Rating: 7,9/10 (1400 votes)Circus is a building in the British city of Bath, named after its rounded shape. The circus building was built by the architect John Wood Sr. in the Georgian style in 1754-1768. The architect died shortly after the start of construction work, so his son John Wood Jr. finished the business. The design of the building was created on the model of the Roman Colosseum; Doric columns, Corinthian and composite orders were borrowed from the ancient building. Among other things, the Circus is richly decorated with Masonic symbols, this was a frequent element in John Wood's projects. There is a small square in front of the Circus, from which the streets diverge in a semicircle.
