- from Greece’s Golden Age
Ancient Greek architecture came back into style a few hundred years ago. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, Neoclassicism became popular. (The Golden Age of Greece was known as the Classical Period.) Around the world, designers dreamed up buildings that looked a lot like the Parthenon.
Washington, D.C., has many examples, including the Lincoln Memorial. Others include Germany’s Walhalla memorial, Scotland’s National Monument, and Moscow University in Russia. Look at these newer buildings. How do they look like the Parthenon? How are they different?
