As I realized that I would have to cover a chapter on Architecture as part of my “Introduction to Fine Arts Class,” I couldn’t help but laugh. This is going to be a short lecture, I chuckled to myself. But the more I studied architecture, the more fascinating it became to me. I found myself viewing the world around me – and the many passages of Scripture which use architectural terms – in a whole new way. Consider the following quote: »

An architecture graveyard can teach you and I a few important lessons about life. Though I grew up running around graveyards and casket rooms in my father’s mortuary, most normal people I know prefer not to visit any kind of graveyard. So it was only until last week when my daughter Ellie and I visited Cal Poly’s “architecture graveyard” while on a tour of the campus. Ellie was recently accepted into the SLO School of Arch»

Last semester, I was responsible for more than one existential crisis, I fear. If you’ve followed this blog for any period of time, you know that I don’t only enjoy confusing my students, I feel that it’s essential to their education.

For me, one of the great tragedies of modern life is that one can visit a cathedral and not be moved. We visit these grand places of worship, marvel at the architecture, admire the artworks and look at the pretty flickering candles but feel little more than admiration. I have experienced this many a time. But not at the Sacre-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, Paris. More

I recently started pursuing my master’s degree in architecture through an online program. One of the requirements is an occasional video chat. To get properly prepared and equipped for this endeavor, I also upgraded my home computer to one with a much larger screen (27″ iMac). The idea was that I could push the display further back on my desk so that I could lay drawings in front of the screen to work on. This worked very well until I started»

Recently I had the opportunity to go with a group of students on a tour of the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX (home of the Dallas Cowboys). More than just a sports arena, this symbol of Texas culture is a massive and decadent display of unique architecture and design. Our tour guide was both knowledgeable and friendly, filling us in on the history of the stadium and the Cowboys franchise and pointing out details in the structure and design of the»
