According to William L. MacDonald, who wrote the book The Pantheon: Design, Meaning, and Progeny, “Hadrian’s Pantheon is one of the grand architectural creations of all time: original, utterly bold, many-layered in associations and meaning, the container of a kind of immanent universality.” While Hadrian was not the architect of the very first Pantheon, he was the architect of the one that stands today. The first Pantheon was started in 27 BC by Marcus Vispanius Agrippa. It was unfortunately destroyed by a fire in 80 CE. The second Pantheon was commissioned by Domitian, but it was struck by lightning in 110 CE and burned down as well. In 118 AD, Hadrian completely rebuilt it and made it the majestic beauty that it is today.

The Taj Mahal is a complex piece of architectural art, and it must be viewed to its utmost including its amazing gardens, that lay around the Mausoleum as an invitation to a masterpiece. Jaques Derriad called this concept “deconstructive reading” and it represents the best approach for understanding the Taj Mahal ( Ebba Koch,
Lord and Lady Capulet The reason as to why I have chosen this group of people is because they were the ones that were very pushy and cruel of Juliet, whereas Lord and Lady Montague did not act this way to Romeo. Lord and Lady Capulet regarded their daughter as a possession, and controlled her and make choices for her for their benefits. An example is when later on in the book when Juliet refuses to marry Paris, Lord Capulet said Juliet will either marry him or Lord Capulet will disown her.
