Chartres Cathedral: sacred geometry (1/5)

This extraordinary documentary film explores one of the most beautiful and mysterious cathedrals in the world, the famous Chartres Cathedral in Chartres, France. Filmed by an acclaimed BBC cameraman, it features haunting images and beautiful music, and advances challenging theories and discoveries by Professor Keith Critchlow, a leading expert in sacred architecture who has studied the mysteries of Chartres Cathedral for over forty years. Also featured is Malcolm Miller, author and longtime cathedral guide. Forty-four magnificent stained-glass windows, including three rose windows, tell the story of the world from creation to the day of judgment. The 12th Century labyrinth in the nave paving is the largest and best preserved surviving example of a medieval labyrinth in France. Who were the architects, the so called Masters of the Compasses? Where did they get the courage and confidence to build such a complex and magnificent cathedral as Chartres? This extraordinary documentary will inspire all students of architecture, religious studies and the mysteries of life.

Kenzo Tange Lecture: Wang Shu, “Geometry and Narrative of Natural Form”

Lecture by Wang Shu, Principal of Amateur Architecture Studio and Head of the Architecture School, China Academy of Art. “Amateur Architecture Studio was founded in 1998 by Wang Shu and Lu Wenyu in Hangzhou, China. Their approach is based around a critique of the architectural profession which they view as complicit in the demolition of entire urban areas and the transformation of rural areas through excessive building. The practice first came to wider attention in Europe with their pavilion for the 10th Venice Architecture Biennale in 2006; a comment on the on-going demolitions, their installation ‘Tiled Garden’ was made from 66000 recycled tiles salvaged from demolition sites. “Rather than looking towards the West for inspiration, as many of their contemporaries do, the practice’s work is embedded in the history and traditions of Chinese culture. In particular they reference everyday building tactics of ordinary people and the strong vernacular tradition of building in China. The name of their practice signals this commitment to learning from the ‘amateur builder’, focusing on craft skills and applying this to contemporary architecture. Wang Shu spent a number of years working on building sites with traditional craftsmen in order to learn from them. Combining this traditional knowledge with experimental building techniques and intensive research Amateur Architecture Studio respond to the ongoing challenges of the rapidly urbanising context of China. They do so with a

This event radically changed and reinvigorated the format of preceeding sg events in San Francisco, Munich, New York, and a number before.

Geometry Meets Architecture – Applying Math in a Real World Project

A video from edutopia.org that highlights a Seattle-area high school geometry class working on a school building design a project with architects. It demonstrates how merging classroom learning with real world experiences motivates students, enhances academic achievement, and introduces them to career opportunities.

Geometry in Architecture…A Look at Frank Gehry’s Walt Disn

Geometry in Architecture, A Look at Walt Disney Hall designed by Frank Gehry. I created a little movie for a Math Project I had to do for Ms. Liu’s Geometry class. I am in 8th grade at Emerson Middle School. We studied Geometry in Architecture. I learned a lot. Frank Gehry is an amazing architect.

Virtual Geometry: Architecture

Architect Mike Hong takes us through his own tutorial of geometry in architecture through his past projects seen worldwide. Project: Negative Sphere Hakata, 1994 In creating our evocative human spaces, a new design paradigm has emerged. Physical maquettes of each space are created digitally and discussed with the client before plans are ever drawn. Once the concept of space has been thoroughly explored, architectural, structural, and mechanical elements are integrated to guide the flow of human interaction and commerce. A truly human space combines creative, entertainment, commercial, and gathering places where interaction occurs naturally. – Mike Hong, Principal

SACRED GEOMETRY PART 19 BY freedomtou architecture & energy

This episodes explores occult architecture. Again i remind all viewers that its not the shape that determines whther the harnessed energy is good or evil, but rather the rituals that take place within these structures. However, Pyramids, octagons, and domes are the most significant shpaes used in architecture based on sacred geometry. If you don’t get it, go and research the architecture of the occult. If you still don’t get it, then move on, you’re bound to understand other parts of this series. This Series Explores the Revelations in World Religions Regarding the Arrivals of the Antichrist Dajjal, Imam Al-Mahdi, and The Second Coming of The Christ.
