Show synopsis This is an informative, illustrated survey of the New Acropolis Museum in Athens. Located in Athens' famous Makryianni district, the New Acropolis Museum stands less than 1,000 feet from the Parthenon - an enduring symbol of ancient Greece, and considered by many to symbolise the high point of Greek art - at the entrance to the network of walkways that link the key archaeological sites and monuments of the Acropolis, a location that was carefully chosen to enable a dialogue between the Museum's exhibition spaces and the Acropolis buildings. Featuring fantastic full-colour photographs, this volume shows how the unique design for the New Acropolis Museum captures the beauty and classical simplicity of the exhibits it house, whilst ensuring a museological and architectural experience that is relevant for both today and the foreseeable future.
