Project 1: Neoclassical Architecture and Design
The Neoclassicism era lasted between 1720-1920 Neoclassical buildings include arcs, pillars, symmetry, all sorts of shapes, and most of all... Detail. Buildings and their architects include the White House made by James Hoban, the Monticello (pictured above) designed by Thomas Jefferson, and the Arc De triomphe designed by Jean Chalgrin
Neoclassicism Concept drawing
Poster including 3 buildings (white house on bottom, Arc De Triomphe on bottom right, and the Buckingham palace on top) I used these buildings because they capture neoclassicism in its whole. All buildings preserve perfect symmetry, and have detail. My 3 words are Detailed, Style, and Elegant (or elegance). My group and I concluded that these 3 words were the best to use for said Era, and they're in cursive. Further examining the point that neoclassical is an older era.
Historic Era Analysis
The diagrams pictured above are diagrams of the Monticello, which was mentioned earlier and is the second image on the website. These drawings show a simplified layout of the floor from a birds eye view. Parti diagrams show main walls and some rooms, whilst program diagrams focus on the service that room provides (such as a bedroom, outdoor area, work area, ect)
My building is made up of all that I have learned throughout my 6 weeks of Neoclassical building studies. It is inspired by the Monticello in the sense that the main shape of the house is rectangular and throughout the middle is an oval shape, perpendicular to the Rectangular shape. The building is 2 stories tall and has pillars in a semi-spherical shape at the front and back of the house. The house preserves symmetry and has detailed windows, and shapes all around it.
