The use of columns and of an entablature and pediment originates from Greco-Roman architecture. The entablature is a block of stone (architrave) placed horizontally on top of the columns and can include a wide decorative panel called frieze and a cornice, which is another decorative element which forms the top of the entablature and protrudes from the rest. The pediment is the triangular space above the entablature which supports a sloped roof. This is the structure of the extension at the centre of the front of the White House. At the back of the White House, the semi-circular extension (the South Portico) is supported by columns and its shape is that of the exedra of Greco-Roman architecture.
