It had always been Mies’ dream to produce architecture of ‘almost nothing’ through buildings with the same minimal quality as the most elemental drawing. To him, architecture is about achieving the maximum effect using the minimum of apparent means. The Barcelona Pavilion is an excellent example of punctuated emptiness and lightness through immateriality as an architectural material. The contradiction here lies in Mies’ use of finely wrought materials to create a space of almost nothing. A common understanding would be that materials do not matter much in architecture of ethereal nature, and that the use of least obtrusive materials would be the design strategy.
Florence is home to some of the greatest artistic minds that the world has ever seen. And even if artists were not native Florentines, more often than not they came to this great city to study at some point in their lives. One of the greats of the Renaissance was Leonardo da Vinci and even now, over 500 years later, his works of art are still relevant. Born in the small Tuscan town of Vinci in the year 1452, da Vinci began studying art at a very young age (Jastifer 281). Da Vinci’s father Piero recognized his talents as a child and in the 1460s Piero brought his son into Florence to study art and join the schooling of Andrea Verrocchio.
The Renaissance was the greatest explosion of arts and technical innovative ideas in the history of Europe. Renaissance is known to be the French word for “rebirth” which was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th to the 17th century. In those days there were two Renaissance men who towered above the rest, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Emerging as supreme, Leonardo da Vinci was described as an archetype of the “Renaissance Man” (The Complete Works). He excelled in many fields such as science, inventing, drawing, painting and sculpturing but unfortunately he was not formally educated (Biography Leonardo da Vinci, 2016).
