Planning Principles
 Greek Mythology and History
 Life and Forces of a Structure
 Democracy or People Power
 Adhering to Terrain
“I cannot imagine the Greeks allowing themselves to be town-planned.”
-Owens, 1991
Kolonos: Previously
occupied by the Temple of
Theseus—credited with
unification of Attica.
Areopagus: Ares was tried
here by Gods for murder of
Posiedon’s son. Later used
as a criminal court.
Pnyx: Assembly of ecclesia
(the people) after Solon’s
and Cleisthene’s policies.
Acropolis: Shrine for
Athena, patron Goddess of
Athens.
Agora: Originated as an
open space for civic
activities.

Myth and History
Streets
Narrow and winding roads, on
steeper ground reduced to
stairs.
Inconstant road width.
‘Athens was a city of
contrasts. The fine temples
and public buildings of the
Classical and Hellenistic
periods were fitted into an
Urban plan which had
developed over several
centuries and was continuing
to do so.’ (Owens, 1991)
Important road: The
Panathenaic Way
Image Source: Powell, A and Sheehan, S 2003, Ancient Greece, Facts on File, New York
South-west Athens
Panathenaic Way
-A major road which is going across the
city of Athens, diagonally dividing the
agora or the market place.
Named after the procession which took
place during the festival of the
Panathenaia. (Athena’s birthday).
Linked all the sacred and major public
spaces across the city together.

Agora in Archaic Period (500

Functions of an agora:
Market-place, a place of
assembly, and a seating
for ceremonies and
assemblies. (Ward-
Perkins, JB 1974)
To the south was the old
bouleuterion (or the
Council House) and to the
north were three small
temples.

Agora in Classical Period (420
BC)
The Temple of Hephaestos
was built. It sets into motion a
shaft of space. It makes its
influence felt as an ordering
element. (Bacon, 1976)
The Kolonos and the Acropolis
connect with each despite the
distance because of the
architectural rhythm of the
colonades.
The South Stoa begins to
define the enclosure of the
Agora. The Ecclesia now needs
meeting space.

‘The clear open quality of

Additions: Temple of Ares,
many fountains and statues
were added. Clumsy Roman
gift of the Odeion of Agrippa.
The Odeion overpowers the
shaft of space and wobbles
the balance of elements.

Planning of Acropolis
Shift from Acropolis to Agora
 Agora took the place which was previously of
the Acropolis or of the King.
 The artisan and residential colonies began to
move westwards and northwards, towards the
open country side.
 Towards 6th
century, public buildings began to
take shape along the foot hills of Kolonos.
 East of the Panathenaic Way, a large public
fountain was built.

After the Wars
Image Source: http://documents-macedon.blogspot.in
Pireus and Athens
Unlike Athens, other
cities were being
planned after the Wars.
Athens being afraid of
another Spartan Attack,
did not plan and build.
Became protective, built
walls around the city.
Roman Intervention

Athens
Temple of Olympian Zeus
The Temple's
foundation was laid by
Pisistratus in 515 BC.
During the years of
Greek Democracy, the
work was left
unfinished due to
Financial and Political
issues.
After many attempts to
complete it, it was
finally completed by
Hadrian (Roman) in 2nd
century AD.

  • 7. Streets Narrow and winding roads, on steeper ground reduced to stairs. Inconstant road width. ‘Athens was a city of contrasts.

  • 10. Agora in Classical Period (420 BC) The Temple of Hephaestos was built. It sets into motion a shaft of space. It makes its influence felt as an ordering element. (Bacon, 1976) The Kolonos and the Acropolis connect with each despite the distance because of the architectural rhythm of the colonades. The South Stoa begins to define the enclosure of the Agora. The Ecclesia now needs meeting space. Image Source: Travlos, J 1980, Pictorial Dictionary of Ancient Athens, Hacker Art Books.

  • 11. Agora in Hellenistic Period (200 BC) Full Maturity of Agora Additions: Metroon replaced old Bouleutrion , Temple of Apollo Patroos, South middle Stoa and Stoa of Attalos (east stoa). The South Stoa was rebuilt at a different angle. Everything developed respecting the shaft of space. Image Source: Travlos, J 1980, Pictorial Dictionary of Ancient Athens, Hacker Art Books.

  • 12. Agora in 2nd cent. AD ‘The clear open quality of the uncluttered space of earlier periods is gone, and in its place confusion has set in.’ (Bacon, 1976) Additions: Temple of Ares, many fountains and statues were added. Clumsy Roman gift of the Odeion of Agrippa. The Odeion overpowers the shaft of space and wobbles the balance of elements.
