From Ark To Art : The 20-Year Journey Of The Civic, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, From Jewish Temple To Multi-Purpose Community Facility, John J. Boyle Iii

Cleveland Memory

The Civic is a former Jewish temple located in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, an inner-ring suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. The building was close to being abandoned and possibly torn down after its former congregation built a new facility farther out in the suburbs. This study describes how a former temple came to serve the community in a new and different way in the secular world. This study will chronicle the Civic as a historical building; describe the efforts to remake it into a multi-purpose building that is a community asset; and serve as a model to other communities interested in adapting ...

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.


My Architecture, Max Mahaffey 2010 Iowa State University

My Architecture, Max Mahaffey

Datum: student journal of architecture

I've written this paper once before. I was in my third year of architecture school, writing what I believed to be the most important essay I had ever written. The assignment was to write a manifesto for myself: to identify and articulate some conceptual thread or methodology present in all of my work; to ask myself, what the hell was I doing?

Touch Objects, Justin Oldenhuis

With the rise of technology and mass production, our world has become an increasingly visual place. We are slaves to our sense of sight. Though these objects cannot completely free us from that sight, they can begin to illuminate another of our senses, our sense of touch.

The Starter House is a 1000 sq. ft. home situated on a wooded site in Ames, Iowa.

This project served as a springboard into a more developed design with passive solar considerations.

Creating Community: Mixed Use Development In New Bedford, Ma, Matthew J.B. Cate 2010 Roger Williams University

Creating Community: Mixed Use Development In New Bedford, Ma, Matthew J.B. Cate

Architecture Theses

In creating a new type of community for New Bedford, MA, there was an awareness of both the existing community, context, and people, while realizing a need for change. The design uses the concept of adapting the existing density into two modes. First, merging the existing residential fabric and merging it with a public program including both commercial and retail development. Second, focusing that new typology into a smaller more refi ned space, while creating new public areas for communal enjoyment and development. Creating such an idea of living takes the existing unused exterior spaces allotted to the typical housing ...


Adaptive Housing: Transformation And Growth In The Urban Environment, Kevin Mowatt 2010 Roger Williams University

Adaptive Housing: Transformation And Growth In The Urban Environment, Kevin Mowatt

Architecture Theses

The proposal for an adaptive housing project and its chosen location arose from two obstacles that all modern cities and the world as a whole, face. The urban environment is revered for its cultural amalgam of people and wide range of demographics; however with this density and diversity comes a shortage of one type or another of commodious housing. Additionally and consequentially, the city must expand and build new buildings, leaving older, unsuitable building vacant. An adaptive architecture would allow families to grow and demographics to shift within the established community, all the while reinvigorating that second obstacle the city ...
