Building for World Domination

Monumental architecture as the proclamation of a culture’s wealth and power.

The Great Pyramid at Giza was built between 2580–2560 BCE for the 4th Dynasty Pharaoh, Khufu, and remains the largest building ever constructed (though there is evidence of pyramidal structures in ancient China that may have been even larger). Its volume is vast — great enough to entirely contain St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, Rome.
