Greek Architecture (Classical World)

by

Greek Architecture (Classical World) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A clearly structured discussion of all the major buildings constructed by the
Greeks, from houses to temples, theatres to council buildings. The book
describes particular architectural styles and features and sets the buildings
in their context, with an evaluation of their purpose, siting and
planning.

Synopsis:

This volume describes architecture in the Greek land from the prehistoric settlements of Troy, the Minoan palaces of Crete and their counterparts in the Mycenean kingdoms, to the absorption of Hellenism into the Roman Empire. The book pays particular attention to the early period, supplying a large-scale account of the development of pre-Hellenic building. Then the evolution of temples and other religious buildings is traced. Two chapters follow the history of town planning and civic building, while others cover the development of the theatre and such topics as Greek masonry, vaulting and fortification.
