The work of Dimitris Pikionis was a major influence on the formulation of
contemporary Greek architecture. From his pioneering modernist houses of the
1920s and early 1930s to his most outstanding achievement, the landscaping of
the Acropolis site in the 1950s, he consistently strove for an original and
relevant modern interpretation of the classical spirit and popular architecture
of his country.
This publication traces his significant contribution as an architect, artist
and teacher through a wide range of essays and a visual presentation of his
buildings and projects.
