Your assignment is to choose ONE architect from the required text -(Fazio, Michael W., Marian Moffett, and Lawrence Wodehouse. Buildings
across Time: An Introduction to World Architecture. 4th ed. Boston: McGraw-Hill Higher Education, 2012. ISBN 9781259999543 or ISBN-13: 978-0073379296.)- or video lectures to finish a 3,000 words or ten double-spaced pages paper.
Find Something Important to YOU!
You don’t have to cover everything that the architect ever did, just find something to research that interests you so that this paper can benefit you in some way. This paper requires a significant effort on your part – so be inspired to write about an aspect of architecture that brings you joy!
Yes, you should discuss major accomplishments and/or influences of this architect. However, you don’t need to limit yourself to buildings – architecture is far more interesting than that – consider literature, stylistic movements, architectural philosophy and impacts on architectural education. You can also zero in on one minute detail that interests you and expand upon it.
For example: If you like gardens, then research the gardens in and around the buildings; write about garden design during that time.
Another example: If your architect designed furniture, your whole paper can be about his/her furniture design; write about the history of furniture design and how this architect fit into it.
Detailed Requirements (Important)
Use Arial font, 12 point, double-spaced, with 1” on all margins.

Please see “Chicago Style 16 Sample PaperPreview the documentView in a new window” as an example of what a completed paper should look like in Chicago Style 16.
Use 5 Sources
You are required to use at least 5 sources total for the 3000 word paper.Information for this paper should come from a variety of sources. You are encouraged to use books, videos, interviews, documentaries and academically recognized scholarly web sources in order to develop your own “big idea” that will clearly articulate an organized set of ideas about the architect you have chosen. Web sources may be used, but must not exceed 10% of total sources. Online journals and publications that are accessed through the UF Libraries Databases will not be considered part of this 10% rule. Do not use Wikipedia as a source as it is unverifiable and can be edited at any time. To begin your search for scholarly sources, please visit the AFA Library page.
Please include a Bibliography for your sources. Note that the Bibliography format is slightly different from the footnote format, as it is alphabetized by last name.
