The Architectural History of the Column

Posted by Robert on 2/28/2014 to Architectural & Decor
Columns have been an integral element of architecture for thousands of years, with the earliest forms used for supporting roofs of small buildings during the Bronze Age.

While load-bearing was their initial function, the Greeks an Romans turned the column into an art form, adding sculpted floral patterns, patterns and flourishes for decorative purposes.
