they are nice. too bad they are not located in the best part of the city centre...quite a few have been restored however and hopefully that part of the centre, the old athenian neighbourhoods, will soon be revived...only solution is that young residents and families move into such parts instead of preferring the rich and posh areas of the north and the south of the city

Ovem the first six buildings and the last one that is part of the polytechnic aren´t actually of art deco architectural style. They are rather works of architectural "rationalism". The three at the end, before the last one, I think that are examples of variants of greek neo-classicism

The building of your school (Sholes Delta) and the one before that, are art deco (not in its pure form however). The one with the greek flag is neo-classical. The remaining are examples of architectural rationalism.

none of them is pure art deco! fortunately Athens has almost its own architecture style! The only pure & original art deco building i can think now is the Rex Theater in Panepistimiou street
