Five Beautiful Buildings That Changed Architecture
Can a building be a work of art? Professor Francis Morrone says absolutely, yes! In this unique presentation, he’ll take an in-depth look at five of the greatest and most influential buildings in Western architecture, from the Greeks to the 20th century. These structures are worth getting to know individually, but they are also the buildings that inspired whole new ways of doing things–and that will teach you how to appreciate other buildings all around you. These are not simply Professor Morrone’s choice of the “greatest” buildings, but rather his personal choice of five buildings that will give you a foundation for further study, and that will enrich your experience of the built environment. Featured buildings (subject to change) will include: The Erechtheum in Athens, the Tempietto at San Pietro in Montorio (Rome), the Villa Barbaro in Maser, Italy, and Notre-Dame de Paris (and at least one more).
Great presentation of a fascinating subject. Please have professor Marrone back soon.
