The White House, The Capitol Building, The Lincoln Memorial, all these things have been affected by ancient Roman architecture. This ancient Roman architecture came to be around the time period of the Pax Romana in the Roman Empire. It was a time of great wealth and prosperity for the empire which brought it into a time of a sort of golden age for architecture. This type of architecture was influenced by the ancient Greeks, but it took their ideas and transformed them to better advantage their own empire. These ideas and works are still being used today in our society in some of the most influential buildings of our time.
Architecture has power, gives hegemony, and empowers its people. It comes to no surprise that Rome is considered the more powerful cities in the world because its architecture reveals the most about its reign. Rome is most known for their architectural designs much of which had influences from Greek culture. They were enthused by their Etruscan neighbors that guided them to develop knowledge that became essential in creating the design works that they utilized for future art works (Trueman). Given their new found knowledge and influences from Greek and Phoenician cultures they were able to implement some ideas into their own stately figures that reflect their lifestyle.
Throughout the Republic of Rome, advances were made in complexity and design alongside the introductions to new cultures during Rome’s conquests. These conquests gave Rome the wealth and inspiration needed to create its massive buildings.

Some of the world's most famous buildings were built by Rome or influenced by it (Bernard 66). With knowledge borrowed from the Greeks, Rome made impressive architectural achievements, these were namely major attributes of buildings, colossal structures, and a legacy that would influence later buildings (Cornell and Matthews 11). The Romans succeeded in building some of the most architecturally sound buildings of ancient times.
The Timurids excelled in the realm of architecture and created new innovating architecture. Timur showed his power and conquer through the architecture he commissioned. The melon domes symbolize his rule and was also adopted in funeral architecture. The polychromy tile work on the melon domes as well as the exterior of buildings made them the most elite and modern monuments of its time.
Rome was able to go from the small Italian city to the conquering empire that it is known for today through strong leadership and consistent warfare.
