The 330-page album book features 200 selected buildings of Athens,
from 1821 to 2021. The presentation of each building is one-page long
and includes a photograph, essential information and a brief description
of the building.

The volume celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821
and it aims to showcase the richy varied buildings of the capital city
of the Modern Greek state. The 200 buildings we, all of which are still standing,
were selected for their architectural value.

The book is organized chronologically so that the reader can locate each building
in its historical context. Beginning with the first period of Athenian Classicism,
the presentation continues with examples of Late Classicism and on the early
20th century. In the Interwar period the modern movement began to take over
architecture. Two post-war periods follow, the second one lasting to this day.
