This book as published to mark the exhibition of the architectural oeuvre of Constantinos Dekavallas at the Benaki Museum, in October 2008.

He was subsequently architect for the National Bank of Greece (1960-1969), while in tandem, from 1960 to the present day he has run his own architectural and design practice. In 1980 he was elected a professor of the N.T.U.A. School of Architecture.
The catalogue includes 74 projects and designs, from 1952 to the present day, some of which were carried out, others which were never built, and includes photographs, designs, sketches and a short description of each project undertaken by the architect.
