In the series world famous ancient architecture: The Kariatides of the Parthenon, Athens, Greece. The Acropolis at first was a stronghold but later on it became the political centre of Athens. Finally it evolved into one of the major religious centres of Hellas. Whatever its function was, the Acropolis has always been the heart of Athens and is seen by many as the crown on the Greek civilisation. The best architects and builders constructed the buildings which came close to the perfection of Greek ideals. The Acropolis site has four main temples. The Parthenon was the first temple to be built. It was dedicated to the Virgin goddess Athena. Then followed the construction of the impressive Propylaea temple by the architect Mnisicles. A little later a third architect, Kallikrates, built the elegant temple of Athena Niki. Last to be built was the Erechtheion temple in 420 BC. The elegant South Porch of the Kariatides gives only a faint notion of the luxurious construction of the Erechtheion temple. Kariatides are female figures used as architectural supports in place of columns, a feature associated with Ionic architecture. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001.

In the series world famous ancient architecture: Temple of the Olympion Zeus, Athens, Greece. Just South East of the Acropolis stand the remains of a magnificent edifice known as the Temple of the Olympian Zeus. According to Aristotle, the temple was build by Pisistratos whose purpose for building the temple was to keep the people too busy to indulge in plots against himself. And busy they were. Construction started in the middle of the 6th century BC and with many interruptions was completed some 650 years later by Antiochus IV Ephiphanes, king of Syria. Dedicated to the god Zeus, today there are only 15 of the original 104 Corinthian columns still standing. The columns, each 56 feet high, are of Pentelic marble and have slender shafts and finely carved Corinthian capitals. Although many of the columns were tumbled by later invaders, enough remain that one may easily be awe-struck by the immenseness of this creation. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001.

In the series world famous architecture: The Koppelpoort, Amersfoort, The Netherlands. Located in the centre of the country on the river Eem, Amersfoort was a geographically attractive location on the way to the North and East of the country, and functioned as an important settlement for trading purposes. Amersfoort was fortified in the 12th century and construction of the town wall commenced in 1259, the purpose being to defend the city against hostilities. Amersfoort was such a prosperous city that a century later an entirely new town wall with gates was built including the Koppelpoort, a water gate dating from around 1400 and spanning the river Eem. By aid of a great wooden wheel, a huge wooden door could be lowered and so close off the city in times of trouble. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands.

In the series world famous ancient architecture: The Great Pyramid, Khufu, Egypt and the Obelisk of Thutmoses III, Rome, Italy. The most enigmatic aspect of the Great Pyramid is its shafts, which has made it perhaps the most mysterious building of the ancient world. These shafts go up the northern and southern sides of the pyramid and their purpose is still a mystery, although there have been countless theories. The Great Pyramid was also the first and only standing ancient wonder of the world to be built. It was the largest man made structure in the world until the 19th century AD and it measures about 137.5 metres up. 2.3 million blocks were used in the making and each weighed approximately 2.5 metric tons. The Egyptian obelisk that stands in the square of St. John Lateran in Rome is the largest in existence. Originally carved during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmoses III, it stood in the Temple of Amon in Thebes in Karnak, Egypt, but was removed to Rome by emperor Constantius (AD 317-361). The obelisk meant to honour the sun god. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands. View Micra polypropylene loop pile carpet tiles.

In the series world famous architecture: The Alhambra, Grenada, Spain. On a hill overlooking Granada, construction of the Alhambra—a sprawling palace-citadel that comprised royal residential quarters, court complexes flanked by official chambers, a bath, and a mosque—was begun in the thirteenth century by Ibn al-Ahmar, founder of the Nasrid dynasty, and was continued by his successors in the fourteenth century. Its most celebrated portions, a series of courtyards surrounded by rooms present a varied repertoire of Moorish arched, columnar, and domical forms. The romantic imagination of centuries of visitors has been captivated by the special combination of the slender columnar arcades, fountains and light-reflecting water basins found in those courtyards. The Lion Court in particular is understood from inscriptions to be a physical realization of descriptions of Paradise in Islamic poetry. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001.

In the series world famous architecture: Merchants' canal houses and the Westertoren, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.  The merchants’ canal houses are characterised by narrow, relatively tall facades, often richly crowned by ornamented gable tops. Typical forms are the stepped gables, neck gables and bell shaped gables. The reason behind the characteristic shape of the Amsterdam facades is the fact that the plots were narrow and deep with the narrow side facing the canal. It is crucial to realise that as a result the ridges of the saddle roofs were at right angles to the facades. Ornamental gable tops came to use as a way to hide the saddle roofs from view. Although every house was build as a separate entity with its own roof, front door and facade, together they form a unified whole. This is one of the reasons why the Amsterdam City centre is such a unique and rare whole. The Westertoren was built in 1638. It was designed by the architect Hendrick de Keyser, who played a dominating role in Amsterdam’s architecture of the early decades of the 17th century. He single-handedly created what is known today as the Amsterdam Renaissance style. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands.

In the series world famous ancient architecture: Tomb of  Viracocha, Tiahuanaco, Peru. For centuries scholars have been baffled by Inca accounts that spoke of legendary white gods that walked the lands of South America performing miracles. Stranger still were the carvings left by the mysterious civilisations of Tiahuanaco, thought to be the most ancient site on earth. Both the Aztecs and Incas had cultures that were thriving and quite advanced in many ways. The architecture, calendars, and art of these peoples were at least to European standards, if not superior in quality. The Incas, which had a great technology when the Europeans were still barbaric nomads, said that their technology was taught to them by Viracocha. The myth of the great civilising god Viracocha also tells that he spoke to the people with great kindness and that he gave them a code to live by: to be good and injure none, to love one another and to show charity to all. He had great strength and skills in science, architecture, sculpture, medicine, and engineering. Finally when he thought his civilising mission was completed, he stepped into the ocean disappearing into the sea. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands.

In the series world famous architecture: Tower Bridge and Westminster, the Big Ben - London, England. Completed in 1894, the Tower Bridge in its time was the largest and most sophisticated bascule bridge ever built. Over 11.000 tons of steel provided the framework for the towers and walkways. This was then clad in Cornish granite and Portland stone, both to protect the underlying steelwork and to provide the bridge with an unparalleled aesthetic appearance. The bridge was designed by H. Jone in collaboration with J.W. Barry. Westminster Palace or Houses of Parliament is an enormous structure of Neo-Gothic design and was built in the period 1840-1860. Designed by Sir Charles Barry, it replaced an aggregation of ancient buildings almost completely destroyed by fire in 1834. At the Northern end rises the Clock Tower, a great symbol of London with the famous clock Big Ben, and 96m (316ft) high itself. The name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock tower itself, but to the thirteen-ton bell hung within. It was named for Sir Benjamin Hall, commissioner of works when the bell was installed in 1856. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands.

In the series world famous ancient architecture: Moai Statues, Easter Island. Located in the South Pacific between Chile and Tahiti, Easter Island is one of the most isolated inhabited islands in the world. It is unclear why the Eastern Islanders – believed to be descending from seafaring Polynesians who arrived some 1200 years ago -  turned to statue construction of so called Moai on such a massive scale. Over one thousand large Moai have been carved. Through extensive deforestation, the society came to a hard fall. A jewel of an island floating in an endless sea. A seemingly never ending supply of raw materials. Technological advancement. Population. Growth. Then depletion of resources followed by war. Collapse. A lesson for mankind to be learned?

In the series world famous architecture: Taj Mahal, Agra, India. Taj Mahal means "Crown Palace" and is in fact the most well preserved and architecturally beautiful tomb in the world. It was built in 1631 by the fifth Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan in memory of his second wife, Mumtaz Mahal, a Muslim Persian princess. Construction was completed 22 years later. Twenty thousand people were deployed to work on it. The material was brought in from all over India and central Asia and it took a fleet of 1000 elephants to transport it to the site. The dome is made of white marble, but the tomb is set against the plain across the river and it is this background that works its magic of colours that, through their reflection, change the view of the Taj. It is considered India’s most famous architectural wonder and is best described by the English poet, Sir Edwin Arnold, as "Not a piece of architecture, as other buildings are, but the proud passions of an emperor’s love wrought in living stones." It was designed by the Iranian architect Istad Usa.

In the series world famous ancient architecture: Stonehenge, Amesbury, Wiltshire, England. Mystery. Grandeur. Fascination. Fear. This megalithic ruin known as Stonehenge, an ancient monument of huge stones has captured imaginations for centuries. Theories about who built it have included the Druids, Greeks, Phoenicians, and Atlanteans. Speculation on the reason why it was built range from human sacrifice to astronomy. Investigations over the last 100 years have revealed that Stonehenge was built in several stages from 2900 to 1800 BC. It seems to have been designed to allow for observation of astronomical phenomena. The so-called Sarsen Circle with its lintels is perhaps the most remarkable feature of Stonehenge in terms of design, precision stonework and engineering. The Sarsen Circle, about 33 metres (108 ft) in diameter, was originally comprised of 30 neatly trimmed upright sandstone blocks of which only 17 are now standing. How the stones were transported to the site at Stonehenge remains the subject of much speculation. Illustration by A. Dusée, 2001. Copyright PVH Carpet Tiles, Almere, The Netherlands.
