made of2 pieces The First piece looks similar to the pillow with a square abacus Fluted column Above it rests 2 horizontal layers one that is called the Architrave and above that is called the Frieze The Doric frieze is made up of alternating triglyphs Separated by Metopes blank squares Triglyphes are thought to represent the end of the beam and the metope would represent the opening History of columns changes based on proportions Columns are very fat and they are wider at base than they are at the neck Shaft curves opposite of Minoan columns Curvature of column shaft is called the entesis Entesis is deliberate For aesthetic reasons The columns mimic the human body under compression form carrying heavy weight the stone resting on top of column Triglyph should rest over the center of every column with one in the space in between Corners are not at the center they force them to join at corner which marks the lonic Doric is earliest order strong masculine Bulbous capital is getting smaller More re ned VWde abacus sitting on top ofthe rounded form ofthe capital underneath Capital is large in comparison to the neck of the shaft Taper from narrower neck to larger base entesis This

cella 2 room cella I The interior is an amphiprostyle section with another row of columns that goes around the entire t in I Double cella columns inside cella columns arcos porch on either end and then columns around the entire thing I Columns that go around the entire temple are called a Peristyle Aka colonnade I Temple with a perister is a Periteral Temple 0 Lower Right I Dipteral Temple a

have a cornice which is aframe around the pediments o All orders have a double band of some kind at the bottom ofthe entablature O m I Triple band at the pediment I Capital is scrolllike called volute or ramps horn shape I Slender o Corinthian also has the triple band I Leafy capital I Most elegant feminine order I Almost never used by the Greeks I More slender visually looks taller than the others 0 lonic and Corinthian both have a blank band 0 In both lonic and Corinthian sculpture can go in the blank space 0 Proportions also change lonic and Corinthian columns sit on stacks 0 Both l and C shafts are slender than Doric Doric is shorter and fatter Scale width of each ute is the width of a man39s body in a Peristyle o Entablature everything on top Classical Era see slide for info Athens Ca 450 BCE Site of lSt temple to Athena 7 story tall statue of Athena made of ivory and gold Front doors would open to the cellawhere the statue would stand and the sun would directly illuminate the sculpture into the building on this day of celebration Ordinary people would not go into the temples Ground plan the Parthenon directly across from that is the Erectheum then the main gat way called the propylaea then the tiny temple dedicated to Athena Small temple at entrance way is now gone Partheno o n Dedicated to Athena According to mythology Athena and posideon were I con ict pver who would hae the prime site on the mountain and they had to strike water from a rock and Athena won lktinos and Kallikrates architects Periteral plan with perister and colonnade surrounding it standing on the stylobate 2chambered cella O In the larger cella there is a row of columns that surrounds the central part ofthe cells The rectangle reps the base for the statue Behind that is another chamber w4 columns in the middle At either end ofthe doubleroomed cella there are columns that go across each end Prostyle temple surrounded by a peristyle At each end there is a double row of columns lSt row is part of the peristyle and the 2quotd row is part ofthe temple itself Doric Order peristyle with trygliphs and metapes that surround the entire temple Behind the Doric peristyle there is Ionic order because surrounding the entire cella is a continuous sculptural frieze No sculpture ever in the Doric order So to have those sculptures we have to have the lonic order The example of Doric order in Greek architecture is not absolutely Doric it has Doric and lonic It39s an lonic temple with a Doric peristyle 0 Largest amount of Classical sculpture was on the Parthenon behind the entablature of the peristyle Stereobate is huge compared to peo le Man is the measure of all standards Stereobate is curves so that it39s invisible to the naked eye this means that the columns must be curved as well The whole entablature must curve as well 0 Absolute horizontals tend to curve up and absolute verticals look like they39re leaning out So columns ofthe Parthenon lean slightly towards the center to avoid it looking like they39re leaning 0 Old Photo at bottom shows curvature of stereobate 0 Continuous narrative sculpture that runs around the interior upper wall lonic Freize Columns underneath is Doric Horsemen can be seen in the pictures Elgin Marbles see slide for info Duveen Gallery 0 Overlapping legs carved in the frieze Anatomy of horses is very knowledgeable 0 Good representation of both

porches l at end of cella then a big porch that overlooks the city and a smaller one that faces the Parthenon 0 lonic order which columns that stands on bases Engaged columns not freestanding support columns Aesthetic use of order to attach column to wall Articulate a surface that39s visually interesting but is not a structure 0 The columns shaft is a gure Female gures that function as columns called Caryatid 0 These gures are standing in aweightshift position controposto Which shows that they understood balance 0 Weight bearing leg is on the outside on the corners but the other leg is the weight bearing on the gures in the center 92409 caitlin s notes These 2 things are part ofa set that began last class Erechtheion ca 421407 BC supposed site of the contest between Athena and Poseidon 2 levels to accommodate site directly across from the Parthanon odd shape has to do with fitting into the terrain femae figures in quotposture at ease that serve as columns quotPorch of the Maidens

height of a column is directly related to the diameter of its base so if a column ran the entire height of the building the base would be too large That s why there are multiple levels Model of the
