• What is your impression of the city within those walls? In which direction have buildings grown b/c of the city’s confinement within these walls? • What sort of opportunities did the glacis offer urban planners? Source 2 • What kind of housing did such a street seem to offer? What do you think the population density in such a neighborhood would have been? • Consider health conditions. How much sunlight probably reached the residences on this street? Given the cities lack of sewers in the early 19th century, what function do you think the central gutter performed? • Why do you think such a street would offend your senses and prove unhealthful? Source 3 • Why do you think the workshops were built along Bievre? What sort of health impact do you suppose these workshops had? Source 4 • Does the Ringstrasse, which intermingled new apartment buildings with both public and commercial buildings, seem to have certain functional zones? Why might you conclude that commerce occupied one zone? • Moving along the Ringstrasse, what sort of functional change do you observe at the area’s first building, the Votivkirche, a church built in the 1850’s in thanksgiving for the emperor’s escape from an assassination attempt? What sorts of institutions surround the Hofburg, or imperial palace?

Source 5 • Do you find any harmony of architectural styles in the public buildings? • Why do you think architects adopted classical Greek architecture for the houses of Parliament? • Why might they have adopted Gothic architecture for the city hall? Do you think such tactics heightened the sense of different functional zones within the Ringstrasse?

    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.
