Acropolis

Acropolis

Athens, Greece

There are no straight lines in the Acropolis. The stairs are curved, the columns are unequally spaced and each column bulges in the middle. This optical illusion makes it look like it's perfecty straight when at a distance. The careful calculations and feat of engineering needed to pull this off are staggering.
