Debi B-H has raised a very nice point about getting to know the grandeur
of Roman architecture through modern renditions. It is amazing how many
modern buildings echo in one way or another Roman design. I think it
would be very worthwhile to invite students to undertake a project of
finding "Rome at Home," looking for examples large and small of Roman
influence in the modern world. This might well extend beyond architecture
to road design, military uniforms, bridges, plays, and so on. As a
follow-up project, it might be fun to explore the degree to which we tend
to think of these vestiges of the past as contributing to a present sense
of BEAUTY.
