Liberated from the search for a modern Greek identity and keeping up with contemporary international trends, Ghika elaborates an undisciplined and attractive function of the form. His Athenian balconies, famous for his unique handling for an unusual geometric idiom, are a recurring theme for the artist. This impressive work with its simple yet sharp design effortlessly reveal his compositional prowess and design fluency, as are a certain sweetness and musicality. The harmony in the relationships between the volumes is pervasive liberating the composition.
