The Lamda (λamda) Project was founded in May 2018 as an effort to deliver high quality culture education by investing in a different understanding of what culture is. We offer Greek Language programs, Ancient Greek Language courses and courses related to Greek history and culture (Greek philosophy, mythology, history) as well.
The Lamda schools in Athens Greece is located in the center of Athens, in a very nice listed and protected neoclassical building which was built in 1880 and was fully renovated in 2000.
Besides the ancient Greek jewels, Athens also has a various collection of neoclassical architecture elements around the city. Born in classical Greece, exported to Europe and reintroduced in the modern Greek state, Athenian neoclassicism gives the Greek capital a unique style.
The history of Athenian neoclassicism takes us back to the years of the rebirth of the ancient city, after the Occupation from the Turks and the War of Independence in the third decade of the 19th century, and it had a strongly symbolic character: it echoed the romantic idea that modern Greece were the direct descendant and natural heir of ancient Greece.
The idea was that Athens should become a city to glorify classicism. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was a purely neoclassical city. From 1910 and mainly after 1930, however, the modernist movement made a dynamic appearance, but it did not necessarily mean the influence of neoclassicism disappeared altogether.
Unfortunately, the greatest changes took place after World War II with many demolitions of “older” buildings and the construction of modern multi-storied apartment blocks designed to meet new housing needs and to face the economical problems of the society etc.
The period 1950-1980 was destructive for Athens and the many architectural masterpieces. The image of the neoclassical city has changed. The mass destruction in such a short time prompted reactions from politicians, journalists and intellectuals, which in turn led to the drafting of a state plan for the protection of all important – both public and private – surviving buildings.
In one of these great buildings that survived are our schools in Athens Greece located and we are really proud of it!
