Pronounced: uh-GRATE, verb
Note: I keep seeing “aggregate” when I see this word, and so I guessed the wrong meaning
The word hypaethral means
- having a roofless central space
- open to the sky
The ancient Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius used the Latin word hypaethrus to describe temples in which the cella (the part of the template hosing an image of the deity) was wholly or partially uncovered. The word was crafted from Greek hypo- (under or beneath) and aithēr (air or heaven).
This word came into English in the late 1700s
