Assignment 1 (Parthenon)

 

Oh Parthenon, such a beauty you are. The way you are build from the ground up catches every men’s eyes. One cannot began to tell your faults, for you were build not for mere humans but for Athena. We all truly know denying your beauty would be out of ignorance and spit. Many are jealous of you, having Athena by your side after all is any man’s dreams and desire. I know that others envy and jealousy has caused you much pain and damage. They have stripped you from your riches, robbed you of what has held you standing up for many years and left you do be broken. But yet you still manage to stand. When looking at it they have not stripped you of nothing important. They have just began to prove how strong and breath taken you truly are. You still manage to grab many peoples heart, inspiring them and giving them the opportunity to travel through times. Resting at the top of the city since 447 BC and still to this day out standing your foes. It’s a pleasure getting to learn about you.

Create a dialogue talking to the Parthenon.

The Parthenon is quite important in Greek architecture as it was built for Athena in a time when gods were revered as beautiful mystical beings that ruled over the land and the people. It’s made mostly of columns that are Doric in design, with less ornamentation in its capital. It was considered the most beautiful piece of architecture in its time, although copied quite frequently in revival Greek architecture. Personally, I consider it to be quite bland but I understand its importance and extraordinary feat of architectural beauty and proportional consideration. One of the more interesting aspects of this structure is how it was intended to be viewed; the Greeks designed it to be viewed in 360 degrees before you ever reached the structure itself. Parthenon, amazing structure to view in all 360 degrees of the Acropolis it stands on, a mountain top made to view a structure created beautifully outside and to stand out amongst the Greek skies. What is now missing of you, the color, the fresh marble, roof tiles and the Statue of Athena, still has us wondering what you looked like in your peak form. It’s hard to appreciate you without seeing you the way the Architect intended to.

The First building is The French Building located in Midtown Manhattan New York. It was first built in 1927 before the Great Depression. It is used primarily as an office building and also houses classrooms of Pace University.  The building is one of the better known projects of the real estate developer Fredrick Fillmore French. The architects that designed this structure were H. Douglas Ives and Sloan & Robertson. It was the tallest building on Fifth Avenue when completed, by the 1990s it underwent a complete restoration, subsequently earning the Building Owners and Managers Association 1994/1995 Historic Building of the Year Award. The National Register of Historic places listed the building in January 2004. At the top of the building it has a striking art deco that can easily attract someone’s eyes.

The second building is called the Safra National Bank Tower located in New York. It was in built in 1990 standing at 23 stories tall. It used as an office space while CompStak has 11 lease comps for this property, dating from 2007 to 2017. Safra National Bank of New York is affiliated with Banco Safra S.A., one of the largest private banks in Brazil   with approximately 100 branches throughout the world. The bank has a worldwide network of resources and products made available by the Safra Group of banks and financial institutions.

These two structures are similar in a way with the use of the building. They both are an office space, and as well as the height of each building. One thing that contrast between the two is they were built between two different time periods of the same century. The first building was built before the Great Depression and the second building was built in the late 20th century or as you can say the modern era of buildings.
