The splendid Athens University was designed by the Danish architect Christian Hansen and completed in 1864. It still serves as the university's administrative headquarters. On its left is the Athens Academy, designed by Hansen's brother Theophile and completed in 1885. The Ionian-style entrance mimics the eastern entrance to the Erechtheion. Neither is open to the public.
