GREEK CITIES

TRADITIONAL POLIS
Houses are distributed throughout the city without forming neighborhoods by strains or social classes. The streets often have an irregular layout. In a polis there are 3 zones:
– The sacred area, located in the acropolis
– Public areas, dedicated to commerce, theater (agora)
– Private areas, occupied by houses

THE HELENISTIC CITIES
The different elements that compose them appear distributed rationally, thanks to the contribution of Hipódamos de Mileto, to whom the use of the orthogonal plane is due.
The streets are drawn at right angles, with a network of apples and arranged in even squares.
The civil and religious areas do not condition the rest of the elements, but they adapt to the network, as in the city of Miletus.
