Who were the ancient world's greatest architects


I saw someone talking about it, so it got me wondering. Who do you all think were the best? Ancient Romes? Greeks? Chinese? Indians? Maybe some middle eastern group? How about Egypt?

Seriously, why don't we have a thread about which ethnic group has the biggest penis size and be done with it?

Because Architecture is actually a major thing in history. I've never read a book on a culture that didn't mention it's innovention in Architecture. It very much is a historical thing, since I've seen many people say Rome Architecture is it's greatest contribution to the world.

Oh fine, have it your way then. I voted the Romans. The dome and arch were major innovations.

In my humble opinion; we should leave that question rhetorical and get on with the discussion.

From what I know, the Romans were the strongest in architecture. Although no longer in existence, I find Caesar's bridge incredibly impressive.

The first bridge over the danube was supposedly a feat of incredable engineering. Even creating it in those waters would be a feat that would have cost thousands of Chinese lives (thats why I could never vote for China.. they tend to have high death counts for major building processes)
