"The Architecture of Mount Athos"

A selection of photos from the Archive of Pavlos Mylonas.

Continuing the presentation of exhibitions held during its 20-year journey (2000-2020), the Mount Athos Center presented today the exhibition "The architecture of Mount Athos through the archive of Pavlos Mylonas", which was implemented in the framework of the 5th Scientific Conference on "The Architecture of Mount Athos.History and research ", in 2010.


Pavlos Mylonas's long-term relationship with Mount Athos began in 1954 after his return from the USA.and was maintained until his death in 2005. The result of this working relationship was the creation of an Mount Athos archive of impressive completeness that goes beyond the simple architectural record, as through the rich material emerges an anthropological dimension of the place.


The exhibition included samples from the whole range of his architectural work, which concerns the research and the imprinting of the monumental treasure of Mount Athos, from the preparatory phases of the imprints to the finished form of the architectural plans, ready for publication. Emphasis was placed on anecdotal material (design and photography) from the hermitages and hermitages, which constitute even today the most unknown side of Mount Athos. Part of the exhibition was the photographic material, aerial photography, which took place thanks to the ingenuity and passion of the excellent Pavlos Mylonas.


In the exhibition, which was held in collaboration with the Archives of Modern Greek Architecture of the Benaki Museum, in addition to the work of Pavlos Mylonas, a valuable material of the Uspensky and Sevastianov expeditions was presented.
