Italy Travel Sketches
Learning architectural history in situ is one method of gaining experiential knowledge. We took a group of graduate and undergraduate architecture students to Florence and Rome, Italy to get a glimpse of history in its context.
We required them to sketch throughout the trip to help enrich their understanding of Itailian pallazzos, Gothic and Renaissance architecture, ecclesiastical design shifts from the Classical temple to the Baroque church, and the engineering feats of ancient Roman arches and domes. Below are a few of my own travel sketches, analyses, photos, and observations.
