Astike kai laike katoikia sten hellenike paradosi

By C.E. Ecomomou

[Urban and Folk Houses in Greek Tradition] In greek. Soft cover, 29 cm, 368 pp., ill. H αστική και λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία στον ελληνικό χώρο έχει την αφετηρία της στην κλαδόπλεχτη κυκλική καλύβα, η οποία αποτέλεσε την πρώτη κατοικία του ανθρώπου, που μέχρι πριν μερικές δεκαετίες αναπτυσσόταν σε πεδιάδες και σε περιοχές με χαμηλό υψόμετρο. Συνέχεια αυτής, κατά τη γνώμη μας, αποτέλεσε η ορθογώνια στενομέτωπη και η πλατυμέτωπη κατοικία με μεγάλη ποικιλία τύπων και μορφών, των οποίων η διαδρομή καταγράφεται από την αρχαιότητα, την ελληνιστική και ρωμαϊκή εποχή έως την οθωμανική κατάκτηση. Ακολούθως, η έρευνα επικεντρώνεται στην αστική και λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία του 18ου και 19ου αιώνα, της οποίας σχετικά μεγάλος αριθμός παραδειγμάτων έχει διασωθεί. Παράλληλα, από το τέλος του πρώτου τρίτου του 19ου αιώνα, αναπτύσσεται στα μεγάλα αστικά κέντρα η νεοκλασική κατοικία, που συνυπάρχει με την αντίστοιχη παραδοσιακή για μερικές δεκαετίες και την επηρεάζει σε επιμέρους στοιχεία, χωρίς η πρώτη να αποτελεί αντικείμενο του παρόντος έργου. Στα αστικά κέντρα η παραδοσιακή κατοικία απαντάται σε ορισμένες συνοικίες, οι οποίες έχουν αναπλαστεί σχετικά πρόσφατα (το Βαρούσι στα Τρίκαλα, η Καργιώτισσα στη Βέροια, ο Ντούλτσος στην Καστοριά, η παλιά πόλη της Ξάνθης). Νοτιότερα, στην Πελοπόννησο, μεμονωμένοι Πύργοι ή ομάδες Πύργων (Μάνη) έχουν επίσης αποκατασταθεί. Στις αγροτικές περιοχές η λαϊκή παραδοσιακή κατοικία έχει αντικατασταθεί από «σύγχρονες κατοικίες» και μόνο σε μεμονωμένες περιπτώσεις ή σε απομακρυσμένους οικισμούς διασώζονται αυθεντικές μορφές που και αυτές τείνουν να εκλείψουν λόγω της εγκατάλειψής τους. Στο παρόν έργο οι αστικές κατοικίες διάφορων ελλαδικών περιοχών υποβάλλονται σε εκτενείς συγκριτικές παρατηρήσεις. ============================================================== IMPORTANT: The shipping cost estimated by the system covers books weighing up to 750 gr.; a surcharge depending on the actual weight and destination applies for heavier books.

Changing Landscapes - Mediterranean Areas Design

By Lois Papadopoulos, Spiros Papadopoulos, Vaso Trova (eds.)

In english. Soft cover, 23 cm, 176 pp. The Changing Landscapes/Mediterranean Sensitive Areas Design Project constitutes a framework within which different Schools of Architecture and/or Landscape Design had the unique opportunity to be engaged in an international, creative and more-than-contemporary dialogue, concerning critical Mediterranean areas. The Program has been a hub of interaction on issues dealing with the notion of landscape ‘sensitivity’ and vulnerability, in relation with ‘change’ and transformation -which in terms of value and quality, has been interpreted as a point of cultural reference. The 2011 Erasmus IP Edition has been hosted in Volos, Greece in June 2011, focusing on sites characterized by the prominent element of water, constituting landscapes of unique assets, nature or infrastructure. The sites selected for the projects include the south part of the city waterfront, a restored lake and its surrounding shores, a coastal industrial area adjacent to an abandoned quarry, the seasonal aspects of a river’s banks and the revival of an island.

Sideries tes Macedonias

By A. Varvogles (phot.)

Photographic album. Hard cover, 29 cm, 300 pp. Το λεύκωμα "Σιδεριές της Μακεδονίας" περιλαμβάνει πλούσιο φωτογραφικό υλικό από σιδεριές της Θεσσαλονίκης, της Χαλκιδικής, της Δράμας, της Έδεσσας, της Φλώρινας, της Καστοριάς και άλλων περιοχών της Μακεδονίας. Στα τέλη του περασμένου αιώνα, με την άνθηση της μεγαλοαστικής τάξης, φτιάχθηκαν στη Θεσσαλονίκη τα πιο αξιόλαγα κομμάτια που ανήκουν στα αρχοντικά των οδών Β. Γεωργίου και Β. Όλγας, μερικά απ' τα οποία φαίνεται ότι έχουν οριστικά διασωθεί. Εντύπωση προκαλεί η ποικιλία των σχεδίων. Με λίγες εξαιρέσεις δεν απαντούν δυο όμοιες κατασκευές, αν και βέβαια υπάρχουν πολυάριθμες παραλλαγές σ' ένα θέμα. Μεταπολεμικά παρατηρείται μια τέλεια έκλειψη στις σιδεροκατασκευές. Οι σιδεριές είναι ουσιαστικά μια ανάμνηση. // The shipping cost estimated by the system covers books weighing up to 750 gr; a surcharge depending on the actual weight and destination applies for heavier books.

Greek Architecture Now

By Karin Skousbøll

In english. Soft cover, 23 cm, 352 pp., ill.; weight 750 gr. // 2004 was the year once more modern Greece took up the challenge to host the famous Olympic Games. With great veneration for the ideas and ancient traditions of the games, a spectacular modern Olympic event was composed. The preparations contained comprehensive activities representing many fine new examples of Greek architecture. With the author’s Scandinavian viewpoint the aim of this book has been an investigation into contemporary Greek architecture and at the same time providing an understanding for its essential characteristics based on the historic, cultural heritage of Hellas. Despite its glorious past and Athens’ position as the oldest capital in Europe, in architectural terms the country is a mainly modern nation. Greece adapted modernism from the 1930s and refound with enthusiasm the modern style during the 1950s - 60s, but even so the national aspects and the presence of the classical/neo-classical icons repeatedly evoked an ideological battle between the «traditionalists» and the «modernists». The best architects - then as now - master to combine the current international trends with a signature Greek expression. The latest promising development in architecture since 1990 has generated many such examples, of which a selected number is presented in this book. Contemporary Greek architecture deserves a greater international attention. CONTENTS: Past and present of Greek architecture - Essentials at Greek architecture - Athens: Urban development, new perspectives - Attica and the sites of the Olympic games 2004 - Thessalonike: Urban development and actual perspectives // CASES: Athens - Attica - Northern Mainland - Middle Mainland - Southern Mainland - Islands: Cyclades and Crete // INDEX // Bibliography. // The shipping cost estimated by the system covers books weighing up to 750 gr; a surcharge depending on the actual weight and destination applies for heavier books.
