23. Egypt: Art And Architecture
The architecture was based upon perpendicular structures and inclined planes sincethere was no structural assistance except the strength and The pyramids.
Egypt: Art and Architecture
    The great architectural achievements of the past are built of stone. Stone quarries supplied the large blocks of granite, limestone, and sandstone that were used for building temples and tombs. Architects planned carefully as building was done without mortar, so the stones had to fit precisely together. Only pillars were used to sustain short stone supports. At the temple of Karnak, a ramp of adobe brick can be seen leading to the top of the temple wall. Such ramps were used to allow workmen to carry stones to the top of structure and allow artists to decorate the tops of walls and pillars. Pillars were built in the same way. As height was added, the ground was raised. When the top of the pillar was completed, the artists would decorate from the top down, removing ramp sand as they went along. As soon as a pharaoh was named, construction on his tomb was begun. Tomb building continued throughout his life and stopped only on the day on which he died. As a result, some tombs are very large and finely decorated, while other tombs, like that of King Tutankhamun, are small because he ruled as a pharaoh for such a short time. The architecture was based upon perpendicular structures and inclined planes since there was no structural assistance except the strength and balance of the structure itself. For this reason, the square and the plumb-line were very important tools.

24. Pyramids
This Pyramid Web Project poorly represents a prospectus for a book PYRAMIDDESIGN architecture, Art, Form, and Power . Pyramid architecture.
Pyramids are Under Construction!
I'm interested in the pyramid as a modern architectural form, and more generally as an archetype. I hope this project will convince you of its universal appeal. This Pyramid Web Project poorly represents a prospectus for a book: PYRAMID DESIGN: Architecture, Art, Form, and Power . The book will include construction details, design decisions, descriptions of each pyramid, anecdotes, profiles of architects, an so on. It will explore pyramid structures from residential to massive scales. The book will also include a applications of the pyramid form to such things as stoves, awards, candles, and graphic elements. There will be a mathematical treatment of the pyramid, and a bit on its use as a theme in paintings and sculptural works I'm may not expand or keep the web pages up-to-date during the development of the book, although I may add some timely elements.
Recent Development
The Learning Channel aired Understanding: Pyramids in January, 2001. It was a bit of a dissapointment. They had some good material but the editing was poor, and they didn't have good judgement about what to include or emphasize, in my opinion. Too much like a bad Dorderling-Kinderly book. Ron Hexum was likewise chagrined. Featured in the program was two pyramid homes in Idaho designed and built by Architect Ron Hexum . But not a virtual walk through of one of his latest design.

Pyramids have been built by different peoples at various times in history. Probably the best-known pyramids are those of ancient Egypt, which were built to protect the tombs of rulers or other important persons. Pyramids were also built as platforms for temples by pre-Columbian civilizations in Central and South America. Still other pyramids exist in Sudan, Southwest Asia, and Greece. In the 26th century

    The ancient Egyptians were the first to use mathematics in art. It seems almost certain that they ascribed magical properties to the golden section (golden ratio, divine proportion, phi) and used in the design of their great pyramids.
    pyramids, Giza If we take a cross section of the Great Pyramid , we get a right triangle, the so-called Egyptian Triangle. The ratio of the slant height of the pyramid (hypotenuse of the triangle) to the distance from ground center (half the base dimension) is 1.61804 ... which differs from phi by only one unit in the fifth decimal place. If we let the base dimension be 2 units, then the sides of the right triangle are in the proportion 1:sqrt(phi):phi and the pyramid has a height of sqrt(phi). Visit the web page Cairo and the Pyramids of Giza for more details.

    The Pyramids of Giza The pyramids of Giza, are perhaps the only true rival to the Great Sphinx , when one thinks about Ancient Egypt and it's architecture. The valley of Giza with it's wonderful monuments, is truly a marvel of architectural prowess. The three Pyramids, consist of The Great Pyramid of Khufu , The Pyramid of Kafhre and The Pyramid of Menkaura. Each Pyramid is a tomb to a different King of Egypt. All three pyramids were built during the Third and Fourth Dynasty, and were monumental undertakings of the king and the kings sons. The Pyramid of Khufu has a base which covers roughly a nine acre area (roughly 392,040 square feet). The pyramid of Menkaura, unlike the other pyramids, had one tier of it's base covered in granite. The pyramid of Khafre, had a two tier base encased in granite. Unfortunately like many of the great Kings of the Old Kingdom of Egypt, the Pyramid of Menkaura, Khufu, and Kafhre were not finished in the time of the end of the Kings reign. In the case of Menkaura, the king died before it's construction was completed. The monuments of Giza and the entire Giza valley stand as a marvelous reminder of the skill executed in the creation of the pyramids, and are truly fabulous to see.

    Maya Architecture The Mayan civilization had elaborate buildings. These buildings were not made of stone or wood.They were built with concrete! Concrete is an important building material still used today. The Mayans built pyramids as monuments to their gods and leaders. Some of the pyramids were 200 feet high. The tops of the Mayan pyramids are not pointed like the Egyptian pyramids. Instead they are flat. The rulers and leaders would climb the pyramids and sit upon the flat tops. Mayans also built palaces for the rulers. The pyramids and palaces were often arranged around a central court or garden.

    Golden Ratio and Architecture The Golden Rectangle is a unique and a very important shape in mathematics. The Golden Rectangle appears in nature, music, and is also often used in art and architecture. The special property of the Golden Rectangle is that the ratio of its length to the width equals to approximately 1.618:
    The Golden Rectangle has been discovered, admired and used since ancient times. The reason for the golden rectangle's charm is that it is considered to be one of the most pleasing shapes to look at. Our human eye perceives the golden rectangle as an especially beautiful geometric form.
    Example 1: Ancient Egyptians, Mesopotamians and Greeks were aware of the beauty of the Golden Rectangle and used it to create many different buildings. One of the most famous and beautiful buildings, built in ancient Greece on the Acropolis, is called the Parthenon. It was created about 2500 years ago.
    The Parthenon - Ancient Greek Temple.Built in 5th century B.C. by three architects: Iktinus, Callicrates and Phidias.(The symbol for golden ratio is the Greek letter , named after the sculptor Phidias)
    Golden Ratio appears in several places in the design of the Parthenon. The dimensions of the front of the temple form a perfect golden rectangle, as shown on the diagram above. Also, the spaces between the columns are in proportion to the golden ratio. The golden rectangles can be seen in almost all exterior dimensions of this great masterpiece.

    COLORU NEW!!! The Egyptian Pyramids
    The Great Pyramid Introduction The Step Pyramid is the first known monumental structure made of stone anywhere in the world. The Step Pyramid Complex of Djoser (also spelled Zozer) was built during the Third Dynasty (ca. 2800 B.C.) ) for King Djoser and its construction was overseen by his vizier Imhotep. The Step Pyramid is located in what is now Saqqara, Egypt, an immense necropolis (cemetery) just south of Cairo and west of the ancient city of Memphis. It was used as a burial ground for thousands of years. As its name suggests, the Step Pyramid is a series of six levels of stone decreasing in size as they ascend to about 200 feet/60 meters in height. Until this time, mastabas had been the principal form of pyramid architecture. A mastaba (Arabic for "bench") is a low rectangular structure which was built over a shaft which descended to a burial location. The Step Pyramid originally began as a mastaba, and it may have been visualized as a series of mastaba shapes, decreasing in size, stacked one on top of another. The four sides of the mastaba were aligned to the compass points through observation of the heavens.
