1. A History Of Architecture
A history of architecture is a record of man's efforts to build beautifully. The erection of structures devoid of beauty is mere building, a trade and not an art.
var TlxPgNm='index'; A History of Architecture Art Canyon Modern Art in America Art and Beauty Modern Painting ... Our RSS Feed A history of architecture is a record of man's efforts to build beautifully. The erection of structures devoid of beauty is mere building, a trade and not an art. Edifices in which strength and stability alone are sought, and in designing which only utilitarian considerations have been followed, are properly works of engineering. Only when the idea of beauty is added to that of use does a structure take its place among works of architecture. We may, then, define architecture as the art which seeks to harmonize in a building the requirements of utility and of beauty. It is the most useful of the fine arts and the noblest of the useful arts. It touches the life of man at every point. It is concerned not only in sheltering his person and ministering to his comfort, but also in providing him with places for worship, amusement, and business; with tombs, memorials, embellishments for his cities, and other structures for the varied needs of a complex civilization. It engages the services of a larger portion of the community and involves greater outlays of money than any other occupation except agriculture. Everyone at some point comes in contact with the work of the architect, and from this universal contact architecture derives its significance as an index of the civilization of an age, a race, or a people. It is the function of the historian of architecture to trace the origin, growth, and decline of the architectural styles which have prevailed in different lands and ages, and to show how they have reflected, the great movements of civilization. The migrations, the conquests, the commercial, social, and religious changes among different peoples have all manifested themselves in the changes of their architecture, and it is the historian's function to show this. It is also his function to explain the principles of the styles, their characteristic forms and decoration, and to describe the great masterpieces of each style and period.

          Architecture History
          Almost no part of the world has not been touched by human intervention. Although one might argue that practicing Architects these days generally need no very specific and detailed knowledge of architecture in the past, still the goal of theses courses is to provide architects and architecture students with a broad general exposure to the visual culture of architecture as manifestations of culture in a historical context. Therefore these courses survey, chronologically and thematically, a number of theoretical issues, technologies and social changes that have intersected with, influenced or been interpreted by architecture and related practices concerned with the built environment. These courses should increase your awareness of how Architecture involves not only technology and visual design, but in ours as in all past ages can also be understood as Ideas in Three-Dimensional Form. Understanding of the critical design factors can indeed be better explained if introduced through the historical context, perception, communication and meaning of architecture. The following courses showcase differing architecture and it is up to the student to learn from these ancient designers and professionals, both through the eyes of the professors and the writers and through their own eyes.

    Browse The Egg
    The construction of The Egg began in 1966 and was completed twelve years later in 1978. The Egg was designed by Wallace Harrison for all the people of New York State and to accommodate many events and performances. Architecturally, The Egg is without precedent. From a distance it seems as much a sculpture as a building. Though it appears to sit on the main platform, the stem that holds The Egg actually goes down through six stories deep into the Earth. The Egg keeps its shape by wearing a girdle - a heavily reinforced concrete beam that was poured along with the rest of the shell. This beam helps transmit The Egg's weight onto the supporting pedestal and gives the structure an ageless durability that belies its nickname. The Egg houses two theatres - the Lewis A. Swyer Theatre and the Kitty Carlisle Hart Theatre. Seating 450, the Swyer Theatre is used for chamber music concerts, cabaret, lectures, multimedia presentations, solo performers and a majority of educational programming. With a seating capacity of 982, the Hart Theatre is used for larger productions including musical theatre, dance and music concerts. Wrapping around fully half The Egg is a lounge area for the Hart theatre. This space is ideal for seminars, receptions, after theatre parties and small cabaret type performances.

      Architecture history moves out after Scully
      By Amir Sharif Staff reporter Monday, September 20, 2010 Though buildings are sometimes referred to as walk-in works of art, the History of Art Department is letting architecture walk out. With the departure last year of iconic Yale professor Vincent Scully ’40 GRD ’49, the department was left with a void in its architectural history offerings, professors in the department and the School of Architecture said. Though the introductory history of art survey Scully taught is being offered again this year — taught by History of Art professors Milette Gaifman and Jacqueline Jung — it does not have the architectural focus that was Scully’s passion. Scully’s departure also coincided with the onset of hiring restrictions Universitywide, preventing the department from filling its curricular gap. To fill this gap, the School of Architecture is offering a two-semester architectural history sequence this year. Though architectural historians once dominated the History of Art Department — a tradition Scully said began in the 1930s, when architecture-focused French emigres filled Yale’s faculty — this academic year, the department is offering just one architecture-based class to undergraduates and no surveys of architectural history.
