Doric and Ionic columns
Roofs crammed with earth
"Ship", the most frequent noun in Homer's Iliad
Columns as oars
First three chapters
“the columns had a nautical significance (...); the dipteral colonnades around the naos, (...) are like a double row of oars propelling a ship”. (Hahn, p. 87).
I can’t read this book, by its thesis agrees with my own ideas: the relations between nautics, architecture and philosophy. Actually, I think that buildings made with overturned boats, the first temples, functioned as an image of the universe for the first philosophers, with the hull as a model of the starry sky.
