Part III: Comparisons- using diagrams to illustrate text (1 question)
15 points
One select identification from the list below will appear at the exam. The first 4 questions on scantron will be to identify by name, designer, city and style. Then students will write an essay, discussing similarities, but more importantly differences illustrating your text with diagrams. Write the entire time allotted. Even if you are unable to correctly identify the images, discuss site, formal, spatial, material, circulation and other relationships between the two designs. It is better to write this essay as a comparison of the two topics instead of one paragraph about one topic, then the next about the other topic. The more directly your essay compares the topics, the easier it will be for us to read and grade. Let us know if you have questions-
Farnsworth House / Glass House Robie House / Farnsworth House
Knowlton School Arch/ Contemporary Arts Center Stourhead / Parc de la Villette
Farnsworth House / Barcelona Pavilion Villa Rotunda / Villa Savoye
Contemporary Arts Center / Seattle Public Library Knowlton School Arch / Villa Savoye
