Art Education focuses on all things architecture
THE beauty of buildings will be the main focus for an upcoming Art Education Talk at the Stanthorpe Art Gallery by Leonardo Arcidiacono.
This will be the second part of Mr Arcidiacono's talk on architecture.
This much enjoyed talk gave a perspective that brought our contemporary built environment into perspective. Reaching back to the Ancient Mesopotamians, the Egyptians, Greek civilizations, and more, architectural history is a global history.
As structures and dwellings are among the chief artifacts that any civil society leaves behind, the history of architecture is, at its essence, a history of human civilization.
Leonardo graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Queensland in 1980.
He has been in Private Practice since 1983, as Project Architect, Designer, Architectural consultant and Contract Architect.
Architectural commissions have been diverse and wide ranging; from multiple housing, to Resort Architecture, School Architecture, and Master Planning.
Projects have included designs for the theatre, Corporate Logos, Adventure Playgrounds and Landscape Design.
In 1997 Leonardo joined the teaching staff at Southbank Institute of Technology; Architectural studies, as Architectural Design teacher.
He states that, "Architecture and Architectural Design is a passion and a fascination for me.”
Mr Arcidiacono left our transfixed audience with the taste of the next lecture, the concept of outside spaces, inter-gardens and landscaping .
This fascinating extension of architecture into the landscape which resonates with a contemporary push to honour the planet and blend rather than impose, will be part of Leonardo's next Art Education Lecture on the 12 July, 10.30am at the gallery.
