Geometries of Churches Analysis


There are many Churches within history. From churches inspired by gothic architecture to the ones built around 500 to 1420 AD. these churches have had many changes which overtime improved designs of churches. Also within different times churches did things that were different in their designs. Some used structural elements such as flying buttresses for support as well as aesthetic purposes. One church in particular that uses this element is the notre dame cathedral. There are also structures which use stained glass to create these amazing areas of light which also tell a story through the glass. While going through lectures in class I noticed that a majority of the churches shown have an area in which at some point all attention points towards. Throughout time churches have done things that have made each individual structure stand out. From using structural elements as an aesthetic asset to pushing back the entrances to add a level of depth to a structure. Some churches had a radial setup or octagonal look with a center which had a dome above it. Also based off what the people of that church worshipped the shape of the structure would vary. This was something very interesting in my opinion. Some  churches represented something based off how they were built. If a church had a vast dimension with a lot of repetition it is viewed as powerful.

ARCH1121 Introduction About Myself

                                      Introduction about Myself

        My name is Jamal Sennon I was born on October 19th 1998. I was Born in Brooklyn New York. I am currently 18 years old. Before college I attended Brooklyn High School of the Arts. I majored in Art. I really enjoy Drawing, and  painting. When I was in High school I would attend programs to practice drawing and learn about different professions that i could eventually proceed in studying in college.When I was in my third year of highschool I signed up for a  architecture class at Cooper Union on weekends. I happened to really enjoy this class and the idea of designing these huge structures. Some challenges I have had in life are being able to manage my time in a way that keeps me from being stressed at the last minute when work is due. Some other things that I enjoy are listening to music, exploring new areas or things i have never seen, and watching movies. In this class I am hoping to gain knowledge on architectural history as well as some extra this on the side that can help me to become better as a student.

ARCH 1121 In class Assignment Jamal Sennon

If I had to choose from the three things listed I would choose going to college. I would choose this because it is one the things that is currently most important to me. I¬†would choose this because those¬† readings and attending those classes are my responsibilities are my¬†mine to fulfill. I feel like I would rather do this than the other two. The past event doesn’t seem as important to me because I didn’t really¬†know much like any¬†people that suffered through the tragedies.¬†¬†However it was still a horrible event that should be recognized. If I could pick a second one it would be the anniversary of the 9/11 attack. I think the homework and attending classes would have the greatest impact on me. I believe this because it would impact my future. Yes voting would also do that but individually as a person I would want to work on better educating myself. History has a big role on the future of each of us. It is able to change the way people think and perceive things in the world. By understanding and seeing things that have repeated in¬†history¬†people are able to predict things or stop them from happening. Also You can learn things¬†from historic events that can help you in your future.
