Ancient Roman Architecture - an Abstract from the Greeks
The Roman architecture took inspiration from the ancient Greek architecture, and the buildings were slightly modified to create a new architectural style. The Colosseum, Circus Maximus, Hippodrome, Palatino Hill, the Pantheon, the Roman arch etc are few best examples of ancient Roman architecture. The skills of Romans in engineering are made evident through their invention of concrete that made the foundation of various styles of architecture like villas, temples, forts, great walls, roads and so on that changed the face of European architecture. Owing to the social and cultural changes in Rome, due to the enlargement of Roman empire, the structures started adapting these changes, showing evidences of a civilized world. The changing demands of the common population also owed to these makeovers.
