Aztec Architecture

How did the Aztecs build their homes and temples?

“Aztec architecture was simple and elegant, bold and powerful, and it mixed colors and symbols that helped created a unique style”. That means the Aztecs could build there homes quickly. I think it took a longer amount of time. But many people where interested in their temple.” Aztec architecture relied heavily on cosmology, astronomy and religion”.

I learned that the Aztecs thought of their architecture very valuable. They built temples over other temples and there temples like mountains because they thought that the mountains protected their houses from the rain and their houses were made of logs. Tenochtitlan was there biggest city which had the best architecture.
