Between Science And Drawings

by Liisa Kanerva, Between Science And Drawings Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Between Science And Drawings books, "The education suitable for the architect, according to Vitruvius, included a considerable number of disciplines and teachings: letters, drawing, geometry, arithmetic, optics, history, philosophy, music, law, medicine, astrology, and the celestial calculations. Frome the modern point of view such a wide range of required studies appears exaggerated, but the Renaissance architect writers took the words of the ancient architect very seriously. The way they interpreted the essence of those disciplines and their application in the work of the architect not only clarifies the picture of the Renaissance architect but also offers interesting insights into the Renaissance thinking in general. In this book, the author has widened the scope to include all the most important texts written by the architect writers of the Italian renaissance. The study is focused on the tension and interplay between the two cultures surrounding the Renaissance architects: the upper-class culture of the courts and the workshop culture of the painters and sculptors. In the Renaissance texts the reality is reflected by the changing concepts of scientia and disegno." -- BACK COVER.
