Looking at Queen Anne Style Architecture at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park
November 20, 2013
At this stage of the project, I am very interested in my topic. I am researching the Queen Anne style of architecture popular during the 1880s to 1910s. To be more specific, my essential question is: “What are the characteristics of the Queen Anne style and how were architects able modify the previous style of the mansion incorporating the elements of the Queen Anne style?” I did a lot of research and found a lot of information on this subject. I became interested in this subject after the guided tour given by Madame Hanson. I have done the guided tour a year ago but it was in English. The experience was very different in French. In my opinion, it was more interesting and I learned more information thanks to Madame Hanson who explained in such a way I could better understand. I also like to hear French so it was even more interesting. Madame Hanson was my French teacher while I was a student in elementary school and I enjoyed being her student again. This project is useful as it will help me later in college and in my life. There are parts of this project that will be helpful for social relations such as researching a topic for a long period of time and gaining confidence presenting research. I am happy to be doing what I am doing with the Park at this time.
Ce projet est utile car il va m’aider avec les cours aux universités, et juste avec la vie en général. Je veux dire qu’il y a des aspects de ce projet qui va m’aider, comme les rapports sociaux, la recherche d’un sujet au cours d’une période longue, et juste avec mes compétences des présentations. Je suis heureux d’avoir la chance de faire ce qu’on fait maintenant avec le parc.
