Anthemius of Tralles and Isidorus of Miletus, Hagia Sophia, 532-537 CE. Built by Justinian after the Nika Revolt in 532 to replace a church burned during the riots as a way of reasserting his power and authority. It has since been a church, a mosque, and is currently a museum. The tallest dome is 180 ft tall. The piers which support the domes are made of ashlar masonry with no concrete used. The men who designed the Hagia Sophia were not architects. They were a mathematician and a physicist.
