Question description

Explain how a building acts as a kind of sculpture to transform the space around it.

Look through your textbook for an example of a sculpture that you feel would amplify the message that your selected building communicates to onlookers. 

  • When was the building created?
  • Where is it located?
  • What is the building’s original purpose?
  • Who was the architect? What was his or her background and nationality?
  • When was the sculpture created?
  • Who was the sculptor? What was her or his background and nationality?
  • Where was the sculpture originally located?
  • For what purpose was the sculpture originally created?
  • Why do you think the building and sculpture go together or complement each other?
  • Compare the form and function of your selected building and sculpture with the form and function of crafts and decorative arts found within your home or another environment, such as a school, restaurant, or public building (2-slides). For example, for sculpture you might compare with one of the following:
    • Table settings and decorations
    • Jewelry
    • Wall decorations
    • Textiles
    • Crafts
    • Vases and flowers
