Image 1-6: Our professor gave us a lecture of modern architectures in Europe countries at this Tuesday class. At first, he explained the church of San Giovanni Battista in Limite, which is called “Chiesa dell’ Autostorada (the motorway church). Due to the wired location, the name of church was given, but also this church has quite modern and unique look comparing with other traditional gothic or medieval churches in Italy. The layout has many free spaces, and the architectural features are the external structure and the color. The curvilinear structure creates the unique movement, and the original appearance as the copper has been oxidated over time and has a gray-ish green colors. If I had a chance, I would like to see the church while I stay in Firenze. Other unique buildings are La Casa Batllo by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, and the Musee d’Orsay by Gae Ailenti, Victor Laloux, and Emile Benard in Paris. La Casa Batllo was used to be an apartment. The curvy appearance and the various color and material uses create the unique look. The Musee d’Orsay was a one of three main stations in Paris. The architects and designers renovated the inside and made exhibition spaces. You can see they remain the style of windows and entrance at there, which still tells people the history at the Musee.
Image 7-12: I have been to the church of San Miniato al Monte on this Friday ArtVisit. It was built between the 11th to 13th century. The exterior has the similar style as the Facades of the Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella, which has green and white marble in geometric patterns.
The interior has Romanesque and Visantin styles at the walls and ceilings, and decorations.
The fresco painting was created by Taddeo Gaddi. For visitors’ sake, it is built even higher up than the Piazzale Michelangelo. So we got to see the beautiful view of Firenze, especially at the evening.
