Erected by the ancient Greeks as a temple to Athena, the Parthenon has served as a church, a fortress, an ammunition dump, and the model for countless banks, courthouses, and museums across the world. It has been shot at, exploded, set on fire, rocked by earthquakes, looted for its magnificent sculptures, and subjected to restorations that have been termed catastrophic. Surprisingly, despite much abuse and renown as an icon of Western civilization, the question of how the Parthenon was built has been largely ignored until recently.

Der Parthenon gilt seit fast 2.500 Jahren als Inbegriff der Schönheit und Perfektion. Er wurde auf der Athener Akropolis zu Ehren der Stadtgöttin Pallas Athene als Dank für die Rettung Athens vor den Persern errichtet. Im Laufe seiner Geschichte wurde das Gebäude beschossen, in Flammen gesetzt, von Erdbeben erschüttert, seiner Skulpturen beraubt und durch katastrophale Renovierungen entstellt.

Dominating the skyline of Athens is the ancient Acropolis – once the center of Greek civilization. At the heart of the Acropolis was the Temple of the Parthenon. Built in the 5th century BC, it represents the pinnacle of Greek temple building practices and established the Athenians as masters of architectural design. But how did the ancient Greeks construct it? The program explores the building techniques and methods of ancient Greeks, from the quarrying of huge blocks of marble in the mountains surrounding Athens, to the intricate carving of the magnificent sculptures which adorned the Parthenon. The world's leading experts talk about the design of the temple and reveal the purpose behind its construction. The program also reveals evidence of a colossal sculpture that once stood at the center of the Parthenon and explores how it may have determined the design of the entire building.
