STUDY DAY - 2000 YEARS OF EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURE - AN ENGINEERS' PERSPESPECTIVE

Welcome to The Arts Society Pewsey Vale
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 -
10:30 to 15:30
Rushall & Charlton St. Peter Village Hall
The Street, Rushall, Nr. Pewsey SN9 6EN

Superb day covering architecture of the classical period, medieval period and Renaissance & Revival 

The day will be in three sessions:

Session 1: Classical Period: Ancient Greek and Roman domination resulting in the five orders of architecture. 

Session 2: Medieval Period: Byzantine style gives way to truly pan - European "Romanesque'.  Then Western European builders discovered the pointed arch and the Gothic style was established.

Session 3: Renaissance and Revival:  Return of classical Paladin, Baroque and Rococo.  Upheaval of 17/18C and Industrial revolution bought newer styles.
