Your Final Project for this course will be a virtual time capsule. A time capsule is a grouping of items for future discovery.
For our purposes, we will imagine that our time capsule will be buried at the end of the course and opened 100 years later.
The goal of our capsule is to provide an overview of what you believe future generations should remember about the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
The project can be composed in Microsoft Word or Powerpoint. It can include multimedia if you wish.
It should include the following eight parts:
Project Week 2 - Part IFor this project, we will give a detailed analysis to both a piece of architecture and a work of art. However, we will examine art in your community and life. The objective of the assignment is to apply the concepts from the chapter to art and architecture in daily life. Choose a piece of art and architecture that are from the 20th Century or Beyond!
“Take a field trip around your neighborhood, city, or region. Find one example of architecture that catches your attention. Explain what you see in detail. Discuss the elements of form and function. Which concepts from the chapter reading are applied in this work? Researching the style may help you to add credibility to your analysis. Cite the chapter, and make it clear how you see the architectural terms in use.”
