Learning Team Assignment: Evolution of Architecture Presentation
Each team member will locate examples of everyday buildings in his or her state’s capital or nearest large city by taking a trip down the main street of your town or city. Everyday buildings include schools, office buildings, churches, libraries, hotels, and banks. As an alternative, you may research the Internet for examples.
THE TEAM will Prepare a 5- to 10-minute Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation WITH NOTES identifying the styles of banks, apartments, office buildings, stores, schools, and hotels in your town using the images gathered by team members. Building styles include Beaux Arts, Art Deco, International, and Postmodern. The team may not find examples of all styles, but identify as many as possible. Include the images in your presentation. If possible, include the year the buildings were built and the architects. Address the following in your presentation:
· How the architecture in your area was influenced by industry and technology
· How these buildings follow the development of the American industrial–commercial financial complex
· How the styles of the buildings evolved over the years and why they might have changed
Present your Team Presentation by posting in the MAIN Forum to allow everyone to benefit from your experience.
Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines (properly citing within the notes section ALL sources) and include a slide with all references.
