Reviews: The Architecture Of Happiness By Alain De Botton (New York: Pantheon, 2006) And From A Cause To A Style, By Nathan Glazer (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2007), Daniel Naegele 2016 Iowa State University

Reviews: The Architecture Of Happiness By Alain De Botton (New York: Pantheon, 2006) And From A Cause To A Style, By Nathan Glazer (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2007), Daniel Naegele

Daniel J. Naegele

One might reasonably expect that Nathan Glazer, in his From a Cause to a Style: Modernist Architecture’s Encounter with the American City, and Alain de Botton, in The Architecture of Happiness, would take many similar positions. Like Jane Jacobs and Robert Venturi in the 1960s, and like many architectural theorists since, both Glazer and De Botton take issue with Modern architecture. However, both books are something other than theory, and neither author is a designer. And unlike Venturi or Aldo Rossi, Colin Rowe or Charles Moore, neither proposes architectural solutions to his concerns.

Betimlenemeyen Nasıl Fotoğraflanır / How To Photograph The Ineffable, Daniel Naegele

Daniel J. Naegele

Mimarisinin fotoğraflariyla, Le Corbusier perspektif mekanın otoritesini sorgulayabiliyor. Fotoğraf makinesi perspektif ile görür. Fotoğraf makinesi asla yalan söylemez? Peki ya doğruyu yansıtan bir imge perspektiften yoksun ise? Bir fotoğraf bir mekan hakkında baska türlü tahayyül edilemeyecek bir doğruyu söyleyebilir mi?

--

With photographs of his architecture, Le Corbusier could call into question the authority of perspectival space. The camera sees in perspective. The camera never lies. But what if the truth-telling image were a-perspectival? Can a photograph tell a truth about a space that cannot otherwise be known?


Pitstop Confessional, Cayce Davis 2016 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Pitstop Confessional, Cayce Davis

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

This conceptual project considers the region of the South to be a vibrant historical artifact with a valuable future tense. The Pitstop Confessional positions the cultural lineage of the saloon and roadside diner typologies within their contemporary highway context and critiques the morphology of the Southern dining experience from the one-room house to the asphalt edgescapes of suburbia. Waffle House is designed as a truer version of itself – a roadside sanctuary. An assertion is made through spatial gestures, allusions to religious rituals, and the written word that the Waffle House dining experience – however detached from the presuppositions society has about ...


Touch My Axis - Vers Une Architecture Before, L'Espace Indicible After, Daniel J. Naegele 2016 Iowa State University

Touch My Axis - Vers Une Architecture Before, L'Espace Indicible After, Daniel J. Naegele

Daniel J. Naegele

In 1946, shortly after the end of the Second World War and as the rebuilding of Europe began, in a special issue of a professional architectural journal dedicated to the synthesis of the arts, Le Corbusier, perhaps the world's most influential architect at the time, published a short, seemingly innocuous treatise titled "L'espace indicible." It opens with the author recognizing nature's "harmonious orchestration of space" as entirely phenomenal, as "the reflection of light." Ineffable space is, Le Corbusier writes, a "vibration" between the "action of the work (architecture, statue, or painting)" and the "reaction of the setting ...


Surrogate Infrastructures: Human Consciousness In The Information Age, Cayce Davis 2016 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Surrogate Infrastructures: Human Consciousness In The Information Age, Cayce Davis

Haslam Scholars Projects

This project is a study of collective memory in a place and time of intense change, intending to facilitate a conversation about the complexities of remembering and the challenges of humanizing the past in an increasingly fast-paced and consumption-driven world. As it critiques the architectural and anti-spatial precedents of newly suburban Poland, it imagines and exploits alternate narratives for a site that has been heretofore saturated by the singularity of its Holocaust past.

Grappling with the absurdities of history and historiography in Kraków and across the globe, the program takes on a series of infrastructures, imbued with temporal potentials, to ...


Architecture In The Humanities: A Biography Of Architect James Hoban, Eileen Gray, Scott Tallon Walker Architects, Mariah J. Tobin 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Architecture In The Humanities: A Biography Of Architect James Hoban, Eileen Gray, Scott Tallon Walker Architects, Mariah J. Tobin

UCARE Research Products

Architecture In The Humanities is an online database through University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s website. It strives to connect architecture to works of literature, film, theatre and art either through a historical or fictional event that is portrayed as having taken place in or around the architecture. Every year a UCARE student picks an area of interest to research. This year I have chosen to focus on modern architecture specifically designed by Irish architects or Irish architecture firms.


Space: Notes On The Thought Of Luce Irigaray, Andrea Wheeler 2016 Iowa State University

Space: Notes On The Thought Of Luce Irigaray, Andrea Wheeler

Andrea S. Wheeler

In March 2015, a conference was held in New York entitled Feminism in Architecture 2015, and subtitled, ‘We need to change our expectations. We need new models of success. We need to change what and how we teach’. I made an application, and I suggested adding to the subtitle ‘And we need an evolution in love’ (it was not accepted). And yet, the concept of affect, but not apparently affection, is a current conversation in architecture. The question of atmosphere and affect, of space and mood, has been pondered in a number of conferences recently including: Atmospheres (University of Manchester ...

The Cerdà Plan For The Expansion Of Barcelona: A Model For Modern City Planning, Judith Urbano

Focus

Modern city planning started with the Industrial Revolution and the scientific advances of the ��19th Century. At the time, Catalan engineer Idelfons Cerdà coined the word "urbanism” as a new and necessary science to deal with cities, having three major preoccupations:� hygiene, traffic, and equality. In this article, Judith Urbano discusses Cerda's plan for the expansion of Barcelona and why it is considered an icon of modern planning�


James Joyce's Model Dublin, Barry Sheehan 2016 Dublin Institute of Technology

James Joyce's Model Dublin, Barry Sheehan

Academic Articles

“You are walking through it howsomever. I am, a stride at a time. A very short space of time through very short times of space.” (Joyce,1986, p.31).

James Joyce wrote about Dublin from a position of exile. He created a model Dublin, one in which he mixed people and places, events and activities, real and imagined and combined them into a city that suited his own ends.

This imagined city has been examined remotely in a multiplicity of ways, and by people in a way that the real city has not. One can ask whether it is Dublin ...

Arts 344, Padma Kaimal 2016 Colgate University

Arts 344, Padma Kaimal

Faculty Syllabi

From rock-cut halls carved into cliffs to elaborately ornamented constructions with multiple interior spaces, the buildings that have housed worship of the Goddess, Shiva, Vishnu, and other deities of the Hindu pantheon honor the ideals of the divine palace and of the silent cave embedded in a mountain. This course will explore what characteristics the wide range of Hindu temples share, how they vary from one region to another, and how they changed from the 3rd century BCE to 12th century CE. What do they share with structures for Buddhist, Jaina, and Muslim worship? How did ritual shape buildings and ...

A House Fit For A Bee: Historic Apiary Typologies And Technologies, Sonja Jean Lengel 2016 University of Pennsylvania

A House Fit For A Bee: Historic Apiary Typologies And Technologies, Sonja Jean Lengel

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis defined historic apiary typologies and technologies including: bee houses and honey houses, bee shelters, stands, and hives. Because of a strong beekeeping tradition in Philadelphia and its influential role in the advancement of apiculture, this paper researched apiary typologies beginning in Philadelphia and its region. The Rev. L.L. Langstroth, a Philadelphian, experimented with beekeeping methods and technologies, inventing the moveable-frame hive in 1851, which would later make the bee house and other forms of protection unnecessary. Bee manual authors provided various structural forms to protect the hives, produce valuable honey, and aid the beekeeping process. These vernacular ...


From Philadelphia Country House To City Recreation Center: Uncovering The Architectural History Of The Building Known Successively As Blockley Retreat, Kirkbride Mansion, And Lee Cultural Center Through Building Archaeology, Joseph C. Mester 2016 University of Pennsylvania

From Philadelphia Country House To City Recreation Center: Uncovering The Architectural History Of The Building Known Successively As Blockley Retreat, Kirkbride Mansion, And Lee Cultural Center Through Building Archaeology, Joseph C. Mester

Theses (Historic Preservation)

In this thesis, I analyze the Federal style country house, initiated in 1794, that stands today near the corner of 44th Street and Haverford Avenue in West Philadelphia. As it aged, the owners and occupants slowly transformed the country house from a private “country seat” to a public recreation center in the midst of a dense urban neighborhood. I examine the house and its additions, known collectively today as the Lee Cultural Center, through both documentary and material evidence. This building-archaeological approach studies building materials, finishes, and construction technology in order to date and interpret the construction, alteration, use, and ...


Henry H. Houston's Germantown Development Portfolio, 1860-1895: A Niche Suburb's History And Placement Within Suburban Historiography And Preservation Planning, Joshua Bevan 2016 University of Pennsylvania

Henry H. Houston's Germantown Development Portfolio, 1860-1895: A Niche Suburb's History And Placement Within Suburban Historiography And Preservation Planning, Joshua Bevan

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Over the course of 25 years, Pennsylvania Railroad Company executive and land developer, Henry H. Houston, amassed a real estate portfolio spanning 3,000-plus acres in northwestern Philadelphia. Houston’s holdings in Germantown, an emerging Philadelphia suburb during the mid-Nineteenth century, have been overshadowed in terms of scholarly research by Houston’s large-scale community development in neighboring Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. Accordingly, this thesis aims to uncover a comprehensive development narrative for Houston’s Germantown development, connecting land holdings, associated dwellings, architectural character, and social history together in order to determine if Houston’s role in Germantown was simply a precursor ...

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.


The Relational Spiritual Geopolitics Of Constantinople, The Capital Of The Byzantine Empire, Jelena Bogdanović 2016 Iowa State University

The Relational Spiritual Geopolitics Of Constantinople, The Capital Of The Byzantine Empire, Jelena Bogdanović

Architecture Publications

Strategically located on a peninsula on the European side of the narrow Bosphorus strait that connects the Mediterranean and the Black Seas (by way also of the Sea of Marmara and the Dardanelles), Constantinople; the capital city of the medieval Roman Empire that we know as the Byzantine Empire (324-1453), was the largest and most thriving urban center in the Old World.1 The city was founded by the first Roman Emperor who embraced Christianity, Constantine I (d. 337), as the eponymous capital outside historically dominant urban centers and as the alternative to the city of Rome. This chapter outlines ...


Art And Life - Make Invisible Visible In Cao Changdi Village, Beijing, China, peng zhang 2016 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Art And Life - Make Invisible Visible In Cao Changdi Village, Beijing, China, Peng Zhang

Masters Theses

ABSTRACT

Why do we design architecture? How we design it? Why do we design architecture in this way, not in that way? What‘s the most important characteristic for architecture? How we can identity if architecture has realized all ideas we proposed before? With these questions, with the help from kind professors, I found one interesting place - Cao changdi, Beijing, China. Luckily, I found one interesting street and noticed there are some problems here. I needed to figure out what exactly are the problems and try to solve the problems with architecture.

I found that relations and connections are missing ...
