In an unfortunate twist of fate the church was only partially realized and later destroyed. Present history's only memory comes in three engravings by Guarino Guarini himself: a plan, a transversal section, and the main elevation. An example of Italian Baroque Architecture, the building shines for its intriguing plan and complex system of vaults. Its execution was supposed to be realized according to the refined techniques of French stereotomy. Faithful to its original inspiration, Sainte-Anne is here rebuilt using a rational geometric system that links each element in the composition by projections a...</p> Lecture: Invisibility in the Information Age snatraj 2015-09-22T14:23:14-04:00 >2015-09-22T14:23:14-04:00 <p>4:30 PM in AUP 170.<br>Lecture Summary: Within recent years the widespread collection and interconnectivity of data from cities, domestic spaces and bodies has significantly affected design culture and discourse.

Based on extensive archival research and unpublished materials, Author Timothy M. Rohan unearths the ideas that informed Rudolph&rsquo;s architecture, from his Florida beach houses of the 1940s to his concrete buildings of the 1960s to his lesser-known East Asian skyscrapers of the 1990s. Situating Rudolph within the architectural discourse of his day, Rohan shows how Rudolph countered the perceived monotony of mid-century modernism with a dramatically expressive architecture for postwar America, exemplified by his Yale Art and Architecture Building of 1963, famously clad in corrugated concrete. The fascina...</p> Lecture: Jože Plečnik: A Modern Classicist. snatraj 2015-09-16T16:49:38-04:00 >2015-09-16T16:49:38-04:00 <p>&ldquo;Jo&#382;e Ple&#269;nik: A Modern Classicist&rdquo; presentation by Peter Kre&#269;i&#269;, Ph.D., professor, Faculty of Humanistic Sciences, University of Koper, Slovenia.</p><p>Lecture Summary: The Slovenian architect Jo&#382;e Plec&#780;nik (1872-1957) had a huge impact on the modern identity of Slovenia&rsquo;s capital, Ljubljana.
