Pick a church in your neighborhood that is in the Gothic or the Romanesque style, or one clearly inspired by earlier Gothic or Romanesque architecture. To the extent that you’re able to, make a drawing of the ground plan–the part used for worship, not the entire building complex. Label the parts of the building on your ground plan, using the vocabulary we’ve studied in class. Then study the building carefully, and make drawings or take photos of the walls, ceiling, the front of the church, and the exterior. The photos don’t need to be great—your cell phone is more than adequate for the job. When you have studied the church building carefully, take your drawings, photos and notes home. If “your” church is in the Gothic style, compare it to Chartres Cathedral. If it is in the Romanesque style, compare it to St. Sernin. As you write your comparison, be sure to cover these issues: Using the correct vocabulary that is in the class notes–and additional vocabulary in our textbook: How does the church in your neighborhood resemble–and differ from–Chartres, or St Sernin? Did the architect imitate some things but radically change others? Leafing through our textbook, is there a church illustrated that is closer to the one in your neighborhood? If so, which church in our textbook, and in what way—and what is the page number and edition of your textbook? Textbook is Gardner’s Art through the Ages A Global History
