Modern domes are built in reinforced concrete or structural steel frame, the ancient ones was built in stone. Pantheon dome is the largest unreinforced solid concrete dome in the world till present.

It is an amazing structure and thus far under appreciated by most, It has only been a short since it was constructed, hopefully it will get the recognition it deserves.

Unlike Malls, Hotels and other "stuff" religious buildings, the older they are, the most famous they are. Although it is illegal for non-Muslims to enter mosques in the United Arab Emirates, this mosque will be an exception. The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority announced that tours of the mosques will be given to both Muslims and non-Muslims beginning in mid-March 2008 in order to promote cultural and religious understanding.



The Mausoleum of the Samanids, Bukhara, Uzbekistan, ca. 914-43.

St. Peter's Basilica



My local favorite, the Louisiana Superdome. They are currently replacing the aluminum cladding... should look awesome when completed.
