Question description

Many of the buildings we have discussed in the last several lectures take their inspiration from, or refer directly to, earlier precedents. Late Baroque and Neoclassical buildings, for example, often refer to ancient Roman or Greek prototypes. Some recall Renaissance or Mannerist progenitors. This tendency is not unique to European buildings. We have seen that Chinese, Japanese, and Islamic buildings also refer back to earlier examples. For this assignment choose a building constructed sometime between 1600 and 1800 and compare it to one or more earlier buildings that influenced it's designer.* :


1. Use one image depicting the building you have chosen and one image of its precedent. In an extended caption of 150 (minimum) to 200 (maximum) words, compare the two; this can point out similarities and/or difference between the buildings. Use your own words; do not quote directly from another source, and make sure your writing is grammatically correct. The title of the assignment must include the name of the building you have chosen, its date of completion or dates of construction, its location, and the name of its architect. Indicate the source of each image. Submit this as a single 8.5 x 11 pdf file no larger than 2 mb
