Out of the 14 famous architects, I was only familiar with Charles and Ray Eames and Michelangelo. We learned about Charles and Ray in class, that is why I am familar with them, and I've heard of Michelangelo and his work on the Sistine Chapel. I think Michelangelo was a very interesting man. He was most famous for his paintings, but he's also known for doing paintings on buildings, like the Sistine Chapel. Besides being a artist and an architect, Michelangelo was also an engineer and a poet. Sadly, Michelangelo is really not that famous for being an architect, since he only has two buildings that really stand out to the people. Those two buildings being the Laurentian Library and the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome. His way with art really made his buildings stand out in a way that made him really well known. I think Michelangelo did a great job as an architect. I especially love the Basilica and would love to go visit one day.
