Design Collaboratory (Dc), Thomas Fowler

Architecture

The Design Collaboratory builds on the successful 46-year multi-disciplinary experience of this academic institution in developing an interdisciplinary design studio, which cultivates innovative models of practice. A team of professors, with over 40 years of collective cross disciplinary collaborative experience, and students from Architecture and Architectural (Structural) Engineering Departments with periodic involvement from the Construction Management Department (LEED workshop and student involvement on team) participate in a 20-week interdisciplinary design studio. This course has been taught since the 2007/08 academic year. This interdisciplinary team approach to building design has all disciplines involved from the inception of the building design ...


The Space Of The Mask: From Stage To Ridotto, Marc J. Neveu 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

The Space Of The Mask: From Stage To Ridotto, Marc J. Neveu

Architecture

In this chapter, I consider the means of participation within the public sphere of eighteenth- century Venice. My interest is to flesh out the nature of discourse within interior institutional spaces, and I will do so through a discussion of two related phenomena. First, I will examine the role of the mask, which by the eighteenth century had become synonymous with Venetian carnival and debauchery. Indeed, Venice in the eighteenth century gained much of its naughty reputation due to the exploits of Sior Maschere. Masks, however, were not only worn for amusement or the possibility of anonymous pleasure. During the ...


A+D Studio Project_The Acsa Re-Ligare Competition, Kathleen Lugosch 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

A+D Studio Project_The Acsa Re-Ligare Competition, Kathleen Lugosch

Kathleen R. Lugosch

This publication follows the design work of an undergraduate studio taught by Professors Lugosch and Schreiber in the Program of Architecture + Design. The studio started with an exploration of natural light in architecture and culminated in a design for the ACSA Steel Competition, the “Re-Ligare Institute”; the design of a retreat that would afford a time and place to reconnect mind and body.


Design Studio Involvement Of Real-World Stakeholders In The Fay Jones School Of Architecture, University Of Arkansas, Robert Jackson 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Design Studio Involvement Of Real-World Stakeholders In The Fay Jones School Of Architecture, University Of Arkansas, Robert Jackson

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

There is evidence that architecture students are increasingly unprepared to enter the architectural workforce upon graduation. Some research has identified a growing gap between architectural education and architectural practice in terms of real-world concerns as the reason for students’ unpreparedness. By involving real-world stakeholders in architectural design studios – by which I mean individuals drawn from outside the academy with a professional, financial, or emotional investment in a project – educators may be able to create a more authentic learning environment that will better prepare students for architectural practice. This study describes my personal experiences as a student working on design projects ...


Concrete Slender Wall Design – Back To The Future, John W. Lawson, James Lai 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Concrete Slender Wall Design – Back To The Future, John W. Lawson, James Lai

Architectural Engineering

Slender concrete walls incorporated into tilt-up construction
over the past 60 years have performed remarkably well under
out-of-plane wind and seismic loads. While issues associated
with seismic wall anchorage gave this form of construction a
black-eye in the early days, the concrete walls themselves
have always performed very well even as far back as their
first use in the early 1900s. Yet the height-to-thickness
limitations in 1985 and earlier model building codes were
proved irrational and were removed. We as engineers expect
building codes to evolve and advance the state of the art with
each successive edition. The latest edition ...


Laurel Community Farmstand, Terje Johansen 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Laurel Community Farmstand, Terje Johansen

Horticulture and Crop Science

The project was for us to come up with a temporary farmstand that would be set up to sell fruits and vegetables but mainly to draw people to the area to bring awareness that there were plans to build a development at that location. Our group, Dana Curtice, Robert Vasilieff and Terje Johansen met with the developers three times. New ideas and information were presented in the first two meetings. The third meeting was to present our final design.

Barrio Capital De Analco: A Living Capitol Neighborhood For Santa Fe, New Mexico, The 2009 Urban Design Studio, Andrew C. Von Maur, Paula Dronen, Daniel Acevedo

Books

Diverse cultures and the high desert have always defined the unique American story of Santa Fe. For centuries Santa Feans have shaped their city’s buildings and spaces for economic opportunity while conserving the precious natural resources of northern New Mexico. This history of continuous change and preservation has yielded the distinctive identity of Santa Fe. Its spirit and values are manifested in its people and culture, its art and architecture, and its health-giving natural beauty. Within this context, Santa Fe seeks to cultivate a Living Tradition, rooted in its past and anticipating the future. Restored and improved for the ...


Resistance: Contemporary Architecture:Sustaining Identity 2, Jim Roche 2010 Dublin Institute of Technology

Resistance: Contemporary Architecture:Sustaining Identity 2, Jim Roche

Articles

Economic globalisation has facilitated a glut of ‘spectacle’ works of architecture worldwide that often fail to celebrate the genius loci of places or the divergence of human culture. With the current crisis in world capitalism causing a meltdown in the mad rush to overbuild our physical environment it is pertinent to consider once again that architecture can actually contribute to a broader existential understanding.

A recent one-day conference at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London posited such a proposition. Curated by the Finnish writer and theorist, Juhani Pallasmaa and moderated by Jonathan Glancy, the Architecture and Design Editor of ...


The Thinking Hand:Book Review, Jim Roche 2010 Dublin Institute of Technology

The Thinking Hand:Book Review, Jim Roche

Articles

In this new book Juhani Pallasmaa continues his phenomenological exploration begun in ‘The Eyes of the Skin (2005)’, with the ‘Thinking Hand’ here proffered as a metaphor for his contention that all our senses, have innate imbedded crucial skills which help us perform the most basic daily tasks – and to create inspired works of art and architecture.


Managing An Unstable Housing Market, Brendan Williams, Brian Hughes, Declan Redmond 2010 University College Dublin

Managing An Unstable Housing Market, Brendan Williams, Brian Hughes, Declan Redmond

Articles

Abstract
In this paper it is intended to place the recent experience of the Irish housing market in the context of economic and property market cycles, how these interact over a property cycle and lessons from recent policy experience including interventions in the housing area. In spatial terms the current
housing market can be seen as the result of an ad-hoc development led urban growth pattern which contributed to a dispersed development pattern with problems in oversupply. It is clear that alternative options exist to this approach and that evidence based management systems in terms of planning, development and financial ...


Beneficial Additions: Addressing Brutalist Architecture To Create A Financial And Spatial Synergy Between Historic Places Of Worship With Secular Mix-Use Building Additions, Johanna Luise Lofstrom 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Beneficial Additions: Addressing Brutalist Architecture To Create A Financial And Spatial Synergy Between Historic Places Of Worship With Secular Mix-Use Building Additions, Johanna Luise Lofstrom

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Rather than demolishing a historic house of worship due to lack of maintenance funding, this thesis proposes a design solution that preserves the structure while addressing the congregation's fundraising and programming needs. The goal is to design an example of how different identities of program can be combined while preserving the integrity of the historic structure. The thesis will assert that new additions can be beneficial as means of income for structures listed on the D.C. Landmark list that are exempt from federal funding and tax incentives. The end goal is to give structures that were not self-nominated ...


Putting American Democracy On A Pedestal: The Story Of The 1975-1976 Old Supreme Court And Old Senate Chamber Restorations, Christine Stewart Wells 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Putting American Democracy On A Pedestal: The Story Of The 1975-1976 Old Supreme Court And Old Senate Chamber Restorations, Christine Stewart Wells

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Examining how the restoration of the old Senate and old Supreme Court Chambers progressed reveals a connection to differing attitudes towards historic spaces that can occur following dips in a nation’s morale. At times of uncertainty and doubt, mementoes of a grander past can be used for reassurance in the midst of change. Attitudes towards the physical fabric of the U.S Capitol changed dramatically throughout the 20th century, as is reflected in the prolonged story of the old Senate and old Supreme Court restorations. The two historic chambers, used by the Senate until 1859 and the Court until ...


Behavioral Health Services Use Among Heads Of Homeless And Housed Poor Families, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane 2010 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Behavioral Health Services Use Among Heads Of Homeless And Housed Poor Families, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane

Departmental Papers (SPP)

Objectives. This study compares the use of and cost for behavioral health services among heads of homeless and housed poor families. Methods. Medicaid records for 59,135 heads of families receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families benefits were matched with data from Philadelphia’s municipal shelter system. Propensity score matching was used to select a matched control group to those identified as having been homeless between 1997 and 2003. Behavioral health services utilization was then assessed based on Medicaid claims records. Results. Substantially higher levels of behavioral health services use and corresponding costs were found among heads of families with ...

Polish Influence On American Synagogue Architecture, Samuel D. Gruber 2010 Syracuse University

Polish Influence On American Synagogue Architecture, Samuel D. Gruber

Religion

Hundreds of thousands of Jews from Poland came to America after 1880. Many built synagogues with details recalling synagogues in their homeland. Immigrant artisans brought motifs and methods of Poland. Many of these synagogues were small, so the relationship to Polish art was on the inside in the painted and carved decoration. Established architects also had access to Polish synagogues as sources. With publication of the Jewish Encyclopedia (1901-06) images of Polish synagogues, such as the Warsaw’s Tlomackie Street Synagogue, became part of many Jewish libraries. More Polish influence came in the 1950s. Most architects were building modern synagogues ...


The Architect As Expert Witness: A Survival Guide, Robert Greenstreet 2010 University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

The Architect As Expert Witness: A Survival Guide, Robert Greenstreet

Architecture Faculty Articles

Despite the challenges of deposition and courtroom pressures, expert witness work is both professionally interesting and financially rewarding, and many architects excel in the field. Being an expert does take you into the field of law, however, so it is advisable to sharpen up your skills of communication and presentation and thereby enhance your credibility and ultimate success.


"The Urban Praetor's Tribunal" In Spaces Of Justice In The Roman World, Eric Kondratieff 2010 Western Kentucky University

"The Urban Praetor's Tribunal" In Spaces Of Justice In The Roman World, Eric Kondratieff

History Faculty Publications

"Book abstract: Despite the crucial role played by both law and architecture in Roman culture, the Romans never developed a type of building that was specifically and exclusively reserved for the administration of justice: courthouses did not exist in Roman antiquity. The present volume addresses this paradox by investigating the spatial settings of Roman judicial practices from a variety of perspectives. Scholars of law, topography, architecture, political history, and literature concur in putting Roman judicature back into its concrete physical context, exploring how the exercise of law interacted with the environment in which it took place, and how the spaces ...


Following Industry's Leed : Municipal Adoption Of Private Green Building Standards, Sarah B. Schindler 2010 University of Maine School of Law

Following Industry's Leed : Municipal Adoption Of Private Green Building Standards, Sarah B. Schindler

Faculty Publications

Local governments are beginning to require new, privately constructed and funded buildings to be “green” buildings. Instead of creating their own, locally-derived definitions of green buildings, many municipalities are adopting an existing private standard created by members of the building industry: LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). This Article explains and assesses the privately promulgated LEED standards. It argues that the translation of LEED standards, which were intended to be voluntary, into law raises several theoretical and practical problems. Specifically, private green building ordinances that rely on LEED do not ensure a reduction in the negative local environmental impacts ...

Q1 Building, Jswd Architekten, Chaix & Morel Et Associés

Building Case Studies

400,000 metal “feathers” are anchored into 3,150 routered stainless steel moveable stalks, which can be mechanically controlled to transform the façade to allow more or less light into the building. The 1,280 motorized elements can be closed to create a more solid enclosure, follow the position of the sun, or be entirely open to allow maximum solar exposure.
