Last Christmas, I had the opportunity to experience the fireworks show in Disney World. The theme park’s magic and wonder fascinated me and thus compelled me to choose Gehry’s Walt Disney Concert Hall as my building of study. Both its exterior and interior uphold a quote mentioned in Professor Speck’s lecture by Abbot Suger, “Man reaches contemplation of divine through the senses.” In other words, an individual is able to understand a deeper meaning through use of the five senses. Therefore, every person that passes this building goes through a unique experience when his/her eyes first detect the building. Author Rasmussen’s book Experiencing Architecture further elaborates on this architectural experience by emphasizing “You must observe how it was designed for a special

It was not just one single man who came up with the sport. When men from Europe came to North America they noticed that the natives were playing lacrosse which was very similar to their games back home and they used some of the principles of lacrosse in the creation of hockey. Another man who played a huge role in the creation of hockey was from Nova Scotia. His name was James Creighton and he brought all of his knowledge of ice hockey into Montreal, Canada where the first ever organized hockey game as we know it today was played. This man also decided that he wanted to try to play hockey indoors at the local ice skating rink, but he was scared that the ball would fly out of the rink and hurt somebody, so they took the cork bung from a beer barrel which was shaped like the hockey pucks we use today.
Music is a useful tool in indicating a certain era, an example of this is in The Great Gatsby where the music played at the party scenes is very much based on the music of the 1920’s. Although is seems basic and obvious due to the costume and setting, this helps communicate to the viewer the fact that although filmed in the present, the film is actually set in the 1920’s. Ideology, semiotics and aesthetics all feed into each other. Without semiotics and aesthetics the ideas of the director and writer could not be portrayed successfully. They are fundamental in creating the ideological world of the

A Canadian born artist Franklin Carmichael demonstrates the beauty of the beautiful northern Ontario landscape in his serigraph “White Falls.” Carmichael used a relatively unpopu- lar medium for the time period (Andy Warhol would popularize this method in the 1960s with his piece “Maryilyn Monroe”). Although serigraphy has been used for centuries, it was only during the 1900s that photo reactive chemicals were being invent- ed to create a photo reactive stencil. Despite the challeng- es, Carmichael successfully creates the tranquil look he desires with the silkscreen method. Using a stencil and over five colors, Carmichael labors over a piece that is both time intensive and difficult. Believing that being connected with nature was essential, “White Falls” was a piece that continued to focus on the tranquility of Canada’s beautiful scenery.
Mr. Blackshaw had discovered Blackstone Lake and liked it. Just before the WWII he purchased a small peninsula from the Armstrong farm with a good view of the lake. There also was the road passing just 300 m to the north if he could get road allowance permission — and that would grow into an enduring issue to many of the ensuing owners. At the time of purchase Orville was a retail salesman on his way to being an assistant manager in Toronto. He was born in Leith beside Owen Sound, where his great-grandfather, Samuel, had landed from England in 1838.
The Nightingale Concert Hall provided great acoustics for the performances and fit well with the overall style of the concert. With this hall being a decent size, the music really amplified through the venue. I felt as if I was listening to a recorded version of the performances, that’s how good it was. The audience must have felt the same way I did about the performances because at the end of the concert the musicians received a standing

If I could go back in time, I would like to ask him how he became interested in TB and rehabilitation aspect of WWI. Since he was an architect, it seemed like a big jump to a medical field. He would probably respond that he became interested while he was teaching in Canada and as a influence of a war stricken world. I believe that he would be ecstatic about all
It is a marvelous fairy tale of a hideous ogre finding true love despite of his physical appearance. When we arrived at the Pam Ware Performing Arts Center of Gainesville High School we were in awe with the eloquent building brick design. As we went in, we noticed the proscenium stage in front of us in addition to the orchestra pit. The orchestra pit location rested just in front and below the stage. Since our seats were just a few rows from the center of the stage, my son and I had a delightful view of the orchestra.
