Sinopsis: Three thousand years ago the Greeks built monuments that have come to epitomize Western culture, such as the Parthenon and the Temple of Athena. In this book, a renowned architectural historian reexamines buildings and sites of Greek classical antiquity, not as expressions of pedantic, archaic rules, but as truly innovative paradigms - and shows how they gave rise to modern architecture.

Classical Greek Architecture features fascinating archival photographs, site maps, and architectural plans. It discusses not only the technology but also the myths, rituals, social structures, and political conflicts that left their mark in the ultimate design of a given building. With chapters covering a range of topics from the status of Greek architecture today and the uses of the various types of buildings to the influences of African and Asian cultures on the Greeks, this is a thorough, scholarly, yet accessible work of reference.

Biografía del autor: Alexander Tzonis studied at Yale and later taught at Harvard. He is currently chair in Architectural Theory and Design Methods at the University of Technology in Delft, Holland, and is the director of Design Knowledge Systems, a multidisciplinary architectural research center. He has written a number of major works on architecture, including Le Corbusier: Poetics of Machine and Metaphor (Universe, 2001).
