Poem dedicated Architecture!
Here’s presenting a poem on Architecture written by my 16 year old sister:
Architecture is not just planning and construction,
Its fulfilling client demands with utmost precision.
Here every architect has got his own style,
And all their contributions are very worthwhile.
Frank Lloyd Wright started his career at twenty,
His organic architecture has made the world trendy.
Le Corbusier was a very revolutionary man,
Using grid pattern he made Chandigarh city’s plan.
Buckminster Fuller was an American engineer,
Who popularized the style of geodesic sphere.
Frank Owen Gehry used the style of destructivism,
And in bilbao he build the Guggenheim museum.
These architects have glorified our world by their vision,
And our world has undergone a great revolution.
My younger sister runs a blog where she writes poems… Worth checking it out…
Le Corbuier was an architect, painter and a philosopher. He became a powerful thinker of new urban theories and propounded a bold, modern architecture.
In 1951, he was appointed Architectural Adviser to the Punjab government for designing the new capital city, Chandigarh. This city represents the expression of his revolutionary ideas and is where his greatest monuments have been erected.
Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright became the pioneers of Modern Architecture….
He lived his austere life and admired the simple and the useful. He was not only an architect and a planner but a painter, a sculptor, in secret a poet, a visionary whose view encompassed all that concerns man. Above all, Corbusier was a great humanist whose primary preoccupation was the welfare of man. He worked in India for a pittance and did not die a rich man.
