Ancient Architecture of the World - The History of Architecture - The Art History Archive | ancient world history cluster | Scoop.it

Even at an early stage mankind strove to build higher and higher. We build on a ridiculous scale and spend thousands or millions of hours of labour on a single piece of structure, which may or may not be prone to earthquakes and other ravages of time.

 

Some of our most impressive structures are actually incredibly old and difficult to determine the precise dates they were built.

The hall of Mirrors - Palace of Versailles

The hall of Mirrors - Palace of Versailles | ancient world history cluster | Scoop.it

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:44 PM

It is hard to imagine the wealth that was on display at the Palace of Versailles.  This had previously been a hunting lodge on the outskirts of Paris when it was remodeled at tax payers great expense.

Voar Travel's curator insight, December 2, 2014 12:44 PM

How can I put into words the beauty of Palace of Versailles.... It is the most over-the-top, painstakingly embellished, extravagantly decorated, extensively luxurious palace I have ever stepped foot into. The ceilings depict various scenes of celestial beings and Greek mythology. Gold seems to be the common material and color used, and the bedrooms look like it could house God Himself. King Louis the XIV wanted his palace to reflect his legacy; they didn't call him the "Sun King" for nothing. Perhaps the most striking and ethereal room in this palace is the "Hall of Mirrors." Or as I'll put it, the "Hallway to God's Freaking Doorstep." Looking down this hallway you will be blown away by the intensity of its beautiful grandeur. Proceed with caution. (Chae Chung)

Whenever I think of or hear about the Grand Canyon, it never crosses my mind of how old it is or how big it is and that it's apart of history.
