‘[Un]finished’ presents the phenomenon of a particular kind of pending architecture, mutely present all over Athens. The concrete skeletons of ‘polykatoikia’ – multistorey apartment buildings – are emblematic of the development of modern Greece throughout the second half of the 20th century. This book deals with the politics of urban space by treating these unfinished buildings as study objects and tracing their individual histories. Through stories from current owners and photographs, archival documents, and found artefacts, a different chronicle of the development of modern Athens takes shape.
