Housing Justice in Athens 1834-2014

City - Politics - Architecture

Amalia Kotsaki


The dignified housing of Justice in Athens, the Greek capital, has

been an ardent desire of governments, lawyers and citizens since the foundation

of the Greek State until today. The Hall of Justice of Athens, a truly prestigious

public building, in its long and adventurous history, has often been a meeting

point for political ambitions and architectural visions. Leading figures of the

political scene in Greece march together with some of the most distinguished

Greek architects allowing the possibility to canvass the relationship between the

city, its politics and its architecture in the chariot of the Hall of Justice of Athens.
