nave of Sant’ Andrea
First, consider the elevation and nave of Sant’ Andrea. In your opinion, how are Albert’s life, education, and architectural theory reflected in its design?
Next, research the life, education, and architectural theory of your favorite 20th or 21st-century architect. Find an example of their work that reflects important aspects of their life, education, and architectural theory.
In your essay, introduce both buildings, then compare and contrast the way their architects’ life, education, and architectural theory are reflected in their design. Conclude by explaining how the buildings are similar, but also different, and why.
Illustrate your text to clarify your argument.
These essays are intended to encourage you to look closely at particular examples of Renaissance cultural expression and to think independently and critically about their meaning.
