Design for a Royal Library” and his “Design for Metropolitan Cathedral” are some of the designs that caught my attention.

“For this essay, I want to talk about Etienne-Louis Boulle’s work, perception of architecture, and what he thinks it shouldsymbolize.For Boulle, architecture is about expressing function white inciting emotions all at the same time. I was very intrigued byhow he talked about the emotional response he was trying to get from people. He believed that each building, eacharchitectural piece has a specific character, an identity that creates an impact on the viewer. It’s easier to respond to nature,therefore it is easier to look at the responses to a natural phenomenon and analyze and understand how people react andexpress themselves when interacting with it. He was trying to understand how to apply nature to architecture to get positive responses. His way of doing that was by finding volumetric harmony in his designs. He based his concepts on regularity,beautiful shapes, symmetry, the order in proportion, etc.His essay, “L’architecture, Essai sur l’art” describes some of his most relevant and significant architectural projects, none of which were built. Boulle’s designs were extraordinary buildings proposals on a large scale. (the scale plays a very important role in the impact of the human body). “Temple for the Statues of Famous Men”, the “Cenotaph to Newton”, Boulle’s“Design for a Royal Library” and his “Design for Metropolitan Cathedral” are some of the designs that caught my attention. I will eventually choose one of them (I couldn’t decide just yet, the Cenotaph to Newton maybe) and base my essay ontrying to analyze and understand his approaches and his beliefs better.” – this is an explanation about what I’m trying toachieve. Maybe it would be best to concentrate most of the work on the “Cenotaph to Newton” and describe a little bit therest of the designs. I also attached the brief with the assignment, using pictures as references would be great. Citation isextremely important!! It needs to be correct for the UK Standards. Thanks!
