The rise to prominence of Albert Speer is characterised by the manipulation of relationships to advance his personal ambition. Speer’s rise to prominence was a culmination of his accent in architecture, politics and as an internationally significant figure. Albert Speer’s initial prominence came from ability to adapt his architecture to his temporal context. In 1926 traditionalist architect Heinrich Tessenow tutored Speer at the Institute of Technology Berlin. It was here; at a campus where over 60% of students voted for the Nazi Party in student union elections in 1930 that traditionalist and Nazi ideology began to influence Speer and his architecture.

The exponentially rapid growth of internet technology brings into our lives a connection with literature like never before, yet in many ways it has shifted the way in which we view the world. In an article titled “Is Google Making Us Stupid?,” Nicholas Carr argues that the development of internet technology as our primary source of knowledge is depleting us of the “quiet spaces” that stimulate contemplation and deep interaction with the written language and replacing them with distractions and deviations. Though he exposes the intriguing relationship this powerful medium has to our society, Carr fails to consider other aspects that cause a shift in our behavior towards written material. What we are losing, perhaps, deals less with our minds and more with our heart, the poetic center for what we value. We’ve become lazy in our efforts to contextualize our lives with the information that is so readily available to us and no longer prize knowledge as we once
Describe the life of the personality you have studied (2010 HSC) Born in Mannheim, Germany in 1905, Albert Speer was persuaded to take up architecture by his father who made a significant impact on Speer’s life. He pursued his architecture studies at the Institute of Technology in Karlsruhe in 1923 and graduated in four years later, two years before the Great Depression.

The invention of the steam engine in the 18th century transformed the transportation capabilities of society and spurred further innovation as people and materials could be quickly transported on land for distances previously unimaginable. Finally, it is difficult to understate the ways in which the microchip and personal computer have fundamentally altered the organization of society; the instant access to and constant flows of information have changed communication, education, and business in modern society. In light of the social change wrought by these technological innovations, sociologist William Ogburn argued that technology was the basic cause of social change. In particular, he identified three processes by which technology drove social change: Invention, discovery, and diffusion. While invention can refer the combination and transformation of existing materials into new items, it can also refer to social invention and the propagation of new ideas.
