Liquid Infrastructure: Transnational Spaces Of Water, Timothy Gale 2011 Syracuse University

Liquid Infrastructure: Transnational Spaces Of Water, Timothy Gale

Full list of publications from School of Architecture

As a response to the geopolitical issues of water importation into London UK, a new political entity emerges: theThink Tank. Through coupling political architecture and water infrastructure, the Think Tank legitimizes itself as a dominant institution for water governance. The project reveals the existing spatial subversion of Think Tanks and physical subversion of Pumping Stations to alter existing political structures by allowing the public to access the territorial.

It does not attempt to solve conflict or tensions, it instead seeks to utilize the architectural methods of coupling new programs and functions in the city to create a political and public ...


Stochastic Hybrid Embodied Co2-Eq Analysis: An Application To The Irish Apartment Building Sector, Adolf Acquaye, Aidan Duffy, Biswajit Basu 2011 Technological University Dublin

Stochastic Hybrid Embodied Co2-Eq Analysis: An Application To The Irish Apartment Building Sector, Adolf Acquaye, Aidan Duffy, Biswajit Basu

Articles

Although embodiedCO2-eq analysis has seen recent developments as evident in the establishment of the ISO14040 and 14044 LCA standards, it is recognized that due to weaknesses in gathering data on product-related emissions,embodiedCO2-eq values are probabilistic. This paper presents a stochastic analysis of hybrid embodied CO2-eq in buildings to account for this weakness in traditional methods and, by way of example, applies it to an Irish construction-sector case study. Using seven apartment buildings, 70,000 results are simulated with Monte Carlo analysis and used to derive probabilistic and cumulative embodied CO2-eq intensity distributions for apartment buildings in Ireland. A Wakeby ...


Shop Like A Designer: How The Mass Media Perpetuates Non-Sustainable Design, B. Marie Minnich 2011 Eastern Michigan University

Shop Like A Designer: How The Mass Media Perpetuates Non-Sustainable Design, B. Marie Minnich

Master's Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

This study investigated the perception that mass media perpetuate critique of interior design projects using non-environmentally responsible design (non-ERD) assessment models, based on traditional ideological considerations, as opposed to models based on environmentally responsible design (ERD) philosophies. Using the Delphi technique, thirty keywords were selected, based on educators’ and practitioners’ content knowledge, then categorized into seven dimensions representing ERD or non-ERD attributes. These dimensions formed design assessment models, which included a distinction between ethical ERD attributes and aesthetic non-ERD attributes. Using content analysis, keywords were identified in randomly selected feature articles from three design magazines. Quantitative statistical analysis documented an ...


Environmental Value Engineering Assessment Of Horizontal Directional Drilling And Open Cut, Lameck Onsarigo 2011 Bowling Green State University

Environmental Value Engineering Assessment Of Horizontal Directional Drilling And Open Cut, Lameck Onsarigo

Master of Technology Management Plan II Graduate Projects

There has been a growing concern over the rate of deterioration of wastewater collection and water distribution systems in the United States. The ever-growing need for rehabilitation and replacement of these systems has led to the birth of a research program by the United States Environmental Protection Agency focused on addressing the water infrastructure needs. This program-Innovation and Research for Water Infrastructure for the 21st Century-lays emphasis on research focused on system rehabilitation. There is a marked change in the way that the public view the environmental needs with ‘green’ becoming ‘the new gold’. Man has been blamed, and rightfully ...

World Takes, David A. Schragger 2011 Syracuse University

World Takes, David A. Schragger

Architecture Senior Theses

"The emergence of the derelict and urban flora is a result of a myriad of current economic, political, and social conditions. The combination of the two offers an opportunity to institute a performative hybrid architecture. The remediation of the site can be achieved through combining the systems of the industrial and the organism. Because urban land is no longer valued, one can use the spaces to begin to generate temporal emergent patterns. The industrial topography can be dissolved through structured derelict ecologies throughout the city."


The Daylight Imperative, Eva Behringer 2011 Clemson University

The Daylight Imperative, Eva Behringer

All Theses

Hospitals in the US are typically built as thick buildings due to a desire to optimize travel distances and functional relationships within and between clinical and supporting departments. However, this building configuration disconnects building occupants in core work areas from daylight and views to nature. It also promotes high energy consumption due to excessive use of artificial lighting and air-condition. Yet, having access to daylight and the view to nature in buildings is important for human health and wellbeing, especially in hospitals. Daylight regulates the body«s circadian rhythm, is necessary to produce Vitamin D, affects mood, lowers stress, increases ...

Geothermal Emancipator, Brygida Michon 2011 Syracuse University

Geothermal Emancipator, Brygida Michon

Architecture Senior Theses

"Today as the factors determining nation’s independence are changing, Poland has a chance to decide on its political future and avoid the

involvement in the foreseen energy wars. It can happen through an appropriate utilization of its renewable energy resources on a larger scale,

which can ensure its nation‘s energy demand stability and therefore political concord.

The types of renewable resource that can best support the energy economy vary in different countries and climates. The choice of renewable

technology to be applied in a location should be supported by existing site conditions in order to determine which has ...


Festival Urbanism, Gabriella Morrone 2011 Syracuse University

Festival Urbanism, Gabriella Morrone

Architecture Senior Theses

"Festivals, as modes of architectural production, can exist as provocations for change in our urban environments. The festival exists as a moment in time and as a distributed system which allows for the transformative capacity of space and the reconsidering of present conditions. Negotiating its temporality, the festival provides a critique on our current and primarily static architectural manifestations and their relationships to our rapidly changing social environments. Festival Urbanism is an experimental design which models a mode of architectural practice rooted in participatory design. Simultaneously as the architect, the planner, and the curator, I propose the construction a virtual ...


Host City: Catalytic Alternatives For Olympic Planning, William Murillo 2011 Syracuse University

Host City: Catalytic Alternatives For Olympic Planning, William Murillo

Architecture Senior Theses

"The modern Olympic Games exist as one of the most prolific mega-events in global culture, heralding proclamations of peace,pan-unification, and sodality. A mega event can be understood as a high profile, world interest spectacle existing on a short term basis with a series of implications (both beneficial and detrimental) for its host, including socio-economic impacts through generation of tourism and infrastructural advancements, short term/long term employment spikes, real-estate boosts, cost overrun, and an effective branding of the host city with a plethora of potential collective identity issues reliant on themes employed, generation of a legacy/global image and ...

(Re)Formulating The Informal: Architecture As Identity For A Community, J Sebastien Coles 2011 Syracuse University

(Re)Formulating The Informal: Architecture As Identity For A Community, J Sebastien Coles

Architecture Senior Theses

The identity associated with the inhabitants of the “Bidonvilles” of Haiti

is arguably nonexistent aside from its connection to the impoverished conditions

of the Haitian slum/shantytown. This thesis contends that with the

insertion of a reformative intervention in the heart of the community promoting

a conducive and educational environment while overlaying a currently

absent infrastructure, will help in creating a positive inner growth within

the informal typology. More specifically architecture will act as a form of

“pride of place,” enticing interaction through the direct connection to

culture.

Reclaiming Vieques, Angela Albela 2011 Syracuse University

Reclaiming Vieques, Angela Albela

Architecture Senior Theses

" The physical environment at any point in history is the result of all the various events of the history of that place prior to that moment. It tends to manifest itself as a palimpsest of artifacts and mentifacts. It is my contention that architecture has the capacity to create a space of education and reflection about history. The objective of this process is to create an architecture that reclaims and presents the history that may have vanished. "
