The Hellenic American Union and the Hellenic American College, in cooperation with Melissa Publishing House, are proud to present two new publications about two of the most influential Greek architects, who envisioned a better Athens.

The work of a "prophet" as to the current situation in Athens is presented in the book "Kostas E. Biris: Reports on Athens", through an account of his long track record as an architect and urban planner at the Athens Municipality (1925-1965), his groundbreaking suggestions and, above all, his spirited articles in the Press. The book "The Story of Constantinos Doxiadis, 1913-1975: Report to Hippodamus" aims to recreate that era while focusing on the man and his work, one of the very few modern Greek designers enjoying immense worldwide recognition.

The publications will be presented by:
1st Panel: Konstantinos Dekavalas (Architect, Honorary Professor at NTUA), Dionysios Zivas (Architect, Honorary Professor at NTUA), Alexandros Papageorgiou-Venetas (Architect-Urban Planner, Professor at the University of Louvain), Georgios Sarigiannis (Architect, Honorary Professor at NTUA) and Eleftherios Skiadas (President of the Society of Athenians)
2nd Panel: Tilemachos Andrianopoulos (Architect), Apostolos Doxiadis (Author), Mantha Zarmakoupi (Architect-Archaeologist), Savvas Kontaratos (Architect, Honorary Professor at NTUA) and Panagiota Pavlidou (Librarian).
The panel discussions will be moderated by: Nikos Vatopoulos (Journalist).
