Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, 2014 University of South Florida
Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler
The garden city or garden suburb was a response to the social and environmental ills of cities at the turn of the twentieth century. Letchworth Garden City, Hampstead Garden Suburb, and Welwyn Garden City were built outside London in the early 1900s, and each remains a highly desirable place of residence today. From the start, each was tightly regulated, and remains so a century later. By protecting the appearance and enhancing property values, the strict application of historic preservation principles contribute to the long-term sustainability of each place. Similar garden suburbs were built in the borough of Queens in New ...

El Urbicidio Es El Asesinato Litúrgico De La Ciudad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.
Fernando Carrión Mena
Académico del Departamento de Estudios Políticos de FLACSOEcuador, doctor en Ciencias Sociales y especialista en políticas urbanas y seguridad ciudadana, Fernando Carrión Mena habla de urbicidio al sostener que “hay una ritualidad o una estrategia explícita de tipo militar, económica o política para intervenir en la ciudad”. El arquitecto, quien fuera también secretario de planificación del Municipio de Quito y coordinador general de la Red Ciudades para América Latina, dice que “la planificación urbana debe reconocer el derecho a la ciudad”.

Working With Paul Rudolph To Make Rudolph Work: Reclaiming, Conserving, And Adapting Sarasota High School (1958), 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Working With Paul Rudolph To Make Rudolph Work: Reclaiming, Conserving, And Adapting Sarasota High School (1958), Katherine Marie Armstrong
Sarasota High School, designed by Paul Rudolph in 1958, physically embodies the central ideas of Regional Modernism that developed in Sarasota, Florida in the 1940s and 50s. Covered breezeways, monumental sunshades, deep overhangs, and sliding glass doors promote natural ventilation and sun shading as ways to deal with Florida’s hot climate. As an example of progressive architecture of the time, it is a seminal work of Rudolph’s and significant to Sarasota’s architectural legacy of climatically responsive, modernist buildings that captured international attention.
Sixty years later, Sarasota High School is now unoccupied and in a state of disrepair ...
Main Street: An Avenue Of Culture And Commerce, 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Main Street: An Avenue Of Culture And Commerce, Gregory Ralph Morrison
Influenced by theme parks and a desire to “revive” the past, we often nostalgically consider Main Street as a homogeneous entity, relegating its existence to the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries alone. Investigation into the history of Main Streets across the United States, as well as more specific analysis of Main Street in Memphis, TN reveals the fallacy of this assumption. Main Street has had a rich and complex history. Strengthening the presence of this true past, rather than relying solely on its fabricated history, offers a tremendous opportunity for cities to capitalize on their history. To build in a way ...
Revitalizing A 19th Century Industrial Complex Into A 21st Century Research And Learning Technology Center, 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Revitalizing A 19th Century Industrial Complex Into A 21st Century Research And Learning Technology Center, James Lawrence Wines
The revitalization and repurposing of the Domino’s Sugar Plant will foster a vibrant and engaged community for the neighborhood in a distinct way differing from the recent history of growth. Williamsburg is located in a north Brooklyn, New York, community that has been struggling for its identity since the 1970’s. The reprogramming of this abandoned industrial site will include the addition of a new technological research center that will contribute to economic growth and stability for the neighborhood. The new jobs will help bring more people into the neighborhood who will be committed to both live and work ...

Erosión De La Institucionalidad Pública Como Parte De La Erosión Del Centro Histórico, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.
Fernando Carrión Mena
Ni el patrimonio económico y cultural heredado del pasado, ni la importancia política y los medios financieros que el Estado atribuya a sus ciudades serán suficientes si no se produce la movilización de sus propias fuerzas. Para lo cual se requiere que las ciudades dispongan de una fuerte identidad sociocultural y de un liderazgo político autónomo y representativo y, sobre esta base, generen proyectos colectivos que proporcionen a la sociedad urbana la ilusión movilizadora de todos sus recursos potenciales

Encapsulating History Of Place, 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Encapsulating History Of Place, Ashley Linn Lenentine
Architecture has the ability to reveal the culture and history of a place, to support the community and educate society. The design becomes the vessel that retains the history of the place and increases cultural appreciation throughout society. This thesis looks to reinterpret how design responds to a historic context and incorporates culture and memory into the method for new design. A place is an accumulation of layers that tell a story of the past and overlay conditions of the present that enhance the experience of the place. The site, context, history, and culture can be identified as various layers ...
Revitalization Through Rehabilitation: Enhancing Communities Through Re-Use, 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Revitalization Through Rehabilitation: Enhancing Communities Through Re-Use, Jason Stuart Pimsler
The densification of an existing community through the implementation of sustainable design principles, such as adaptive reuse, promotes revitalization. The re-inhabitation of the proposed abandoned structure along the BeltLine can lead to further development of the existing arts complex. As part of this revitalization, linkages established along a citywide master-planned path provide nodal connections between the local art district and the artists of the Goat Farm and educate visitors of the significant industrial history of the area. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the positive impact that sustainable architecture, adaptive reuse and proper planning can have on a ...

Revitalizing Hamilton's Heart: Business Owners And The Prospects For King Street Downtown, 2013 McMaster University
Revitalizing Hamilton's Heart: Business Owners And The Prospects For King Street Downtown, Claire S. Atkin
Open Access Dissertations and Theses
Since the 1960’s, post industrial downtowns across North America and Europe have suffered economic and population losses. Downtown revitalization theory is now a major subject in urban geography. Although each city is unique and requires customized revitalization techniques, certain approaches have worked better than others. Hamilton, Ontario, is a city of roughly 520,000 located just outside the Greater Toronto Area. Its downtown has struggled since the 1970’s. In the last ten years, however, certain areas of downtown have shown signs of revitalization. Conversation about this change has largely focused on attracting creative industries. King Street, Hamilton’s ...

Quarters A At The Old Charleston Navy Yard: A Historic Interior Furnishing And Interpretive Plan, Wendy Madill, Charlotte Causey, Amy Elizabeth Uebel, Mary Margaret Schley, Julia Tew
Graduate Research and Discovery Symposium (GRADS)
Charleston's Naval Yard resembles a ghost town today, but it was once the city’s most active industrial district. It employed thousands of South Carolina workers who built warships and Navy infrastructure throughout the 1900s. When the Admiral presided over this bustling base, he lived at Quarters A. This social epicenter hosted military ceremonies, weddings, and PR visits from celebrities. Charles Lindbergh, Helen Keller, and FDR are some of the notables who walked these halls—halls that are now silent. Since the 1996 decommissioning of the base, Quarters A faces deterioration. Although exterior condition is poor, the interior is ...
