Hi, So this is my take home exam paper for my architecture history class. For each comparison, write an essay of no more then 500 words. Create a compelling thesis and argument based on specific elements of the buildings. you may wish to Think beyond the imagesand address parts of these buildings that one cannot see in the images themselves. A good essay will synthesize ideas form a variety of sources (lecture, section, readings,and the images themselves) So this exam comparison image is heavily based on lectures and readings. I will upload the reading. please read on the material carefully, and used that to help you make the comparison. The important thing is that you need to have good thesis for the comparison as well. The left picture is ISE JINGU TEMPLE THIS ARE SOME NOTES FROM THE LECTURE: it is in japan Shrine for japanese people made out of wood -being renovated every 20 years because wood will eventually broken. So they have to rebuilt it again after 20 years. and they built it side by side, which means right and left of the site since the site is sacred site so they have to be careful when rebuilding it. They need to keep the site well. The right one is gate of San Giovanni following the destruction of the church of Madonna dei Lumi, ca. 1925. You can find the picture from the readings that I am going to upload You have to read the article in order to understand, and be able to answer the comparison. Please read the article carefully. They both are reconstruction.

The left picture is Seheyuan (courtyard house) and the right one is Hedingham castle Here is some notes from the lecture: Ideal type is walled enclosure with 1 or more courtyards; lesser and lower buildings on e. and w. side; oriented n.-s. Patriarchal; multiple generations with prescribed spaces, up to several hundred people. The Seheyuan courtyard house is planned on Confucian principle (social ritual) Public/private areas distinct. The center of the house represented the center of the universe; the roof the heavens, the platform the earth. The walls merely protect against the elements and provide privacy. The right one is HEDINGHAM CASTLE: Hedingham Castle, England, ca. 1140, Essex. Great Halls: David Macaulay, reconstruction of a great hall You can talk about hierarchy how both of the picture have steps when enter. and then the start of feudalism in castle. Where people at that time seek the rich to find protection, and then it is where castle starts to begin. You can say how castle is also place for protection. They usually protect their girl at the top of the castle. Also how usually castle have layers of entrance, since it is the weakest point where people try to attack through the entrance. You can also say that the chinese courtyard which is on the left, it provide like spiritual protection while the right one, which is the castle provide physical protection. That is just the idea where i come up with from the lecture, you can make the argument stronger. Thanks
