Athens Chancery Major Rehabilitation at the American Embassy

Embassy of the united states

In 1961, the US Diplomatic Service engaged Walter Gropius to design the US Embassy’s Athens Chancery as an icon of modern architecture and a symbol of United States diplomacy abroad. GGN is part of the team now tasked with rehabilitating the landmark building and historic site, in keeping with the high standards established by Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations’ Excellence in Diplomatic Facilities initiative.
