After visiting Frederik Meijer Gardens a few times, my overall favorite thing there would have to be the Japanese Garden. This is my favorite because of the unique design, and the way it made you feel and think about things. I think that this garden will only continue to mature and it will be a focus at its venue. I can honestly say that after seeing the Japanese Garden I will forever make sure to look at plants and sculptures and see the small details that make this garden so
Fairness and justice in procedures are only virtues that can reasonably be considered as setting norms to be universally respected. Institutions are set for just procedures of conflict resolution and they are formed by recognized customs and habits which harden into specific rules of procedure within the various institutions. Fairness in advocacy is different from fairness in adjudication. (Hampshire,
Leopold’s book holds true on this point and focuses on the attitudes and ideas on the American landscape. Throughout the book, the idea of valuing and having a better attitude towards the environment is a main concept. Just from reading the first couple of pages of the book you can sense that Leopold has a great attitude towards the environment and knows so much about the American landscape. Another point under the course objective is the aesthetics of environments. Anyone who has gotten the pleasure of reading “A Sand County Almanac” knows that the book dwells deep into the aesthetics of environments.
1. They used undisguised natural materials from the local environment, such as redwood, cedar, and oak, as well as brick and stone (or as Maybeck often put it, they employed “open use of natural materials, honestly stated”). 2.They combined historic motifs, such as Gothic arches or Palladian windows, and traditional craftsmanship, with modern building materials and construction methods, such as reinforced concrete, asbestos siding and plate glass windows. 3. Each building was a unique design in itself, an original work of art that fulfilled the specific needs of the client, and the community it was a part of.
In philosophy it is used to focus on the individual’s conscious, perceptual and intellectual processes, excluding preconceptions and the idea of external consequences (Gregory, 1987). Phenomenology is a philosophical method aimed at getting at the truth - it aims to achieve clarity of insight and thought while including the subject. It makes a distinction between appearance and essence. It is a very appropriate philosophical method to apply to the theory and practice of art therapy. (Carpendale, 2003) Merleau-Ponty, the French philosopher, writes that philosophy is “not the reflection of a pre-existing truth, but, like art, the act of bringing truth into being.” (Merleau-Ponty, 1969) Betensky (1995) wrote "phenomenology offers an answer to a long needed unbiased approach to art therapy in all its spheres: theory, training, and professional practice.” She articulates the importance of 'seeing ' and suggests that this is art therapy 's most important contribution to general therapy and even to phenomenology itself, because art therapy pays attention to the authentic experience in two ways.
In the imperial Hotel, he applied some of his principles of using nature such as using sunlight to illuminate building interiors. He therefore emphasized on the wall and window designs. The Imperial Hotel, housed in a skyscraper, was made in an organic form that resembled a tree. This time, nature played two roles; he used a tree form to design a skyscraper, and second, he sought to use nature to distinguish American architecture on foreign soil. The Imperial Hotel, after its completion, furthered the amusement of other architects.
Mr. Tilton chimed in that when dealing with a tight lot there has to be compromise, you can’t get everything. Ms. Raymond agreed and commented that if you can build a house that will meet the setbacks without the variance then there is no grounds for hardship. Mr. Diener agreed said that you have to work with what’s there and understand the limitations of your property. Mr. Catapano responded that the lot was approved prior to the primary building setback and he did not think that conforming to that setback provided an overall layout that was best for the
When you look at both Degas’ landscape as well as Hiroshige’s, it is easy to see their similarities. Similar color palettes are used as well as subject matter. Degas was a painter that expressed himself best in line and color, therefore, it is simple to discern why he was so drawn to Ukiyo-e woodcuts (Ives
For example, when building a house, we first design a blueprint taking into account possible shortcomings. In doing so, we ensure that the end product is well designed and fully functional. The same goes for any scientific experiment. We know what we aim to achieve and plan accordingly. This method of thinking however, lacks depth in that we never contemplate the meaning underlying our behavior; it does not help us understand ourselves or our place in the world.
Architects, painters and sculptors must learn a new way of seeing and understanding the composite character of the building, both as a totality and in terms of its parts. Their work will then re-imbue itself with the spirit of architecture, which it lost in salon art. ', the main purpose of the Bauhaus was to discard the unnecessary and keep its principles against the art nouveau, decoration and
Epictetus’s way of philosophy is one that is purely Stoic, imploring that the solution to human finitude is one where humans can live life without showing feeling or complaining about pain and hardships towards unsavory situations. Each of his rules in his handbook offers advice in which the subject simply “deals” with disappointment, or rather, doesn’t expect something out of the scopes of reason and logic, so that, figuratively, when occurrences don’t go their way, they aren’t disappointed. This is because to Epictetus, all external events in life are pre-determined by fate, so it’s already out of our hands from the beginning. With a calm dispassion, or indifference, we approach our fate and accept it. This is shown in his rules in The Handbook,
In William Brennan’s view on the American Constitution he focused on human dignity to determine his interpretation. As he states in his essay, “But we are an aspiring people, a people with faith in progress. Our amended Constitution is the lodestar for our aspirations. Like every text worth reading, it is not crystalline.” (Brennan). Brennan believed that all important reading such as the Constitution require the reader to go much more in depth rather than to just scratch the surface of the text.
