    Greek architecture displays great logic and order. Mathematics was used to create symmetry. The intent for these structures was for them to be places of high importance. They were used as religious grounds and temples, and to honor the Gods and provide a dwelling for them. There were three styles of Greek architecture: The Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian styles. All of these styles can be found somewhere today in modern building construction. Ancient Greek architects strove for precise and excellent workmanship which is a stand out point in Greek art in general. The formulas and equations invented have influenced the architecture of the past two millennia.
