Probably nothing new, not seen in this thread already, but can't help it.

St. Peters

Scale and the history is enough to make it my favorite. Have been 3 times in Rome and visited St Peters everytime.

The U.S Capitol Building is the best domed building in the U.S, and top 5 in the World. Its architecture is simply splendid. It has just the right dimensions. Not too tall, not too wide, just right. The columns, the leafing design, the 4 level wedding cake design.

But I think its symbolism may be more important than its design. I think no other dome in the world can conjure up such varied emotions across the political spectrum and in global politics. From patriotism, protest, hate, cynicism and hope in the prospects of progress through democracy. The politics that go through this building, the debates, the policies, the Presidential State of the Union speeches, carries a lot of weight that reverberates through the social, economic and political fabric of American life. To foreigners it may represent the successes of American leadership, to some it represents quite the opposite; the failures, setbacks and abuses of American power. In all I think the Capitol Dome captures all the glory and tribulations of democracy.
