An itinerary leading from analysis of Minoan Crete to the constructions of the Hellenistic age, with particular attention to civil architecture, a reflection of the most original feature of ancient Greece.

[Greek Architecture] An extraordinary range of images retrace the history of Greek architecture, from in-depth analysis of Minoan Crete – or the beginning of the history of Western architecture – to Mycenae and the magnificence of Doric religious architecture: from the temples of Corinth, Delphi and the Acropolis, to those of Magna Grecia. The volume then devotes ample space to civil architecture, which reflects the formation and evolution of the political community, the most original feature of ancient Greece. The final part is on the Hellenistic phase, with thorough documentation of the innovations and unique features, proving that this period was anything but decadent.
