Mc donalds in the roman empire

  1. 1. Done by Cheong May Xin Zhao Jinqing Karthic Harish Ragupathy Nicholas Ang

  3. 3. This is what a Mc Donalds™ outlet would look like in ancient Rome. The only source of light at night were oil lamps as there were no electricity then. The coliseum building is a distinctive representation of Roman architecture.
  4. 4. <ul><li>The Doric column order, a preferred style of Greek mainland and southern Italy, including Sicily, was developed by the Dorians, one of the two divisions of Greek race. Out of the three main orders, the Doric, or now referred to as the Greek Doric order, is the oldest and plainest order. It is characterized by having twenty flutes that come to a point, a shaft with no base, and a plain, disk-like, capital. The height of the column is known to be approximately five and one half the width of the column. </li></ul>Example of a Doric column used in the building of the Colosseum
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Ionic column, or Ionic order, is historically classified by Italian architects, as one of three orders built by Greeks. The colosseum in Rome, Italy shows a simple Ionic column that has lasted since the original construction. </li></ul><ul><li>The Ionic column is far more complex in creation than its brother, the Doric column. Unlike the Doric column, the Ionic column has deeper facets and a slender shaft. The Ionic column is widely known for the pair of volutes (spiral looking horns, like those commonly seen on a ram) on either side of the capital. A simple, thin square belt that runs form the bottom of the capital and ends at the top of the base separates the flutes of the Ionic column. The base of the column is not without its distinguishing features of carved moldings and intricate figures that really enhance the elegance of this past column. In all, the Ionic column is a more elegant column than the Doric. </li></ul>Example of a Ionic column used in the building of the Colosseum
  6. 6. <ul><li>The last of the three columns in the Greek order is the Corinthian column. Similarities arise between the Ionic and Corinthian, however the distinguishing difference lies in the capital. The capital of the Corinthian structure is intricately carved with acanthus leaves, foliage, or different flowers. Unlike the Ionic the Corinthian capital flows upward to enhance the height of the column. The Corinthian column displays numerous rows of acanthus leaves and often times different foliage and flowers. The capital is a nice bell-shaped topping to a very beautiful column </li></ul>Example of a Corinthian column used in the building of the Colosseum
