The Theatre of Pompey

The Theatre of Pompey



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2mOd7lIGOE

Dedicated in 55BC, and built by Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, otherwise known as Pompey the Great (CN·POMPEIVS·CN·F·SEX·N·MAGNVS) just outside the city walls of ancient Rome.

The largest theatre ever constructed, itself based on the Hellenistic theatres of ancient Greece, the Theatre of Pompey is the first theatre of this exact design. While theatre had existed for hundreds of years prior to this theatre, it was the innovative use of the arch and the invention of Roman concrete that allowed this theatre to be built on the flat land of the Campus Martius (Field of Mars). A labyrinth of vaulted rooms beneath the seating on each level were connected by a series of staircases that created an organised layout for patrons to find their seating. A system still used in stadiums today.

WOO HOO!

There is finaly an opensource 3D model of the Theatre of Pompey!
http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehou...99&prevstart=0

It was uploaded in late May of 2010 and has a few unique design elements that are accurate but I haven't seen on the current CGI work. However to be fair to the work of James Packer and John Burge (Pompey Project) their work is not published in it's entirety. Before This new model was made available only the theatron version was available which I belive is what is seen on the Ancient Rome layer on Google Earth and is on the SecondLife virtual world site.

The reconstruction is the work of L.VII.C (Google username) : Lasha Tskhondia. Very prolific work on ancient Roman buildings on that site. Some really great work. Here are some screen caps.
