    Description:

    A monumental complex of buildings was also begun around the spring of Nemausus in the Augustan period. This included a collecting pool, nymphaeum and temple precinct. The sanctuary buildings were enclosed to east, south and west by a large portico. Adjoining the west portico is the “Temple of Diana”, a building unlikely to have been a temple, although its unusual character makes its purpose uncertain. The façade, with two large niches on either side of the entrance steps, fronts a c…

    Description:

    The other wall is behind, perpendicular, forming the corner.

    Outside the city, two walls of the “Temple of Janus” (2nd century AD) stand 24 m high. It was a temple of Romano-Celtic type, having a square central cella of petit appareil (a facing of courses of small squared blocks of stone) with three windows on each side and a surrounding ambulatory. Aerial photography in 1976 detected adjacent buildings of the rural sanctuary, including a theatre.

    Description:

    It was built ca. 19-16 BCE by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, who was also the original patron of the Pantheon in Rome. The Maison Carrée is a perfect example of Vitruvian architecture in its most classical mode. Raised on a 2.85 m high podium, the temple dominated the forum of the Roman city, forming a rectangle almost twice as long as it is wide, measuring 26.42 m by 13.54 m. The façade is dominated by a deep portico or pronaos almost a third of the building’s length. It is a pseudoperipteral…

    Description:

    On an island in the artificial ‘river’ stands the Temple de l'Amour, built in 1778 by Mique, with Joseph Deschamps (ca. 1743-1788), commissioned by Marie-Antoinette.

    In 1661, when Louis XIV began to enlarge the château of Versailles, the surrounding grounds were in a rudimentary state. The King acquired further land (at the end of his reign the estate extended over 2473 ha, now reduced to 815 ha) and had gardens designed and laid out by André Le Nôtre which would harmonize with L…

    Description:

    The Exposition of 1889 was also notable for its collection of 48 buildings illustrating the history of human habitation, a display organized by Charles Garnier, architect of the Paris Opéra. (Unclear whether this exhibit was within the Egyptian House or elsewhere.)

    Organized as a centennial celebration of the French Revolution, this was perhaps more important as a showcase of engineering technology than any other international exhibition of the 19th century. It boasted not only the highest s…
