Parthenon
  
 Acropolis, Athens



  

 Architect by Ictinus & Callicrates with Phidias in 447-432 BC. Construction system is bearing masonry, cut stone, mediterranean ceremonial complex of Ancient Greek Doric style. On the historic Acropolis. Doric exemplar. Dimensions of the temple at the top step are 30.9 m x 69.5 m. The steps were 508 mm high, 'too high to use, so intermediate steps were provided at the centre of each of the short sides.' The eastern room was 29.8 m long by 19.2 m wide, with internal Doric colonnades in two tier, structurally necessary to support the roof timbers. On the exterior, the Doric columns measure 1.9 m in diameter and are 10.4 m high, approximately 5 1/2 times the diameter. The corner columns are slightly larger in diameter, with their spacing reduced to make it possible for the frieze to conform to the rule that it must terminate with a triglyph.The stylobate has an upward curvature towards its centre of 60 mm on the east and west ends, and of 110 mm on the sides.
