Athens Suburbs and Countryside in the 1930s
 Dimitris Philippides
Photographer: Yiorgis Yerolymbos

208pp.
Olkos, 2006
ISBN: 960-8154-51-0
ISBN13: 978-960-8154-51-3

In the 1930s, as Athens expanded and Athenians looked beyond the city for holiday houses and primary residences, modernism was a powerful influence on domestic architecture. Though many of the houses built in the 1930s have since disappeared or been subjected to aesthetically dubious alterations, enough have survived to illustrate this fascinating account. Dimitris Philippides is an architect who has made a speciality of writing about architecture, and this handsome volume exemplifies his talent for making a serious study accessible to the general reader as well as the expert. While identifying, recording and evaluating 1930s houses in the suburbs and countryside around Athens, he also explains the social and historical context of this neglected aspect of the city’s rich architectural history. Maps, old aerial shots and excellent contemporary colour photographs by Marina Luz and Yiorgis Yerolymbos are an integral part of this bilingual Greek-English edition, translated into English by Judy Giannakopoulou.
