our essay should begin with a general description of the structure you have chosen to write about. For this section of your essay, follow the same guidelines of the formal analysis assignment. When describing the structure, take into account formal elements for example, shape, line, color, scale, pattern, symmetry.
For the next section of your essay, link a specific architectural element or elements from your chosen structure to one covered in the 2 modules on Architecture. Use and define specific key terms associated with this element or elements (pediment, Doric order, post-and-lintel etc). Your essay should also address whether or not the architectural elements from the modern structure serve a similar function to the historical one. Do they have the same meaning? Does your chosen structure “fit” into its modern environment?
Grace Cathedral in San Francisco is an excellent example of Gothic architecture in the bay area.
