Where -Washington, USA

The Capitol was originally designed by William Thornton in 1793, rebuilt after the 1814 fire and expanded over many years (by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, Charles Bulfinch and Thomas Ustick Walter). Thornton’s scheme was in the Anglo-Palladian tradition of a half-century earlier and called for a central Pantheon-type saucer dome. The Capitol’s most defining feature today, Walter’s enormous cast-iron dome, was added in 1860-63 to replace a lower dome, reconstructed after the 1814 fire.
