different project of Pantheon Moscow/ 1953

Wikipťdia :
The Pantheon (Russian: Пантеон), officially also called the Monument to the Eternal Glory of the Great People of the Soviet Land (Памятник вечной славы великих людей Советской страны), was a project to construct a monumental memorial tomb in Moscow, Soviet Union. The tomb was planned to serve as the final resting place for prominent Communist figures along with the remains of Communists who had been buried at the Kremlin Wall Necropolis. According to the plan, Vladimir Lenin's embalmed body would be transferred from Lenin's Mausoleum to the new Pantheon.






Unfortunately I do not know the names of architects.
If anyone knows...

Galleria Colonna would have been amazing for Rome! Too bad such a Milano/Napoli like gallery wasn't built. What's the reasons? Financial issues? Could anyone provide more information or links? Grazie!

Galleria Colonna was built, but another design was chosen. It looks like this today:

And like this on the inside:

I believe the other design simply lost the architectural competition for the building. Which I think it is a shame. Allthough the current building is pretty nice (and very monumental if you are close to it), I feel the other design would have been more unique and it would also have contributed to the skyline. There were other designs too:

This one which was posted a few pages back:


And these two which I have been unable to find in any larger sizes:

^ Well I'm aware of the building (thanks to Wiki), but I was referring to the grandezza of the Milan and Napoli designs that the one in Rome is totally lacking! The other design would have been much more imposing.

Too bad I didn't visit this gallery though, I've been to Rome twice but wasn't aware of it at all.

The "Hungarian Pantheon" concept by IstvŠn Medgyaszay, 1903. He won 5 European prizes for this plan.

"In 1902 Medgyaszay completed plans for a National Pantheon containing the remains of Hungary's kings, to be built on the top of Gellťrthegy (St. Gerard's Hill). The massing of the Pantheon is based on Indian temple architecture but details rely on the kind of Hungarian folk architecture that suggests eastern motifs while containing national symbols."

Ok. I do think I have to withdrew my earlier comment though as I found this picture which is labelled "New Galleria Colonna, 1895."


Which is a lot earlier than when the current building was built and it suggest that it was then decided to be final design. I have found no information about why it was not built that way, so I can only speculate. Perhaps the fact that it would be visible on Romes historic skyline made the authorities/public negative of it? The building mass relative to the size of the dome is also a lot smaller on this project than the one in Milan and Naples, so perhaps this made it economically unfeasible?

I do wonder whether there were pans for similar Gallerias in other cities. The Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan is said to have inspired a boom of galleria buidling around Italy, and many cities do have them, but only Naples have one that looks similar and equally grand as the one in Milan. And I don't think Palermo got anything at all. I've tried searching to see if I could find any designs, but I have not found anything so far.

Did you visit the Galleria Sciarra in Rome? It's a lot smaller, but I think it is much more beautiful. At least on the inside.

Actually I have sort of found another Galleria plan, which is this one intended to be built in Florence.


It was called Galleria Mussolini and was designed by Adolfo CoppedŤ. The plans caused a outrage due to amount of historic buildings that had to be demolished. I'm not completely sure, but I think this could a view of Coppedťs design for part of the dome.


Taken from the cover of a catalogue of his work.

This temple design by Quinlan Terry. It was to be built in Iran, but the Iranina Revolution of 1979 put an end to it.

…tienne-Louis Boullťe / 1781

Basilica of the project to the Supreme Being called Metropolis.






Note the cross in the center of the smoke of the altar.
"... Metropolis proposes an ideal temple for a new worship. Here, no high altar, no secondary chapels. The religious scenes represented in the drawings of the inside of the metropolis answer precise parties of the catholic liturgical calendar. They are however treated as ceremonies in the classic art. It is celebrations of a timeless divine worship in which the reference to the Cross is only of use as landmark to the spectator." -BNF
rough translation, sorry.

Design for a "Italian Castle" by Robert Adam, late 18th century. I assume it was intended to be built somewhere in the UK given the architect and the Italian part was only used to indicate the style of the building.

Here some good examples of 19th C. Gallerias scattered around Italy.

Galleria Mazzini, Genova, 2

Galleri Arnaboldi, Pavia (my hometown), also called Cupola Arnaboldi 2

Galleria San Federico, Torino,
2

Galleria Subalpina, Torino, probably the poshest 2

The quite simple -but effective- Galleria Matteotti, Mestre (Mainland Venice), 2

Galleria Acquaderni, Bologna partly located in the naves of a former Church, 2

Galleria Meravigli, Milano

Southwards then, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele III, Messina, 2

Andrea Palladios design for the reconstruction of the Doge's Palace in Venice after a fire in 1577. I prefer the current one.

Galro, you are truly an expert in architecture and possess very deep knowledge in this sphere. Do you work in an archive? Or you must be an architect? Or is it just your hobby?
