L'Impresa di Fiume consistette nella ribellione di alcuni reparti del Regio Esercito (circa 2 600 uomini tra fanteria e artiglieria) al fine di occupare la città adriatica di Fiume, contesa tra il Regno d'Italia e il Regno di Jugoslavia. Organizzata da un fronte politico a prevalenza nazionalista e guidata dal poeta Gabriele D'Annunzio, la spedizione raggiunse Fiume il 12 settembre 1919, proclamandone l'annessione al Regno d'Italia. L'occupazione dei legionari dannunziani durò 16 mesi con alterne vicende, tra cui la proclamazione della Reggenza italiana del Carnaro. Avendo lo scopo di influire sulla Conferenza internazionale della pace, l'Impresa fiumana raggiunse l'epilogo con l'approvazione del Trattato di Rapallo. L'opposizione dei dannunziani all'applicazione del trattato portò il governo Giolitti ad intervenire con la forza, sgombrando Fiume durante le giornate del Natale 1920. Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, durante il periodo della sua presenza a Fiume nel settembre 1919, definì gli autori dell'impresa disertori in avanti. A Fiume, già ad aprile 1919 Giovanni Host-Venturi e Giovanni Giuriati avevano iniziato a creare una Legione fiumana costituita da volontari per difendere la città in particolare dal contingente francese, filo-jugoslavo. Nel frattempo Gabriele D'Annunzio si era recato a Roma per tenere una serie di comizi in favore dell'italianità di Fiume. I discorsi infuocati di D'Annunzio suscitarono l'emozione soprattutto dei moltissimi giovani reduci che ritornati dalla guerra erano rimasti disoccupati.In particolare si insistette sull'onta della vittoria mutilata che induceva un revanscismo delle aspettative di carattere nazionalista. Intanto a Fiume la situazione diveniva sempre più incandescente e si susseguivano costantemente manifestazioni della popolazione a favore dell'italianità della città e incidenti tra i vari reparti delle quattro nazioni che al termine del conflitto avevano occupato la città (italiani, francesi, inglesi, americani). Il 29 giugno scoppiarono tumulti fra i militari francesi, i cui ufficiali avevano osato strappare il tricolore italiano appuntato sulle vesti delle donne fiumane, e la popolazione civile ⬇️ Continua sotto ⬇️

Without the large group of sculpture at the corner, Palau de la Música Catalana can be Palau de la Música Catalana? No! It would be almost like a shell without a soul. Lluís Domènech i Montaner(1850 - 1923)'s building is one with Miguel Blay y Fàbregas(1866 - 1936)'s sculpture. Adolf Loos(1870-1933) once said "Ornament is crime(1908/1913)" and still many architects talk/think/design like it is. So ornament is crime? Maybe decoration is, not ornament. Ornament is not decoration. Decoration is secondary as ornament is essential. Decoration is something added to design as ornament is a part of design. Decoration can be taken out without compromising design intention as ornament can't be! . Modernist architecture waged a war against ornament, and didn't bother to distinguish between ornament and decoration. Modernisme català shows us an alternative way of Modernism. Modernism full of narrative. . 카탈란 음악당의 코너 조각이 없다면 과연 카탈란 음악당일까? 아마도 영혼 없는 껍데기에 불과할듯. 미구엘 블라이의 조각은 도메네크의 건축과 한 몸이다. 20세기 초반 "장식은 죄악이다"라고 주장했던 아돌프 로스의 말을, 아직도 따르는 건축가들이 적지않다. 그렇다면 과연 장식은 죄악인가? 장식으로 같이 번역되곤 하는 Decoration과 Ornament를 먼저 구분해야한다. 데코레이션이 부차적인 것이라면, 오너먼트는 본질적이다. 데코레이션을 제거해도 디자인 의도를 훼손하지 않지만, 어너먼트를 제거하면 전혀 다른 디자인이 되어버린다. 무차별적으로 장식에 전쟁을 선포한 모더니즘 건축은 그것이 부차적인지 본질적인지 구분하지 않았다. 카탈란 모더니즘은 또다른 가능성을 보여준다. 이야기가 가득한 그런 모더니즘말이다. #카탈란음악당 #카탈란 #모더니즘 #바르셀로나 #스페인 #스페인여행 #Domnech #catalan #modernism #barcelona #spain #spaintravel #spaintrip #visitbarcelona #architecture #여행사진 #풍경사진 #풍경그램 #travelgram #beautifuldestinations #wanderlust #photography #architecturephotography #건축사진 #현상학 #phenomenology #감동 #건축투어 #architecturetheory #historyofarchitecture

Fall is just around the corner and you know what that means? Exactly, the orange and teal summer color grade is no longer acceptable and I could go to jail for posting pictures with it. I am, of course, kidding about the latter and I will go to my room to think about a better joke to tell next time. Time flies and, I was told, heals all wounds but we'll see how long it will take for you to recover from yet another bad joke. Enjoy your day and read a thing or two about the Croatian National Theatre if you still want to. 😊 . The Croatian National Theater in Zagreb is the central and oldest theater institution in Croatia, with three ensembles: opera, drama and ballet. . Construction of the theater began in 1894. The idea to build a more equipped theater appeared in 1871 but nothing had been done until the earthquake hit Zagreb in 1880. . On the 14th of October 1895 the theatre with 750ish seats was opened. The Neo-Baroque building is a masterpiece of the late historicism of the Austrian architect Ferdinand Fellner and German architect Hermann Helmer. . The Croatian National Theater in Zagreb is part of the European organizations Opera Europe, the FEDORA platform and the European Theater Convention.

Acrophobia It was very windy up at the acropolis of Aspendos (Belkis) and I was afraid to go any further to take close pictures of the theater. This is the closest I could get 😊🙋‍♀️ ......... The theatre in Aspendos is considered to be the best-preserved theatre of antiquity. The Roman builders of this structure managed to express the state of ideal balance between the auditorium and the skene building and, what's more, the whole theatre matches perfectly into the landscape. The theatre was actually built in the 2nd century AD, during the reign of the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (161-180 AD), on the basis of the project created by Zeno - a Greek architect born in Aspendos. The Greek and Latin inscriptions which are placed above the entrances to the skene building state that two brothers - Curtius Crispinus and Curtius Auspicatus - dedicated this theatre "to the gods of this country and to the Imperial house".

Τhe marble pulpit of the church of Agia Eirini, exquisitely carved by the Brothers Fytali, Lazaros and Georgios, from the island of Tinos. Tinos is the island from which most of the best stoneworkers, sculptors and marble carvers of modern Greece originate. The Fytali bros studied in Athens and Paris and then opened around 1850 one of the first sculptural workshops in Athens which became an apprenticeship school for the next generation of sculptors. The pulpit was executed upon the designs of the architect of the church, Lysandros Kaytantzoglou, around the middle of the 19th century. The church itself, as I've noted before, is an example of harmonious eclectic trends in modern 19th century Greek religious architecture as it combines neoclassical features with neorenaissance and byzantine traits. This genre of churches built around the middle and second half of the 19th century are designated as "othonic", relating to the first King of modern Greece, Otto (hellenised to Othon), who by the way followed mass in this very church. #athens #ig_athens #ig_greece #greekrevival #religiousarchitecture #religious #pulpit #craftsmanship #gilded #orthodoxy #neobyzantine #interior #interiordecoration #greekarchitecture #church #eclecticism #architect #sculptor #sculptural #sculpture #marble #stonecarving #historyofart #historyofarchitecture #19thcentury #belleepoque #findesiecle

EN: Stereobate, in Ancient Greek and Roman architecture, refers to top part of a foundation, just above ground-level, on which a building is constructed. Stylobate describes only the topmost step of the temple's base, while stereobate is used to describe the remaining steps of the platform beneath the stylobate and just above the leveling course. Since columns have no bases in Doric order, they are all placed on the stylobate. The stylobate was often designed to relate closely to the dimensions of other elements of the temple. In Greek Doric temples, the length and width of the stylobate were related, and in some early Doric temples the column height was one third the width of the stylobate. The Romans, following Etruscan architectural tradition, took a different approach in using a much higher stylobate that typically had steps only in the front, leading to the portico. —————————————— TR: Stereobat, Antik Yunan ve Roma mimarisinde, bir binanın yapıldığı yer seviyesinin hemen üzerinde bulunan bir temelin üst kısmını tanımlar. Stylobat, tapınağın tabanının sadece en üst basamağını tarif ederken stereobat, stilobatın altındaki ve düzleştirme alanının hemen üstünde kalan platformun kalan adımlarını tanımlamak için kullanılır. Dor düzeninde sütunlar kaideye sahip olmadıkları için tüm sütunlar stylobat üzerinde durmaktadır. Dor düzenli Yunan tapınaklarında, stylobatın uzunluğu ve genişliği birbiriyle ilişkiliydi ve bazı tapınaklarda sütun yüksekliği, stylobatın genişliğinin üçte biri kadardı. Etrüsk mimari geleneğini takip eden Romalılar, tipik olarak sadece önünde basamakları olup portikoya giden çok daha yüksek bir stylobat kullanarak farklı bir yaklaşım benimsemişlerdir. #art #arthistory #historyofart #kunst #kunstgeschichte #sanat #sanattarihi #mimarlık #mimarlıktarihi #architektur #architecture #historyofarchitecture #architecturalhistory #romanarchitecture #ancientromanarchitecture #greekarchitecture #ancientgreekarchitecture #ancientgreek #ancientgreece #doricorder #stylobate #stereobate #greektemple #romantemple #ancienthistory #geschichte #tarih #history #vitruvius

“Hiding in plain sight” is the perfect description of many stepwells, and the one at Delhi’s popular Red Fort fits the bill: it’s just steps away from all the busy areas crammed with selfie-snapping tourists, but few know of its existence. There’s an often-locked fence at one side and so little above-ground presence you could topple in if looking up, not down. The history is fascinating though the origin is unknown. C. 1400? 1500? 1350?? With dual entries and arched corridors, the British found the stepwell to be an ideal prison for pre-Partition freedom fighters in the 1940’s: look closely at the last photo and you’ll see the bricked-in windows with intact bars. #architecture #architecturephotos #architecturephotography #architect #mymodernmet #architecteye #photographersofindia #stepwells #architectures #architectureheritage #historyofarchitecture #travelphoto #indiatour #architecturehistory #architecturephotos #storiesofindia #photooftheday #adventurers

Eiffelova věž - Gustave Eiffel (1887-1889). Byla postavena k příležitosti 100. výročí Velké francouzské revoluce a Světové výstavy, kterou Paříž v roce 1889 pořádala. Původně měla stát jen 20 let, takže už docela přesluhuje. V době vzniku Pařížané věž nesnášeli, do historického města se podle nich vůbec nehodila a působila jako trn v oku. Spisovatel Guy de Maupassant do věže pravidelně chodil na oběd, protože to dle jeho slov bylo jediné místo, odkud nebyla Eiffelova věž vidět. Dnes už by ale Paříž nebyla Paříží bez Eiffelovky. P.S.: Stopu můžeme najít i v Česku. V r. 1889 byli členové Klubu českých turistů na světové výstavě v Paříži, kde se tak nadchli pohledem na Eiffelovu věž, že se rozhodli vytvořit podobnou dominantu v Praze. A tak vznikla Petřínská rozhledna. #eiffeltower #gustaveeiffel #eiffelovavez #paris #pariz #architecture #historyofarchitecture #architektura #historiearchitektury #art #umeni #historyofart #dejinyumeni #umeniprokazdyden #labyrintumeni

Da Monsta, 1995, Philip Johnson • Philip Johnson was a friend and supporter of both Frank Gehry and Peter Eisenman – the influence of both seems evident in the non-Euclidean form of Da Monsta. However, Johnson claimed that his original inspiration for Da Monsta came from the design for a museum in Dresden by artist and friend Frank Stella. In fact, when Johnson first madea model of this structure, he named it “Dresden Zwei,” or “Dresden Two,” and presented it to Stella. Always steeped in history, Johnson also cited the work of German Expressionist Hermann Finsterlin as a source of inspiration. Finsterlin was known for fantastic designs that stretched the limits of architectural form. German Expressionism, an early twentieth-century movement, had influenced Johnson’s thinking on the architecture of the past. In particular, he claimed his Crystal Cathedral in Southern California was also the outgrowth of re-examining Finsterlin. This building, constructed of modified gunnite, is the closest to Johnson’s thinking about sculpture and form at the end of his life – what he called the “structured warp.” This architectural direction using warped, torqued forms is far from the rectilinear shapes of the International Style. The name of the building is an adaptation of the “monster,” a phrase for the building that resulted from a conversation with architecture critic Herbert Muschamp. Johnson felt the building had the quality of a living thing. • #architect #architecturelovers #architecturephotograpy #philipjohnson #glasshouse #pjglasshouse #newcanaan #newengland #architecture #contemporary #contemporaryart #travel #travelblogger #artblog #arthistory #historyofart #minimal #painting #traveling #design #designer #house #landscape #minimal #artgallery #modernism #gallery #interiordesign #historyofarchitecture

Vitruvius and Ten Books on Architecture The “Ten Books on Architecture” have two dominant themes: the first is that the field of ‘architecture’ covers the entire built and mechanical environment and is an art of great complexity and one of the most essential of the arts of social humanity; the second is that its proper practice depends on the synthetic mastery of a vast range of theoretical and practical knowledge. It is this second point that is most peculiar to the Vitruvian ideal of architecture. It argues that an architect should have not only personal talent and specialized practical knowledge, but should also be broadly educated in liberal arts. - - - - See Bani-Masoud, Amir (2020), Architectural Theory: Fourteen Key Writers on Architecture, from Antiquity to the Present.

Well, that occurred to me in 1965, as I finished the Painting Gallery.

That looked so silly, all the sculpture, big sculpture, being wandered around with wheels on it. That was one reason. The other reason was that I had another idea for a building, which is the usual reason for building a building. In the Sculpture Gallery I had a lot more problems that have nothing to do with art whatsoever but with my whim. So I built another building. I love to build buildings. Everybody does.

So I said I’m human, so let’s build another building.

Evet arkadaşlar, şehir dışında ufak bir işim olduğu için aksadı biraz 😅🙏🏼 Bugün son Romanya paylaşımım olan Corvin Kalesi ile ilgili kısa bir araştırma yaptım :) 🇷🇴 Hunyad/Hunedoara Kalesi olarak bilinen Corvin Kalesi, Hunedoara'da inşa edilmiş Gotik-Rönesans tarzlarını taşıyan bir yapıdır. 1446'da yapımına başlanan kale, büyük oranda Gotik tarzda inşa edilmiştir. Kale, tarihi boyunca 5 kez yanmıştır. Vlad the Impaler ( Kont Drakula , Kazıklı Voyvoda )'in John Hunyadi tarafından 7 sene boyunca bu kalede tutsak edilmesinden dolayı Bram Stoker'ın kitabındaki kalenin burası olduğu düşünülür. Stoker'ın kendi el yazısıyla aldığı notlar ışığında kalenin Calimani Dağları'nda boş bir tepenin üzerinde ve o dönemki Moldova sınırına yakın bir yerde olduğu bilinmektedir.

Ionic Athens; detail of the Megaron of the Society of Friends of Education (Megaron Philekpaideytikis Etairias) with gorgeous ionic pilasters and gargoylish gutters. The Megaron is a palatial complex that occupies almost an entire block in downtown Athens, having replaced a number of smaller buildings related to education on the same spot. In 1900 the project commenced upon the designs of Konstantinos Maroudis, but in 1907 Ziller was assigned with the redesign of the facades to which he applied the so-called "colossal" trend features, two cupolas on the free corners and an interplay of neorenaissance, neoclassical and neo-baroque traits. A vast gallery, the Stoa of Orpheus, traverses the building, now occupied by the Book Gallery, a venue of bookstores, but in earlier years the famous cult Cinema Orpheus operated here. In other quarters, the innovative experimental Art Theatre (Theatro Technis) of Karolos Koon sheltered its first steps. Once a famous commercial and cultural gallery, the Stoa of Orpheus was devasted by the financial crisis, but it is still there awaiting brighter days. #athens #greece #greek #greekrevival #greekarchitecture #building #architecturaldesign #design #ig_athens #facade #historyofarchitecture #ig_greece #neorenaissance #neoclassical #neoclassicism #eclecticism #eclectic #venue #cultural #institute #architecture #architecturelover #ionic #pilaster #gallery

Terminal 4, Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport, 1996-2006. Architects: Rogers Stark Harbour + Studio Lamela. The building is covered by a wave-shaped roof, lined with Chinese bamboo, supported on central ‘trees’ and punctuated by rooflights that provide carefully controlled natural light throughout the upper level of the terminal. The roof then oversails the edge of the building to shade the façades. A series of light-filled ‘canyons’ that separate the parallel slices of space that demarcate the various stages of transit penetrate deep in the section. The grand scale generates the feeling of a truly significant public space. The design team set out to maximize natural light to all passenger areas and reduce dependence on artificial light, while providing views out but reducing solar gain with a combination of deep roof overhangs and external shading. #architecture #historyofarchitecture #modernism #architecturephotography #modern #madrid #madridarchitecture #historyofmodernism #historyofarchitecture #contemporaryarchitecture #rogers #richardrogers #airport #terminal #terminal4 #rogersstirkharbour #madridbarajas #bambou

Atocha Station, Renovation and Extension, Madrid, 1984-1992; 2001-2010. Architect: Rafael Moneo (1937-). The first phase of the project was the winner of an invited competition. In addition to solving very many technical problems, the design solution gives priority to the idea of urban continuity and creates a scale appropriate as a gateway to a great city by sheltering the train platforms in a very tall hypostyle hall recalling the great 19th century sheds. The cylinder/lantern interchange is, on the one hand, a sign announcing the presence of the station to the city, making it easy for buses to turn, and on the other hand, a skylight enlivening and illuminating the local commuter train station, on whose roof the parking lot was located. #architecture #historyofarchitecture #modernism #architecturephotography #modern #madrid #madridarchitecture #historyofmodernism #historyofarchitecture #moneo #rafaelmoneo #trainstation #trainstations #atocha #atocharenfe #rafael #busstation

So I did and my excuse is perfect; I filled it with sculpture, you see, so nobody can say, ‘You damn fool, you just built a perfectly nonsensical building up in the woods.’ No, I had a Sculpture Gallery. • #architect #architecturelovers #architecturephotograpy #philipjohnson #glasshouse #pjglasshouse #newcanaan #newengland #architecture #contemporary #contemporaryart #travel #travelblogger #artblog #arthistory #historyofart #minimal #painting #traveling #design #designer #house #landscape #minimal #artgallery #modernism #gallery #interiordesign #historyofarchitecture

Ara Pacis Rome 13-9 BC #augustus, #octavian, #romanarchitecture, #augustuscaesar, #historyofarchitecture, #architecture, #classicalarchitecture, #rome, #campusmartius, #archeology, #reliefsculpture, The altar structure consists of an outer wall (images 2&8) within which is located the actual altar upon which the animal ritual sacrifices took place. The exterior program of sculptural ornament has two levels. The lower level (image 4) has a vegetal motif, symbolic of the abundance brought on by the Augustan peace, while the upper level consists of Augustus’ family and hereditary lineage (images 1,5-7). Meanwhile, in keeping with the solemn religious purpose of the altar, the interior surfaces of the exterior wall are decorated with ox skulls (images 9-10) from which ornamental garlands are strung. Note the Corinthian capital in the interior corner in image 10. If you are interested in a more detailed description of the Altar’s program of sculpture, I’d recommend that you consult Wikipedia’s excellent entry on the Ara Pacis.
