- from Greece’s Golden Age
The ancient Greeks had a lasting effect on architecture. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, Neoclassicism became popular. (The Golden Age of Greece was known as the Classical Period.) Around the world, people designed 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 buildings. Do they look like the Parthenon? In what ways? How are they different?
