 Design Theory: Doric Column Origins

 

The Doric Order of Columns is one of the three main Classical Greek orders of columns: Doric, Ionic and Corinthian. Doric uses an Attic Base however Greek Doric has no base.

 

Imperial Productions® offers Doric columns with Tapered or

Non-Tapered stylus or shafts.  The shafts can be Fluted or Smooth. Tapered shafts may have the correct taper or entasis (ie Taper 2/3rds down the stylus from the top. The last third is straight ending at the Attic Base which is used on all orders except Tuscan. 

 

Imperial Productions® offers Doric columns both load bearing and decorative to wrap a load bearing posts or stand alone engaged against a wall to enhance a building's facade. Add columns to legitimize any modern building.

 

Doric Load Bearing Columns support the Entablature of a Classical or Modern structure. Larger diameters can support up to 20,000 lbs without internal supports.

 

Decorative Doric columns can stand alone as a whole column or be specified to be split. Split Doric columns can be engaged or placed against a solid wall or specified to be split-to-wrap a load bearing steel or wood post.

 

Imperial Productions® has a vast selection of Doric Columns for commercial, residential, movie, garden and theatre applications.
