The Roman society like any other had its humble beginnings The history of their architecture runs virtually in step with the history of their empire to an extent As the Empire expanded so did the architecture and as Romans became more magnificent their architecture followed Roman architecture had its humble beginnings as a form of worship The first Roman architects were the ancient priests and dwellers who made areas of sacrifice and worship for their gods At first their homes were simple huts but as they grew smarter and more aware of their surroundings they erected monumental sites for their gods This space shall be for worship and for nothing else it shall be four-square whatever is done or said in this holy space the gods shall be aware of whatever comes shall be a sign from the gods Brown 10 So like many arts Roman architectures roots are embedded in the worshiping and homage paid in religion The Romans were of course not the first to unveil and practice many of their building philosophies however they built like no other society before them Their methods incorporated efficiency and sophistication to construct a whole new look So with the rise of the Romans and the everlasting hail of Caesar after Caesar and Emperor after Emperor Roman architecture expanded and influenced building over the world Unlike the Empire though Roman design did not die at the hands of the Germanics or rather at the hands of self-destruction it continued to expand and play a part in every major style throughout history Today a look at any bridge tunnel skyscraper and most buildings will reveal a Roman influence Even through its empires own tribulations and defeat architecture has stood as an everlasting symbol of what Rome once was and what the rest of the world is today To conclude Roman architecture cannot be looked at as a mere time period or cultural event for its ramifications
