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

Hut Annandale: Humblest Dwelling, Ruiqi Zhu 2020 Bard College

Hut Annandale: Humblest Dwelling, Ruiqi Zhu

Senior Projects Spring 2020

Lots of us have a dream deep down in the heart: to get away from the congested cities and live in a hut in nature. French port Jean Wahl once wrote: The frothing of the hedges I keep deep inside me. In my project, he explored this dream and constructed a group of architectural structures by hand for those potential hermits. Studying at Bard College, I have found this region is a place with a great hermit culture. With the picturesque scene of nature and the location near the New York Metropolitan area, here the mid-Hudson Valley has attracted lots ...


Some Notes On Congruency, Ryan J. Rusiecki 2020 Bard College

Some Notes On Congruency, Ryan J. Rusiecki

Senior Projects Spring 2020

Some Notes on Congruency is an examination of the seemingly arbitrary methods in which the built environment facilitates order among its inhabitants (eg., parking lot striping, roadway signs). Asphalt fissures observed at the main intersection in Red Hook, NY were used as a starting off point for making the photographs contained within this book. A lens with a focal length that closely resembles the range of human vision was used to communicate the experience of discovering fissures from my perspective as a pedestrian and motorist. I was most captivated by temporal, subtle fissures, such as the replanting of flower beds ...

The Wendingen Edition: What Frank Lloyd Wright Wanted Holland To Know In 1925, Daniel J. Naegele

Architecture Publications

‘I believe that Holland will go far along the line of architecture; it is there that the architects seem to have taken root in my work,’ Frank Lloyd Wright told his wife-to-be Olgivanna on the day in 1925 that the Wendingen Edition arrived at Taliesin.1 And to this he added, ‘the enlightened minority does seem at this time to be strongest in Holland.’

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.


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 ...


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.


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 ...

Arquitectura Vernácula U'Wa Arquitectura Vernácula De La Comunidad Indígena U’Wa Como Representación Pragmática De Su Acervo Cultural Territorio U’Wa Colombia, Juan Camilo Salas Montoya 2020 Universidad de La Salle, Bogotá

Arquitectura Vernácula U'Wa Arquitectura Vernácula De La Comunidad Indígena U’Wa Como Representación Pragmática De Su Acervo Cultural Territorio U’Wa Colombia, Juan Camilo Salas Montoya

Arquitectura

La presente reflexión surge a partir del dilema frente a la arquitectura vernácula, si cumple, solamente con una función de refugio, o si, por el contrario, se manifiesta como un ejemplo de expresión cultural de la sociedad que la construye. Es por esto, que se toma como caso de estudio la arquitectura vernácula de la comunidad indígena U’wa, con el propósito de entender si su arquitectura trasciende del simple edificio habitado, a evidenciar que está claramente conformado como resultado del conocimiento ancestral y la expresión cultural.

Es aquí, donde la arquitectura se convierte en una puerta a un mundo ...

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 ...

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 ...
