Interactions With The Narrative Of Jewish Suffering: Methods Of Interaction And Development Of Memory At The Denkmal Für Die Ermordeten Juden Europas, Maggie Fisher 2020 University of Iowa

Interactions With The Narrative Of Jewish Suffering: Methods Of Interaction And Development Of Memory At The Denkmal Für Die Ermordeten Juden Europas, Maggie Fisher

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

The historical narrative is a living entity easily influenced by interpretation and reinterpretation of ideologies, events, and conflicts. The development of a concrete narrative surrounding events, such as the Holocaust, can mask or expose horrifying crimes against humanity. The public memorial is one of many tools used by societies to help shape the events of the past into the rhetoric of the future. After the close of the Second World War, Germany became a state riddled with memorials attempting to integrate the horrors of the Holocaust with a continuously developing German identity. These monuments and the narratives they embodied explicitly ...


Empire And Ruins In Nineteenth-Century Egypt, Adin Becker 2020 Claremont Colleges

Empire And Ruins In Nineteenth-Century Egypt, Adin Becker

Pomona Senior Theses

Modern Egypt began as a site for academic exploration and exploitation. Its tremendous archeological riches, indisputable centrality within the world of Islam, and complex multifaceted cultural makeup have piqued the interests of academics worldwide. For centuries, scholars have fantasized about “what lay beyond the water,” a land where they knew “colossal relics of the oldest-known human civilization were concentrated along the Nile in crumbling piles between two vast, usurping deserts, amidst a modern population that professed faith in Islam.”1 Absent material motives, however, Egypt long remained a land of mystery for the West, ripe for discovery and exploration. Egypt ...


Acts Of Meaning, Resource Diagrams, And Essential Learning Behaviors: The Design Evolution Of Lost & Found, Owen Gottlieb, Ian Schreiber 2020 Rochester Institute of Technology

Acts Of Meaning, Resource Diagrams, And Essential Learning Behaviors: The Design Evolution Of Lost & Found, Owen Gottlieb, Ian Schreiber

Articles

Lost & Found is a tabletop-to-mobile game series designed for teaching medieval religious legal systems. The long-term goals of the project are to change the discourse around religious laws, such as foregrounding the prosocial aspects of religious law such as collaboration, cooperation, and communal sustainability. This design case focuses on the evolution of the design of the mechanics and core systems in the first two tabletop games in the series, informed by over three and a half years’ worth of design notes, playable prototypes, outside design consultations, internal design reviews, playtests, and interviews.

Décadence De L'Architecture À La Fin Du Dix-Huitieme Siecle, Charles-François Viel 2020 Livre de Lyon

Décadence De L'Architecture À La Fin Du Dix-Huitieme Siecle, Charles-François Viel

Architectural Sciences

Les principes de l’ordonnance des bâtimens que j’ai publiés, ont exigé que je leur donnaśse tous les développèmens prescrits par le sujet lui-même, afin de fixer le jugement des élèves et des amateurs, sur l’essence de l’architecture. Car , de même que le phâre indique un port salutaire aux navigateurs, de même, les principes des arts dirigent ceux qui les cultivent, vers leur but.


Progress In Art And Architecture, With Precedents For Ornament, John Pollard Seddon 2020 2020

Progress In Art And Architecture, With Precedents For Ornament, John Pollard Seddon

Architectural Sciences

The substance of the following pages was prepared origi-nally in the form of a consecutive series of papers, to be read before the Architectural Association of London during its subsequent sessions; and portions have already appeared in several of the professional journals at the time of their deliv-ery: they are now, however, for the first time presented to the public in the manner in which it was always designed that they should be united, and have been likewise most care-fully revised, while many parts have been entirely re-written. The interest attached to the subjects treated of in them has, I ...


St. Illtyd's Church, Pembrey: Its History And Its Architecture, Edward Roberts, H. A. Pertwee 2020 Livre de Lyon

St. Illtyd's Church, Pembrey: Its History And Its Architecture, Edward Roberts, H. A. Pertwee

Architectural Sciences

The history of our Old Churches forms an interesting and significant part of our national history. The one is largely dependent on the other. In early times the Ecclesiastical and Civil authorities went hand in hand together; adversity or prosperity somewhat similarly affected both. Thus the history of a parish church forms a national history in miniature, and the recognition and admission of that fact make the neglect of old church history all the more inexplicable. This work is therefore all the more welcome


Architecture Under Nationalism, John Pickering Putnam 2020 Livre de Lyon

Architecture Under Nationalism, John Pickering Putnam

Architectural Sciences

Nationalism may be defined as the substitution of universal coöperation and education for industrial and social welfare. It is a continuation of the evolutionary force which has raised man from the lower to the highest form of terrestrial beings. It is so strictly logical and practical in all its aspects; so impartical in its benefits to all classes; has already crept so deeply into the minds and hearts of thinking people in both continents, and has made such remarkable progress of late, in this country, especially on the Pacific coast, in arousing the people to definite action with a view ...


An Apology For The Revival Of Christian Architecture In England, Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin 2020 Livre de Lyon

An Apology For The Revival Of Christian Architecture In England, Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin

Architectural Sciences

It would be most unnatural and ungrateful in me, when putting forth a Treatise relating to the Revival of Christian Architecture in England, were I not to dedicated the same in an especial manner to pour Lordship, who has been the main support in the furtherance of that good work, and to whom I am so greatly bounden.


Essay On Gothic Architecture, John Henry Hopkins 2020 Livre de Lyon

Essay On Gothic Architecture, John Henry Hopkins

Architectural Sciences

In presenting the following work to those who are interested in Church Architecture, the author is sensible that he is liable, amongst professional architects especially, to the charge of presumption, for meddling with a science which he cannot be supposed to understand. Perhaps the best mode of defending himself against this accusation, and of making a true apology for the book itself, will be to state the simple facts which gave rise to the undertaking.

Foster Rhodes Jackson And The Visual Conquest Of The West, Eve Kaufman 2020 Claremont Colleges

Foster Rhodes Jackson And The Visual Conquest Of The West, Eve Kaufman

Scripps Senior Theses

Colonizers settled the Los Angeles and the Southern California region in part by using Modernism’s visual rhetoric and propagandic implications during the time of suburban sprawl. Suburban sprawl refers to the mass single family home development which took place from the 1920[1]s until now but peaked from the 1970s to the 1990s. Los Angeles sprawl grew particularly in the 1950[2]s as soldiers returned from WWII. It was a way for middle class white families to accrue generational wealth and follow through on the American Dream[3].

The primary result however disenfranchised already marginalized groups. This ...


Cartographier L’Essor D’Un Modèle : Le Chapiteau Ionique De Michel-Ange De L’Invention Au Début Du Xviie Siècle, Federica Vermot 2019 Université de Lausanne

Cartographier L’Essor D’Un Modèle : Le Chapiteau Ionique De Michel-Ange De L’Invention Au Début Du Xviie Siècle, Federica Vermot

Artl@s Bulletin

This study proposes to map the propagation of an alternative type of ionic capital invented by Michelangelo in 1563. We proceed to a comparative analysis of the new buildings erected in Rome from the invention of the new capital to the beginning of the 17th century, in order to highlight spatial and temporal correlations peculiar to its diffusion. The study of this issue allows to understand the perception of the capital that the next generation of roman architects developed, which is a less known aspect of Michelangelo's reception. Overall, it invites to shape the stylistic evolution of an architectural ...


Urban Contacts: Orientalist Urban Planning And Le Corbusier In French Colonial Algiers, Delaney Tax 2019 University of San Diego

Urban Contacts: Orientalist Urban Planning And Le Corbusier In French Colonial Algiers, Delaney Tax

Copley Library Undergraduate Research Awards

Algiers, the first French colony in Africa, was conquered in 1830 and gained independence in 1962. During this period, Algiers was constructed into an Orientalist acting ground that was shaped through political, social, economic formations in the built environment. The French colonial fascination with Algiers centered around the casbah, and thus the casbah became a laboratory for ethnographic and urban reflections. The French process of urban planning included military intervention, preservation motivated by exoticism and museology, and superstructure master plans dictated by the present benefit of indigenous communities to the colonial regime. Le Corbusier’s contact with Algiers further expresses ...


Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson 2019 Yale University

Saving Software And Using Emulation To Reproduce Computationally Dependent Research Results, Euan Cochrane, Limor Peer, Ethan Gates, Seth Anderson

Yale Day of Data

Using digital data necessarily involves software. How do institutions think about software in the context of the long-term usability of their data assets? How do they address usability challenges uniquely posed by software such as, license restrictions, legacy software, code rot, and dependencies? These questions are germane to the agenda set forth by the FAIR principles. At Yale University, a team in the Library is looking into the application of a novel approach to emulation as a potential solution. In this presentation, we will outline the work of the Emulation as a Service Infrastructure (EaaSI) program, discuss our plans for ...


The Cornaro Chapel Or The Culminiation Of Bernini's Bel Composto, Damien Vacherot 2010 2019 Colgate University Libraries

The Cornaro Chapel Or The Culminiation Of Bernini's Bel Composto, Damien Vacherot 2010

Colgate Academic Review

How does one achieve unity, both of form and meaning, in the visual arts? Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Cornaro Chapel in the Carmelite church of Santa Maria della Vittoria, Rome surely comes close to answering this question. Indeed it represents the culminiation of the art historical concept of the bel composto. The term, which can be translated as "beautiful whole" refers to the simultaneous use of painting, sculpture, and architecture to enhance the viewer's experience of the piece represented. I was particularly fascinated by the spatial and rhetorical relationship between the different mediums used in the chapel. The techniques ...


Metaphor And Simile As A Design Tool To Use Intangible Heritage In Contemporary Architecture- An Approach To Maintain Identity And Cultural Authenticity- Case Of Gaza City, Ahed Helles 2019 El-Aqsa University, Palestine

Metaphor And Simile As A Design Tool To Use Intangible Heritage In Contemporary Architecture- An Approach To Maintain Identity And Cultural Authenticity- Case Of Gaza City, Ahed Helles

Emirates Journal for Engineering Research

Historical buildings are considered a source of architectural inspiration and a key determinant to maintain continuity with the past and preserve cities identity. Unfortunately. most of the historical buildings in Gaza city had been diminished from the fabric making the city as if it has no historical roots, not only because of the scarcity of its historical architecture but also because of its contemporary architecture which seems empty from cultural contents and meanings. However, the city is rich with its intangible heritage which can be invested to fill the vacuum as a source of architectural inspiration. The study proposed that ...
