BUILD it and they will come? A group of architects want to reinspire Europe by rebuilding one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — the Colossus of Rhodes.

But the team stresses they do not want to build a replica of the original bronze structure of a warrior standing over the entrance of the ancient city’s harbour.

Instead, they want to construct a 150-metre tall “reimagining” of the wonder, based on the ambitions and vision of the original 2200-year-old monument.

They want to crowdsource its funding through the internet.

It will still be a colossal statue. It will still be a lighthouse. But it will we sheathed in a bronze-coloured skin that doubles as solar panels.
