Pakkanen, Jari
Classical Greek Architectural Design. A Quantitative Approach
Foundation of the Finnish Institute at Athens
Papers and Monographs of the Finnish Institute at Athens XVIII
Athens 2013, 127 pp.


The aim of this book is to change the prevalent paradigm in Greek architectural design studies: detecting patterns in a set of measurements is to a high degree a statistical question and scholars who ignore this fact risk confusing the discussion rather than clarifying it. The foundations on which Greek architectural design analyses are built are not necessarily as stable as is often taken for granted. Recognising complex patterns in data sets requires expertise both in the field of the study in question and quantitative methods. The emphasis of this monograph is on methodology.
