Exploring the Thoughtful Design of Architecture from Bramante to Wright
- Architecture is the thoughtful making of space
- Modern buildings lack this thoughtful composition and are usually just a bunch of rectangular boxes
- Bramante’s St. Peter’s, Santa Maria del car and Unity Temple have been analyzed for their volumetric design, formal geometry and figure-ground relationships
- Sacred geometry was used to symbolize religious ideas
- During the Renaissance, architects utilized Greek and Roman precedents by using formal spatial design in order to reach new heights
- Wright believed that making a space was the primary intent of architecture, fusing independent volumes to create dynamic rooms full of mystery for occupants to decipher through experience.
