  • Just by looking at this what do you see immediately? King of symmetry Villa Almerico-Capra, or Villa Capra Also known as The Rotunda Andrea Palladio, architect Begun 1550 Completed after Palladio's death by Vincenzo Scamozzi Located near Vicenza, Italy Villa Almerico-Capra, or the Rotunda , is one of more than twenty villas that Palladio designed on the Venetian mainland. Palladio's design echoes the Roman Pantheon . Villa Almerico-Capra is symmetrical with a temple porch in front and a domed interior. The name Rotunda refers to the villa's circle within a square design. American statesman and architect Thomas Jefferson drew inspiration from Villa Almerico-Capra when he designed his own home, Monticello .

  • Adam synthesized many historic sources into an enchanting individual style. “Dessert on plates” is how a colleague summed up Adam’s circular designs on floor and ceiling. A brilliant decorator he combined contrasting scales and shapes, as in Roman baths, to create lively floor plans. The plaster work os his exuberantly patterned moldings has a jewel like polish. He was first to pay attention to every detail designing everything from carpets to keyholes mixing a basilica style hall with a rotunda

  • What styles did Jefferson choose? Palladian symmetry and dome, two story façade, flanking a central block, service wings are imperceptible sloping down the back, roof terrace allows unobstructed views from the hilltop. Monticello (little Mountain) Believed every country should review its constitution to make changes that allow for new conditions. His home shows this quest He taught himself Italian so he could read Palladio
  • First fabricated building on a grand scale, huge leap in building size, new technology and media and systematization More of a forerunner of 20 th century than 19 th Simple functional style out of iron and glass Created to exhibit the wonders of Victorian technology was a oversized green house devoid of historical ornament Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband wanted the first world’s fair In six months, identical modular cast iron columns and beams were shipped to Hyde Park and mounted with standardized panes Covered 18 hectare 18000 four foot panes of glass 3300 iron pillars spaced
  • Generic mishmash of neoclassical Explored Greek ruins statues atop the buildings like Robert Adams Rusticated base mannerism
  • First of all, this movement's beginning is recorded as having started in England.  The name most closely associated with this movement is arguably William Morris.  he and several others formed a home furnishings company called Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. Their ideas and conceptions of good taste made the rounds in this world at the end of the 19th century in the form of wallpaper, furniture covers and "useful embroideries. Morris felt embroidery should resemble embroidery and not try to precisely imitate nature.  His work was largely inspired by plants and gardens, herbals that he collected, and Medieval crewelwork embroideries.  His work was definitely two dimensional.  He used natural dyes which produced muted tones and were much easier on the eyes than the gaudier aniline dyes that were currently being used.    Above all, quality was most important.  Nothing slip-shod was acceptable.  Morris' embroidery kits were drawn on linen and worked with silks and wool, frequently with a corner already worked as a guide to the buyer, often by his wife and daughter.  He called it "gardening with silk and gold thread."   His company began selling their wallpapers in 1873 in Boston. Some others who were associated with this movement were John Ruskin, the first professor of art history at Oxford, Thomas Wardle, Morris' chief dyer, C.F.A. Voysey, an architect interested in interior design, Frank Lloyd Wright, William De Morgan, Tiffany, painter Edward Burns-Jones, Philip Webb, and others, more numerous than I can hope to count.  {I've attempted to compile an extensive list of links, for those interested in pursuing this line of history, at the bottom of this page.}  These and many others contributed to the arts and crafts movement with their designs, ideas, and lectures Hand made materials Medieval Gothic as a the pinnacle of British culture, provides an informal rustic alternative to overblown Victorian structures. Gothic considered a principle, ethical society, Pugin and John ruskin Hated neoclassical
  • The magnificent Gothic Revival masterpiece you see today was built between 1840 and 1888, this was the work of Charles Barry who designed the buildings to blend with nearby Westminster Abbey. The two imposing towers, well known landmarks in London, are the clock tower, named after it’s thirteen ton bell called Big Ben , and Victoria tower, on who’s flag pole the Union Jack flies when parliament is sitting. Much of the Victorian detail of the interior was the work of Barry’s assistant Augustus Pugin.   Entrance to Westminster Hall is permitted only as part of a guided tour, otherwise it can be viewed from St. Stephen’s porch above. The hall measuring 240 feet by 60 feet has an impressive hammerbeam roof of oak and is one of the most imposing medieval halls in Europe. In this noble setting coronation banquets were held until 1821. It was used as England’s highest court of law until the nineteenth century and it was here that Guy Fawkes was tried for attempting to blow up the House of Lords on 5th November 1605. The statue of Oliver Cromwell, which stands outside the hall, reminds us it was here in 1653 that he was sworn in as Lord Protector.   The route to the upper and lower houses takes you through the huge wooden doors into St. Stephen’s hall. The vaulted ceiling and murals were designed by Barry to replicate the medieval chapel where the commons met until 1834. From here you are ushered into the well known octagonal Central Lobby, whose tiled walls are inscribed with Latin mottos. This is the central meeting place where constituents can meet or "lobby" their Members of Parliament. It is from here that you will be shown your direction either to the House of Lords or Commons.
  • Pioneering skyscraper design, three parts: a two story base to provide a solid foundation A tall central portion with alternating strips of projecting and flat windows and continuous vertical piers to express the steel frame and emphasize height, and a top treated as a separate unit with prominent cornice Classical column: base, fluted shaft, capital
  • Designed modern architecture as an organic whole Form follows function was his motto Influenced a generation of architects Three major visible sections: strong base with broad windows for shops, a middle section for offices with vertical elements to dramatize height and a capping cornice housing mechanical equipment The tripartite division corresponds to practical requirements He doubled the number of vertical piers, every other pier is not load bearing to express not just function bas as a design element forcing the eye to read the middle ten floors as one continuous soaring unit

One of the most famous houses of the modern movement in architecture, the Villa Savoye is a masterpiece of LeCorbusier's purist design. It is perhaps the best example of LeCorbusier's goal to create a house which would be a "machine a habiter," a machine for living (in). Located in a suburb near Paris, the house is as beautiful and functional as a machine. The Villa Savoye was the culmination of many years of design, and the basis for much of LeCorbusier's later architure. Although it looks severe in photographs, it is a complex and visually stimulating structure. As with his church of Notre Dame du Haute, Ronchamp, the building looks different from every angle. After falling into disrepair after the war, the house has been restored and is open to the public. The design features of the Villa Savoye include: modulor design -- the result of Corbu's researches into mathematics, architecture (the golden section), and human proportion "pilotis" -- the house is raised on stilts to separate it from the earth, and to use the land efficiently. These also suggest a modernized classicism. no historical ornament abstract sculptural design pure color -- white on the outside, a color with associations of newness, purity, simplicity, and health (LeCorbusier earlier wrote a book entitled, When the Cathedrals were White), and planes of subtle color in the interior living areas a very open interior plan dynamic , non-traditional transitions between floors -- spiral staircases and ramps built-in furniture ribbon windows (echoing industrial architecture, but also providing openness and light) roof garden, with both plantings and architectural (sculptural) shapes integral garage (the curve of the ground floor of the house is based on the turning radius of the 1927 Citroen) Villa Savoye, Poissy-sur-Seine, 1929-30

  • Frank Lloyd Wright, Solomon r. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1943-1959 Guggenheim Museum Commentary "...[Wright's] great swansong, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of New York, is a gift of pure architecture—or rather of sculpture. It is a continuous spatial helix, a circular ramp that expands as it coils vertiginously around an unobstructed well of space capped by a flat-ribbed glass dome. A seamless construct, the building evoked for Wright 'the quiet unbroken wave.'..." — Spiro Kostof. A History of Architecture, Settings and Rituals. New York: Oxford University Press, 1985. p740. The Creator's Words "Entering into the spirit of this interior, you will discover the best possible atmosphere in which to show fine paintings or listen to music. It is this atmosphere that seems to me most lacking in our art galleries, museums, music halls and theaters."
  • Gehry’s Guggenheim first Computer Aided Designed building Guggenheim Museum Bilbao Commentary The new Guggenheim Museum Bilbao by Frank Gehry was probably the most often mentioned new building of 1998 and 1999 in architecture circles. The composition continues a curvaceous, free-form sculptural style that has become a Gehry signature. The abstract, free-form components of this style were present in the early Gehry House , and a similarly sleek curvaceous cladding was displayed in the sculptural fish of the Fishdance Restaurant.
  • cesar pelli's petronas towers At 1483 feet (452m) tall, the tallest building in the world at the date of its completion, measured to the highest point. However, the Sears Tower in Chicago still has the highest occupied building floor, more than 200 feet higher than the highest occupied floor of the Petronas Towers. Details The towers have 32,000 windows. — Judith Dupre, Skyscrapers. Each of the twin Petronas Towers is 88 stories plus an additional architectural point (at 1242 feet), plus a tall spire to 1483 feet. Compare to the Sears Tower in Chicago which is 110 stories, and the twin World Trade Center towers in New York, which were each 110 stories. Although these other skyscrapers were created with higher occupied floors, they are not considered as tall under the arcane rules used for rating the world's tallest, according to which architectural spires count towards building height, but antennas atop a building do not.

    1. 1. 17 th 18 th 19 th 20th Century Architecture George Bernard Shaw, “You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.”
    2. 2. 17 th Century Architecture: Le Grand Siècle Baroque Italy: ornate, and fraught with emotional appeal. French and British: spectacular size and effect; arrogance and might; reinforced an absolutist political agenda; two dimensional not sculptural; government formulated conventions, comme il faut , “which could be used by all operators” this led to an official style that conveyed permanence and incited envy.

Versailles Palace, Andre Le Notre, Louis Le Vau, Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Charles Le Brun, Robert de Cotte, Ange-Janques Bagriel, 1661 to 1774 , France "When you arrive at Versailles, from the courtyard side you see a wretched, top-heavy building, with a facade seven windows long, surrounded with everything which the imgination could conceive in the way of bad taste. When you see it from the garden side, you see an immense palace whose defects are more than compensated by beauties." — Voltaire http://youtu.be/852eroBwDrA
