Imagining The Unimagined Metropolis: Privilege, Liminality, And Peripheral Communities In The Contemporary Urban Situation, Colton R. Sherman
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Various works of psychogeographic literature explore privileged and non-privileged communities and spaces through narrative and character development. Novels of this sort—specifically those by China Miéville, Neil Gaiman, and J.G. Ballard—feature narratives where their respective protagonists undergo a liminal metamorphosis and transform from a monotonous, albeit privileged urbanite into a free-associating inhabitant of the urban periphery: the unimagined, non-privileged space of urban detritus. By engaging with these authors’ novels alongside the works of the Situationists, Walter Benjamin, Rob Nixon and others, the goal of this thesis is to explore how the dominant urban epistemologies are subverted—whether or ...
Rethinking Urban Green Infrastructure As A Means To Promote Avian Conservation, 2017 The University of San Francisco
Rethinking Urban Green Infrastructure As A Means To Promote Avian Conservation, Allen Lau
Master's Projects and Capstones
There is an under-recognized potential for cities to use urban green infrastructure to contribute to avian biodiversity conservation. At the global scale, climate change and growing urbanization are primary global drivers leading to decline and homogenization in world bird populations. Birds are fundamental and intricate species in ecosystems, and even in urban areas, act as indicator and regulator species contributing to healthy ecosystem function. While many cities have recognized the economic and social benefits associated with green spaces, such as the vast benefits ecosystem services provide to the urban dweller, the use of green spaces to concurrently contribute to avian ...
Waiting For The Site To Show Up. Henry Luce Makes Frank Lloyd Wright America’S Greatest Architect, 2017 Iowa State University
Waiting For The Site To Show Up. Henry Luce Makes Frank Lloyd Wright America’S Greatest Architect, Daniel Naegele
Daniel J. Naegele
Henry Luce, owner of “Life”, “Time”, “Fortune” and “Architectural Forum”, recognized Frank Lloyd Wright’s immense charisma and talent and featured both the architect and his work in all four of his renowned popular press journals in January 1938 – though clearly he did so for his own ends. Luce believed fervently in America. In 1937, the German architects Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius migrated to the USA to assume leadership of two of its nest schools of architecture. Luce countered this promotion of European architecture by featuring Wright in his four journals. Despite Wright’s immense unpopularity at ...

For The Love Of Concrete, 2017 Syracuse University
For The Love Of Concrete, Steve Carlson
Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects
For the Love of Concrete celebrates the beauty, versatility, durable sustainability and authenticity of concrete in architectural design. This capstone is born out of the contentious debate around the mid twentieth century architectural style “Brutalism”. I acknowledge the shortcomings of concrete as a material (chiefly its carbon-intensive manufacturing process), but forefront its positive attributes. This in the face of increasing demolitions of concrete structures, and the trend toward superficiality in architectural design as architects more than ever focus too much on the design of the skin or facades of buildings, rather than focusing on designing good bones.

There is little doubt that the Syrian civil war has catalyzed what experts and onlookers now consider the greatest humanitarian crisis in the 21st century. Per the UNHCR, the UN Refugee relief agency supporting refugee camps across the globe, roughly half of Syria’s 22 million pre-war population has been displaced, most which have fled to neighboring countries of Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and beyond to seek refuge. 13.5 million of these people, whether unable to leave their homes or awaiting permission to do so, are in dire need of international support from non-for-profit relief agencies struggling to provide basic ...

Land Use Zoning In America: The Case For Inclusionary Policy, 2017 Portland State University
Land Use Zoning In America: The Case For Inclusionary Policy, Thomas Geffner
Residential zoning code has been one of the most powerful forces in shaping the growth of modern American cities. By regulating which types of buildings can go where, zoning code has led to the creation of suburbs as we know them, with row after row of detached single-family homes. Indeed, the American city would look drastically different if it were not for the creation of zoning codes. But how did the institution that is American zoning come to exist? This essay will attempt to answer that question by exploring the early history of zoning, starting in the 1910s. It will ...
Shifting School Design To The 21st Century: Challenges With Alternative Learning Environments, 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Shifting School Design To The 21st Century: Challenges With Alternative Learning Environments, Bryan H. Perez
Theses from the Architecture Program
There is a need for major change in our educational system and in particular the design of schools. Our existing school model was defined in the mid- to late-1800s, as a response to the Industrial Revolution, and does not reflect the needs of the next generation of 21st century students. One of the key elements of change in schools is the shift from confined classrooms towards alternative learning environments – spaces that are designed for a specific learning type or activity.
This thesis focuses on secondary education and examines three schools identified as having innovative school designs. While all three schools ...
Perception Of Spatial Impression Due To Varying Positions Of The Source On Stage, 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Perception Of Spatial Impression Due To Varying Positions Of The Source On Stage, Sungbeen Cho
Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research
The listener’s surrounding environment aﬀects the perception of sound. The environment includes physical factors such as space size, shape, and ﬁnish materials, and psychological factors such as individual difference of impression, and vision. Acoustic spatial impression can be defined as the concept of the type and size of space at which a listener arrives spontaneously when he/she is exposed to an appropriate sound ﬁeld. This thesis analyzes how physical factors in enclosed spaces aﬀect the acoustic spatial impression, and how sound sources at different positions on stage are perceived in different shapes of spaces.
First, existing spatial impression ...

Geological Principles Illustrated In The Art Along The Antelope Valley Hiker/Biker Trail – The Big X (Salt Creek Roadway/Antelope Valley Parkway) South To Q Street, 2017 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Geological Principles Illustrated In The Art Along The Antelope Valley Hiker/Biker Trail – The Big X (Salt Creek Roadway/Antelope Valley Parkway) South To Q Street, Robert Diffendal, Jr.
Papers in Natural Resources
When the weather is good (and even sometimes when it isn’t) I occasionally walk around the periphery of the UNL city campus, often over the lunch hour, now that the trails and the sidewalks allow one to walk a complete circuit. The walk along Antelope Creek from the Big X to Q Street is beautiful. The designers of the project made nice art works on the floor of the creek and on the retaining walls on the valley sides that add to the beauty of nature.
I am a geologist and wondered about some of the art and its ...
A Silver Service And A Gold Coin, 2017 Chapman University
A Silver Service And A Gold Coin, Justin St. P. Walsh
Art Faculty Articles and Research
The published history of a set of silver and gold objects acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum in 1975 contains an unusual reference to a gold coin, supposedly found with the set but not purchased by the museum. The coin, which is both rare and well dated, ostensibly offers a date and location for the ancient deposition of the silver service. Almost five years of research into the stories of the Getty objects and the coin has revealed important information about these particular items, but it also offers a cautionary example for scholars who might hope to reconstruct the ...
Thriving Cities: How To Define, Apply, And Measure Well-Being At Scale, 2017 University of Pennsylvania
Thriving Cities: How To Define, Apply, And Measure Well-Being At Scale, Jaclyn Gaffaney
Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Capstone Projects
What is a thriving city? Is it even possible to raise the well-being of an entire city, and why bother? Recent advancements in positive psychology have made it possible to define, measure, and increase well-being on a much larger scale. This provides an unprecedented opportunity for cities to explore well-being. In order to increase the well-being of the city – cities will need to think carefully about what that means, why it is important, and how they will do it. This capstone posits that cities can define what well-being means for themselves inclusive of: the target (the city, individuals, or other ...
