Transcript of Copy of Poleis and architecture

Ancient Greek architecture is best known through its temples and theatres.

Common materials of Greek architecture were wood, used for supports and roof beams; plaster, used for sinks and bathtubs; unbaked brick, used for walls, especially for private homes; limestone and marble, used for columns, walls, and upper portions of temples and public buildings; terracotta, used for roof tiles and ornaments; and metals, especially bronze, used for decorative details There were two main styles of early Greek architecture,
the Doric and the Ionic.
These names were used by the Greeks themselves. The Doric style was used
in mainland Greece and
spread from there
to the Greek colonies in Italy The Ionic style was used
in the cities of Ionia
(now the west coast of Turkey)
and some of the Aegean islands. The more ornate Corinthian style was
a later development of the Ionic Here you can see the differences between Doric,Ionic and Corinthian collums Poleis
