    The Pantheon in Rome is an ideal case study for understanding classical space, orders, composition, light, and character.

A computer rendering by John Burgee shows how it might have appeared when first built. Next week architect Steven W. Semes will explain why the Pantheon has lasting influence on architecture over the ages.
