An Inquiry into the Fusion of Principles of Astronomical Alignments
with Principles of Sacred Geometry in the Design Process of
Sacred Architecture. Using Architecture students in Foundation Studio,
the first two years of Architecture School, to do actual Design
Projects in Design Studio on the computer in 2D and 3D with photo realistic
renderings of two original Design Studio Projects created by
Adjunct Assistant Professor Scott A. Ogburn, "Re-Designing Stonehenge"
and "Object in the City, Transforming Platonic Solids", to demonstrate
the unique creativity of these Design Studio Projects given the parameters
of using Sacred Geometry and Astronomical Alignments in the Design
Process of these Architecture Studio Design Projects. Also included in this
Ph.D. Dissertation is a History of unique examples of Sacred
Architecture from ancient civilizations that have used Both
Principles of Astronomical Alignments with Principles of Sacred
Geometry in their Design Process as a number of examples of
Sacred Architecture using Both of these Principles.
