Ancient Greek architecture came from the Greek-speaking people (Hellenic people) whose culture flourished on the Greek mainland, the Aegean Islands, and in colonies in Anatolia and Italy for a period from about 900 BC until the 1st century AD. It took a long walk-through and in different historical periods it embraced different characteristics. An important role played economic and social factors, which altogether brought cities in V-II centuries BC to blooming.

The Greek word for the family or household, oikos, is also the name for the house. Houses followed several different types. It is probable that many of the earliest houses were simple structures of two rooms, with an open porch or pronaos, above which rose a low-pitched gable or pediment.

The most famous temple of Ancient Greece is the Parthenon located on the Acropolis in the city of Athens, built between 447-432 BC on the project designed by Iktinos (Ictino) and Callicrate. The origin of the Parthenon's name is from the Greek word παρθενών (parthenon), which referred to the "unmarried women's apartments" in a house. To the Athenians who built it, the Parthenon, and other Periclean monuments of the Acropolis, were seen fundamentally as a celebration of Hellenic victory over the Persian invaders and as a thanksgiving to the gods for that victory. It was dedicated to the goddess Athena. The practical purpose of the Parthenon was to serve as the city treasury.
