Question Description

I have a 2800-word essay and the title is 'To what extent is early Greek temple architecture down to 480 BC experimental? (Note that the title only mentions temple architecture)'. 

Any suggestions of how 'experimental' be understand or how to organize the essay is welcomed.

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Theres two main guidlines here . First the reintroduction of stone to temple building in the Archaic period from wood in the early Archaic which totally changed the rules . Second and most important the constant changes that occured after the introduction of stone such as  the essential elements and forms of each temple, such as the number of columns and of column rows .  

As experimental the author means the numerous attempts to harmonise all architectual elements : from bulky structures to aesthetic excellence and from simple experimentation (meaning executing ideas that came to mind and might be good to preplanned strict mathematical models for the construction) 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
