Interactive Music Experience, Gaetan Jacques Jul 3013

Interactive Music Experience, Gaetan Jacques

Gaetan Jacques

In February of 2012, alternative rock band OK Go released a music video for their song “Needing/Getting”. The video explores a creative way of playing music, by driving a car through a constructed, choreographed environment. A driving track was set up as a large musical instrument which was “played” by a car. Architects, musicians, and artist are looking for innovative ways to develop active relationships between people, music, and architecture. The traditional passive relationship of these three is static, a design that does not promote interaction or participation. If we consider, behind a performance, there is a great deal ...

Windows On The World: The Aesthetics Of Difference In Neoliberal New York, Nicholas Gamso Jun 2016

Windows On The World: The Aesthetics Of Difference In Neoliberal New York, Nicholas Gamso

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)

This dissertation seeks to refine critical methods for interpreting global cities and their cultures, charting an aesthetic history of neoliberal New York — from the 1929 regional plan to the present. Surveying a range of literature, art criticism, and planning discourse, I argue that the global has served as the dominant motif of spatial production and political power during this watershed era. I trace this argument through analyses of midcentury planning’s global spatial imaginings, gentrification and imperial metaphor, transnational encounter in World literature, and the city’s contemporary waste and recourse imaginaries. While I follow the Marxist account of the ...

Through a case study based in the City of Grapevine, Texas, this research analyzes factors influencing TIF districts and their effectiveness in achieving their respective goals.


Design And Optimization Of Membrane-Type Acoustic Metamaterials, Matthew G. Blevins May 2016

Design And Optimization Of Membrane-Type Acoustic Metamaterials, Matthew G. Blevins

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

One of the most common problems in noise control is the attenuation of low frequency noise. Typical solutions require barriers with high density and/or thickness. Membrane-type acoustic metamaterials are a novel type of engineered material capable of high low-frequency transmission loss despite their small thickness and light weight. These materials are ideally suited to applications with strict size and weight limitations such as aircraft, automobiles, and buildings. The transmission loss profile can be manipulated by changing the micro-level substructure, stacking multiple unit cells, or by creating multi-celled arrays. To date, analysis has focused primarily on experimental studies in plane-wave ...

The Effects Of Tones In Noise On Human Annoyance And Performance, Joonhee Lee Apr 2016

The Effects Of Tones In Noise On Human Annoyance And Performance, Joonhee Lee

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

Building mechanical equipment often generates prominent tones because most systems include rotating parts like fans and pumps. These tonal noises can cause unpleasant user experiences in spaces and, in turn, lead to increased complaints by building occupants. Currently, architectural engineers can apply the noise criteria guidelines in standards or publications to achieve acceptable noise conditions for assorted types of spaces. However, these criteria do not apply well if the noise contains perceptible tones. The annoyance thresholds experienced by the general population with regards to the degree of tones in noise is a significant piece of knowledge that has not been ...

Reviews: The Architecture Of Happiness By Alain De Botton (New York: Pantheon, 2006) And From A Cause To A Style, By Nathan Glazer (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2007), Daniel Naegele Apr 2016

Reviews: The Architecture Of Happiness By Alain De Botton (New York: Pantheon, 2006) And From A Cause To A Style, By Nathan Glazer (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2007), Daniel Naegele

Daniel J. Naegele

One might reasonably expect that Nathan Glazer, in his From a Cause to a Style: Modernist Architecture’s Encounter with the American City, and Alain de Botton, in The Architecture of Happiness, would take many similar positions. Like Jane Jacobs and Robert Venturi in the 1960s, and like many architectural theorists since, both Glazer and De Botton take issue with Modern architecture. However, both books are something other than theory, and neither author is a designer. And unlike Venturi or Aldo Rossi, Colin Rowe or Charles Moore, neither proposes architectural solutions to his concerns.


Betimlenemeyen Nasıl Fotoğraflanır / How To Photograph The Ineffable, Daniel Naegele Apr 2016

Betimlenemeyen Nasıl Fotoğraflanır / How To Photograph The Ineffable, Daniel Naegele

Daniel J. Naegele

Mimarisinin fotoğraflariyla, Le Corbusier perspektif mekanın otoritesini sorgulayabiliyor. Fotoğraf makinesi perspektif ile görür. Fotoğraf makinesi asla yalan söylemez? Peki ya doğruyu yansıtan bir imge perspektiften yoksun ise? Bir fotoğraf bir mekan hakkında baska türlü tahayyül edilemeyecek bir doğruyu söyleyebilir mi?

--

With photographs of his architecture, Le Corbusier could call into question the authority of perspectival space. The camera sees in perspective. The camera never lies. But what if the truth-telling image were a-perspectival? Can a photograph tell a truth about a space that cannot otherwise be known?


Pitstop Confessional, Cayce Davis Apr 2016

Pitstop Confessional, Cayce Davis

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

This conceptual project considers the region of the South to be a vibrant historical artifact with a valuable future tense. The Pitstop Confessional positions the cultural lineage of the saloon and roadside diner typologies within their contemporary highway context and critiques the morphology of the Southern dining experience from the one-room house to the asphalt edgescapes of suburbia. Waffle House is designed as a truer version of itself – a roadside sanctuary. An assertion is made through spatial gestures, allusions to religious rituals, and the written word that the Waffle House dining experience – however detached from the presuppositions society has about ...

Getting La To Net Positive Competition For Innovation In Design, Alexander Lohr Apr 2016

Getting La To Net Positive Competition For Innovation In Design, Alexander Lohr

Architectural Engineering

For my senior project I participated in the Getting LA to Net Positive Competition for Innovation in Design competition which is part of the living building challenge. The Living Building Challenge™ is a building certification program, advocacy tool and philosophy that define advanced measure of sustainability in the building environment. The Challenge is comprised of seven performance categories called Petals: Place, Water, Energy, Health & Happiness, Materials, Equity and Beauty. Petals are subdivided into a total of twenty Imperatives, each of which focuses on a specific sphere of influence. The competition is run by the Living Building Challenge Collaborative: Los Angeles.

For the competition the class ARCH 351 has decided to do a redesign of the Olympic Village. Los Angeles will host the summer games in 2024 and already have a plan for their Olympic Village; the ARCH 351 class hopes to accomplish an Olympic Village design that will better fit LA for the future as opposed to the current design which they feel only reflects the whims of the moment.

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

CLAIMING MARKET PLACE UMass Amherst Design Center in Springfield

Department of Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning

The Senior Urban Design Studio developed a tangible vision for the revitalization of downtown Springfield through creating ideas for the underutilized Market Place block and reconnect it to the urban fabric. We carried out small-scale, temporary urban design installations as wayfinding interventions in the spirit of “tactical urbanism”. These interventions had a real target: the students’ work supported the opening of the Holiday Market in the Market Street block from Thanksgiving to Christmas. The interventions were taken one step further with the development of phased ...

Architecture In The Humanities is an online database through University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s website. It strives to connect architecture to works of literature, film, theatre and art either through a historical or fictional event that is portrayed as having taken place in or around the architecture. Every year a UCARE student picks an area of interest to research. This year I have chosen to focus on modern architecture specifically designed by Irish architects or Irish architecture firms.


Quantification Of Time Varying Directivity Of Musical Instruments, Madeline A. Davidson Apr 2016

Quantification Of Time Varying Directivity Of Musical Instruments, Madeline A. Davidson

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

Static directivity patterns of musical instruments have been mapped somewhat extensively, but little research has been done in analyzing the directivity patterns of musical instruments over time as they play. Directivity patterns can be affected by variables such as instrument, frequency, dynamics, and style. This thesis proposes a set of quantification methods of time varying directivity, all derived from the maximum Directivity Index analyzed at consecutive short-duration time windows comprising the musical excerpt. The instrumental recordings used in this paper are taken in an anechoic chamber using either a 5, 13, or 32 multichannel setup. From the values of maximum ...


Urban Beach Venues: Vulnerability And Sustainability In The Face Of Climate Change, Michael Raybould, David Anning, Liz Fredline, Dan Ware Mar 2016

Urban Beach Venues: Vulnerability And Sustainability In The Face Of Climate Change, Michael Raybould, David Anning, Liz Fredline, Dan Ware

Michael Raybould

This paper investigates the threats to beach venues posed by climate change and attempts to identify strategies that might be adopted by coastal managers and event managers to ensure that beaches continue to be viable event and recreation venues into the future. Analysis of coastal management research, local council records and tender documents, maps and plans of coastal works identifies six specific strategies for minimising the impacts of climate change on beach venues. These strategies aim to protect existing beach venues, increase the supply of alternative venues, minimise the event tourism impacts of negative media coverage of beach erosion events ...

Towards A Pedagogy Of Comparative Visualization In 3d Design Disciplines, James Birt, Jonathan Nelson, Dirk Hovorka Mar 2016

Towards A Pedagogy Of Comparative Visualization In 3d Design Disciplines, James Birt, Jonathan Nelson, Dirk Hovorka

Jonathan J Nelson

Spatial visualization and interpretation are important skills for designers. However, these skills generally require significant experiential development over the course of years. Visualizations allow the human brain to convey complex spatial concepts in intuitive, navigable and manipulable forms improving learner outcomes and perceptions. But often these visualizations are studied as single modality solutions. Dual modality and multimedia presentation studies show positive improvements in learner outcomes but dual modality is often difficult to compare. This paper presents ongoing research in the use of comparative multimodal visualizations produced with emerging technology solutions in 3D Design classrooms. Presented are previous findings from multimedia ...

Cellular Tessellation, Chris Knapp, Jonathan Nelson, Michael Parsons, Nathan Freeman

Jonathan J Nelson

Cellular Tessellation is a small yet generous pavilion put on display as part of the Sydney Vivid Light festival in 2014. The project is both spatial and aesthetic, bringing the quality of architectural inhabitation and visceral experience to an urban festival which is typically limited to visual engagement.


Arclight, Chris Knapp, Jonathan Nelson, Andrew Kudless Mar 2016

Arclight, Chris Knapp, Jonathan Nelson, Andrew Kudless

Jonathan J Nelson

Arclight is a lighting installation put on display as part of the Sydney Vivid festival in 2015. This spatial and atmospheric project brings the quality of architectural inhabitation and visceral experience to an urban festival through a biomimetic proposition emulating dense bundled systems found in the natural environment, such as Australian mangroves or Strangler Fig trees, using parametric tools and digital fabrication processes. The installation serves as a register of the nonhuman environment. Embedded LEDs parse an environmentally driven data set, which provides a dynamic ambient interaction rather than the direct sensing of human actions. The result is an experience ...


Prototyping Of Composite Structural Envelopes Through Cnc And Robotic Fabrication, Chris Knapp, Jonathan Nelson Mar 2016

Prototyping Of Composite Structural Envelopes Through Cnc And Robotic Fabrication, Chris Knapp, Jonathan Nelson

Jonathan J Nelson

The paper explores the results of a series of practice-based research investigations of full-scale building envelope prototypes generated from parametric design strategies. The work strives to achieve integration of structure and cladding using digital fabrication (CNC and multi-axis robot) techniques. The projects employ a range of sheet materials: principally plywood, plastics, and aluminium composite panels; and integrated architectural lighting and daylighting. Two key projects are discussed in detail: habitable pavilions which allow for investigation of fabrication, assembly, structural capacity, durability, and transport. Each project sets the goal of achieving doublecurvature, load-bearing surfaces. This is explored through either panelisation or tessellation ...
