This object has the following keywords:
  • architectural drawing
  • architecture - The art or science of designing and building structures, especially habitable structures, in accordance with principles determined by aesthetic and practical or material considerations. For a general term for the actual structures or parts of structures that were made by human beings, see "architecture (object genre)."
  • Doric - Refers to the architectural style associated with the first of both the three Greek architectural orders and the later five traditional classical orders of architecture that, with Ionic, Corinthian, Tuscan, and Composite, was used by the Romans and through the Renaissance and beyond. It may have origins in wooden Bronze Age structures, and stone versions of the style developed on mainland Greece, probably in Dorian Corinth and other cities such as Athens, in the eighth and seventh centuries BCE. In ancient Greek architecture, it is characterized by a simple form and imposing scale, an undecorated abacus and echinus, columns with no base or pedestal and shafts with twenty shallow flutes, and an entablature with three elements, a plain architrave, a frieze composed of alternate triglyphs and metopes, and a strongly projecting cornice. The Roman and later adaptations often display modifications of the strict Greek rules and may include some decoration and a base for the columns. For the assemblage forming associated columns, use "Doric order."
  • temples - Institutions focused on the worship of a deity or deities.
