Classical Architecture In Contemporary Los Angeles

ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE CHOICES

This paper assignment asks you to write a comparison between an Ancient Greek/Roman building and a building in Los Angeles that has been inspired by the Ancient Greek/Roman architectural tradition. Write a 2-3 page paper, double-spaced, 1 inch margins, Times New Roman font. You do not need to do outside research. Links with information are provided below.

Choose one Ancient Greek or Ancient Roman building from the list below and pair it with one building in Los Angeles. Then write a compare and contrast essay. How are the buildings similar?  How are they different?  Be sure to discuss function.  How is each building used?  Who uses it? What are the materials?  Architectural details? Organization of the building?

As with the other compare and contrast essays, you must discuss the works together. So if you talk about the material of one building, you need to talk about the material of the other building right after.
