Welcome to Erechtheion by Matt!

When I first signed up for this class, my main interest was focused on the buildings and architecture of ancient greece. When I would think about greek buildings what first came to mind would be a large rectangular prism with an obtuse isosceles triangle on the top and large columns all around it. Naturally, my eyes were drawn to this kind of architecture. Symmetry and perfect proportions can be very pleasing to the eye. In class when we learned about the Erechtheion, I was shocked to see that it was almost completely different than all the other Greek buildings I've seen. It lacked both perfect proportions and symmetry, which made me want to learn more.
