As I said in my post on Church Architecture it is really important to study architecture and learn the significant aspects of each period and how we are affected by them today. So I bring to you a series of posts on Ancient architecture. We will start with Egypt, but it is important to note the significance of design and architecture from the very beginning of time, from carvings on the cave walls and hieroglyphics, etc. These were the beginning stages of design and architecture! AMAZING!
Now we will start with Egypt. As with many other cultures and their histories, there are factors that made Egypt remarkable in its design, factors such as: the geography and natural resources (The Nile), religion, and their belief in kingdoms, dynasties, pharaohs and the afterlife. These factors played a huge role in the type of architecture and how these monuments were built and the significance of these buildings!
