These times of treacherous infiction of alien idols, images, and lotuses, the disclosure, reading and enhancement of the particular identity of a place and its people has become an issue of clear survival. A crucial characteristic of this identity is the environment (both natural and built). The ancient Greek builtscape, permeated by a sensitive sense of whole, a precious complementarity of built and natural, a definite human scale, and a venerated cultural tradition, acquired a clear and concrete identity enhancing human existence. This paper is a genuine, instinctive sprout of my personal living experience in and of Greece. Its aim has been to activate and cultivate a fresh reading of the ancient Greek builtscape which through gradual metamorphoses elaborates a permanent attitude towards landscape. The Agora in Athens gives an eloquent example of the idea of builtspace and the relationshiop of builtscape and landscape in ancient Greece. Its developement since archaic times up to hellenistic years epitomizes the etymology, syntactic structure, and perceptual organization of ancient Greek builtscape. A projection of nearly 50 slides will accompany this paper.
