ANCIENT INFLUENCE

We decided to use the Parthenon because of its close relation to the Capitols design. When comparing the two buildings exterior and interior elements, it isnt hard to see the impacting influence of the Parthenon on the U.S Capitol. Although the overall structure of the two buildings is individually unique, they both manage to have very clear and identifiable similarities.

WHY WE CHOSE THE CAPITOL?


We chose to do our project on the U.S Capitol because of its popularity and distinct features of ancient architecture.

CONCLUSION
From this project, we learned that most architectural pieces today were made possible through the contributions and influence of ancient architecture. Without the contributions of early architecture, traditional architecture might have been lost and the possibilities we know today might have be limited!
