Undermining Impasse: The Role Of Architecture In The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Laura Ondrich 2010 Syracuse University

Undermining Impasse: The Role Of Architecture In The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, Laura Ondrich

Architecture Senior Theses

"The building strategies in the West Bank, culminating in the construction of the separation barrier, are politically aimed at temporary separation, but their built reality is resulting in a continuing and unbalanced coexistence. This investigation seeks to understand the social implications and hostile perceptions arising from these patterns of government-imposed political architecture with the ambition of responding though critical intervention."


Architecture Cover To Cover [Entry To Exit], Ryan Kowalczyk 2010 Syracuse University

Architecture Cover To Cover [Entry To Exit], Ryan Kowalczyk

Architecture Senior Theses

"By making an architecture that offers successive ideas to complete a coherent whole, the true art of architecture can be re-realized."


On The Tracks: Design Strategies For Urban Shrinkage, Holli L. Janoski 2010 Syracuse University

On The Tracks: Design Strategies For Urban Shrinkage, Holli L. Janoski

Architecture Senior Theses

"Architecture has the capacity to assist the post-industrial city and support smart decline through the design of a low maintenance recreational network that adapts vacant space and excess infrastructure for public use. This network is composed of a series of interventions that capitalize on existing landscape conditions and material availability while promoting inter-connectivity, cross-connectivity, and activity."


The Architecture Of Resistance: Pivoting The Informal Economy, Michael Langone 2010 Syracuse University

The Architecture Of Resistance: Pivoting The Informal Economy, Michael Langone

Architecture Senior Theses

"In the struggle for growth, the architecture of informal commerce is complicit in the perpetuation of an impermanent and uncertain existence that favors acquiescence over resistance. More is required of it.

An architectural intervention can provide pivot points upon which to direct the flow of unregulated commerce and subvert state-sponsored efforts to peripheralize it."


Be All You Can Be! Then Two Steps To The Left And Scopic Operations In Military Theatre, Alex Coulombe 2010 Syracuse University

Be All You Can Be! Then Two Steps To The Left And Scopic Operations In Military Theatre, Alex Coulombe

Architecture Senior Theses

"The criteria for which I would ask to be evealuated include three essential categories, all relating back to how well i have modified Fort Jay to be a theater within its context. First, I would like to be judged by how well I exploit the latent theatrical opportunities of the site, both on urban and local scales. Second, I would like it to be considered how well the design would function as a performance venue, especially when compared to a conventional design. Finally, I would like my critiquers to judge the theater from a purely experiential standpoint."


Campus [Re]Connected: Research, Housing, And Recreation Campus In The Pristine Northern Woods Of Wisconsin, David A. Franknecht Jr. 2010 Syracuse University

Campus [Re]Connected: Research, Housing, And Recreation Campus In The Pristine Northern Woods Of Wisconsin, David A. Franknecht Jr.

Architecture Senior Theses

"People are becoming more and more removed from the natural world through the development of modern technologies and lifestyles... Reconnecting people with the natural environment will enable a realization of our reliance on the natural environment and its success in the future. Campus design and landscape architecture can come together to interpret the way we interact with the environment and further this connection in a positive way."


Didactic Architecture: A Tectonic Response, Elizabeth Kankainen 2010 Syracuse University

Didactic Architecture: A Tectonic Response, Elizabeth Kankainen

Architecture Senior Theses

"Using the tectonic nature of architecture as the vehicle, architecture can educate its users of material life cycles., Through revealing particular stages of production by exposing, exaggerating and juxtaposing the connections between materials, the physical process of a buildings formation can be understood, along with architecture's inherent connection to nature."


Performative Design: Investigating Form In The Natural And Capitalist Environment, John M. Santoro 2010 Syracuse University

Performative Design: Investigating Form In The Natural And Capitalist Environment, John M. Santoro

Architecture Senior Theses

"Rethinking the design process from conception and allowing natural forces, such as wind, solar exposure, and rainfall to drive the initial design will generate a structurally and environmentally efficient form."

Funding Sustainable And Humanitarian Architectural Projects, Joslyn R. Olsen 2010 Utah State University

Funding Sustainable And Humanitarian Architectural Projects, Joslyn R. Olsen

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this project is to identify sources of funding for sustainable building projects and create a catalog of the findings. This study targeted the nonprofit, humanitarian, and private organization sectors with the goal to encourage subsequent projects that may positively impact the quality of life for people in need. It has been predicted that in the next 25 years 75% of America's built environment will be either new or renovated. The downside is that new buildings cause substantial ecological damage due to the extraction of materials and account for as much as 40% of all greenhouse gases ...


Spatial Erasure: Reconstruction Projects In Beirut, Marwan Ghandour, Mona Fawaz 2010 Iowa State University

Spatial Erasure: Reconstruction Projects In Beirut, Marwan Ghandour, Mona Fawaz

Architecture Publications

Often associated with processes of healing, postwar re-construction projects may be less related to the pre-destruction phase than to the actual act of destruction. This, at least, is what the Lebanese case suggests. In this essay, we argue that the spatial erasure initiated by war destruction is consolidated during postwar reconstruction. We developed this argument by analyzing two of the main postwar reconstruction projects that have marked Beirut’s urbanization since the end of its civil war in 1990. The first project, the reconstruction of Beirut’s downtown, was undertaken starting 1994 by a private real-estate company, Solidere [1], extends ...


Cultura Urbana: ¿Un Asunto De Imaginarios?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Cultura Urbana: ¿Un Asunto De Imaginarios?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las ciudades se han estudiado desde ámbitos distintos, por ejemplo, desde las estructuras físico-espaciales, propias del urbanismo, desde la perspectiva económica a través de la renta del suelo o localización industrial, o a partir de la estructura social identificando c1ases, grupos, sociedad local. Pero última mente se ha desarrollado una nueva óptica que tiende a llenar un vacío: la perspectiva ciudadana de la ciudad que se concibe, construye y reconstruye desde su cotidianidad, desde el "espíritu de la ciudad" Por otro lado, la cultura ha sido entendida como si proviniera de una trilogía: lo culto (bellas artes), lo popular (folclore ...


La Seguridad Ciudadana Es Un Fracaso, Fernando Carrión Mena 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Seguridad Ciudadana Es Un Fracaso, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En América Latina existe un incremento de los hechos delictivos y, consecuentemente, de la victimización; este cambio de tendencia se percibe desde mediados de la década de los años ochenta del siglo pasado cuando tres hechos se producen en simultáneo: la globalización, la reforma del Estado y la modernización de la violencia. Según los promedios de las tasas de homicidios en Latinoamérica, se tiene que en 1980 era de 12.5 por cien mil habitantes y en el año 2006 de 25.1. Estos datos muestran que en 25 años los homicidios se han duplicado y lo han hecho en ...


The Risks Of Unbalanced Bidding, David William Cattell, Paul Anthony Bowen, Ammar P. Kaka 2010 Bond University

The Risks Of Unbalanced Bidding, David William Cattell, Paul Anthony Bowen, Ammar P. Kaka

David Cattell

Unbalanced bidding models have largely ignored the risk aspect of item pricing. Many researchers have acknowledged that there are considerable risks associated with unbalancing a bid but little has been done to describe these risks, let alone model them. A new framework is proposed by which all of these risks can be assessed. It identifies that these risks comprise the risk of rejection, the risk of reaction, and the risk of being wrong. It is further proposed that the value-at-risk ('VaR') method of measuring risk is a convenient way by which to combine all of these risks into one composite ...

Desenho Urbano E Revitalização Na Área Portuária Do Rio De Janeiro: A Contribuição Do Estudo Da Percepção Ambiental, Vicente Del Rio

Vicente del Rio

Contribution on the importance and applicability of the studies of environmental perception for urban design in the revitalization of a city center suffering a process of decline and underutilization of its development potentials. Theoretical support is developed in Part One through conceptualizations on revitalization of city centers, urban design and its role in this process, and the applicability of environmental perception studies. The Port Area of Rio de Janeiro is taken as the case-study and its evolution, developmental aspects and tendencies are considered in the Part Two. The Third and last Part presents an analysis of environmental perception at the ...
