It's a reflection of Hopper's ambivalence towards America's rapid march into modern urbanism, the isolation and loneliness he felt in the face of such changes. A theme that appears in many of Hopper's other paintings and reflects his views on urban living. In Office in a Small city, the viewer is looking through a side window of a plain utilitarian building of a solitary man in a corner office. The highrise the man currently occupies is unassuming. Its color a soft white.
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.
The interpretation of an urban environment incorporates several perspectives that co-exist and interact to create an ultimate experience of an area. Contradictory views of a single region certainly exist however; together they create a single neighborhood because each district integrates different perceptions to generate a single experience. Although the appearance and performance of the city are the traditional focus of urban planning, the city's population and economic resources are an important concern which creates entirely different observation viewpoints. Thus, contemporary city planning continues to focus on physical design, but also attempts to address the many long-range social and economic decisions that must be made. As a result, there are several thoughts and ideas portrayed in a single urban environment.
Rosemary Hawker, in her essay ‘Idiom Post-medium: Richter Painting Photography’, stated ‘In stark contrast to the medium-specificity of high modernism, today, many great artworks are made using more than one medium”. Sure to Rise relates greatly to Hawkers statement. It does not fit into Greenberg’s theory of medium specificity. This is a large sculpture, sitting on the wall occupying the space of a painting. Using lowly considered craft materials this works depicts a recognisable and iconic building.
ArchiCAD, however, is very similar to AutoCAD but because of its limitations, some things that should be simple and intuitive are actually quite tedious. ArchiCAD forces its users to work only in a plan view. This makes it very difficult to create a complex elevation. By the time one can finish, all the effort and inspirational thoughts that influenced a project are gone. Anyone in the architectural field today should know that when using any architectural software, trimming slabs to the progression of stairs should be real easy.
Similar to this urban acupuncture is the way that “cures” the city and social problems by making changes of certain part in the city. Although there are cultural and social specificities, cities are facing problems in common. Connecting the formal and informal city is their main aim of activities. They attempt to put together communities, design ideas and urban actors on the ground that are the stakeholders in order to produce high-quality architecture.
4. ANALYZING - mastering the following skills: "classify, separate, distinguish, and outline." (Ellis, 2015, p. 56). 5. EVALUATING - to concur with another 's idea.
These may be the physical buildings, the roads and pavements through to the street furniture and the open spaces, plants and landscaping. The other elements that populate these spaces also serve to define the materiality of the city – trams, busses, cars, cyclists and even pedestrian traffic. Whilst this represents the “public” face of materiality, there is a more private face constructed by the individuals that inhabit the city. Their own constructions within their private spaces are part of the material of the city, but are not generally shared. The decoration and furnishing of an apartment may be influenced and controlled by a number of factors – the previous occupier, the ownership of the property and the availability of materials in the city.
Urbanism embraces a range of urban design and town development philosophies which recognise that the physical coherence of communities. Architects approach seeks to design mixed use community and interconnected streets. Perhaps, most of the city streets are mere trenches, narrowly pressed between two rows of high houses; the sun never descends into them. A pale crowd moves through them ceaselessly and the eye is struck at each corner by filth.What are the guidelines by which a city can breathe? By which city streets are recognised for community coherence?
Narrow passageways and mazes of stairs are common in the castles. The sense of power in the country is obvious in the location of the buildings. The buildings in Japan are always asymmetrical, opposite of China. Paintings and Art In China, most of the artists worked not for money but for themselves, so their paintings and art were forms of individual expression. They tried to express themselves with symbols and personal terms.
