Ancient Greek Art and Architecture
The ancient civilization developed a distinct architectural style that modern architecture continues to reference.

Greek Temple Architecture

With its rectangular stone platform, front and back porches, and rows of columns, the Parthenon was a commanding example of Greek temple architecture.
Typically, the people of ancient Greece did not worship inside their temples as we do today.
Instead, the interior room was relatively small, housing just a statue of the deity the temple was built to honor.
Worshippers gathered outside, entering only to bring offerings to the statue.
The temples of classical Greece all shared the same general form: Rows of columns supporting a horizontal entablature and a triangular roof.
At each end of the roof, above the entablature, was a triangular space known as the pediment, into which sculptors squeezed elaborate scenes.
On the Parthenon, for example, the pediment sculptures show the birth of Athena on one end and a battle between Athena and Poseidon on the other.
So that people standing on the ground could see them, these pediment sculptures were usually painted bright colors and were arrayed on a solid blue or red background.
