Course Content (Syllabus)
Architectural remains belonging to the Hellenistic period and the way in which they are combined to form the cityscape are presented in this course. The definition of architecture, which is the subject of the course, is followed by the presentation of the ancient and modern sources on architecture. The building materials and building technique are examined, as well as the use and processing of building materials and mainly of the stone. The different parts of ancient buildings from the foundations to the roof, are thoroughly presented. Emphasis is given to structures and building techniques that appear or become widespread during the Hellenistic period. The main characteristics, and the development of the orders of ancient Greek architecture are reminded to the students attending the course. The decoration of the buildings is presented, and the different types of ancient Greek buildings and structures are described (temples, altars, theatres, guesthouses, houses, palaces, funerary monuments, fortifications etc). The distinct characteristics of the Hellenistic organisation of sanctuaries and town planning are emphasised. Students who attend the course are expected to understand the main principles of Hellenistic architecture and the evolution that took place at that time in comparison with the Archaic and Classical periods. At the same time, they are expected to acquire basic knowledge concerning the most important monuments of the period examined. The course includes visits to archeaological sites.
