- from Greece’s Golden Age
In the 18th and early 19th centuries, ancient Greek architecture came back into style thanks to a movement called Neoclassicism. (The Golden Age of Greece was also 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 are they like the Parthenon, and how are they different?
