Case Study: Piazza San Marco.

Organize your analysis in the following manner:

  • Use an 8.5” by 11” format, typed and bound on the left edge.
  • Organize the content into the following order (using each of the following titles in bold
  • as a way of categorizing your analysis):

    o Introduction: give a brief biography of the architect; situate the building and

    the architect historically and culturally.

    o Description of the Site and Larger Context: write a brief, vivid description of

    the setting in the manner of the descriptions of Savannah Georgia and of Sienna

    that I read in class.

    o Supporting activities and Purposes: what is the purpose of the building; were

    there any special requirements that influenced the organization of the building;

    does the building go beyond initial accommodation of purpose to suggest other


    o Responding to Context: choose the 5 principles that had the strongest influence

    on the design and explain why.

    o Establishing Longevity: discuss the building with regards to the following


    § Spatial Dualities

    § The in-between Domain

    § Support for Interaction and Retreat

    § Achieving Clarity and Wholeness: identify the unifying strategy(ies) that help

    to organize the building and explain how it does so.

    § Integrating Construction: Discuss how the building is made—its structure, its

    materials, and the special role that exposed structure may have played in the

    articulation of the building.

    § 15 Principles of Wholeness: From The Nature of Order, identify five principles

    (out of the 15 elaborated on pages 145-234) that the room exemplifies and

    describe how the principles deepen our experience of the room.

    § Bibliography and Footnotes

    Be specific and illustrative in your analysis. Floor plans, building sections, site plans, context photos,

    exterior and interior photographs, building elevation drawings, process drawings and in-progress

    construction pictures are all important. Integrate this visual information throughout the text as

    illustrations and evidence of your analysis. The more visual information you provide the easier it will

    be to understand your analysis. BE SURE TO CITE ALL SOURCES (quotes, content, and images).

    Also, diagrams, sketches, detailed photographs, quotes from the architect or from knowledgeable

    users are important. The writing should be clear, specific, and evocative. Refer to The Elements of

    Style by Strunk and White for guidance on good writing.
