The question can be interpreted in a very straightforward manner by stating that the architects on the renaissance were better at designing and constructing and subsequently became more popular and famous. Even though that was a big contributor to the success of the renaissance I do not believe in just that, I believe that it is up to the knowledge and interest of the general public and intellectual advancement through generations, which helps develop a major sense of aesthetics and interest in the world around them.

Along with the Cathedral’s dome, Brunelleschi was known for his magnificent inventions and arcthecural designs. In the process of marking his legacy, Brunelleschi was challenged socially and politically by rival artist and patrons of his time. Despite countless obstacles, Brunelleschi was a man that thrives in challenging situations. The secretive nature of Brunelleschi had made both his personal life and the engineering of the dome a mystery.

“THE GENERATORS OF CITY DIVERSITY” BY JANE JACOBS Phạm Nguyên Thảo Student ID: 14510673775 Urban planning plays an important role in city life, especially in a dynamic economy and environment of the city nowadays. Because of the rise in number of crime, pollution, traffic jam,…, many cities are looking for new solutions to deal with these ever growing problems. In the past, many urban planners tried to create perfect cities to completely replace the old cities, for example Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City, or Le Corbusier’s Radiant City. Nevertheless, recent planning has switched from strict building codes and grand schemes, to a more community-based approach that focuses on improving community life and the environment in which people live in. Besides, developing cities also face the threat of losing their diversity and identities.
The evolution of architectural drawing was heavily influenced with the start of the ‘Palladian’ style. This stemmed from both the text and visual contributions of Andrea Palladio, an architect who gained fame mainly due to his publication of The Four Books on Architecture. The series was published in 1570, gaining world wide recognition quickly for their genius even today. Although his physical villas standing still in Vicenza are lesser known than his drawings, they became inspirations for generations of architecture to come. Palladio had a unique and detailed drawing style, coupled with an influence from Roman orders and architectural values which helped form his recognizable style.
In some design works, the Gothic style is mainly used as inspiration to create unnatural creatures with masculine, forceful, tough, gloomy, sinister, and mysterious traits.” Many modern-day logos are inspired from gothic architecture and we don't even realize it.

Gothic architecture is a very important type of art that changed how the world works today. Many people don’t realize how much effort and time that these types of buildings took to complete.
The scientific, technical, and even artistic advances that highlighted the advent of the modern world in Europe instilled in many people a faith in progress, a belief that life on earth could be far more worthwhile, satisfying and progressive. However, before people could actually enjoy the fruits of progress, society itself would have to be reordered to undo the old ways of life that stunted advancement, especially when they prevented imaginative and dynamic individuals from using their energies and resourcefulness to improve life for themselves and others around them. And so such establishments that endorsed the old ways of life—eg. the Roman Catholic Church and the trade and industry world of feudalism—came under attack from those who sought to free individuals to make the most of themselves in a new world of opportunity, progress and reason. This attack took a number of forms, including the philosophical movement known as the Enlightenment giving birth to ideologies such as liberalism and romanticism.

Research Title: The Reflection of Sublime in Antihero Culture Since the ancient times, great works centering on heroes have been endlessly emerging in literature. However, due to the proceeding of time and the changes of people’s beauty-appreciation, works centering on antiheroes have been increasingly attracting people and winning a lot recognition.
