Chapter 30B1. What was the chief formal concern of Modernist architects and how was this reflected in their buildings?Modernist architects were concerned with a formalism stressing simplicity. They articulated this in buildings that retained intriguing organic sculptural qualities, as well as in buildings adhering to a more rigid geometry. (pg. 813)2. What features give the Notre-Dame-du-Haut an aura reminiscent of a sacred cave or medieval monastery?The intimate scale, stark and heavy walls, and mysterious illumination (jewel tones cast from the deeply recessed stained-glass windows) are the features that give this space an aura reminiscent of a sacred cave or a medieval monastery. (pg.814)3. Go online and find a large Eero Saarinen building closer to Chambersburg. Identify it and tell me what the overall shape reminds you of and why. This is one answer that is not in the book.
