Frank Boucher was some Ranger player in my opinion. He was an “Original Ranger”. Among all of the “Original Rangers”, not even Lester Patrick, stayed a Ranger for as long as he did. He contributed 31 years to hockey. He was a club player from 1926 to 1938, was a coach from 1939 to 1948, and was a general manager from 1946 to 1955.
Robert Marion La Follette was born on June 14, 1885 in Primrose, Wisconsin. Nicknamed Fighting Bob and Battling Bob, La Follette attended the University of Wisconsin from 1875-1879 and after he graduated he became the county district attorney from 1880-1884. During his time as a district attorney La Follette married his college sweetheart, Belle Case on December 31, 1881. La Follette was elected as a congressman for the southwest area of Wisconsin. As congressman, La Follette often voted against the majority and the party bosses. During his reelection in 1890, La Follette lost drastically and decided to go to Madison, Wisconsin to practice law. From these experiences La Follette became a popular leader due to his personality; he was outgoing and was an eloquent public speaker.
The eighteenth-century city was a place in which actual physical space was subjected to a complex mental layering of conceptual spaces, focusing on the design theory of architects as Boullee and Durand, with his charts. Which legacy was continued later on through the architecture of Paul Philippe Cret, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn, some of the most outstanding modern architects of 18th-19th century. Furthermore, distinctive features of neoclassicism and outlines
A few months ago, Vincent Falcone came across a video game that changed his life for the better. This game was free to download and its name is FORTNITE. Vincent had fallen in love with this video game more than he loves his own parents. The game sometimes annoys him because of people that don’t know how to play properly and this causes Vince to lose his chance at achieving a #1 VICTORY ROYALE. Here are the rules that help relieve his annoyance of other players.
On the other hand, theorist Pierre Bourdieu posits that, perceived burdensome character, which generates inferiority, happens to be a major drive to commitment of suicide. When people feel that they are inferior, they lack a sense of belonging and start to either try to fit in or seclude themselves. Pierre argues that, human’s social space is determined by their economical capital and cultural capital (Bourdieu slide 3). This can be determined using different point of views although they have similar general opinions to the public. Economical capital and cultural capital are major factors used in the society to determine on one’s social space and influence to others (Bourdieu slide 4). If these factors are not considered, individuals end up feeling that they are becoming burdensome to the society. This therefore happens to create social stratifications (Tony par 52). As discussed earlier, using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, some end up being at the self-actualization level while others seeking for basic needs. The creation of this hierarchy brings about different kinds of
Lacoste is one of the oldest clothing products. Lacoste is the story of a tennis legend whose inventions changed the entire sport and revolutionized the clothing industry forever. The legend of tennis is Rene Lacoste. Since 1926-1927 he started to make the resolution to the sport clothing industry. The tagline of Lacoste’s product is life is beautiful sports. First product that he made was a polo shirt with an alligator embroiders in left side of the shirt. The alligator becomes forever logo of Lacoste’s product because of his nickname when played tennis. Lacoste’s strength is similar like an alligator said one of newsperson at that time (1926-1927). Based on website www.smithsonianmag.com.
Étienne-Louis Boullée wanted to be a painter and ended up studying architecture at Jacques-François Blondel’s school, owing to parental pressure. His book contains the key to the understanding of architecture drawing, namely Newton's cenotaph.
However the flourishing career Breuer was expectant as an architect was late to come. Finally in 1932, following 4 years, the famous manufacturer P. Harnischmacher gave him the commission to project his new house in Wiesbaden. Breuer’s project immediately showed a very personal recognized language, totally rational with the art vocabulary which he was adopting in design.
The French architect, Jules Hardouin-Mansart, was born on April 16, 1646, in Paris, France and was the son of a painter. He was also a relative of Francois Mansart, a famous architect that was known as the “God of architecture.” Because his relative was a famous architect as well, he decided to take the name and eventually became Jules Hardouin-Mansart. J.H. Mansart studied under his relative who left him all of his drawings of floorplans and designs after his passing, but also under Liberal Bruant, the original designer of Les Invalides in Paris, the royal hospital. The use of his name helped assist in promoting his architectural career during the 18th century in
The most persuasive of Le Corbusier’s work is his document proposals of the five points of modern architecture in an industrialized world in 1926. The five points of the Le Corbusier is a manifest of
Paris today is known as a center of arts and rich culture both acclaimed and original. Famous moments pop up through the history of France’s art, such as the impressionistic artworks by Monet, the École des Beaux-Arts teachings of classicism, and the iconic Eiffel Tower by Stephen Sauvestre. Paris augments itself with numerous museums to catalog countless masterpieces and sculptures throughout France’s enduring, yet sometimes gritty, history. As a whole, Paris comprises of a mixture between historic architectural themes like rusticated brick clad, mansard roofs, striated columns, and a modern day architectural themes like engineered metalwork, and external program support machinery. The notion of classic French architecture, juxtaposed
“Minimalism, here, does not stand for a reduction of means, but rather an amplification of means that have their starting point in a reduced syntax”, Perrault, (1999). However, his works are constantly influenced by project location’s geography and based on the appliance of geometry as a planning instrument. It can clearly be seen in the design of the French National Library - in order to save and redeem the place that is built to the scale of the capital, National Library of France was designed to introduce generous free open space and volume (Perrault, 1999). It is materialised by four tall towers, defining the boundaries of an esplanade. These structures propose a voluminous verticality that defines the poetry of the complex. Furthermore, the four corner towers resemble four open books, all facing one another, they present a symbolic place by imposing the library’s identity on the urban landmarks. They develop and enhance the idea of the four beacons that invite and attract attention to the space. The towers present themselves as an ongoing process of learning and developing of knowledge and identify this space as cultural treasure (Perrault, 1999).
The five principles of architecture that Le Corbusier proposed in 1923 can be noted in, not only Le Corbusier’s work, but also in other modern architecture, because each principle contributes to the overall aesthetic of the building, as well as providing a functional use. However, all five principles don’t have to be incorporated into one design, which is what this essay will explore. It will attempt to show that one principle can prevail over the other four, but all five are needed to create a full representation of Le Corbusier’s envision of architecture. This is shown through Le Corbusier’s villas, specifically the Villa Shodhan and this essay will analyse how the principles contrast against one another. Furthermore, a small scale design project will be created alongside the essay in an attempt to produce a unique villa through the embodiment of Le Corbusier’s five principles of architecture. Through further analysis of the Villa Shodhan I will also argue that not all principles are independent and that some principles can function efficiently without the rest. Nonetheless, Le Corbusier’s most renowned villa, Villa Savoye, utilizes all five principles; therefore, it is the most accurate image of Le Corbusier’s five principles of architecture. However, after this villa had been completed it became clear that the flat roof, which served a domestic purpose as a roof garden had failed
One of the important moments in the history of modern architecture is the International competition for designing the League of Nations Palace in Geneva in 1927. Architectures were helpless to design this building; this new modern organization needed the new space for work and meetings. Of the 337 projects submitted, only the work of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret stood out (Fig.3). This was an evaluation of Le Corbusier’s ability and modern architecture to create a major international project. Although his design was never built, it was the first testimony of modern architecture for a new public place.
