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 ...


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."

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.


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 ...

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 ...

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."

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."

Architecture Senior Theses

"The proposed intervention is to redesign and redevelop the currently vacant 1 Times Square tower with the program of a visual and performing arts school. The highly internalizes characteristics of this program will offer opportunities for the lively local culture of the area to exist not only on the interior, but also on the exterior of the building."


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."


[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."

This Will Kill That: Building Agility / Maneuvering The Inevitable Trasition Between The Present Day Library Of Paper Book And Digital Library Of The Future, Daniel Elmore

Architecture Senior Theses

"When fixed (inflexible) spaces are constructed based on variables, these spaces become outdated and eventually cease to be relevant... in architecture, when the variables that comprise a building change, the building itself needs to be flexible enough to adjust to said change. By creating non-static spaces, we can insure that our buildings are 'in the game' for the longest time possible."


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)."
