An easy-to-make sturdy paper model that is based on this country's finest example of Federalist architecture. The U. S. Capitol Building represents a triumph of Neoclassical design. Inspired by the great buildings of ancient Rome, the Capitol also follows the architectural styles of England and France. The building possesses a complex history, encompassing major changes and additions with the growth and development of the country and its government. Despite the disparate visions of its many architects, the Capitol's ultimately harmonious design places it among the most beautiful and elegant seats of government in the world.
