Echoing The Sounds Of Time: Pennsylvania Station, Michael D. Wade Jr. Dec 1990

Echoing The Sounds Of Time: Pennsylvania Station, Michael D. Wade Jr.

Architecture Senior Theses

The intent of my thesis is an investigation that will exist on two primary levels. The first level is an investigation of urban design and will deal with the development of a city within the city using a multi-programatic complex, as the vehicle. The second level is an investigation of a modern transformation of an existing typology using the primary piece of the complex, the railroad station, as the vehicle and will deal with attempting to re-establish the station and the idea or memory of travel and arrival as an important event within the fabric of the city.


A Shred Of Evidence On Theories Of Wage Stickiness, Alan S. Blinder, Don Choi Nov 1990

A Shred Of Evidence On Theories Of Wage Stickiness, Alan S. Blinder, Don Choi

Architecture

A small interview survey was undertaken to see how actual wage-setters would react to the central ideas of several economic theories of wage stickiness. Wage cuts were surprisingly prevalent in recent years, despite the booming economy. The strongest finding was that managers believe that perceptions of fairness play a major motivational role in labor markets and that a "fair" wage policy is a good deal more complicated than simply not cutting wages. We also found substantial evidence for money illusion and against the adverse-selection version of the efficiency wage model.

The Huntington Mansion In New York: Economics Of Architecture And Decoration In The 1890s, Isabelle Hyman Oct 1990

The Huntington Mansion In New York: Economics Of Architecture And Decoration In The 1890s, Isabelle Hyman

The Courier

In 1889 railroad millionaire Collis P. Huntington (1821-1900) and his wife Arabella (d. 1924) purchased a large property on the southeast comer of New York's Fifth Avenue and Fifty-seventh Street, the most fashionable residential neighborhood of the period, and undertook to build there another of the great stone piles that constituted the habitats of the very rich during the city's Gilded Age. Aspects of the history of the Fifty-seventh Street Huntington mansion have been recounted, but supplementary information about its decoration and about the artists and craftsmen who embellished it can be found in the George Arents Research ...


Mutual Influence Between The United States Of America And Europe In The Field Of Modern Housing, Erhard Schütz May 1990

Mutual Influence Between The United States Of America And Europe In The Field Of Modern Housing, Erhard Schütz

Architecture Master Theses

This study represents a partial summary of the research that was conducted since 1985, beginning with a Fulbright Scholarship originally intended to investigate the American “roots” of modern housing and the work of architects of lesser prominence than the acknowledged “masters” such as Ferdinand Kramer, who had been a housing specialist of the “New Frankfurt” and who later came to the United States as a refugee. In the course of gathering material and discussing the findings, the field of investigation has widened, now addressing the development of modern housing in Europe, particularly in Germany, and in the United States of ...

Building On The Edge: A Dialogue Between The Past And The Present; The Re-Excavation Of History In Our Modern Cities, Lance G. Vigil

Architecture Senior Theses

"The intent of this architectural thesis is to demonstrate that a new building intervention on the designated urban site will maintain the southern edge of the 'modern' twentieth century gridded city of Rome overlooking the 'ancient' city of the Forum. This edge, acting as a seam, will attempt to strengthen the relationship between these two urban conditions. The second half of this thesis will be to develop an articulated facade for this edge to create a modern building which responds not only to the buildings of the modern city, but also to the buildings of the ancient, or archaeological city ...

The Altered Mobile Home: A Stationary Image Of Work And Value, Gregory Kendall Jenkins Feb 1990

The Altered Mobile Home: A Stationary Image Of Work And Value, Gregory Kendall Jenkins

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

As the medium cost of conventional housing rises, many people unable to incur such an expense look for alternative forms of adequate housing. In rural areas surrounding Bowling Green, Kentucky, several families have utilized the mobile home as a base to expand, embellish, and personalize, creating a larger more conventional-looking home. Many of these altered homes possess gabled roofs, rock exterior walls, and expansive interior space. Of primary concern is: why have these families undertaken a project of this nature?

As material culture scholars and folklorists examine our built environment, they find relationship between construction and the builders. What can ...


The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1990

The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

When Europeans visit the Great Plains region of the United States, they are impressed by the newness of the place. Coming from communities that often are filled with physical evidence of great age, they are reminded that here virtually none of the visible marks of Euroamerican culture are more than a mere century old. Before 1854, the year in which Nebraska was legislated into existence, permanent residence in this place was technically illegal. Except for the never-numerous Indians, a few fur trappers and traders, and some soldiers and their camp followers clustered around Fort Kearny, Nebraska had no population. It ...

University Of Rochester School For The Visual Arts, Gene Browning Jan 1990

University Of Rochester School For The Visual Arts, Gene Browning

Architecture Thesis Prep

"FORM - It is proposed that an art school can be designed like a small community, with facilities for the work, life, and leisure of the art student being brought together in a single location. The investigation, then, would be into what form this artists' community might take, looking to other community types as precedent.

PROGRAM - It is also proposed that an art school can be designed to accommodate both traditional art disciplines like drawing, painting, and sculpture, and newer art disciplines like computer graphics, photography, and film, in a harmonious mix of tradition and technology."
