Master Of Architecture Ii - Thesis (Baltimore's Inner Harbor), Federico G. Beulcke Oct 1991

Master Of Architecture Ii - Thesis (Baltimore's Inner Harbor), Federico G. Beulcke

Architecture Master Theses

This project is interested in the chance to develop a project for a "Museum of the Bay" in Baltimore's Inner Harbor area. The building would contain a somewhat historical retrospective on what the Chesapeake Bay meant for the population living on its coast, focusing in particular on the docks area and its potential development.

The museum itself and the facilities that will naturally be tied to it will be generated by the use of some of the pre-existing structures, connected to a circulation system, and able to work as a starting point for the total recuperation of the area.

The Roman Villa: An Investigation Of Typology, Timothy De Noble Oct 1991

The Roman Villa: An Investigation Of Typology, Timothy De Noble

Architecture Senior Theses

"The Roman villa is a distinct typology emerging from urban precedents which are transformed by site, programs, and constructional methods and materials in order to represent the Roman city. The reconstruction of Pliny's Laurentine villa, as described in his letter to Clusinius Gallus, provides the context for this investigation of typology and for an exploration of Pliny's urban reproposition...

This scenario allows the incorporation and transformation of typological elements as well as spatial comparisons relative to the chronology o Roman structural technology. The language of the villa reflects the actual materials of the Romans while their assembly necessarily ...

Where Land And Water Meet, Mark N. Rhoades Oct 1991

Where Land And Water Meet, Mark N. Rhoades

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The intention of this thesis is to study the waterfront typology, and how the interplay of land and water through the insertion of architectural elements, can reform a sense of place from the shattered urban fabric. The purpose of the waterfront fabric is twofold; to present a facade to the waterfront, and activate the waterfront while maintaining a relationship back to the fabric of the city."


Architecture And The Articulation Of Passage: A Ferryboat Terminal For Old San Juan, Ruperto Arvelo Oct 1991

Architecture And The Articulation Of Passage: A Ferryboat Terminal For Old San Juan, Ruperto Arvelo

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The primary goal is to develop the area around the ferryboat terminal of San Juan waterfront, understanding such issues as:

-the importance of the bay and the role that the city of Old San Juan played in it as its physical entrance.

-definiteion of the waterfornt edge...

-the connection of Old San Juan to other areas of the metropolitan area through the new ferryboat system...

-ideas of representation, of historical continuity between the traditional and modern architecture, an understanding of the old fabric and how we can complement it, without imitating it or opposing it."


Montauk Transportation Center: The Train Station As Evidence Of The Duality That Exists Between Type And Prototype, Lisa Renee Eader Oct 1991

Montauk Transportation Center: The Train Station As Evidence Of The Duality That Exists Between Type And Prototype, Lisa Renee Eader

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The intent of this thesis is to study and re-interpret an existing building type, and to develop conceptual strategies for a prototype. It will demonstrate the advantages of the prototype and how it can be used as a building block when dealing with specific site considerations. My conclusions drawn from these analyses will depict the evolution of, and develop a relationship between prototype and type."

The Chalet As Archetype: The Bungalow, The Picturesque Tradition And Vernacular Form, Bruno Giberti Oct 1991

The Chalet As Archetype: The Bungalow, The Picturesque Tradition And Vernacular Form, Bruno Giberti

Architecture

The history of the Swiss chalet is a history of recycled form. This paper considers the nature of the chalet as a vernacular building type, its appropriation beginning in the eighteenth century within picturesque theory and high-style architecture in England and America, and its eventual return to the vernacular in the form of the early-twentieth-century bungalow.

The goal of the paper is to explore the process by which specific vernacular forms may become integrated into more generalized styles of building. Special attention is paid to identifying the archetypal chalet elements in the high-style work of architects Charles and Henry Greene ...


The Mall Comes To Town: Planning For Its Development, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray Jul 1991

The Mall Comes To Town: Planning For Its Development, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

This article analyzes the impacts of malls on the character and economic base of a community. Based on both applied planning and academic research, it is clear that malls stimulate major changes in the community fabric. It is also apparent that community leaders who have a clear perception that their cities and towns have the potential to attract malls, and prepare for them, will be able to gain far more from their development than those that simply wait and see. The theme of this article, in short, is that a community either plans for a mall or it is planned ...

Urban Square - A Link Between Two Cities, Margaret Clark

Architecture Thesis Prep

Twin City Recreation Center for Minneapolis and Saint Paul, Minnesota

"I will investigate the linking of two cities through the introduction of an urban square and its continuity with an urban street, with an urban bridge between the cities, and with an urban park system,. The program for the square will be a recreation center for residents from both cities, thus creating a common urban place to reinforce the interdependent and cooperation of the two communities."


The Little Colonel: A Phenomenon In Popular Literary Culture, Sue Lynn Mcdaniel Apr 1991

The Little Colonel: A Phenomenon In Popular Literary Culture, Sue Lynn Mcdaniel

DLSC Faculty and Staff Publications

Written by Annie Fellows Johnston (1863-1931), a set of twelve novels published between 1895 and 1912, influenced thousands of readers to emulate the main character, Lloyd Sherman, and her chums. As the rise of the “New Woman” found multi¬tudes of southern women fearful that such change would threaten the stability of the home, impressionable young readers idealized the Old South and accepted the selfless values which Johnston taught through the Little Colonel series. Drawing upon both her own experiences and those of her devoted audience, Johnston recorded life as she knew it and provides modern read¬ers with insight ...

Optimal Width And Depth For Maximum Breaking Load Of Wood Beams, Steven H. Bullard, Vikram Yadama Jan 1991

Optimal Width And Depth For Maximum Breaking Load Of Wood Beams, Steven H. Bullard, Vikram Yadama

Faculty Publications

The strength of solid wood beams is an important property to consider in construction. Such beams do not receive further primary processing after leaving the sawmill, and their quality and strength properties are therefore determined by their initial, primary breakdown at the sawmill. The most efficient means of controlling the quality of solid wood beams is thus at the sawmill level. This paper presents a method of determining the width and depth of solid beams that will maximize breaking load.

The Shaping Of Urban Place: The Didactic Museum And The Dialectic Between Art And Technology, Robert J. Corson Jan 1991

The Shaping Of Urban Place: The Didactic Museum And The Dialectic Between Art And Technology, Robert J. Corson

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The hypothesis being that the Museum as building type; as expressed through the ideals of the enlightenment, can shape urban place through the its form and content. The intent is to use this hypothesis to shape a significant urban place in Syracuse, NY. The premise being that Syracuse does not have a space that serves as a public forum. This is not intended to reflect the history of Syracuse, but deal with some of the architectural and social problems that currently exist."
