“Athens 200 years 200 buildings” – EPIKYKLOS supports the exhibition as a creative partner
9-12 December – Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre
EPIKYKLOS supports the exhibition entitled “Athens 200 Years 200 Buildings” as a creative partner. The exhibition is taking place at the Tower of Books of the National Library of Greece, at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre, from Thursday 09 to Sunday 12 December 2021.
The exhibition is based on the architectural publication with the same title by architect Manolis Anastasakis and presents the 200 buildings from the book, which are situated in Athens and its wider region. They are emblematic buildings that we come across in our daily lives in the city, the history and evolution through time of many of them we mostly ignore.
The presentation of the 200 buildings is organised in five time periods, based on the chronology of the publication. In addition, each period has a more detailed overview, presenting on 10 screens the architectural production in Greece through its historical, social and cultural context. The audio background of the exhibition is a timelapse of Athens’ musical history of the past 200 years.
