To the classical world, architecture meant much more than the mere construction of buildings. It embodied notions of order, proportion and symmetry, and from the earliest times the aesthetic quality, architecture as an art, had priority. These elements continued in European architecture from the earliest Greek and Roman buildings, through various stages of evolution and transformation, into medieval and Renaissance times, and still make a contribution to the architectural debate of the present day.
