Aftermarket Supermarket | A Speculative Retrospective, 2016 Syracuse University
Aftermarket Supermarket | A Speculative Retrospective, Alexander Kim
Architecture Senior Theses
In the preface to Delusive Spaces: Essays on Culture, Media and Technology, media theorist Eric Kluitenberg writes that “the delusion of the new”1 pollutes our theorizations of new media. This sort of technocratic fetishization of emergent technologies can only amount to a surfatial investigation of its effects or capabilities. Architectural investigations of virtual reality and other new media systems suffer from this tendency as well. Content-based experimentation and criticism obsess over the simultaneously exciting and daunting prospects of what we can now do or make with recent digital developments. There’s definite value in such endeavors, but frankly, in ...
The Shenzhen Activist Program`, 2016 Syracuse University
The Shenzhen Activist Program`, Hyunggyu Kim, Jae Hyun Kim
Architecture Senior Theses
There is a gap between being an architecture student in western countries and working as an architect in underrepresented communities. Architect Teddy Cruz defines the role of an activist architect as "expanded mode of practice", and the task of "deigning the protocols or the interfaces between communities and spaces".
This thesis contends that architecture schools need to continue to embrace the widely-accepted norm of studios studying abroad and working in an international studio. Current study abroad programs tend to skew towards being touristic field trips and there is not a curriculum or programmatic investment in cultivating relationships between the visiting ...

Examining The Potential For Population Growth And An Economic Boom In Elk Creek, Nebraska As A Result Of Mining, 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Examining The Potential For Population Growth And An Economic Boom In Elk Creek, Nebraska As A Result Of Mining, Corbin D. Bogle
Community and Regional Planning Program: Student Projects and Theses
Many communities throughout the world that rely on resource extraction experience a population boom. This boom can be difficult accommodate due to the fact that many of these communities are small and do not have the housing to deal with the population increase. Elk Creek, Nebraska, a small community in southeast Nebraska, is on the brink of experiencing a possible boom situation. A company called NioCorp has discovered a mineralization at a site near the community and plans to mine niobium, titanium, and scandium from it. They believe this will add 1,200 temporary jobs for construction and 300 to ...
An Extendable Visualization And User Interface Design For Time-Varying Multivariate Geoscience Data, 2016 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
An Extendable Visualization And User Interface Design For Time-Varying Multivariate Geoscience Data, Yanfu Zhou
Computer Science and Engineering: Theses, Dissertations, and Student Research
Geoscience data has unique and complex data structures, and its visualization has been challenging due to a lack of effective data models and visual representations to tackle the heterogeneity of geoscience data. In today’s big data era, the needs of visualizing geoscience data become urgent, especially driven by its potential value to human societies, such as environmental disaster prediction, urban growth simulation, and so on. In this thesis, I created a novel geoscience data visualization framework and applied interface automata theory to geoscience data visualization tasks. The framework can support heterogeneous geoscience data and facilitate data operations. The interface ...

Learners are guided through a design thinking process to reimagine a current space at your school. Participants should come with photos of their potential space/s and room dimensions ready to create a prototype of their new ...
Encontrando Rostros, 2016 Iowa State University
Encontrando Rostros, Daniel Naegele
Daniel J. Naegele
Mandoline et guitare (Picasso, 1924) es un cuadro ambiguo, construido conscientemente como una cabeza encubierta, oculta. Esta lectura secundaria de la obra cuestiona el contenido obvio de la lectura primaria, la naturaleza muerta. La ambigüedad fomenta la conciencia de la percepción visual del espectador. Una lección en la naturaleza de la representación, la pintura emana un sentido de lo extraño. Está secretamente habitada, reuniendo un valor de culto y de exposición, insistiendo en que “otros mundos” están localizados dentro del mundo que conocemos. ¿Puede una ambigüedad y sugerencia de otros mundos de este tipo presentarse en el caso de la ...
Drawing-Over: Une Vie Decantée. Le Corbusier Y Louis Soutter, 2016 Iowa State University
Drawing-Over: Une Vie Decantée. Le Corbusier Y Louis Soutter, Daniel Naegele
Daniel J. Naegele
Louis Soutter, primo de Le Corbusier, era un afamado violinista que, al final de su vida, fue internado en un sanatorio suizo. Soutter amaba dibujar. Sus figuras humanas, lascivas y alargadas, flotan juntas como un fluido, extendiéndose de arriba a abajo y de margen a margen, decorando cualquiera de las superficies que Soutter cubría. Cuando Le Corbusier dio a Soutter copias de sus afamados libros, rápidamente ‘sobredibujó’ en sus imágenes. Sus dibujos no anulaban el texto visual, sino que lo comentaban. Resultaba una intrigante dialéctica. En un artículo de 1936 de la revista Minotaure, Le Corbusier describía con benevolencia a ...

Excursus On Contessa Priuli, With Postscript, Colin Rowe, Daniel Naegele
Daniel J. Naegele
I have dedicated this collection of essays to the memory of Contessa Lilian Priuli-Bon because I begin to understand that, unless I myself make notice of her, hers was a life and a sensibility – a remarkable historical intelligence – which likely will remain without record.
La Puertas Y Ventanas De Duchamp: Fresh Widow, Bagarre D'Austerlitz, Puerta: 11 Rue Larrey, La Puerta Gradiva, Etant Donnés, Daniel Naegele
Daniel J. Naegele
Cuando utilizamos el sistema de categorías para reflexionar sobre el arte de Marcel Duchamp, nos enfrentamos a una aparente paradoja: de un modo simultáneo, nos conduce y, a la vez, se resiste a la clasificación. Esta característica aparece en toda su obra. Es una cualidad que encontramos en cada pieza y en la obra en su conjunto. Se examinará esta cuestión, poniendo uno al lado del otro cinco trabajos de Duchamp: Fresh widow (1920), Bagarre d’Austerlitz (1921), Puerta: 11 rue Larrey (1927), las puertas de la galería Gradiva de André Breton (1937) y la puerta del Etant donnés (1946-1966 ...

Daniel J. Naegele
Although she is often considered one of the 20th century's most renowned women in architecture, Charlotte Perriand (1903 -1999) was not an architect- she regarded herself as an interior designer and took issue with those who thought her merely a furruture designer. Her best-known interior was a temporary installation that she and Pierre Jeanneret completed while in the atelier of Le Cor busier for the 1929 Paris Salon d'Automne exhibition. In that same year, in collaboration with Le Corbusier and Jeanneret, she designed three chairs: the chaise-longue, grand confort, and fauteuil a dossier basculant. All were essential "equipment ...
The Role Of The Contract Administrator Under The Principal Irish Standard Forms Of Building Contract, 2016 Dublin Institute of Technology
The Role Of The Contract Administrator Under The Principal Irish Standard Forms Of Building Contract, Tony Cunningham
Construction contract administration concerns the effective execution of construction contracts. The primary objectives of the individual appointed to administer a building contract typically include delivering the project safely, to the specified quality standards, on time, and within the employer’s budgetary constraints. The administrator’s task is to orchestrate and motivate the various designers and constructors to deliver the best possible performance both individually and as members of the team. This study has investigates the contribution made by the contract administrator in administering construction projects and outlines the decision-making, advisory and information roles undertaken by the contract administrator in the ...

Big Data In The Big Easy: How Social Networks Can Improve The Place For Young People In Cities, 2016 Iowa State University
Big Data In The Big Easy: How Social Networks Can Improve The Place For Young People In Cities, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff
Benjamin A Shirtcliff
Access to social data on human experience of place has never been more available than now. Social media, smart phones, and the Internet of Things provide glimpses into individual activity across the globe. The nearly-boundless stream of information is called “big data.” Today, physically and even socially disconnected individuals can benefit from the similar experiences of others to adapt and change their environment. I argue that big data provides two critical benefits for landscape architecture research and practice: (1) big data opens a window into previously inaccessible human experiences of designed environments, introducing new metrics for evidence-based design and new ...
Lifelong Housing Design: User Feedback Evaluation Of Smart Objects And Accessible Houses For Healthy Ageing, 2016 Dublin Institute of Technology
Lifelong Housing Design: User Feedback Evaluation Of Smart Objects And Accessible Houses For Healthy Ageing, Matteo Zallio, Niccolò Casiddu
According to the latest research by the European Community and ISTAT (Italian National Institute of Statistics) surveys, Europe has the highest average age for its population. According to those data, in the near future, it could be necessary to move from a welfare model based on the centralization of care systems, to a system based on the distribution of certain healthcare facilities . This means that the ageing population is ever increasing, thanks to better lifestyles, innovative medical care and wider access to different services. This work seeks to observe and analyse key implications of architectural and interior design features ...

Black Contemporary: Field Notes And Other Peculiar Deposits, 2016 Iowa State University
Black Contemporary: Field Notes And Other Peculiar Deposits, Peter P. Goché
Peter P. Goché
This article addresses a dormant farm site in which a body of work is being developed in effort to examine the past character and future shape of Iowa's inherited landscape. The content of this exploration was generated in response, and as an addition, to David Heymann's essay "Precise, Anonymous, Enigmatic" published in the 1990 winter issue of Iowa Architect. In that critically perceptive article, Heymann traces the evolution of the Midwestern landscape by examining farm buildings within rural Iowa. Central to the evolution that Heymann cites is the specific topography due to wind erosion. Heymann uses this dynamic ...
Oscillation, 2016 Iowa State University
Oscillation, Peter P. Goché
Peter P. Goché
Our experience as occupants of a particular setting begins with the impulse to instantaneously scrutinize everything. This impulse is sustained through an often precisely choreographed threshold. As architect and artist, my goal is to assist the occupant in maintaining their initial ontological wakefulness through staging, often-temporary assemblies within a host space and thereby enhance its topographic fidelity.
