, Aris Konstantinidis). Developments are studied that are characteristic of contemporary Greek architecture and the work of living architects (Nicos Valsamakis and Alexandros Tombazis.)
