The Pantheon

118-128AD

Roman temple built by Marcus Agrippa

Rebuilt by Emperor Hadrian around 126 AD

Circular building with Corinthian portico

Key feature: oculus – the circular hole in the middle of the coffered, concrete dome – that allows a mesmerising disk of light to rotate around the inner dome (when the sun shines of course)
