During the age of enlightenment , everything from art and religion to science and mathematics was questioned. Architecture was no exception. Architects would often place emphasis on the structural integrity of their works, but yet they still maintained a sense of extreme beauty and exquisiteness. Objects and buildings were built with simplistic, ordinary geometric shapes…But when combined together, they provided for incredible pieces of art.
When you combine architecture that was built soley because it “looks good”- age of faith….with architecture that was built soley on the premise that it would be structurally sound…you get a very interesting hybrid of architecture that is absolutely beautiful
A good example in which the Age of Faith and the Age of Reason overlap can be seen in the Church of Saint Geneviève in Paris, which was built in 1755 by architect Jacques-GermainSoufflot.
