This research uses vision as a methodological tool in order to highlight the relationship
between vision and architecture as represented through Constantinos Doxiadis’ dissertation
which analyses architectural space in ancient Greece using a system of visual angles. This
relationship between vision and architecture as represented through Doxiadis’ dissertation
designates his association with a broader philosophical environment of the European midwar
era where theories concerning the aesthetic dimension of vision are at the forefront.
Doxiadis’ dissertation as a characteristic paradigm of early modernism brings forth a
certain conceptualisation of vision as an analytical and aesthetic tool used in architectural
design. Nineteenth-century architectural theory advanced vision as the most important
amongst other senses. Since Choisy’s concept of the picturesque at the Acropolis there is a
theoretical tradition about the way the observer understands architectural space through
a series of successive perspective images. Architecture always deals with phenomena.
Visual representation transfers the experience of the object when the actual object is absent.
