Floating Home: An Imagined Community, Carrie Collier

Theses and Dissertations

Climate experts around the world agree that anthropogenic climate change threatens the long-term survival of the human species. Human activity has already contributed to an exponential spike in the rate of extinction among other Earthly species, beginning at the time of the industrial revolution.

The American home is a site of concentrated resource consumption, waste production, and greenhouse gas emission. It is also a site where gender-based expectations continue to burden women with a majority share of uncompensated, under-valued domestic labor. Collective or communal housing arrangements could reduce per capita carbon output while facilitating the equitable re-distribution of work that ...

Vivienda Flexible Para Una Ciudad Compacta Ciudad Bolívar Bogotá, Jhon Edward Contreras Peña, Sebastian Ávila Rodríguez

Arquitectura

La calidad de vida es un concepto que evoluciona en respuesta a los cambios de la sociedad (Alguacil Gómez, 2000, pág. 1), además, su valoración se realiza en gran parte de forma subjetiva e individual (Urzúa & Caqueo-Urízar, 2011, pág. 63), lo que ocasiona que este concepto tenga diferentes definiciones y puntos de vista. En base a esto, el psicólogo Rubén Ardila, (2003) a partir de varios autores sobre la calidad de vida, construyó una definición desde una perspectiva integradora, la cual explica que la calidad de vida es un estado de satisfacción que una persona obtiene al poseer intimidad, expresión ...

Brutalism And The Public University: Integrating Conservation Into Comprehensive Campus Planning, Shelby Schrank 2020 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Brutalism And The Public University: Integrating Conservation Into Comprehensive Campus Planning, Shelby Schrank

Masters Theses

The University of Massachusetts Amherst, the Commonwealth’s flagship campus, is home to several Brutalist buildings. Similar to other buildings of this genre, they have gone unrecognized for their importance to the campus and their prominent architectural significance. Additionally, due to the ravages of close to 50 years of exposure coupled with limited maintenance and, in some instances, neglect they are now at a point where restorative maintenance is critical in ensuring their future contribution to the campus.

This thesis addresses the importance of creating a comprehensive, long-term plan for these buildings, by first looking to the University’s most ...

Many family groups fall into the category of multigenerational living. However, this study investigates the relationships between adults and senior family members in terms of privacy in the home ...

The Evolution Of The Function And Design Of Spaces In Academic Libraries Through The Digital Era, Kareem S. Galal

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Along with technology development in all fields of contemporary life, activities come development regarding architectural requirements. The functions, spaces usage, types of buildings, etc. have changed. Certain architectural elements and spaces have disappeared while other functions have either disappeared or been minimized. The change has also exceeded the architectural level to the urban level, affecting the urban planning elements, sizes, and decision-making processes.

Developments in technology exert a great influence on communication as well as data entry, saving, and archiving; which, in return, has had a direct impact on libraries’ spaces, operating systems, functions, and user types. As a result ...

Contextualize, Jiaai He

Masters Theses

Museums, as a continuation of the urban environment, enrich people's recreational life and also carry the mission of education. Museums protect culture outside a textbook and make history closer to people’s lives. However, the present museum has not reached an ideal state for the expression and embodiment of cultural objects.

Time and history shape the objects, and the objects inside a museum record and memorialize the period of their creation. Stories and contest behind cultural objects’ creation are integral to knowledge and understanding. What do we remember after a museum visit? Displaying the full range of historical content ...
