Located on a hill, on the open area of the landscape, the simplest of a Greek temple is the templum in antis, a small rectangular structure. Designed by the AG ‘LesoSplaw’ team, in front of the cella, a small porch or pronaos was formed. With the protruding cella walls being the antae, the pronaos was linked to the cella by a door. To support the superstructure, two columns were placed between the fronts of the antae (in antis)using straw for the temple material. More images can be viewed after the break.
