ASSIGNMENT UNIT SEVEN Your Name Kiara Almonte ID Number 11001739 Your TA Eve S. Date 4/30/15 ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION Like all of the assignments in this course, this one requires you to apply what you have learned to the world in which you live. To appreciate art, you have to see it around you! Not all art is in museums. The vast majority is out in the world. This course consistently models how to analyze works of art and architecture for their function and meaning in context as well as their form and materials . You will demonstrate your mastery of course content by applying this approach to works from your community. In this case, you will apply what you have learned about Islamic Art and Architecture in Spain to your dream palace. Much like we considered how the Moorish rulers created a palace that embodied their public image and political propaganda, you will create a palace for yourself that embodies the ideas and beliefs of modern Americans. You will compare your findings to what you learned about the Alhambra Palace.

To do so, you will draw and analyze the Function and Meaning in Context and the Form and Materials of what you design. If you have already built a palace, you may use that. But most of you will need to design one, providing drawings of the plan (including the grounds) and façade. You will also choose a work of art to hang on the walls in support of your symbolic program. The Moors of Spain liked to fill their halls with floral motifs and geometric patterns. What will you use? It can be challenging to analyze your own community. Don’t assume that your reader understands much about life in modern America. Explain thoroughly how the sites and objects represent our culture and ideas. In this case, how do we communicate power through our homes? ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS 1. Use Photoshop, Paint, or even pencil and paper (and a cell phone camera) to draw the plan (including the grounds) and façade view of your palace.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
