Professor and Class, In discussing the architectural styles of Ancient Greece and Rome, I think the Doric and Ionic orders as well as the Corinthian order are the first things to look at. The Doric order is where the columns are fluted and have no base. They are simpler in style. The Ionic are scrolled at the top. The Corinthian are the fanciest, the Romans liked these the most. This picture on page 52 of our book shows it the best. I had to enlarge it to read each one, but I think it is the best descriptions with pictures for me to understand the differences. I think these are important because these are the styles that we still see today, especially in Washington D.C as well as many state capitol buildings. In the met museum tour it showed this picture of a marble column in the Temple of Artemis. This is an example of an Ionic column, as it is fluted and is scrolled.

Many times you with notice one of three types of columns used. The Doric, Ionic and the Corinthian be the three main notable architecture styles. The Corinthian is the most detailed and often the most favorite of the Romans. (Sayre, H., 2012, pg. 52) One of the most famous Roman

Thank you very much for your post, Nan. As you mentioned, the influence of the historic Greek architecture is noticeable in the governmental building of the United States. The Greek’s big and beautiful building with columns represent power (Sayre, 2013), and our architects are transmitting the same sense of power went they use this columns styles in our governmental building.
