The Evolution of Greek Architecture
The Evolution of Greek Architecture. Consider how the evolution of Greek architecture is similar to the evolution of the human form that you studied in the last module when looking at Ancient Greek sculpture.
How did the change of Greek architecture with respect to space, proportion, scale, material, and the Golden Ratio evolve in a similar way to that of their sculpture?
Using examples of architecture from the Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods, compare their development to the transformation of Greek sculpture. Cite at least one scholarly source in your three-paragraph analysis.
What is one way that Greek architecture changed over time?
What does the evolution of Greek temple architecture tell us of the relationship between the individual and the built form? Consider the concepts of perspective, space, materials, light, and the visibility of the sculptural program when answering the question. Select an example of a Greek temple from the Archaic, Classical, or Hellenistic period and discuss how the form of the building engages with the viewer. Consider the sculptural details, what is visible, and from what vantage point.
