Concrete has played a major role in architecture for thousands of years. Some of the Roman concrete structures have lasted over 2,000 years, but they have survived the years with a little help from preservation techniques. There is one building that has lasted without any preservation. The Pantheon in the city of Rome has been standing for 1,900 years. Of course, this 1,900-year old concrete structure went through rebuilds due to fire destruction, but this is the last standing version of it.
Why is it a Mystery to Experts?
The Roman Pantheon is a dome-shaped concrete structure. The mystery of it all is that many are still wrestling with the construction of the building. How has it held up for all these years? How did the Romans reinforce the dome structure to withstand the years?
The Pantheon is still to this day the largest unsupported dome in the world. The dome measures 142-feet in diameter with an opening of 27-feet at the top. The question this day still consists of how long it may have taken to construct this beautiful structure.
