  • Description

    This fascinating volume offers an original contribution to the study of Aegean architecture in the Greek Islands through the ages, from prehistory to the present. It brings together eleven original essays by noted scholars, and is richly illustrated with 320 original photographs. The four introductory chapters provide a comprehensive approach to the history of the Aegean as a single entity.

    The other chapters, examining one group of islands each (North Aegean & Sporades, East Aegean, Argosa-ronic Islands, Cyclades, Dodecanese, and Crete) offer the reader a fresh perspective by assigning equal significance to each historical period. Aiming to document the architecture as a whole of these regions, the book incorporates, as an essential element, outstanding examples from the work of modern-day architects.
