Abstract

In 1944 amidst the Nazi occupation, a book on Greece circulated in the
Netherlands, was quickly sold-out and circulated again in 1946 and 1951. Its
title was Hellas. Een reis door Griekenland [Hellas. A journey through Greece]
and its author was Arthur Staal (1907-1993), a young architect who found
himself in the epicenter of the developments of Dutch modernism, and whose
achievements in the drawing board were paralleled with his ventures in faraway
countries of the Middle East and the Mediterranean. The country of Greece,
and its landscape were of particular importance to him and the development of
his architectural thinking.
