The Athens Center of Ekistics (ACE) was established in 1963 to foster a concerted program of research, education, documentation, and international cooperation related to the art and science concerned with the development of human settlements. Its publications include EKISTICS, the Problems and Science of Human Settlements, the Ekistic Index of Periodicals, and also a series of research reports and monographs documenting its four major research projects: The City of the Future, The Capital of Greece, The Human Community and The Ancient Greek Cities. Since 1965, ACE has hosted on its premises the Headquarters and Secretariat of the World Society for Ekistics (WSE), an independent organization, whose goals and objectives are compatible with those of ACE. The Athens Office closed in 2017 with the passing of its President Mr. Panayis Psomopoulos.
