Ideological Contextualism, Richard Curtiss Dec 1994

Ideological Contextualism, Richard Curtiss

Architecture Thesis Prep

New Haven, CT

Yale University

Faculty and Cultural Center

""This thesis is an argument of an appropriate attitude toward contextualism in regard to modern monument and the built environment. Architecture should not be the appropriation of superficial architectural styles, but rather the development of a dialogue with the concepts, typologies and physical characteristics of the existing condition."


The Monument And The Square: Evolving An Identity For Harvard Square, Kathleen Kulpa Dec 1994

The Monument And The Square: Evolving An Identity For Harvard Square, Kathleen Kulpa

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis will demonstrate the making of a civic building as a resolution between urban conditions and as a focal point in a urban square. It proposes to create an identity for the place by using abstraction of the meeting house as a recognizable type which can allow for the reproposition of the community within."

Multi-Media And Rare Books Addition - New Haven, Ct, Henry Hong

Architecture Senior Theses

"This proposal is a study and experiment into what the role of architecture (library) is, in the information age. The question of what it is about a certain place or building that people retreat to and gather, and experience something more than an active computer screen. How, architecturally, it can transform or 'bridge' itself from historical and traditional building types that it critically addresses these issues."

"Now, while still dealing wit the repercussions of previous shifts in technology, the information age engulfs society. The premise of this thesis is that the process of creating architecture, as a method of communication and as a societal endeavor, must involve the confrontation of, engagement with, and speculation about new technologies."

An exploration of gendered spaces through an investigation of male-oriented environmets in relation to feminine spatial-socio language of difference that could inform architectural spaces which allow for multiplicity of experience which promotes knowledge and power.

The vehicle for exploring these issues will be a community center which provides social services and communal living. The project will be developed through patterns of program and the multiplicity of spatial experiences."

Meditations On The Metaphysics Of The (Extra)Ordinary Brick, Gregory S. Palermo May 1994

Meditations On The Metaphysics Of The (Extra)Ordinary Brick, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This paper considers brick -- (extra)ordinary brick -- and its metaphysics. How can a brick, a material object, have a metaphysics? The singular 'brick' is arguably the most ubiquitous of construction materials, modest in its earth and fire roots, fitted to the hand, a utilitarian artifact habitually assembled into a myriad of constructions. Yet embedded, presupposed, potentially, within each brick are: a technological society with labor organization; conceptions of fabricating structure, skin, and illusion; temporality; and the creation of place, transparency, and motion. Louis I. Kahn, when discussing architectural materials, specifically brick and arches, speaks in Platonic terms of material construction ...


The Urban Neighborhood Collective, Angel David Nieves May 1994

The Urban Neighborhood Collective, Angel David Nieves

Architecture Senior Theses

The study of development in traditional urban Africa is relevant to the contemporary American architect as it offers the possibility to him or her of a neighborhood form that responds to current American social problems. The form of this new American neighborhood might parallel the African village, a strong paradigm reflecting humankind in a non-alienating relationship with the environment. Our urban areas have deteriorated over the past century, in part because planners and architects seemingly have little understanding of the needs of humankind[...] The lack of self expression that humankind faces at home, at work, and in the community weakens ...

The form of this new American neighborhood might parallel the African village, a strong paradigm reflecting humankind in a non-alienating relationship with the environment."

"In order to promote social change, architecture must take on a new mode of operation. That is to say that architecture must come from the people, an architecture deemed some years ago in an art installation, "Architecture without Architects." The architect ...

Architecture Thesis Prep

A town hall and square for Georgetown

This thesis will demonstrate that form is, indeed, informed by content in this opposition."


Intervention Into An Historic Artifact, Salvatore Canciello Apr 1994

Intervention Into An Historic Artifact, Salvatore Canciello

Architecture Thesis Prep

Museum of the Evolution of Iron and Steel - Trenton, New Jersey

"The origins of the word museum stem directly from allusions to the process of death. Similarly the ideas behind historic preservation also find their roots in the saving of a 'dying' artifact. Through the combination of museum and historic ruin this thesis will attempt to bring both the ruin and the artifacts exhibited within the museum back to life. This life will be sustained through the celebration of site, history, and technology, and its overall significance in the development of the community, and its contribution to the world at ...
