From the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus to the National Library and the University of Athens, this volume examines both the aesthetic design and cultural/social functions of 61 noted architectural landmarks throughout the nation of Greece. Art historian Janina K. Darling discusses how each structure or project was designed and built, and provides a detailed yet accessible description of architectural elements. Darling's entries combine an architectural reading with the larger context of the region's cultural history. An introductory essay, glossary, geographic index and subject index add to this vastly interesting volume. The Architecture of Greece is the first release from Greenwood's "Reference Guide to National Arhcitecture" series.
