This anatomical theatre in Uppsala was built as a place to hold public dissections - you could pay to be in the audience, but it was also meant as a way to teach students about anatomy. It was built in 1662-63 by one of the most prominent scientists of the day in Sweden: Olof Rudbeck (the Elder/den äldre) when he was principal of Uppsala University. Internationally he is probably most known as one of the first to describe the lymphatic system - so that he would be into anatomy is no surprise.

The place is built extremely narrow, to give the audience a good view down, with just standing space. The abundance of windows (which would have been even more striking back then, when Swedish houses as such tended to have rather small windows) was to give ample light to the room below. And note the decorations with the classical order of columns: Doric at the bottom, Ionic in the middle, and Corinthian at the top.

Located at Gustavianum, now a museum, in Uppsala.

London Paddington station opened for traffic as early as 1838 - and the current station dates to 1854, when it was constructed by one of the most famous British engineers of the Victorian era: Isambard Kingdom Brunel - he took inspiration from the Crystal Palace n Hyde Park, built for London exhibition of 1851. The station has, of course, seen much rebuilding since then, especially with the increase of traffic - but the roof was also completely reconstructed in the 1920s, replacing the original iron structure with steel but striving to retain the original look.
