Stylistically, Mannerist architecture was marked by generally diverging tendencies from Renaissance and Medieval styles that eventually led to the Baroque style, in which the same architectural vocabulary was used for very different rhetoric. Baldassare Peruzzi (1481–1536) was an architect working in Rome, whose work bridges the High Renaissance and Mannerism. His Villa Farnesina of 1509, is a very regular monumental cube of two equal stories, with the bays articulated by orders of pilasters. Peruzzi’s most famous work is the Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne in Rome. The strange features of this building are that its façade curves gently around a curving stre... ... middle of paper ... ...y used to describe the art in Italy which directly succeeded that of the Renaissance and preceded the Baroque.
The concept of types is also taken as a process of transformation, where the type is thought as the frame work within which change occurs. In this process of change, the architect can extrapolate from the type, change its use or different types can be overlapped to form a new type. Architect characterises architecture as a discipline, when an architect is able to describe new set of formal relations through new type. According to Vidler, architecture possesses the capability to generate a complete image or structure comprising subject-object relations within city, and which then propose an experience of a real and historical life inside what is yet an irreducibly structural design modality, or the critical function of typology. Therefore, to understand the subject matter of type is to understand the character of architectural object.
According to Holl (1989), the most distinctive feature of architecture instead of the other activities is to stem from being an integral part of a place. This means that place is a ground with its inside and outside and constitutes the basis of both the building and the design. Holl’s architectural manner contains the responsibility of focusing on the urban voids in architectural design. In his essay named as “Modernizm’in Yerellikle Uzlaşma Arayışı: Holl” , Abdi Güzer (1995) mentions about the concept of anchoring of Holl that the exterior voids are not only the ground of the building but also of design concepts. Also, the building does not always have a change in order to take part in music, film or art, thus every building has only one place.
Geometric figures, forms and transformations build the material of architectural design. In the history of architecture geometric rules based on the ideas of proportions and symmetries formed fixed tools for architectural design. Proportions were analyzed in nature and found as general aesthetic categories across nature and art. Therefore proportions such as the golden section were seen as the power to create harmony in architecture as well as in art and music. Geometry can be seen also as a structural science.

Character becomes an important force in architectural theory. Although character starts with a functionalist aesthetic and it is the fitness of the building which is expressed, the idea of power begins to overpower the functional character becomes connected to emotiveness. Further, function begins to take on a symbolic expression rather than the idea of fitness. Claude Nicolas Ledoux and Etienne Louis Boullee are students of Blondel, and they extended his theoretical position to an extreme. Domination of the visual and the impact of architecture on the senses is a driving concern on Boullee.
Even when it comes to the design process an architect places a scenario or a character to develop the design further. As stated by Neutelings Riedijk Architects, “Spaces in a building relate to each other like scenes in a theatrical performance”. Architecture is the telling of a story. The buildings itself are the backdrop of in which life is represented.
Introduction As we realize that Construction is the way toward developing a building or framework. Construction is a general term meaning the art and science to form objects, systems, or organizations and comes from Latin constructionem (from com- "together" and struere "to pile up") and Old French construction. Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client. Construction as an industry compromises of 6 % to 9 % of the gross domestic product (GDP) of developed countries. Construction begins with planning, design, and financing; and continues until the project is built and ready for use.
1. Introduction Hybridization is basically mixing up of two or more different things to get a new item. Talking particularly in terms of architecture, hybridization may be a mixture of two or more different types of architectural styles, or another type of hybridization may be an amalgamation of technology with the essence of the Built Environment; there can be many such combinations. One such Hybridization is of FORM and ENERGY. This blend actually starts within the early thinking of the designer.
Typology-based in museum design Introduction There are several ways to start a design project. Typology review Typology is a system of similarities that emphasizes the character of form. Giulio Carlo Argan defined typology as "not just a classifying or statistical process, but one carried out for definite formal ends", with the analysis and reduction of the physical functions of buildings and their configurations taking place in a ‘typological series'. (Sam Jacoby, 2) The form is the primary object that when we are doing architectural research. The design method of typology is based on the study of social cultures and histories.
