Twelve Greek Architects of the Interwar Period
 Eleni Fessa-Emmanouil
Emmanouil Marmaras

Translated by Judy Giannakopoulou
376pp.
Topio, 2005
ISBN: 960-7646-74-6

Arguing that the reputation of many architects who were active in Greece between the wars has been overshadowed by those who came before and after them, Eleni Fessa-Emmanouil and Emmanouil V. Marmaras redress the balance. In Twelve Greek Architects of the Interwar Period they choose twelve such architects whose work and influence is important yet have received relatively little recognition to showcase both the practitioners themselves and significant achievements in modern Greek architecture.
An introduction sets the social, political and historical context of Europe and Greece at the time and outlines the artistic currents – modernism, neo-classicism, eclecticism, art deco, art nouveau as well as the local vernacular – that influenced Greek architecture from 1920 to 1940. Meticulously researched and documented, and abundantly illustrated with photographs of the architects and their work, this bilingual Greek-English volume with an excellent translation by Judy Giannakopoulou is both a welcome addition to the record and readily accessible to the general reader.
