The three enormous domes cover

The three enormous domes covering the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum of Art spring from their square bases through the aid of triangles of vaulting known as 'pendentives.’ The use of pendentives not only allowed architect Richard Morris Hunt to design rounded domes hovering over square bases, but they also served to draw allusions to great structures from architectural history. First experimented with by the Romans in the 2nd-3rd c. CE, pendentives were fully developed by the 6th c. CE, with the Byzantine construction of Hagia Sophia in present-day Constantinople. Interested in learning more “behind the scenes” tidbits about the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Join one of our Art Historian guides this Friday, September 15th @ 11:00 AM for our tour of “America’s Museum” to explore the building, collecting, and cultural history of this New York City icon. #bigoniontours #metropolitanmuseumofart #themet #domes #pendentive #vaulting #circleandsquare #architecturalhistory #beauxarts #buildinghistory #richardmorrishunt #arthistory #museumhistory #artlover #historylover #museumlover #nyclandmark

6/25_ Sultanahmet Camii 
長

6/25_ Sultanahmet Camii 長達七小、持續整夜的航程,約莫清晨五點終於踏出機場大門。帶著一點緊張和些許亢奮,搭上了前往舊城的機場大巴。第一天的行程,我們鎖定部分位於舊城區的景點。 - Sultanahmet Camii因室內磁磚所用色彩而被稱作藍色清真寺,基部和柱子皆砌上超過兩萬塊的手工陶瓷磚瓦,非常壯觀。參照了鄰近的聖索菲亞大教堂的拜占庭特色,並融入伊斯蘭傳統建築,結合了奧斯曼建築與拜占庭教堂的精粹。 - 進入清真寺內,抬頭即被眼前景象所震撼。儘管寺內人聲鼎沸、參訪民眾絡繹不絕,但若閉上雙眼卻仍能感受到前所未有的平靜。 #photoshoot #photography #turkey #istanbul #sultanahmetcamii #travel #travelgram #amazing #beautiful #magnifique #architecture #pendentive #lumiere

White Series: Santa Maria di Piazza . Vittone gouged concave grooves through pendentives to the corner bays that buttress the drum. This cleared a wide path for the light and views, and appeared to fuse the pendentives and drum into a single structure. A classic example is the vault of the presbytery of Santa Maria di Piazza in Turin. Richard Pommer-Eighteenth-century architecture in Piedmont the open structures of Juvarra, Alfieri & Vittone . .

These fingertips touch in the #19thcentury #graphite #drawing by Alexandre Denis Abel de Pujol (French, 1785–1861). Allegorical Figure of the City of #Piacenza, for a #Pendentive in the Chapel of Saint-Roch, Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris. Accession number 1984.66 . This figure representing one of four Italian cities saved from the plague by Saint Roch in the early fourteenth century is currently on view in the exhibition, "Picturing Math: Selections from the Department of Drawings and Prints," in #TheMet's Gallery 690 through May 8th. The slight angle at which the drawing is squared suggests a minor adjustment required in the positioning of the figure when transferred to the next phase of preparation for the frescoes. #mathandart #whiteheightening #metonpaper100
