Design Intent And Conflicts Of The Ownership: Can A New Vision Rescue Taliesin East?, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff 2015 Iowa State University

Design Intent And Conflicts Of The Ownership: Can A New Vision Rescue Taliesin East?, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff

Benjamin A Shirtcliff

THE PROGRESSION OF Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin East from an evolving experiment to a decaying relic provides an example of a discursive space and insight into the concept of ownership. A recently-submitted master plan for Taliesin’s buildings and landscape intends to preserve the architect’s home in the remote bluffs above the Wisconsin River near Spring Green, WI. Its current state refl ects how tensions which underlie the challenge of interpreting design intent can threaten the only thing capable of representing the architect’s work. The presentation will explore this discursive relationship between a cultural landmark and an ...


Managing Dynamics Of Power And Learning In Community Development: A Case Study Of Iowan Farmers In Uganda, Stephen Lauer, Francis Y. Owusu 2015 Iowa State University

Managing Dynamics Of Power And Learning In Community Development: A Case Study Of Iowan Farmers In Uganda, Stephen Lauer, Francis Y. Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

Extension professionals facilitate community development through the strategic manipulation of learning and power in peer-to-peer learning partnerships. We discuss the relationship between empowerment and power, highlight relevant literature on the difficulties power presents to learning and the efficacy of service learning tools to facilitate mutual learning and present original findings from our research on an international development partnership in which Extension professionals had partial success in creating opportunities for mutually empowering learning among farmers from Iowa and Uganda. We recommend that Extension professionals encourage learning across power gradients by providing opportunities for informal conversations and encouraging reflection by participants.

El Turismo En Pátzcuaro (México). Percepciones Del Visitante Extranjero Entre 1880‑1920, Eder García

Eder García

In Mexico, tourism arises as an economic activity around the 1920s, through government agencies and policies for tourism control. Previously, travelers in the country were amazed with what they named as primitive and picturesque, found especially in the rural villages. Patzcuaro was one of the places that best exemplified the picturesque, through an imaginary forged in the mind of the visitor, published in the books where authors reflected their views and experiences. The present paper analyze how this imaginary picturesque of Patzcuaro was showed, becoming a category of Mexican tourism, being even today one of the most attractive offers for ...


Surfing The Youtube: How Social Media Is Changing Landscape Research, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff 2015 Iowa State University

Surfing The Youtube: How Social Media Is Changing Landscape Research, Benjamin A. Shirtcliff

Landscape Architecture Conference Proceedings and Papers

Accessing insights from underrepresented populations, such as adolescents, remains a persistent challenge in the research and design process. The paper will investigate the utility of online videos of user-posted materials as an innovative research tool. Unlike traditional in situ approaches to studying human behavior and public space, online videos permit access to multiple sites based upon the population or activity of interest. The approach is similar to studies of behavior using unobtrusive observation—where participation or interviews might interrupt the activity under observation or where access to the setting of the activity would otherwise remain inaccessible to the researcher.

Building A History: Evaluation Of Central Washington University Campus Buildings To Determine Eligibility For Listing On The National Register Of Historic Places, Lauren M. Walton

All Master's Theses

Using U.S. Department of the Interior standards, I completed an intensive inventory of 184 buildings on the Central Washington University (CWU) campus, from which I evaluated buildings to determine their eligibility for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Historical research allowed me to identify the age of each building, as well as stylistic trends and historic events between the late nineteenth and early twenty-first centuries that influenced CWU architecture. Through archival research, I determined whether each historic building represented the work of a master architect, a distinct type, period, or method of construction/architecture, or was ...

Neighborhood Housing Damage And Restoration In Galveston, Texas Following Hurricane Ike, Chandler Wilkins, Walter G. Peacock, Sara Hamideh 2015 Iowa State University

Neighborhood Housing Damage And Restoration In Galveston, Texas Following Hurricane Ike, Chandler Wilkins, Walter G. Peacock, Sara Hamideh

Community and Regional Planning Proceedings, Papers, and Posters

This research focuses on the impactsand restorationof neighborhoods in Galveston, Texas post-Hurricane Ike. Using data on parcel values collected annually from 2008 to 2015 and ACS 5-year estimates for 2005-2009, I examined the relationships between restoration and property damage, race, ethnicity and household income. My research shows that neighborhoods with higher levels of damage, higher percentages of non-Hispanic black people and lower household incomes experienced a slower pace of restoration post-Ike. This is an important contribution to the literature as few studies have been able to examine longer term housing recovery following a disaster.

Homeowner Willingness To Adopt Low-Impact Development Practices In The Ipswich River Watershed: Opportunities And Barriers, Johanna R. Stacy 2015 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Homeowner Willingness To Adopt Low-Impact Development Practices In The Ipswich River Watershed: Opportunities And Barriers, Johanna R. Stacy

Masters Theses

The Ipswich River watershed has experienced increasing urbanization in recent years. The river, which supplies water to over 300,000 residents (twice the watershed’s population), was considered one of the 10 Most Endangered Rivers in the U.S. in 2003 due to seasonal low-flow and no-flow events. Seasonal outdoor water restrictions have curbed residential demand; however, impervious surfaces and municipal sewer systems direct much of the runoff outside the watershed. Low-impact development (LID) practices, specifically those that infiltrate runoff, have the potential to keep more water in the watershed, and increase baseflows in the river.

This study seeks to ...


The Dialogue Of Craft And Architecture, Thomas J. Forker 2015 University of Massachusetts Amherst

The Dialogue Of Craft And Architecture, Thomas J. Forker

Masters Theses

To master any type of process, it is estimated ten thousand hours is needed to finely tune your craft. Whether it is wood joinery, music, culinary arts or glass-blowing, it is about making something that can be seen, heard, touched and/or used. Society seems to be losing an appreciation for craft as an idea. Especially in the US, materialism has reduced quality and craftsmanship to merely a luxury to those who can afford it. It seems that while mainstream society continues to "progress", the craftsmen see their client's loss of comprehension and appreciation of the true quality in ...


Creativity In Urban Placemaking: Horizontal Networks And Social Equity In Three Cultural Districts, Tom Borrup 2015 Antioch University - PhD Program in Leadership and Change

Creativity In Urban Placemaking: Horizontal Networks And Social Equity In Three Cultural Districts, Tom Borrup

Dissertations & Theses

Many authors point to expanding disparities related to wealth and social benefits brought by globalization and the creative city movement while culture and creativity emerge as growing forces in urban placemaking and economic development. The phenomenon of cultural district formation in cities around the globe presents challenges and opportunities for leaders, planners, and managers. Emerging theory related to cultural districts suggests culture can serve to build horizontal relationships that bridge people and networks from different sectors and professions as well as across ethnicities, class, and interests. Research for this dissertation examined the formation of three urban cultural districts social and ...
