Adaptive Repurposing Of Smith Elementary, KELSEY L. FIELDS 2018 The University of Akron

Adaptive Repurposing Of Smith Elementary, Kelsey L. Fields

Honors Research Projects

For almost 100 years Smith Elementary School has been an institution of learning and a place of growth for children across the community of Kenmore, including myself. While its closing marks the end of an era it also presents a unique opportunity. Through adaptive reuse, Smith Elementary can have a second life and remain a cornerstone building in the community. The central goal of maintaining the beautiful original architectural details blends with the challenge of making this a functional space where a business can flourish, in the same rooms as hundreds of children have done before. This idea will set ...

Direct Potable Reuse In Small-To-Medium Sized Inland Communities: Lessons Learned For Public Education And Outreach, Claudia B. Pratesi 2017 University of New Mexico

Direct Potable Reuse In Small-To-Medium Sized Inland Communities: Lessons Learned For Public Education And Outreach, Claudia B. Pratesi

Architecture and Planning ETDs

Drought, growing populations, and potential conflict over water in the American Southwest have water authorities examining highly treated wastewater as an option to augment municipal supplies. Direct potable reuse (DPR) holds promise for improving sustainability and reliability of potable water supplies by generating high-quality drinking water from wastewater. Despite research demonstrating that DPR can be safe, one of the biggest hindrances to DPR is negative public perception. Attempts to implement some DPR project have failed, while others have proceeded quickly. Using insights from the literature and interviews with water managers, this study aims to: (1) examine existing community conditions related ...

Urban Rail Transit Ppps: Lessons From East Asian Cities, S Y Phang 2017 Singapore Management University

Urban Rail Transit Ppps: Lessons From East Asian Cities, S Y Phang

PHANG Sock Yong

Private sector participation in urban rail transit has proliferated in the past two decades. The large metropolises of East Asia have had decades of experience with private sector participation in the provision of heavy metro services. The design of these public-private partnerships (PPP) are varied. The diverse experiences of Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Beijing contain valuable lessons for other cities. Using a case study approach, this paper discusses three features of urban rail transit developments in the context of East Asian cities, viz., farebox recovery, land value capture mechanisms, and vertical structure of the industry. Super vertical integration between ...

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor 2017 Iowa State University

Solidarita Housing Estate In Its European Context, Kimberly E. Zarecor

Kimberly E. Zarecor

Europe just after World War II was a damaged environment. Many of its cities had been devastated and people suffered tremendously across the continent. Millions were dead, millions displaced or sick, and millions more were being forcibly relocated to new territories during waves of expulsions. According to United Nations figures, more than 8.8 million housing units had been destroyed in eighteen European countries during the war; at least another 5.6 million units were uninhabitable. This represented one out of every nine units extant in 1939.2 By 1947, the Cold War was underway as the United States and ...


Valuing Variations In Accordance With The Principle Irish Standard Forms Of Building Contract – Worked Examples And Solutions, Tony Cunningham 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology

Valuing Variations In Accordance With The Principle Irish Standard Forms Of Building Contract – Worked Examples And Solutions, Tony Cunningham

Other Resources

Given the nature of the construction process some change is almost inevitable. Standard forms of contract, therefore, cater for such change by including provisions which permit variations and alterations to the works. Variations may range from small inconsequential changes to major revisions which can delay and disrupt the completion to the project and place the project budget under considerable stress.

Establishing a realistic valuation for variations is not always a straightforward task. Even apparently simple changes can have significant unexpected consequences on project outcomes. This study examines how the valuation of variations may be carried out in accordance with the ...


Edible Toledo: Designing For Food Insecurity, Sara Khorshidifard 2017 Bowling Green State University - Main Campus

Edible Toledo: Designing For Food Insecurity, Sara Khorshidifard

Sara Khorshidifard

Imagine America where all ex-decrepit landscapes are food-generator containers. Architectural design can pose such new ways to see, interpret, and transform the built environments. Optimism can subsist amid and beyond the imperfections in urban-rural continuums. Food insecurity epidemics and leftover spaces is a twofold with latent capacities. The American Rust Belt cities are particularly trapped and plagued with many such abandoned, idled
and dormant sites. Trances of possibility are yet to be discovered to turn the former dilapidated zones into vigorous food-productive vessels. These images are bent on alleviating hunger and blight. With optimism, architecture, too, can espouse more meaningfulness ...

A New Teacher On Campus, L Carl Fiocchi, Alexander C. Schreyer, Peggi Clouston

L. Carl Fiocchi

The design of this building transitions it from a traditional role of academic “home” for the disciplines of the built environment to a most welcome new teacher and tectonic faculty member. The Design Building was always envisioned as a living laboratory for learning, deeply intertwined with the curriculum and progressive mission of the Design Building’s disciplines.

Integrity & Incentives: Seeking Equity In Historic Preservation Law, Anneka Olson 2017 University of Washington Tacoma

Integrity & Incentives: Seeking Equity In Historic Preservation Law, Anneka Olson

Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship

In this article, the author presents a case study of mobile home park residents seeking historic designation in the face of neighborhood demolition. The neighborhood’s ineligibility to become a historic site under current law can help demonstrate larger patterns of inequitable outcomes within historic preservation practice. In particular, the author argues that the application of preservation law—despite being formally neutral regarding issues of racial and socioeconomic equity—reinforces existing racial, economic, and spatial inequities. Drawing on the challenge of legal closure from critical legal studies (CLS), the author argues that law and historicity are mutually constituting, and that ...

Exploring Ethical Grounding For Architecture: Four Lenses, Gregory S. Palermo 2017 Iowa State University

Exploring Ethical Grounding For Architecture: Four Lenses, Gregory S. Palermo

Gregory Palermo

Ethics asks: What is good? What is arete excellencelvirtue? What is right? What is just.

Central questions of the discipline of architecture, architectural education and architecture's multiple modes of practicing are: What are architecture's intents, purposes and impacts? Do the acts of designing and building our habitat intrinsically embrace the questions that ethics asks? Commonsense may answer yes due to architecture's fundamental role in addressing human needs. Given that architecture is thought, process and object, and that its purposes range from shelter and construction to engaging "beauty" and theoretical and utopian speculation, what would the grounding for ...
