History - Ancient Civilizations

In this project we will look at how Greek and Roman architecture has inspired modern buildings in Washington D.C. and then in Huntington W.V.

Look at the gigapans of Greek and Roman architecture. What do you notice when you look at the buildings? What is the style of Greek and Roman architecture?  Why do you think it is still used today?

Compare it to the gigipans of Washington D.C., do you see many similarities? Why would Greek and Roman design be used in Washington DC.?
