Panathenaic
Procession
This route was used by the citizens of Athens every day of their lives for
a multiplicity of purposes.
Its use must always have raised association with the brilliant & beautiful
procession all of them had witnessed since childhood.
From the time of its first beginning in archaic days, the panathenaic
procession & the sensations of those taking part in it gave the central
theme to the development of Athens.
There was the simplicity of the single central movement system through
the city..there was the understanding of value of memory & of response
to forms.
Panathenaic procession was the central organizing force in the
Architectural & Planning development of Athens….

Hippodamus & Miletus….
In the later part of 5th century B.C., Hippodamus, an architect from
Miletus, advocated an outstanding theory in the history of town
planning by applying GRID IRON pattern of road layout.
This system was introduced
to rebuilt the Greek cities
which were destructed by
the Persian invasion.
For laying out the perpendicular
roads, individual buildings were
made the common denominator
& the functions of the buildings
were given importance.
The rough topography of Greek cities lead to creation of steps on the
roads, which did not create much problems as most of the movement
were on foot..
Map of Miletus….
During the Hellenistic period, many public buildings were
added…ODEION, TREASURY, LIBRARY, PRISON…were added to
AGORA, BATHS, STADIA…
