Giorgoos, I hope you don't mind me posting some of my photos from the Hellenic Agora that I shot in central areas, some inside but also some outside the historical centre; I was prompted my ReiAyanami's comments, and I believe that he is right in that there is much more to be seen in Athens that what people from abroad normally see in a short visit.

This 30's building very much reminds me of a design by Hans Scharoun:

Hey AAL thanks so much for posting You are more than welcome to post here! Please post more whenever you canThis forum is for all of us to post fotos of our own of central Athens, I donīt consider it to be mine.
So far only Ovem and Christos_greece have been following closely the thread and I thank them both for this!
Itīs nice too see that more people are interested in this thread.
Is this building in Vasilissis Amalias Avenue?

Μy pleasure! Yes, it is in Vassilissis Amalias. Amazing apartment building, used as UN offices for many years...I have the impression most of it is empty now, I only see lights in the ground floor. Buildings like that should be rennovated and resold for what they are: apartments. There is market even for expensive lofts made out of converted factories on dusty and noisy Peireos street, I cannot imagine that a building with this architecture, across the street from the National Gardens on one of Athens' most beautiful boulevards wouldn't find buyers for its apartments, no matter how high the cost!

Yes it is empty, at least in August when I passed from there...and thatīs a pitty! Itīs an amazing building, located in an extremely attractive location. Yup, it should be great if such buildings were converted back into appartments. I would love to live there
