Event description

Description

As architecture evolved from a basic need for shelter and security, it became an artistic craft that activated our thoughts, emotions, and desires for an expression of beauty. The success of an outdoor space or a building interior depends on the visual relationship that is formed between parts and patterns and one’s perception of them. What holds our attraction to some forms of architecture over others? Why does this appeal remain as civilization advances? By comparing the Parthenon in Athens, Greece and the S.R. Crown Hall in Chicago, Illinois, this symposium will expand on the ideas and themes of these structures through the lens of architectural vocabulary and cognitive science, providing insight into the understanding of ancient and modern architecture and behavior.
