The Architectural Drawing, Luke Taylor-Brown Oct 1999

The Architectural Drawing, Luke Taylor-Brown

Architecture Thesis Prep

"It is the intent of this investigation to explore the translation which occurs between architectural drawing and built architecture. This translation occurs over a gap which exists between the realm of conception and the realm of construction. All forms of architectural representation (drawings, computer or physical models) bridge theis gap in some way and, by doing so, translate architectural meaning."


On Details, W. Elijah Hoisington Oct 1999

On Details, W. Elijah Hoisington

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis makes the premise that detailing connections is the carrier of the designer's architectural intentions, and that through its expression is the method through which a construct grounds itself in a historical context and within a site."


Advertising / Gender Studies, Delia Nevola Oct 1999

Advertising / Gender Studies, Delia Nevola

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The architectural blurring of genered space. IMages are presented to society as the representation of men/women, and what it means to be one versus the other. This imagery takes form in the products that are produced and dvertised. Architecture will therefore take on the role of (re)presentation, meaning the presentation of products and the representation of genes, through the investigation of binary opposites. These binary opposites, those that are assumed by society, become the architectural elements to demonstrate the presumed differences between genders. The intervention which establishes a blue between these binaries advocates a degenderization of architecture."


The Virtual Real, Kurt Schnarr Oct 1999

The Virtual Real, Kurt Schnarr

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Digital technologies have led to the transformation of different types of information into binary form. This transformation changes the way one perceives materiality, space, and its relationship to information. On one level. cyberspace creates a condition in which communication, travel, and education occur at a fast and efficient rate. On another level, cyberspace allows one to exist within a different condition, another world created by simulation and virtual reality. However, one cannot engage these virtual worlds without the existence of physical space. Aside from being an essential element for human existence, physical space evokes human contact, which must occur to ...


Narrative Architecture, Leah E. Cohen Oct 1999

Narrative Architecture, Leah E. Cohen

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Architecture reveals narrative through the facilitation of sequence and the expression of ritual. Ritual is based on archetypal actions."


Architecture Leading To A Meaningful Place, Maria M. Agostini May 1999

Architecture Leading To A Meaningful Place, Maria M. Agostini

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Properties such as light, scale, and proportion form spaces that effect out perception of a place, but light is most important. The creation of a space and the sequence to reach an area, according to these properties, will affect positively the contemplative state of mind of an individual or a community. The application of said properties, but most importantly light, through the construction of view, forms, materials, textures, and the use of colors will create a narrative that will encounter and achieve individually or collectively a contemplative state of mind.'


In Response, Chip Young Apr 1999

In Response, Chip Young

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The thesis is architecture (host of program, activity, and event) as a catalyst to disrupting urban boundaries. The goal is to create an architectural response to contemporary urban developemt that has created boundaries and decreased the dynamism of 'city'."


Roosevelt Island: Completing An Urban Community, Karin M. Kilgore Jan 1999

Roosevelt Island: Completing An Urban Community, Karin M. Kilgore

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The thesis became an architectural exploration of what makes neighborhoods and community at two scales: at the scale of the city (macrocosm), represented by the urban plan; and at the scale of the individual (microcosm), represented by the concept of house and housing. At these two contrasting scales, the main focus of the study was:

To explore how an urban design can shape community; To explore the role housing plays in the making of urban fabric/neighborhood."
