Synopsis

Experimenting with Everyday Science Art & Architecture by Stephen M Tomecek

Tall buildings dominate the landscape of most major cities, and crowds stare in awe of masterpieces in museums around the world. But how is science involved? Art and Architecture explores some of the scientific principles in sculpture, painting, photography, and the design and construction of buildings. Learn how light creates the colors you see in a painting and how holograms are produced. Discover the history of architecture from the ancient stone pyramids of Egypt to modern structures made from glass and steel. Hands-on activities help bring the science of art and architecture to life with topics ranging from how the forces of tension and compression affect the design of a bridge to how perspective in a drawing can make a picture look more lifelike.
