The style of the building and the purpose it is built give a brief and thoughtful storybook about the culture of the architect as art, generally, and architecture, particularly, is a language itself. Thus, buildings narrate the stories of the people among the history and tell their traditions and habits to the next generation through its design, inscriptions, and details. In this essay, I will discuss how both the style and function of the Greek Parthenon and the Roman Pantheon served as typical examples of their cultures in Athens and ancient Rome. In addition to the similarities and differences between these two cultures through the two buildings.

Stepping out of the slumber room, the most prominent feature that the eye is drawn to is the Identity wall. Covering the upper portion of nearly half the sanctuary, it encompasses parts of every inhabitant 's identity. From pictures, achievements, memories, and humor, each component that is hung up and stuck to the wall holds a piece of who the sanctuary keeps.

The table was once meant for the creation of clothing to wear and repair those which had torn, but it has since been retired and re-purposed into a gathering between thought and text.

People in my generation may not know what Stonehenge is, but most of us through family members or either visiting it will know of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The book talks about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and how at the beginning people will barley notice the wall, but once you get walking further, the wall keeps growing, soon taller than the visitors with names upon names. This wall has a few unique features to it, one being that the path is downward sloping so the wall is built the same height all around with a level top. Another being that at the beginning it goes unnoticed, just like the war did when it was first starting out. The last is at the end, where the path slopes back upwards, after you turn a corner, you are either drawn to the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial,
