Minecraft Architecture - Greek
To exercise my building skills in Minecraft's creative mode, I looked at closely replicating the look and feel of classical greek architecture.
The statue above was built to resemble the Athena Parthenos and similar statues.
Classical architecture follows a pattern of orders. My first step was to experiment with configurations for finding how best to represent the proportions of these orders. Below can be seen my media tests for the Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian orders (I chose Corinthian for the temple itself).
Greek architecture has a lot to say about ratios. This particular temple was styled as Hexastyle Pseudoperipteral.
