Welcome to the Academics weekly assignment for the week of May 1st, 2022! These weekly assignments will give our Professors the ability to showcase some of their lesson ideas here on the website. Each assignment will be posted for a week, in which everyone will be able to read about the topic and respond to the assignment prompt. This week's assignment is "Magical Architecture - Hogsworth" created by Arne (tqrpiar).
The assignment is as follows:
Hogsworth was built many, many years ago, and therefore has an architectural style that we don’t see that often anymore. The castle carries a mixture of Mediaeval Gothic and Norman Romanesque.
Some important aspects of Mediaeval Gothic are pointed arches, large (stained) glass windows and something called rib vaults! Rib vaults is an arched form that gets created where intersections of roofs meet.
An example of Mediaeval Gothic:
Then, Norman Romanesque has two main characteristics; semi-circular arches combined with cylindrical pillars!
An example of Norman Romanesque:
Out of the two different architectural styles, which one is your favourite and why? Is there a style you feel like Hogsworth should explore in? Feel more than free to include a picture of your favourite spot with this style in the school!
