Chapter I
I. Intoduction

Architecture is the arts and science of designing and constructing buildings. The architect is responsible for the over all design of a building, in which standards of artistic taste are closely related to the functional requirements of each particular piece of construction. After Egyptian Architecture in Mesopotamia of building Pyramids, Roman Architecture came next to Greek Architecture. These are the early times the first Architects and Engineers occurred. The buildings of Greeks between the 7th and the 4th centuries B.C. were extremely plain but with the extreme stress on ornament and decoration. The Romans never equalled the artistic standards of the Greeks, but the put architecture to a much greater rance of uses. Except for the several things in common, Greek Architecture and Roman Architecture are different in many ways. *

* Statement of the Problem

This study aimed to share the facts and information in regards with the similarities and differences between Greek Arcitecture and Roman Architecture and also to satisfy the students, the teachers, the board examiners, as well as proffesionals with the course field. S/y 2012-2013 Specifically, this study sought to answer the following research questions: 1. How does history of a particular place greatly affect its architecture through out the present times? 2. How does social life affect industrialization and modernation of a country? 3. What are the materials made by Greeks and Romans on their building on those early times? 4. Which is better prefered of the two Architectural eras? The Greek Architerture or the Roman architecture? 5. How Filipino architects do apply the Greek and Roman architecture? * Significance of the Study

This study will contribute to the improvement of education in architecture not only in this school but also in other universities nationally. I hope that this research will encourage the faculty administration and also the teachers to be drawn to this study– a student-centred approach – and to adapt its learnings that will benefit the students. The outcomes to be considered consist of the following: the improvement of students’ knowlegde in early Architecture; development of a positive attitude towards designing considering buildings function like what the early constructors did; increase in students’ artistic and academic competencies to meet design demands; enhancing students’ creative thinking including design innovation; and the level of interaction and cooperation that was engendered between students and teachers.

This study was conducted and deemed important to the following entities: 1. Researches
Architecture may sound like a 9 to 5 office job, but its not. It’s a lot more than that. Even as a student of Architecture, you get to work on real-life problems of designing functional buildings. If you like to hit the road every now and then, you’re in for some luck. In this profession, you get to travel a lot. You have to put your feet on the ground, and visit construction sites. 2. Teachers

 Architecture is a very high paying field. Once you get through the course and pass out with good grades, you’d be pursued by large firms looking for fresh talent and new ideas. And compared to most other fields, Architects make a lot more money.  3. Students

A course in Architecture is a lot of fun. Unlike traditional colleges where you must slog yourself in study halls and libraries, reading and writing all the time, a course in Architecture gives you the liberty to use the right side of your brain, the creative part. You get a lot of opportunities to showcase your creativity and ingenuity while designing structures. The...
