سبک پارسی (معماری ایرانی)

(Wikipedia) - Parsian style   (Redirected from Parsian style (Iranian architecture))

The "Parsian style" (New Persian:شیوه معماری پارسی) is a style of architecture ("sabk") when categorizing the history of Persian/Iranian architectural development. Although the Median and Achaemenid architecture fall under this classification, the pre-Achaemenid architecture is also studied as a sub-class of this category.

This style of architecture flourished from eighth century B.C.E. from the time of the Median Empire, through the Achaemenid empire, to the arrival of Alexander III of Macedonia in the third century B.C.E.
