Hadrian, as Emperor of Rome, was a great patron of architecture. Apparently he had a keen personal interest in it, as the remains of his vast villa at Tivoli testify. Probably he was something of an amateur architect, perhaps like Thomas Jefferson--or at least as involved in grand projects of his own envisioning as Nelson Rockefeller. Probably the Pantheon was Hadrian's true creation, in terms of its genesis--but it may be misleading to imagine the Emperor of Rome making drawings and supervising construction. Rome had plenty of very capable architects to execute the Emperor's vision.
