“Rome’s Major Urban Structures”

The
Urban Structure I have chosen to discuss is: Well this part is easy,
just tell me which structure you are going to look at, either: Colosseum,
Circus Maximus, Pantheon, insulae (which were Roman apartment
buildings), or bath complexes (feel free to insert a picture in the
discussion as well of your topic that might be cool)

Why I think this structure is so interesting? Discuss
a few things about your structure that you find fascinating. The
Romans were amazing builders and each of these structures has some
fascinating things about them to discuss.

What urban issue did this structure address? Each
of these structures addressed urban issues that no other civilization
had to deal with yet. The sheer size of the city of Rome created these
urban problems and the Romans developed unique solutions. For example,
if you discuss insulae you could address the fact that Rome had an
expanding population and limited space. Most other civilizations just
built outward as they expanded, but Rome, which would eventually be a
city of over a million people simply did not have enough land to build
out, so did they do? They built up!!! Created apartment style housing
for the first time in history

Hi kayl, it is more of a critical thinking answer…
Did the structures solve social Issues? if so which ones…
Did the structures solve entertainment issues? if so which ones…
Did the structure solve political issues, it so which ones…

How this structure has impacted modern buildings? This
part should be easy; all of these building structures have left an
impact on modern building styles and techniques. Again, if you’re
assessing insulae, why do you think apartment buildings look the way
they do, and are designed the way they are? Well, because that’s how
the Romans did it and each of these urban structures created a model for
how future civilizations would design urban structures
