Module 4 Discussion: Ancient Greek Architecture

Need help with my History question – I’m studying for my class.

Choose a Greek temple from the Archaic through the Classical age (built before 323 BCE) not discussed in the module and research the internet for information on it. Provide a citation/link to the site you found most helpful, an image attachment of the temple, and provide a summary of your findings divided up into 3 paragraphs for context, function & style. (Be sure to present the information in your own words). Are there any interesting myths or stories associated with it? Since the Greeks were inspired by the Egyptians to build stone temples, how does it compare with Egyptian architecture?

Bonus: Give an example from the last 300 years (or so) of buildings strongly influenced by Greek architecture. Discuss the similarities between the ancient and modern examples in terms of both style and function and provide an image or link to the more recent example.
