The two main sources for this investigation are Cathedrals of the World by Graziella Ciagá and the documentary Building the Great Cathedrals by NOVA. 130 Words Summary of Evidence At the dawn of Gothic cathedral-building, in the 1100s CE, building with rock was dirty and difficult work. And yet, architects and builders of the age were able to build stone monuments of the Middle Ages that dominated skylines for nearly a thousand years, revolutionizing architecture. In the period spanning the 12th and 15th centuries, these Gothic cathedrals borrowed from prior architectural knowledge, formulating a new building system. The gigantic Christian cathedrals took years to build, and were often left uncompleted for decades or even centuries.
This conservative trend was started many years after great prosperity and success in the other industries. As an example, in comparison with the more developed automotive industry, the construction industry has been weighing the pros and cons of doing automation, and it is still under development. Despite some limitations and lack of information over the 80’s and even 90’s, but the current status indicates good progress. Today, most of architectural design is no longer possible without computer technologies. The models have become more complex and require advanced tools to understand design codes and implement fabrication processes.
The great importance of these aspects is backed up by the grandeur of the pyramids and the amount of time it must have taken to build them. It challenges my mind to think of how these great buildings were constructed by the Egyptians so long ago. The use of precise measurements and careful architecture is outstanding for a civilization to practice in that period of time. I felt that I needed to look into these ancient landmarks more deeply and research as much is I could about them. Writing this paper is a good way for me to better appreciate and understan... ... middle of paper ... ...lear to see that there isn’t a definite answer to how the Egyptians leveled, designed, and constructed the pyramids.
The use of architecture can be dated back to the ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian time period, where many structures that aided and inspired the evolution of architecture was created. In today's society as new technologies are being introduced, and we begin to gain more technological advantages the way that we are able to build and create building has dramatically changed . We are using these technologies in architecture to construct some of the largest buildings in the world, and we also use it to build many other buildings including houses. As architecture evolves, artists from the twentieth and the twenty-first century are beginning to incorporate architectural influences from the past into modern architecture. Three artists who are well known for using this method of architecture are Zaha Hadid, Ieoh Ming Pei, and Michael Graves.
I will argue that Roman architecture brought about a new way of designing and constructing buildings which the civilisations before had not established to its full potential. Through my conclusion, one should see that Rome used and improved many pre-existing technologies which allowed many newfound techniques. This enabled them to construct buildings such as the Colosseum, with increased complexity and size. It is commonly believed that the Romans were the founders of the arch due to the complex and world famous buildings they have created using it. However, the first signs of the arches came in the form of a triangul... ... middle of paper ... ... Vitruvius described 5 types of roman atrium house: Tuscan, Corinthian, tetrastyle, displuviate, and testudinate (Sear, F. 1982 p.32).
For him greatest contribution to engineering was the discovery of the art of building with material such as stones. The people that followed him carried engineering to remarkable heights using human brain which gave them skill and imagination. Thanks to Vitruvius' De Architiectura which was published 1AD in Rome which survived and gave us a look at engineering education in ancient times. Civil engineering has the oldest of the disciplines of engineering. It has existed for years but not as a career which is "Civil Engineering".
A major difference between the two was that Carolingian architects used stone only for important buildings such as churches and castles.

We owe many innovations used in design, architecture and overall style to the works of the many artists that flourished in the middle ages. Each of the four periods of development were unique to one another, yet followed an overlying religious theme that defined the medieval times.
The buildings and skyscrapers today look totally different that what was there years ago. Each culture also had it’s own specialty when it came to architecture; Taking a long look at the way the modern world works is very fascinating. Major parts of daily lives were once used by people who lived hundreds of years before us. Many contributions have been made by many time periods. The Renaissance has changed not only the technology we use but, the art we see and what we read and write.
The way each of these art styles differ and evolve from each other are extraordinary, which show their own conventions of representation. The Great three pyramids of Gizeh were built in between a 75-year period. These iconic pyramids were built for the afterlife of the pharaohs. They were made out of limestone blocks and showed how their society felt about the afterlife, investing tons of time and money to build these pristine structures. The pyramids that the Egyptians made were classified into two broad groups.
However, I still see it to be a good idea to have a Bachelor's Degree in architecture to become a residential architect. I feel like it would be very important that I get a degree in architecture for this job because it will give me the skills I need to be hired for more jobs.
