Wikipedia

  1. Ionic order

    The Ionic order is one of the three canonic orders of classical architecture, the other two being the Doric and the Corinthian. There are two lesser orders: the Tuscan (a plainer Doric), and the rich variant of Corinthian called the composite order. Of the three classical canonic orders, the Corinthian order has the narrowest columns, followed by the Ionic order, with the Doric order having the widest columns. The Ionic capital is characterized by the use of volutes. The Ionic columns normally stand on a base which separates the shaft of the column from the stylobate or platform while the cap is usually enriched with egg-and-dart. The ancient architect and architectural historian Vitruvius associates the Ionic with feminine proportions (the Doric representing the masculine).

  1. ionic order

    The Ionic order is one of the three classical orders of ancient Greek architecture, the other two being the Doric and Corinthian orders. It is distinguished by its capital, which typically features spirally fluted columns and a base. The volutes, or ornamental spiral scrollwork, and the presence of moldings distinguish Ionic architecture from the more austere Doric order. The Ionic order originated in the cities of Ionia in Asia Minor during the 6th century BC, and it exhibits a higher degree of detail and elegance than its predecessors.
