An Evidence-Based Approach To Designing Low-Income Housing Communities, Kaitlin Ward Jun 2017

An Evidence-Based Approach To Designing Low-Income Housing Communities, Kaitlin Ward

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

In the field of interior design, functionality and aesthetics are combined to create spaces that are beautiful, but also serve a variety of purposes. Broadly categorized into residential and commercial sectors, interior design considers the health and wellness of users in a space, and strives to improve the standard of living. Quality interior design is often treated as a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, although the field can and should be applied to benefit a wider demographic. Intelligent design and space planning can be used as a tool for community-building, especially among populations often overlooked due to reasons such ...

Ruin-Naissance, Fatma Gonca Tunc Apr 2017

Ruin-Naissance, Fatma Gonca Tunc

Architecture Senior Theses

Ruin-naissance is the term I use to describe not only the resurrection of an archeological site, but also the rebirth of an idea about how we think about ruins and how new construction can enhance the experience of these kinds of sites.

The principle contention of this thesis is that a better understanding of the fragmented evidence presented by an archeological site can be seen through the lens of a contemporary architectural intervention that responds sensitively to an ancient site. In doing this, the intervention needs to address issues of identity, narrative and historiography. The new architecture should not ignore ...

This paper explores the history of this structure by examining the legends, myths, and facts behind it and the surrounding land. The myths and legends are linked to Ireland’s old Celtic beliefs and explain much of the interesting landscape surrounding the massive structure. Majority of the paper focuses on the factual history of Kylemore which starts from the first construction of the castle all the way to how it is being used today. The Victorian castle has had many owners throughout ...


Rethinking Preservation At Fort Union National Monument, Silvia Callegari Jan 2017

Rethinking Preservation At Fort Union National Monument, Silvia Callegari

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis examines past and current preservation techniques at Fort Union National Monument, New Mexico in light of increasing threats from climate change, inadequate stabilization practices, and diminishing agency resources, and aims to make recommendations for future preservation work at the site. Fort Union National Monument is the largest existing earthen ruin in North America and historically served as an active military fort and depot on the Santa Fe Trail between 1851-1891. The fort was abandoned in 1891, pillaged by locals for materials, and prior to the stabilization of the site in 1956, the adobe walls were left to weather ...

Architecture + Havoc: The Agency Of Historic Sites During Conflict, Emily Gruendel Jan 2017

Architecture + Havoc: The Agency Of Historic Sites During Conflict, Emily Gruendel

Theses (Historic Preservation)

For the fields of architecture and preservation, havocked environments are catalysts for our work managing, manipulating, and reviving the built condition. Over the last few decades, however, technological advancements have transformed the way in which the world sees conflict. No longer must we wait for a peace—havoc reveals itself immediately on our screens. It is critical for the fields to extend their role beyond pre-conflict preparations and post-conflict response. The built environment has just as much agency as warring parties do, and it is essential to critically engage with the physical and humanistic realities of conflict zones.

This thesis ...


Rooted In History: Historic Preservation As A Foundation For Community Engagement Along The Lower Schuylkill, Starr E. Herr-Cardillo Jan 2017

Rooted In History: Historic Preservation As A Foundation For Community Engagement Along The Lower Schuylkill, Starr E. Herr-Cardillo

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Once the centerpiece of a rolling pastoral landscape, punctuated by some of the most important ornamental and botanical gardens of the colonial and early national eras, the Lower Schuylkill metamorphosed over the next century into one of the most polluted and environmentally degraded waterways in the country. In this thesis I will discuss the historical, environmental, and political themes that have shaped the evolution of the Lower Schuylkill region. Reviewing analyses and critiques of neoliberal urbanism, particularly in the context of waterfront revitalization projects, I identify ways in which preservation and related fields might support or resist a development-driven agenda ...


Applications Of Cultural Landscape Studies In Single-Street Historic Districts, Arielle Simone Harris Jan 2017

Applications Of Cultural Landscape Studies In Single-Street Historic Districts, Arielle Simone Harris

Theses (Historic Preservation)

For decades, Philadelphia has ineffectively balanced increasing development pressures with protection of the city’s historic resources, resulting in the loss of locally and nationally significant places. To the extent that local preservation efforts have been effective, they have relied heavily on the use of historic districts (roughly seventy percent of all buildings in the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places owe their protection to this mechanism). Nonetheless, nominations of traditional, neighborhood-bound historic districts have been tabled or dismissed by the Philadelphia Historical Commission for over a decade. The impasse stems from misguided perceptions about property values and building maintenance, political ...

Comparative Analysis Of Select Sustainable Wood Preservative Systems For Heritage Conservation: A Termite Resistance Laboratory Testing Program On Radiata Pine, Katharine George Jan 2017

Comparative Analysis Of Select Sustainable Wood Preservative Systems For Heritage Conservation: A Termite Resistance Laboratory Testing Program On Radiata Pine, Katharine George

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Today, the naturally harvested wood material of the past, prized for durability, is increasing difficult to obtain in substantial quantities with no certainty of replenishing a diminishing resource. The building and heritage conservation industries are in need of an environmentally friendly wood-based product whose service life meets the expectations of its users. The wood preservative industry aims to mitigate this gap in the present-day wood industry by minimizing wood’s vulnerability to the consumptive natural environment. Generally, wood preservatives are chemicals that are toxic to common decay fungi and/or insects, or are chemicals that somehow modify or protect the ...


Improving The Flexural Strength Of Bowed Marble Panels Through Mechanical Treatment, Danielle Pape Jan 2017

Improving The Flexural Strength Of Bowed Marble Panels Through Mechanical Treatment, Danielle Pape

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This research examined the conservation options for thin marble cladding as used in Post War architecture in the United States. The phenomenon of bowed marble panels was studied as early as the 1910s, and literature on the topic became more prolific in the 1990s following early catastrophic failures of entire Post War building façades less than 20 years after construction due to little knowledge of material properties. The current hypothesis is that thin marble panels deform due to the disaggregation of calcite grains from environmental hysteresis. Prominent case studies include the Amoco Building in Chicago and Finlandia Hall in Helsinki ...

The Preservation Moment: Gentrification Saved New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler Jan 2017

The Preservation Moment: Gentrification Saved New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler

Publications and Research

In the 1960s and 1970s, New York City was in decline. Crime was rising, jobs were leaving, and the population was falling. At the same time, much of the historic city was being lost and replaced by less distinctive architecture. But the declining city offered an opening for recovery and re-imagining. New residents moved into old, declining neighborhoods. Gentrification stabilized sections of the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Between 1965 and 1989 the city designated more than fifty historic districts, and those areas prevented further decay and anchored the recovery. Unlike other older cities, New York continues to grow. The previous ...


Post Occupancy Evaluation Of Sustainable Schools And Children's Ways Of Knowing: New Directions In Teaching And Research, Andrea S. Wheeler Jan 2017

Post Occupancy Evaluation Of Sustainable Schools And Children's Ways Of Knowing: New Directions In Teaching And Research, Andrea S. Wheeler

Architecture Publications

Architecture is now more than ever dominated by scientific method. This paper examines what is really at stake when designing sustainable architecture. It is a methodological study and focused on science as understood in Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) of sustainable buildings, specifically school buildings. Questions raised in this paper include the very real problem of designing for children’s comfort and education in school architecture, but also much wider issues than simply those of the design of children’s environments.


Holmpatrick Graveyard — A Description, Frank Prendergast Jan 2017

Holmpatrick Graveyard — A Description, Frank Prendergast

Other Resources

The term ‘graveyard’ describes a burial ground attached to a church, and ‘historic graveyard’ describes any graveyard or burial ground in use prior to the early twentieth-century. In such places, communities connect with their own history and ancestry, and identify with their place of origin. They have cultural and heritage significance too and, for these reasons, their conservation and interpretation are necessary.

Holmpatrick Graveyard is situated in the centre of Skerries, a small coastal town 27 km north of Dublin City. An archipelago of three small islands fringes the local coastline. One of these is locally known as Church Island ...


Book Review Of Píchová, Hana: The Case Of The Missing Statue: A Historical And Literary Study Of The Stalin Monument In Prague, Kimberly E. Zarecor Jan 2017

Book Review Of Píchová, Hana: The Case Of The Missing Statue: A Historical And Literary Study Of The Stalin Monument In Prague, Kimberly E. Zarecor

Architecture Publications

In this intriguing and at times frustrating study, Hana Píchová makes a compelling case for the Stalin Monument in Prague as both an object and an idea in physical space and cultural consciousness. The book came about with Píchová’s unexpected acquisition of a cache of unpublished photographs of the 1955 monument as it was slowly being demolished in 1962. Taken secretly by Josef Klimeš, the last surviving sculptor to have worked on the project, he hid them for decades since photography had been banned during the year-long demolition process. He gave them to Píchová after an interview in 2012 ...


Stewarding An Educational Legacy: Historic Preservation At Historically Black Colleges And Universities, Katlyn E. Cotton Jan 2017

Stewarding An Educational Legacy: Historic Preservation At Historically Black Colleges And Universities, Katlyn E. Cotton

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The historic campuses of Historically Black Colleges and Universities inform a story that no other setting can tell. Since before the Civil War, through Reconstruction and the Civil Rights movement, and still today, these institutions have served as the backdrop for this country’s greatest social justice struggles. They have functioned as free spaces and safe havens—places of reprieve from discrimination and inequity—where young African Americans were given the confidence and support to become leaders, innovators, and history-makers. Throughout history, these incredible institutions have nurtured an environment of empowerment, cultural reinforcement, and acceptance that has had immeasurable impacts ...


Testing And Evaluation Of Soil Based Grouts For The Adhesion Of Consolidated And Un-Consolidated Painted Lime Plaster At The Mission San José De Tumacácori, Nicole M. Declet Díaz Jan 2017

Testing And Evaluation Of Soil Based Grouts For The Adhesion Of Consolidated And Un-Consolidated Painted Lime Plaster At The Mission San José De Tumacácori, Nicole M. Declet Díaz

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The interior decorative painting at Mission San Jose de Tumacácori is a rare survival of late 18th century-early 19th century artistic traditions of northern Sonora and the Kino mission churches. Despite earlier attempts to stabilize these finishes, the original painted lime plaster has continued to detach from the adobe substrate. Previous techniques to stabilize the paintings began with research by J. Rutherford Gettens in 1949-1952 and subsequent attempts in 1984 to reattach detached plaster have proven ineffective. The current research evaluates soil-based injection grouting in order to adhere the loose plaster on the nave and sanctuary walls. Earthen grouts were ...


Cultural Landscapes And Adaptation: Identifying The Role Of Civic Engagement And Cultural Heritage In Coastal Adaptation Planning, Madeleine Helmer Jan 2017

Cultural Landscapes And Adaptation: Identifying The Role Of Civic Engagement And Cultural Heritage In Coastal Adaptation Planning, Madeleine Helmer

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Recognizing climate change associated threats to coastal environments, civic leaders and policymakers are developing and implementing local adaptation and resilience strategies. Largely absent from this conversation is, however, the cultural heritage of the coast-- the places of local identity, meaning and history. To address this shortcoming, the following study assesses the role of cultural heritage in coastal adaptation planning. The integration of cultural heritage in adaptation planning leads to more holistic, place-based and effective adaptive efforts, and contributes to long-term resilience. Civic engagement is one mechanism for identifying, evaluating and promoting cultural heritage in the coastal planning process. This thesis ...
