LUXFER DAYLIGHTING should not be
considered an "extra" any more than a heating equipment. Daylight
is as necessary for the healthful conduct of business as a comfortable
temperature. The economy of using real daylight instead of paying
gas or electric light bills is obvious. Why not increase the rental
value of the building?
THE COLOSSEUM, ROME
The Colosseum, or Flavian Amphitheater, Rome, begun by Vespasian in
72 A.D. The axes of this Chief of Amphitheaters are 617 and 512 feet;
of the arena, 282 and 177 feet. The exterior was ornamented with four
tiers of engaged columns with their entablatures, the lowest three
inclosing arches, and the highest walled up, with square windows in
every second intercolumniation. The material of the interior is stone,
of the inner passages and vaults largely brick and concrete. The
interior was faced with marble. In the substructions there is a most
elaborate system of chambers, passages, dens and drains. Despite the
enormous mass of the existing ruin, it is estimated that two-thirds
have been carried away in the middle ages and later as building material.
