Iconic Building of The Month – Rome and The Pantheon

Rome is home to many amazing buildings and the Pantheon is no exception. Like the city itself, it was not built in a day. Destroyed twice and rebuilt each time, the building started as a rectangular structure, which over time evolved into the gorgeous dome building seen today.


An inspiration to architects all over the world over the last 2,000 years, the Pantheon’s roof remains the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome

.
There is much debate between historians over which emperor and architects were responsible for the Pantheon’s design although it is known that this ‘Temple of the Gods’ was built around 126 AD.
