Urban Design And Conflicting City Images Of Brazil: Rio De Janeiro And Curitiba, Vicente Del Rio Nov 1992

Urban Design And Conflicting City Images Of Brazil: Rio De Janeiro And Curitiba, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

Imageability of places, cities and countries is strongly influenced by tourist and political portraits in the media. As human cognition relies on inferential perception and contrasting categories, marketing strategies exploit partial truths and conflicting city images to direct public perceptions. This article addresses the relationship between international perception, image building and urban design in the case of Brazil and the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Curitiba. Their contrasting images as exploited by the international media expose only partial truths. In fact, these images represent complementary development contradictions that co-exist in any major city today.

Symbolism Versus Abstraction: Architectural Representation In A Post-Modern Society, Nina Ebbighausen

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis poses an investigation into the work of Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Mies van der Rohe as elements of a formal architectural tradition in Berlin; It proposes the institution of an architecture based up on a chosen set of historical models, with the aim of providing one possible foundation for architectural renewal (of unified Berlin) implying cultural continuity. To this end, the thesis poses an investigation into the representative qualities of architecture while examining the informative potential of artifact.

A Facade For San Lorenzo, Rod Barker Oct 1992

A Facade For San Lorenzo, Rod Barker

Architecture Thesis Prep

"A facade for San Lorenzo presents the opportunity to re-examine the issues of a city. It must deal with the existing structure of the city, address its history and past, as well as the present. It needs to have meaning for the citizens and visitors alike, meaning that creates images of the other parts of the city and the particular place. It needs to become a symbol not only for the complex but also for the entire city."


When The Mall Comes To A Small Town: How To Shape Development With Carrots And Sticks, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval Oct 1992

When The Mall Comes To A Small Town: How To Shape Development With Carrots And Sticks, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

Across the United States there is a continuous expansion of population away from our traditional urban center cities. As people have occupied housing in these former open spaces, industrial parks and commercial centers have soon followed.

In our experience, few small towns are ever ...
