Name of Model: Colosseum
Created by: rack911
Found at:
The Colosseum is one of the most recognizable landmarks from ancient Rome. It's also one of the most famous round buildings in the world, making it a bit of a challenge to build in LEGO form (which is why you don't see as many Colosseum models as you do, say, Parthenon models). A large collection of plate hinges does the trick here - the angles used are a bit small so the building maintains a fairly solid appearance from a distance. This model captures the present-day ruins of the Colosseum fairly well, using colors and lighting to majestic effect.

EDIT 12/31: In spite of actually linking to accurate information about the original, I still managed to get the location wrong here. Serves me right for rushing this post up and not preparing it further in advance. It's now been corrected, thanks to eagle-eyed readers who notified me right away.
