Flamur Dellovci In-Class Assignment (Architectural Achievements Over Time)

From 30,000 BCE to 1,000 CE, civilizations have been improving steadily over time; at the beginning of architectural history, times in between architectural achievements were slow to start. But overtime, once we get into Egyptian architecture do we see acceleration in appreciation for architects and their innovative ideas for designing structures and spaces. With this, people tended to travel further distances over time which helped others see other forms of architecture and eventually be inspired by this either by Kings or rulers who looked to flex their power through the structures they’ve built and show off how impressive they were. Eventually, overtime, in shorter time spans, architecture started speeding up in different eras such as the Romans, Gothic architecture. With technology progressing and architecture becoming more pronounced we find that inventions in architecture and design only increase. Engineers coming up with more innovative ways to achieve daring conceptual designs by architects, we see that more and more achievements are being met in shorter time spans. In only the last 1000 years have we achieve the most in our architectural history, from different materials used to different innovative ways to represent time periods and turn living spaces into more habitable places. What used to be only accessible to only rulers, architecture is now readily available to anyone who has any reasonable amount of money and a vision to achieve that, thus a faster rate of architectural achievements in modern history. What helps with this is using past architectural achievements to help accelerate the knowledge of how to design and further improve and innovate with new ideas. It was slower at the start with nothing to look upon other than the ground and the trees around it to come up with making habitable spaces.

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.

The most impacted event that will have me for this week is the 9/11 attacks. The reason is because my oldest brother was affected by the event the most. At the time my brother was attending High School of Economics and Finance and he witnessed all of it which is the worst that could happen because at a young as a student who is attending high school in the first week can traumatize anyone because you have the feeling that is this certain area safe or not. But impacts me as well because I feel the same affect my brother has, but It bothers me during this week because ever since that day my brother was never the same as he was before. One of the three events that will have the greatest impact is the homework that is due tomorrow. The only day I have off is Thursday during the week so if I had homework due next week or Friday I take the time on Thursdays to do my homework. Going to the school really helps me a lot because at home its harder to do homework and I focus more at the school. I always try to manage my time when deadlines are due especially for certain assignments that require a lot of work. The least important is the past events even though they are lessons in life but not as much what occurs currently in your life right now. The past is mostly what you have done already and you know what to do and what not to do because you learn from your mistakes and you have the time now in the present to fix that and get things done the right way.

Introduction about Myself

My name is Tristan Ramirez and I was born on February 3rd, 1999. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. I am 18 years old as of now. Before I attended City college of Technology, I graduated from High School of Art & Design in Manhattan. I also majored in Architecture so I know a little bit more about what the major deals with and the work that is put into projects. I mainly enjoy making models or drawing perspectives. In my high school we were given a class called Art History that talked about the past of what and how structures were formed and even not just structure wise, but paintings and drawings of medieval time periods and the colonization of America. On weekends for my freshman and sophomore year I signed up for Saturday classes at Cooper Union that offer free classes to learn and gain knowledge from students who attend that school and show other high school students what the studio classes are like. The challenges I have faced is when deadlines are due and I don’t seem to find the time to do certain assignments I get stressed because I don’t manage my time well enough. Most of the time I mostly just stay in the school and do homework because when I go homework it’s too many distractions. The things that I enjoy is playing sports or exploring the city or even go for a walk around my neighborhood and look up or around and admire some the buildings in the city and listen to music and hang-out with friends and family. In this class I am hopefully and willing to gain the knowledge this class offers so I can understand a little bit how structures were built in the past and use the knowledge and be innovative on projects that are due in the future.
