					Michelangelo’s architectural
       contribution
Michelangelo Buonarroti was
   principally a sculptor and
      always claimed that
    architecture was not his
     profession but, with a
    sculptor's vision, he saw
     buildings as dynamic
  organisms - metaphors
   of the human body -
   and he designed some of
      the most impressive
   architecture in all history.   Michelangelo's own tomb, at Basilica di Santa Croce di
                                  Firenze, Florence
Among his best-
 known buildings
 are the Medici
 Chapel and the
 Laurentian
 Library in
 Florence, the
 Capitoline
 Hill, St Peter's
 in Rome.
  The Basilica of
     St Peter
  Almost every major architect in
   sixteenth-century Rome had a
hand in designing the Basilica of St
 Peter; each in succession changed
  his predecessor's scheme, yet the
 final product is a cohesive whole,
formed more by the genius of the
         Italian Renaissance .
 Michelangelo worked on many
 projects that had been started by
 other men, most notably in his
 work at                        ,
 Rome.
Michelangelo completed the
work of his three predecessors
with a mastery of scale and
organizing.

Michelangelo's contribution to
St. Peter's; he transformed the
interior into a continuum of
space, the exterior into a
cohesive body.
He also designed the cupola
of St. Peters.

                                  Michelangelo’s proposed plan of
                                            St. Peters.

   The Medici Chapel
 The Medici Chapel has monuments
  in it dedicated to certain members
          of the Medici family.
Michelangelo never finished it, so his
        pupils later completed it.
Lorenzo the Magnificent was buried
   at the entrance wall of the Medici
        Chapel. Sculptures of the
     "Madonna and Child" and the
   Medici patron saints Cosmas and
    Damian were set over his burial.

                                         Madonna with Child
                             The solid and articulated
                          architectural structure and
                                  the strength of
                            Michelangelo's sculptures
                             clearly reflect a complex
                            symbolism that offers an
                         interpretation of Human Life
                                 where active and
                         contemplative life interact to
                            free the soul after death,
                             following a philosophical
                             concept that was closely
                           linked with Michelangelo's
                                    spirituality.

  pilasters corresponding to the
  beams of the ceiling, with a tall
  constricted vestibule.
• Beneath the current wooden
  floor of the library in the
  Reading Room is a series of 15
  rectangular red and white terra
  cotta floor panels.
• These panels, measuring 8 foot-
  6-inches (2.6 m) on a side, when
  viewed in sequence
  demonstrate basic principles of
  geometry.
• The tiles are believed to have
  been arranged to have been
  exposed based on a furniture
  layout that was later changed to
  increase the number of reading
  desks in the room.

• The Capitoline Hill,
  between the Forum and the
  Campus Martius, is one of

  an original design for the
  square, including an
  intriguing ground pattern.
