A multipronged case study on Athens as an exemplary city of the Mediterranean and the Global South

This interdisciplinary publication--operating at the intersection of architecture, photography, art and urbanism--presents the findings of a decade's research by the Greek architect Platon Issaias (born 1984) on Athens and the particulars of Greece's urban environments, launching a broader discussion of the complex politics of urban development in the Mediterranean and the Global South.
Partnering with French photographer Yiorgis Yerolymbos (born 1973), Issaias offers original and unique perspectives on the city of Athens, its architecture, recent history and contemporary life. Texts, architectural drawings and photographs form an atlas of Athens encompassing exemplary projects, atmospheres and everyday practices?beyond the effects of the economic crisis of the 2010s and the ongoing pandemic.
