About the Book:

Art and architecture have a deep connection that unites them through their design, their designer, and their individual meanings.  Architects create livable or usable spaces, but their architectural structures are also significant beyond their functionality. The arts reflect the society that creates them. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of the ancient Greeks. Through their temples, sculpture, and pottery, the Greeks incorporated a fundamental principle of their culture: arete. To the Greeks, arete meant excellence and reaching one’s full potential. Formal analysis is an integrated study of all the formal qualities of an art object to see how they all work together. We can then see how they add to the overall meaning of that piece of art. Formal qualities add to an artwork because they are aesthetically satisfying. Looking at art is a different experience from looking at the general environment, which is visually disjointed and disorganized. The formal qualities of artworks make them satisfying visual experiences, which adds considerable power to art. Size, scale, texture and value are all formal elements in art that contribute to a works meaning. Size, scale and value are formal elements in architecture that enhance the meaning of a building. This book is an excellent resource guide for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about global arts and architectures.
