Talented Greek Architects
By Colleen Messina
  

1     The ancient Greeks were talented. They wrote big poems. They did marble sculptures. They also designed beautiful buildings, especially in the city of Athens. Some things you see on buildings today were found in ancient Greece.
 
2     An architect designs buildings. The Greek architects were smart. They designed the Parthenon as a temple to Pallas Athena. It had a rectangular shape. It had columns all on its sides. It used to be red, blue, and gold. Inside the temple stood a large, gold-and-ivory statue. Pericles was in charge of this temple. People in Athens were proud of it.
 
3     Today, the colors of the Parthenon have disappeared. It is plain and cream-colored. People still think that it was the most important building in history. Architects everywhere copied its classical style. They liked its dazzling columns.
