When the ancient Egyptians built pyramids and other monumental structures, their design was rooted in their heritage, said David Krasner, a professor of architectural history at Indiana University who studies the ancient world.
It was a style of architecture that was built around a philosophy that focused on the relationship between the individual and the universe.
“That’s what we know as classical architecture, in that sense, the classical style,” Krasne said.
But with the rise of the modern architectural style, it’s not just about the individual, but also the relationship of the entire structure to the cosmos, Krasnes said.
A new study from the Indiana University School of Architecture finds that Egyptian architects built the most beautiful structures of all time, even before the rise to power of the Egyptian pharaohs.
The researchers found that the ancient architectural style was rooted not just in their beliefs but in their craftsmanship, as well.
The findings were published this week in the journal Architectural Record.
“The reason they built these monumental structures was because they knew they were the last people in the world who would build them,” Kvasner said.
Architectural Record What’s fascinating is how this style evolved over time, Kvasners said.
They were not always the greatest builders, but the Egyptians did build something.
“It’s a kind of an artifact of the era, and that’s something we’re still learning about,” Kasner said, adding that the findings show that the Egyptian architectural tradition continues to influence the modern world.
“The idea that Egypt was the last to do this is a little bit strange.
And yet, when you go to Egypt, you’ll see people who have gone back to Egypt and have done these great structures.”
Krasner said the research also shows that Egyptian art has influenced the way people see the world and the way they build things.
“Egypt is a beautiful country.
And it’s got an incredible tradition in architecture, and it’s also an amazing culture and an incredible place to live,” Klasner said .
“The fact that they can do this at such a high level in terms of detail and so much detail that you wouldn’t believe just tells you that their craft is so strong.”
