100 Years of Greek Tourism Architecture on Display at the Acropolis Museum

Andrea Avezzu 03Greek tourism’s architecture of the last 100 years will go on display next month at the Acropolis Museum in Athens.

Andrea Avezzu 04Last year, from June to November, visitors to the 14th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia in Italy were introduced to Greece’s architectural heritage through the “Tourism Landscapes: Remaking Greece” participation.

As of March 27, Greece’s participation in the Venice Biennale Exhibition will be exhibited in Athens at the Acropolis Museum.

“Tourism Landscapes: Remaking Greece” explores the role of tourism as a vehicle of modernization through the development of constructed tourism landscapes: hotels and resorts, organized beaches, archaeological sites and museums, public space designs and infrastructure facilities.

The review of Greek tourism’s history of architecture — from 1914, when the Greek National Tourism Organization was first launched, until 2014 — is presented as a prerequisite for Greece’s further development in the tourism industry.

Andrea Avezzu 01The exhibition consists of two sections: The archival section, which will present the architectural production of tourism landscapes in Greece in the last 100 years (1914-2014) and the new projects section that will showcase the proposals of 15 Greek and foreign architects for the future direction of the country’s tourism’s architecture in the post-crisis era.

The “Tourism Landscapes: Remaking Greece” exhibition will be curated by National Commissioner architect and professor Yannis Aesopos and will be on display until April 11.

A series of events will be held during the exhibition under the organization of OMNI APICO.
