Architecture of Greece
From the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus to the National Library and the Univerisity 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.
