Photographer's Note

The Academy of Athens is lauded around the world as a marvelous example of neoclassical architecture or architecture that draws on themes and aesthetics from antiquity, as filtered through a nineteenth-century eye.

Located in the center of the city and modeled after an ancient Greek temple, the building serves as a link between Athens ancient past and fast-paced present.
The beautiful structure also houses the nation抯 most senior research institution.

When walking along the central Panepistimiou street, visitors are met with a splash of ancient Greek aesthetics amidst the bustle of the modern city when they spot the Academy.

Breathtaking columns reaching up to the city抯 famed blue sky, an intricately-carved sculptural pediment, and ancient Greek statuary lining the building instantly transport the viewer back into the past.
