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.
Thank you so much for your clarification. It is really helpful!
So is it a kind of introduction of the early development process of the Greek temples? If so, how can I answer the 'to what extent' question? I think it is difficult to categorize the extent. Am I right?
I have already lent some books about Greek architecture from library, but they are all very thick and too detailed, and I don't know how to find useful items for bibliography from those books and internet. Do you have some suggestions?
