The Hagia Sophia (top), built in Istanbul in the sixth century, pioneered the use of structures called pendentives to support its enormous dome, and is an example of beauty in Byzantine architecture. Christopher Wren, 1,100 years later, used the same design for the dome of St. Paul’s cathedral (bottom), a London landmark. Both still stand and are used today.
