Gothic Revival Outbuildings Of Antebellum Charleston, South Carolina, Erin Marie McNicholl 2010 Clemson University

Gothic Revival Outbuildings Of Antebellum Charleston, South Carolina, Erin Marie Mcnicholl

Master of Science in Historic Preservation Terminal Projects

The Gothic Revival was a movement of picturesque architecture that is found all over the United States on buildings built in the first half of the nineteenth century. In Antebellum Charleston people tended to cling to the classical styles of architecture even when the rest of the nation and Europe were enthusiastically embracing the different picturesque styles, such as Gothic Revival and Italianate. In the United States the Gothic Revival style can be found adorning buildings of every use. One of the unique applications to be found is on kitchen buildings and carriage houses. These applications exhibit traits of an ...


Volumes That Speak: The Architectural Books Of The Drayton Library Catalog And The Design Of Drayton Hall, Patricia Ann Lowe 2010 Clemson University

Volumes That Speak: The Architectural Books Of The Drayton Library Catalog And The Design Of Drayton Hall, Patricia Ann Lowe

Master of Science in Historic Preservation Terminal Projects

Drayton Hall, an early eighteenth-century plantation house on the Ashley River in Charleston, South Carolina, is widely considered to be the first Palladian house in the United States. Now owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Drayton Hall is something of a laboratory for the study of archaeology, landscape architecture, material culture, social history, and historic preservation. Though new discoveries are made almost every day at Drayton Hall, the origins of the house’s design remain unknown.

In 2009, the Drayton Library Catalog was discovered within the Drayton manuscript collection containing references to seven popular eighteenth-century architectural ...

El Refugio: Una Realidad Del Encuentro De Dos Países Asimétricos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Refugio: Una Realidad Del Encuentro De Dos Países Asimétricos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las fronteras en la actualidad son expresiones de realidades múltiples, al extremo de que en una frontera se pueden encontrar varias en simultáneo; porque se trata de la confluencia de situaciones asimétricas y heterogéneas. No solo que existen diferencias frente al otro distinto, sino que también se presentan una multiplicidad de aristas, tales como: económicas, políticas, sociales y culturales. De allí que las políticas que se diseñen deban seguir esta lógica plural y no continuar con el error de tener una sola propuesta para la totalidad y que ésta sea elaborada de manera distante de la frontera y con desconocimiento ...


El Riesgo Lo Construye El Déficit De Desarrollo. Entre Haití Y Chile, El Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Riesgo Lo Construye El Déficit De Desarrollo. Entre Haití Y Chile, El Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En estos últimos cinco años se han producido tres de los diez sismos más fuertes que se han registrado a lo largo del mundo en 110 años, lo cual muestra el incremento de los fenómenos y sus intensidades que, a su vez, producen un aumento vertiginoso de los impactos de la población y en la economía.


En El Límite De La Vida: La Violencia Fronteriza, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

En El Límite De La Vida: La Violencia Fronteriza, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En el Ecuador existe la percepción generalizada de que la frontera norte es una zona altamente violenta, producto de la contaminación del conflicto militar y de la alta delincuencia que se vive en Colombia. Es decir, que la violencia viene de afuera y que no es ecuatoriana. Dicha noción es más notoria cuando aparecen olas delincuenciales en Quito o Guayaquil, que disparan inmediatamente la atención de los medios de comunicación y de los voceros gubernamentales para explicar el hecho a través de la violencia existente en el país vecino y de la frontera como puerta de entrada. De allí, la ...


El Centro Histórico Como Objeto De Deseo, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Centro Histórico Como Objeto De Deseo, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El centro histórico -como un todo- es el espacio público por excelencia de la ciudad y, por tanto, el elemento fundamental de la integración fundamental de la integración social y de la estructuración de la ciudad. Como eso no ocurre en la actualidad -dado que existe una agorafobia- el centro histórico aparece como objeto del deseo y como un proyecto de escala variable, según su significado patrimonial. De esta conclusión matriz devienen otras de no menor valor como son: - Con el nuevo patrón de urbanización en América Latina -de introspección cosmopolita- la ciudad construida adquiere una nueva función y un ...

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

In spring 2010, the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning at the University of Massachusetts Amherst was asked to complete a landscape planning study, the “Western Woburn Greenway Study” for the City of Woburn, MA. The study was undertaken by a team of graduate students, supervised by Professor Jack Ahern. The goals of that study are as follows.

The City of Woburn currently has two large parcel groups of undeveloped land, Whispering Hill (the north focus area) and Winning/Shannon Farms (the south focus area) that are, or may become, available for acquisition (see “Scope of Project” below). The ...


The 21st Century Civic Identity: Redefining The Small Town City Hall, LeEllen M. Lewis 2010 Roger Williams University

The 21st Century Civic Identity: Redefining The Small Town City Hall, Leellen M. Lewis

Architecture Theses

Identity is defined as the distinguishing character or personality of an individual. Throughout life, we as individuals, strive to create and uphold a sense of identity. Once our identity is established, we feel more comfortable with ourselves and our surroundings. However, at a larger scale, what happens when a community lacks a sense of identity? Small towns especially struggle with finding their identity and creating a suitable and exciting Civic infrastructure. Often there is a lack of involvement in the community. There is no drive for contributing to the majority, whether through community service, town council meetings, government, or community ...


Design As A Tool For Architectural + Social Development: The Kalighat Women’S Resource Center, Lindsay Brugger 2010 Roger Williams University

Design As A Tool For Architectural + Social Development: The Kalighat Women’S Resource Center, Lindsay Brugger

Architecture Theses

This project aims to serve, and ultimately enable, those who fall outside the realm of social recognition; specifically, women working in prostitution. The project will provide a place for these women to learn alternative skills, become educated, and rediscover themselves. This effort will be of particular importance to women aged 25-35. It is at this age when the women become less viable within their profession. Without a minimum number of clients the women are unable to pay their daily rent. Since very few have any sort of financial savings, many women end up either on the street, or becoming madams ...


The Soundscape Planning Of Mountain Park In Holyoke, Massachusetts, Brian Clayton Giggey 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Soundscape Planning Of Mountain Park In Holyoke, Massachusetts, Brian Clayton Giggey

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Masters Projects

The soundscape of a place is simply its acoustic environment, with the listener situated within the center of the sonic landscape (Porteous and Mastin, 1985). Soundscapes can be adjusted with proper planning, site analysis and design. Often overlooked by design and planning professionals, sounds are a part of the biological, social and spiritual context which needs to be considered if good outdoor environments are to be provided (Hedfors, 2003). With its close proximity to the Whiting Street Reservoir and Holyoke Range, Mountain Park provides a terrific opportunity for an outdoor amphitheater, a cultural resource deeply needed in Western Massachusetts. Significant ...


F.F.A: Forensic + Funerary Architecture, Michael P. Cafro 2010 Roger Williams University

F.F.A: Forensic + Funerary Architecture, Michael P. Cafro

Architecture Theses

This thesis document proposes the notion of an architecture that incorporates a three part program which involves violent and natural death cases. With scientific and larger public gathering spaces proposed in the building’s program, the users are grouped in a common environment that deals the subject of death. The general public are a witness to the building’s architecture and have the ability to react and become aware of their surroundings and possibly allow for an appreciation toward life.


Buffalo Outer Harbor Quays, Ryan Decker 2010 Roger Williams University

Buffalo Outer Harbor Quays, Ryan Decker

Architecture Theses

Buffalo, a once prominent American city hit by hard times, has the opportunity to rebuild. It has industrial resources and transport options. It has a booming education system and medical business. Its technology sector is rapidly expanding. The city has a chance right now to create new glory days. This project is about transforming a forgotten piece of land, a large swath of man-made waterfront that since the fall of Bethlehem Steel has been nothing more than equipment storage, on arguably the best portion of the city’s waterfront. Combining heavy industry, shipping, living, working, and waterfront recreation into one ...

Stained Glass In The Holy City A Catalogue Of Ecclesiastical Stained Glass In Charleston, South Carolina, Eileen Grogan 2010 Clemson University

Stained Glass In The Holy City A Catalogue Of Ecclesiastical Stained Glass In Charleston, South Carolina, Eileen Grogan

Master of Science in Historic Preservation Terminal Projects

Charleston, South Carolina, is internationally known for its characteristic architecture and commitment to historic preservation. A wide variety of religious denominations have been represented here since the city was founded in 1670, and ecclesiastical buildings play an important role in the city’s cultural and architectural history. Sailors returning to this early trading port dubbed it “The Holy City” for its church spires, so numerous they were visible even from out at sea. Many houses of worship on the peninsula are home to stained glass windows which date from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. These windows are historically ...

Utilizing Jicarilla Apache Knowledge To Enrich The Watershed Watch Program Curriculum For The Benefit Of The Jicarilla Apache Youth, Rebecca Rae

Architecture and Planning ETDs

The thesis explores the notions of decolonization, Indigenous knowledge, and empirical knowledge of place as a foundation for implementing Jicarilla Apache knowledge into the Watershed Watch Program. Two lesson plans were created utilizing Jicarilla Apache stories and knowledge to teach Jicarilla Apache youth about the water cycle, plants, and culture. By connecting Indigenous teachings with western scientific teachings Jicarilla Apache youth will gain a greater understanding of the natural environment with relevance to their heritage.


Building Energy Labeling: A Path To Improved Energy Performance For Commercial Buildings, Ronald Nelson 2010 University of New Mexico

Building Energy Labeling: A Path To Improved Energy Performance For Commercial Buildings, Ronald Nelson

Architecture and Planning ETDs

Architects, engineers, and builders have a unique opportunity to lead society and the economy through the current difficult times. Since studies show that buildings account for nearly half the nations energy consumption, our power derives from our ability to dramatically cut the energy consumption through energy efficient refurbishment of the vast existing building inventory and through energy efficient designs for new construction. This conservation has an amazing threefold benefit: through reduced consumption we extend the life of our limited natural resources; through reduced consumption we reduce our emission of greenhouse gases and thus reduce the threat of climate change; and ...
