Starter House For An Architect, Alex Hale, Matthew Sener 2010 Iowa State University

Starter House For An Architect, Alex Hale, Matthew Sener

Datum: student journal of architecture

The Starter House is a 1000 sq. ft. home situated on a wooded site in Ames, Iowa. Students designed these homes imagining themselves as a recently-graduated client, emphasizing spatial efficiency and the act of dwelling - particularly in a natural environment. This project served as a springboard into a more developed design with passive solar considerations.

Introduction, Datum

Datum: student journal of architecture

The methods by which we create architecture are abstract and vast. Some designers sketch, some build a plethora of study models, some write, some read, etc ... but everyone has their own mode of working. We often look at those who have come before us to see how they work.

Current Communications, Jake Groth 2010 Iowa State University

Current Communications, Jake Groth

Datum: student journal of architecture

It is often said that as an architecture student you will learn more from your fellow students than from your professors. During my first year in the professional program I found this statement to hold true. Coming from the freshman core program, I had my own ideas of what I thought architecture at Iowa State was. Reality proved to be quite the opposite.

I wrote this piece the day before the deadline. I knew about it for months. I knew my topic, I read books, wrote notes, used a green highlighter. I discussed it and thought about it to great length.


An Examination Of The Deteriorative Mechanisms And Enabling Factors At The Wanamaker Memorial Tower In Philadelphia, Katherine Verone 2010 University of Pennsylvania

An Examination Of The Deteriorative Mechanisms And Enabling Factors At The Wanamaker Memorial Tower In Philadelphia, Katherine Verone

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The Wanamaker Tower is in a precarious physical state; as will be demonstrated in this thesis; exterior problems with source moisture control have let to the start of failure of the decorative marble cladding of the interior spaces. The physical conservation problem is compounded by the absence of a constituency or advocacy for stewardship of the tower due to family disinterest and the dissolution of the parish congregation. This thesis will examine the condition of the Tower and the mechanisms of deterioration leading to those conditions. This thesis will also present a conservation plan aimed at addressing the treatment of ...


Alveolar Erosion And Its Conservation Recommendations For The Sandstone Masonry At Durham Castle, Tiffani L. Simple 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Alveolar Erosion And Its Conservation Recommendations For The Sandstone Masonry At Durham Castle, Tiffani L. Simple

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This research addresses the sandstone masonry of Durham Castle, a World Heritage site located in Durham, England. The study encompasses a focus on its current condition, deterioration mechanisms, and in particular, alveolar erosion, and the performance of previous repair techniques. The stone and weathering observed at the castle appear to be consistent across the entire site, regardless of age or location and are representative of other buildings in the area. The obvious diagnosis therefore appears to be related to the geo-chemical nature of the stone more than any other single factor. Alveolar erosion is particularly evident and poses the greatest ...


Evaluation Of Cleaning Methods At The Fleisher Art Memorial Sanctuary, Alison K. Haley 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Evaluation Of Cleaning Methods At The Fleisher Art Memorial Sanctuary, Alison K. Haley

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The thesis proposes to investigate cleaning methods for the differing material surfaces (stone and plaster) that are intended to appear uniform, as is the case for the south interior wall of the Fleisher Art Memorial Sanctuary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Effectiveness of cleaning methods is evaluated based upon uniformity of appearance, precision, and degree of damage to surface. Methods of measurement as well as damage thresholds have been established.

This project attempts to answer the following questions:

  • What is the best approach to cleaning differing substrates in order to achieve a uniform result?
  • What effect do these techniques have on the ...


A Technical Study And Conservation Proposal For The Glass Mosaic Decoration Of Villa Caparra In Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, Yaritza Hernández 2010 University of Pennsylvania

A Technical Study And Conservation Proposal For The Glass Mosaic Decoration Of Villa Caparra In Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, Yaritza Hernández

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis examines the exuberant cement-embedded glass mosaic ornamentation of Villa Caparra, an early architect’s residence in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico in order to document the materials, methods of fabrication and installation; and, to analyze the present condition. The study will rely on archival records, in situ investigation, material analysis and physical testing with the purpose of developing a preliminary conservation plan for remedial and long term preservation.
