The neoclassicism flourished in Athens when it was the architectural style followed by all of the architects who were responsible for the reconstruction of the capital by order of King Otto in 1830.
In the beginning, the neoclassical style copied the ancient Greek buildings. Later on it progressed in an original Greek structure, with true representative the "Athenian Trilogy" of Panepistimiou Avenue, and some buildings in Plaka as well.
Expressive figures of the style that was popular in the rest of Europe were the Danish architects, Theophilus and Christian Hansen, and the German, Ernst Ziller.
