Being minimally curved, the Pantheon's floor forms the subject of our first architectural project. From some mere measurements given on a plan, we had to sketch out a fragmented wooden model. To support us in visualizing the final result, a variety of technical drawings was essential. In addition to the external structure, one pair of diagonals crosses each other in the center, connecting four of the corners and strengthening the construction.

Any final project isn't it far more rewarding when accomplished by collaborating and assisting each other?
