One common style is the Greek revival house. This style was popular around the 1820’s-1860’s. This was a time when architecture and the arts of the classical world were symbols of democracy. The Greek key appears quit often in this architecture design. New Orleans had also adapted the pediment trim around the windows or doors and full height porches with classical round columns or boxed piers.
Introduction For this question, I will call to mind buildings like the white house, the chamber of commerce, or some older courthouses. These are all examples of Greek influence on modern architecture. As well as our culture in some ways. Why Do you think the architect(s) chose to copy classical style? I can not with utter certainty say why they chose Greek architecture as the foundation for their work.
Name Professor Course Date Book Review: Everyday Life in Early America The book ‘Everyday Life in Early America’ by David Hawke provides a comprehensive account of the history of early settlers in America. It maintains that the geographic concept including the physical environment is a chief factor that influences the behavior of individuals.

The Early Modern Period began in the late 15th century through the 18th century. The early modern period follows the late Middle Ages of the post-classic era. The period witnessed the exploration and colonization of the Americas. It also experienced the rise of sustained contacts between previously isolated parts of the globe.

In Colonial America, during the 1600’s and 1700’s, there were religious, political and geographical changes which resulted in democratic and undemocratic changes. Religion had a big impact on Colonial America. Maryland had to pass the Act of Toleration because too many people were not able to exercise their religion freely. (document 1) The act stated that nobody in Maryland who exercises their religion will be embarrassed and is free to do so willingly, however this act only applied to Christians.

One of the most impacting organizations in social welfare was the settlement house. Most of them were large buildings in crowded immigrant neighborhoods where workers provided helpful services for people. Settlements aimed for their ultimate goal to be to preserve human values in a rapidly industrializing age. Every worker’s goal was to teach middle class values to the poor. They wanted to help the immigrants adjust to their new way of life.
Colonial Williamsburg is one of the oldest living museum in history. From the streets of Duke of Gloucester St. to S England Street this has many re-constructed buildings to be as accurate as possible. But among all the wondrous buildings there is one that stands out better than all the rest, “The Capitol Building”. It was the first representative government to vote for a constitution, the rules they made back then shaped what we know today, and also it shows how much government and laws have changed today. These are all reasons for why I think that this building unquestionably deserves the 2016 commemorative
The antebellum period in America was a time of conflict as the nation was trying to divide from English rule. Loyal british soldiers showed fidelity and honorable amounts of courage when they protected and defended the colonies as champions. Their prowess seemed far more superior and they seemed auspicious compared to their adversary who, in the end, would acquiesce and recompense the damages, which is good business acumen in my opinion. In the americas, instead of truthful and courteous loyalists, British troops were met with abhorring and abrasive people who wanted to be separated from the king’s rule, using such terrible methods from throwing acrid foods and rocks at them, or picking fights, which would end up being a terrible mistake.
In Colonial Williamsburg there are many significant architectures. Buildings such as the Bruton Parish Church, Governor’s Palace, the Capitol, and the Magazine all had a big contribution in Virginia's history. Each building deserves a commemorative coin, but only one can be selected. By studying all the four structures, the one most deserving of a commemorative coin is the Magazine. During the Colonial times, the Magazine had many significant effects.
The Capitol in Williamsburg was a very important building in Colonial times. It was used as a, law school, a hospital, a court, a meeting place, and an academy. Patrick Henry gave his Caesar-Brutus speech there as well. The Capitol was the place where Virginia spoke for American Independence. A vote to speak for independence also took place here.

Delirious New York – Rem Koolhaas In a celebration of New York, Koolhaas’s delirious New York depicts the city as a metaphor for the incredible diversity in human behavior. He suggests that the city holds infinite possibilities for material and fictional activities and events and that the ‘culture of congestion’ is ultimately the essence of a metropolitan lifestyle. He pays homage to Coney Island, "the laboratory", highlighting the vital role it played in the building philosophies that would emerge later in Manhattan.
Their architectural style choices exhibit a strong medieval heritage. The first permanent buildings utilized post and beam construction and farmhouses. These constructions were lacking in any architectural frills due to the Puritan denunciation of frivolous things. The bedrooms were typically on the second or third floor and the ground floor typically had a hall and parlor. A hall was a large living place not like the hallways we are used to.
Mankind has always faced many natural obstacles, one of them being the harsh elements of the weather. In order to protect themselves, humans began to build shelters to keep warm and survive. This acted as the roots that gave rise to the industry of architecture. As time has passed and societies have come and gone, the advancements in architecture have continued to grow, but never again has there been a time more influential and lasting on architecture than the era of the Greeks and Romans. Their architectural achievements revolutionized modern architecture in a way that is still being used to this day.
