Artifact: The amount of details express in the gerogliphics are fascinating. The execution of the craftsmanship is incredible.
Space: the perfect layout of the building to provide a spiritual experience is priceless and timeless.
Place: Egypt takes its inspiration from the renewal of life along the Nile River. This brings a sense of renovation and immortality to the architecture.
Artifact: the innovation of a new passionate culture is reflected in the carvings or sculptural relieves along the entablature of the buildings. The attention to detail is in my opinion what separate this culture from the others and sets an example for the generations to come.
Place: the buildings on ancient Greece are simply the epitome of perfection! The thorough careful planning of every detail, from proportion to balance, to optical illusions to create perfection. Is absolutely imprecise!
Place: the inspiration of a very historical society the closeness to nature and the sea. Brings the buildings to life, in the sense that they are like a beautiful ornamental mirror that reflects their surrounding and makes the landscape better.
Artifact: Rome is such a historical society. They took direct inspiration from Greece and make what was good even better. The attention to details was impressive. The classic vocabulary is eminent though out the city. The new materials implemented granted the ability to create greater monuments of classic architecture.
Place: “All roads lead to Rome” distribution of the city grid allowed the buildings in Rome to concentrate their efforts inward and create greatness inside. The closeness of the buildings made of a wonderful passageway to admire the architectural marbles of the time. Almost like a pilgrimage of beautiful buildings.
