The building of the Music school of Athens is part of the project which won 1st prize in a competition held in 1959 for the Athens Cultural Centre. The unit has a length of 160 meters, and the mass of the building extends about ten meters above and below ground level. With its endless line of rectangular columns reminds a modern version of the ancient Agora. There are 35 classrooms and two teaching amphitheatres, staffrooms, a music library, a concert hall seating 820, a chapel and public areas for artistic events and meetings. Particular care was taken over the constructional details of the building, which is faced in marble revetments, and over the design of false ceilings, planned so as to optimize the acoustics.
