Select a period of architecture that we learned. (I selected The Secession Building in Vienna). Draw connections between the period and the work of architecture, investigating the period’s origin, time frame, design approach, notable characteristics, etc. Investigate the specifics of the work of architecture, such as form, materials, details, construction, assembly, etc, exploring its alignment or contrast to typical works from the period. Consider the architect’s / designer’s role or relationship to the period and the impact of the period on the architect’s work. The paper should be a holistic interpretation of the work of architecture, investigating a range of internal and external factors. The paper SHOULD NOT be a research report or book report, which is focused on the recounting of facts or is solely describing the work of architecture. This paper SHOULD BE an interpretation of the information students discover about the work of architecture and take a unique position. Analysis and synthesis of research is required to produce a paper that satisfies this assignment. The paper should include a minimum of 5 images. Select images that enhance or illustrate the ideas you are discussing. Each image should be clearly labeled, have a caption, and the source be clearly cited in the footnotes at the bottom of the page. For example: “Figure 1: The north façade clearly features the library entrance and the intricate Art Deco details.“ The image label (ie. Figure 1) should be referred in the body of the paper to connect the paper text and images.
