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."


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 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."


Conditions Of A Simulated Society:Reorienting The Real Estate Of The 1 Times Square Tower, Bryan J. Bellissimo 2010 Syracuse University

Conditions Of A Simulated Society:Reorienting The Real Estate Of The 1 Times Square Tower, Bryan J. Bellissimo

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 2010 Syracuse University

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)."


Bridge_Works, Chris Driscoll 2010 Syracuse University

Bridge_Works, Chris Driscoll

Architecture Senior Theses

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."


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."


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."

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."

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 ...

Crete, Nebraska, is on the cutting edge of a global economy in which people are migrating to places that offer jobs and a better quality of life. Between 2000 and 2008, the population of Crete rose from 6,028 to 6,241, an increase of3.5%. In the year 2001, when the initial study was conducted, Crete's local Farmland pork processing plant increased its workforce from 1,200 to 1,650. In today's economy, these 450 new jobs are likely to attract workers from around the world. In recent years, for example, workers have come to Crete from ...
