What does ancient greek architecture tell about their beliefs?
Greek gods. The ancient Greeks believed in gods that lived on mt Olympus.
They were polytheistic and believed the gods controlled everyone and everything for a reason.
Ancient Greeks invented architecture because they built grandbuildings to honor their gods. They had plenty of stone available.
There are three main types of Greek architecture, Doric, Ionic andCorinthian. Doric style tended to have a plain capital, Ioniccolumns always have bases and have narrower flut…es, Corinthian issimilar to Ionic, however they have highly decorated capitals.

Well, April 20th is national pot day, if you did not know.
Virtually all buildings in ancient Greece, including homes, were built in accordance to the golden section (1.618), or rather, mathematical principles that dictate that the me…asurements of a building have to equal that number. A rectangular shape, or triangular one, is only "beautiful" if after running some numbers regarding the overall dimensions, you get the golden secion. Wikipedia has the equation to run the numbers in; my math skills stink, so from my limited understanding I think what they were saying was, crudely put "measure everything, then run the numbers with this equation, if you get the golden section its beautiful." Designing a building with the golden section in mind is extremely difficult, because the design makes for twice the work. The ancient Greeks were willing to put in the work though because they were using marble for many of their public buildings and temples. Because with marble you only get one shot at it, given how heavy the stone is, how difficult it is to build with it, the ancient Greeks made up their minds to make every building beautiful. Even though most of it is in ruins now, ancient Greek architecture is still awe inspiring by people who see it first hand.
