George Croll Baum: Building A Greater Gettysburg, Abraham M. Apfel

Hidden in Plain Sight Projects

On November 16th, 1926 George Croll Baum died. In Gettysburg, Pennsylvania the local newspaper covered his death. The Gettysburgian, the paper for Gettysburg College reported that Henry W.A. Hanson, the college president, was “deeply distressed and further noted that Baum's death 'touched the hearts of all that knew him with deep regret.'" Within a month Dr. Hanson had already ordered three memorial plaques to be placed on the campus. Baum's family tried to help pay for them. Hanson refused the money. In a correspondence with Baum‟s brother about the plaques, Hanson told him, “What I did ...

A Survey Of The Ecclesiastical Building Of The J.A. Dempwolf Architecture Firm, York, Pennsylvania, Rebecca Morrish Cybularz

Master of Science in Historic Preservation Terminal Projects

This thesis examines the ecclesiastical buildings of the J.A. Dempwolf architecture firm of York, Pennsylvania. The prolific firm brought architecture to small cities and rural areas of central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.

During their tenure, the firm designed over six hundred buildings which included houses, churches, public buildings, hospitals, schools, and businesses; of these eighty-nine were ecclesiastical buildings. Included within this thesis are the survey of forty-five of the designed churches in chronological order by date of design and a list of the remaining forty-four. Also included are a history of the firm ...

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

This report documents the work of the Senior Urban Design Studio in Springfield’s Upper Lyman District in downtown Springfield. It is part of the Metro Center neighborhood and adjacent to the Union Station that will be revitalized in 2016. The district is challenged by high vacancies and general abandonment. Housing opportunities and market-rate housing in particular are very low. The primary goal of the project was to develop a staged vision to revitalize and rediscover the Upper Lyman Warehouse District and to improve livability in the heart of downtown Springfield for employers, employees, residents, and visitors. The following recommendations ...

Heritage Preservation Projects

The Case studies class of spring of 2010 compiled this resource material. This study focused on suburban residential developments in DeKalb County, Georgia between the end of World War II and 1970 in order to better understand the transformation of the area after the Second World War. The resource includes data on national residential trends, architectural and landscape designs, as well as information on metropolitan Atlanta. The resource was created to support the effort to preserve local neighborhoods, buildings, and landmarks by providing the historic context in which they were created.

Cultural Layering, Paloma Rodriguez-Torres 2010 Syracuse University

Cultural Layering, Paloma Rodriguez-Torres

Architecture Senior Theses

Architecture, history, and identity in Mexico City

"Even though different pieces of architecture that range from the Ancient to the Contemporary era can be found sharing the same physical space, they have not yet created any source of interaction, causing a lack of understanding in the region. These pieces are the key players to what one sees or identifies as the identity of the pace and by it not having an common thread that linkg them together, it creates a false sense of identity."


Conspicuous Space: Parking Lot Suburbanism, Ian Nicholson 2010 Syracuse University

Conspicuous Space: Parking Lot Suburbanism, Ian Nicholson

Architecture Senior Theses

"Locating neighborhoods of housing in currently underutilized surface parking lots which serve successful commercial shopping centers and big box stores can synergistically improve the American suburb by allowing opportunities to maintain the suburban idea (rugged individualism, privacy, and mobility) while mitigating its problems (automobiles dependence, distance, and isolation)."


Metamorphose, Elijah Yoon 2010 Syracuse University

Metamorphose, Elijah Yoon

Architecture Senior Theses

"This thesis will test how Metamorphose Architecture can intensify a multi-program space as it changes over time. Metamorphose Architecture will transform as it responds to the purpose, inhabitation, and structure of changing programs to allow maximum efficiency. This transformation will in turn create changes in the appearance and character of the space."


See What I... Controlling Vision Through The Senses, Taylor Wilk 2010 Syracuse University

See What I... Controlling Vision Through The Senses, Taylor Wilk

Architecture Senior Theses

"By dismissing the other (non visual) senses we are encouraging a design approach that lacks concern for human, physical, and emotional engagement. We as a society have become numb to emotive involvement - we have become mesmerized by imagery and have forgotten about the capabilities architecture can employ on experience."

Invasive Ruins, Carey R. Walker 2010 Syracuse University

Invasive Ruins, Carey R. Walker

Architecture Senior Theses

"The purpose of this thesis is to search for a way in which architecture can become a tool used to create a new definition for age-value and historic-value. Instead of proposing an architecture typology that will exist and be admired 'forever', the proposal becomes a suggestion of ruin; to allow the new building language to age over time alongside with its natural site."


[Dis] Lodge: A Transformation Of The Contemporary Ski Lodge In Response To Site And Function, Jacob Schneck 2010 Syracuse University

[Dis] Lodge: A Transformation Of The Contemporary Ski Lodge In Response To Site And Function, Jacob Schneck

Architecture Senior Theses

"Through an understanding of the complex functions found in the contemporary ski lodge and their relationship to site, architecture can effectively integrate the multiplicity of functions found in the ski lodge with site, while introducing a contemporary formal language that analogically references the advanced technology of ski equipment."


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."

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 ...


A Greenway Runs Through It: The Midtown Greenway And The Social Landscape Of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Aaron M. Brown 2010 Macalester College

A Greenway Runs Through It: The Midtown Greenway And The Social Landscape Of Minneapolis, Minnesota, Aaron M. Brown

Geography Honors Projects

Minneapolis’ Midtown Greenway is a 5.5 mile bicycle and pedestrian corridor that replaced a grade-separated railroad line in 2000 and expanded to its current length in 2007. In an era of reinvestment in American inner cities and a heightened political awareness of both urban transportation alternatives and public spaces, the academic field of geography has much to contribute to the discussion about the viability, effectiveness, and success of projects such as this adaptive reuse of reclaimed, deindustrialized space. My research investigates results from a survey of 223 Greenway users, exploring participants’ demographics, residential proximity to the trail, and purposes ...
