The Savior of Architecture
This piece is the Florence Cathedral. It was fully finished in 1436, but had started many years before. You will see this building in the city of Florence, Italy in its creation spot. The most significant thing about Florence Cathedral was the dome. Brunelleschi was able to use Ancient Roman techniques to build the self supporting Dome and in a way brought back a dead way of building. The Florence Cathedral is so amazing because it is so beautiful and so complex. It was able to recreate a way of building while at the same time being able to bring beauty and awe to its appearance. The Florence cathedral and Brunelleschi exemplifies skepticism because in its creation Brunelleschi questioned the architectural ways of the Ancient Romans. Without him having this skepticism this project wouldn't exist, and neither would the cathedral.
