Help In Time: An Evaluation Of Philadelphia's Community-Based Homelessness Prevention Program, Yin-Ling I. Wong, Meg Koppel, Dennis P. Culhane, Stephen Metraux, David E. Eldridge, Amy Hillier, Helen R. Lee Dec 1999

Help In Time: An Evaluation Of Philadelphia's Community-Based Homelessness Prevention Program, Yin-Ling I. Wong, Meg Koppel, Dennis P. Culhane, Stephen Metraux, David E. Eldridge, Amy Hillier, Helen R. Lee

Departmental Papers (SPP)

This report provides an evaluation of Philadelphia's neighborhood-based homelessness prevention initiative. Results indicate that nearly all households served do not become homeless. But it is unclear if households would have become homeless had they not been served. Recommendations are made for targeting prevention interventions to families requesting shelter.


Roosevelt Island: Completing An Urban Community, Karin M. Kilgore Dec 1999

Roosevelt Island: Completing An Urban Community, Karin M. Kilgore

Architecture Senior Theses

The thesis became an architectural exploration of what makes neighborhood and community at two scales: at the scale of the city (macrocosm), represented by the urban plan; and at the scale of the individual (microcosm), represented by the concept of the house and housing. At these two contrasting scales, the main focus of the study was to explore how an urban design can shape community and to explore the role that housing plays in the making of urban fabric/neighborhood. These two main issues of urban planning and housing prototypes, and the set of questions they generated, became the framework ...

The Architectural Drawing, Luke Taylor-Brown Oct 1999

The Architectural Drawing, Luke Taylor-Brown

Architecture Thesis Prep

"It is the intent of this investigation to explore the translation which occurs between architectural drawing and built architecture. This translation occurs over a gap which exists between the realm of conception and the realm of construction. All forms of architectural representation (drawings, computer or physical models) bridge theis gap in some way and, by doing so, translate architectural meaning."


On Details, W. Elijah Hoisington Oct 1999

On Details, W. Elijah Hoisington

"This thesis makes the premise that detailing connections is the carrier of the designer's architectural intentions, and that through its expression is the method through which a construct grounds itself in a historical context and within a site."


Advertising / Gender Studies, Delia Nevola Oct 1999

Advertising / Gender Studies, Delia Nevola

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The architectural blurring of genered space. IMages are presented to society as the representation of men/women, and what it means to be one versus the other. This imagery takes form in the products that are produced and dvertised. Architecture will therefore take on the role of (re)presentation, meaning the presentation of products and the representation of genes, through the investigation of binary opposites. These binary opposites, those that are assumed by society, become the architectural elements to demonstrate the presumed differences between genders. The intervention which establishes a blue between these binaries advocates a degenderization of architecture."


The Virtual Real, Kurt Schnarr Oct 1999

The Virtual Real, Kurt Schnarr

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Digital technologies have led to the transformation of different types of information into binary form. This transformation changes the way one perceives materiality, space, and its relationship to information. On one level. cyberspace creates a condition in which communication, travel, and education occur at a fast and efficient rate. On another level, cyberspace allows one to exist within a different condition, another world created by simulation and virtual reality. However, one cannot engage these virtual worlds without the existence of physical space. Aside from being an essential element for human existence, physical space evokes human contact, which must occur to ...

Imageability Of Place, Sara Sachs Oct 1999

Imageability Of Place, Sara Sachs

Architecture Senior Theses

"This thesis is an investigation into the role of architecture in the imageability of place. Architecture as built form acts as the structure by which an observer measures his or her position relative to the environment. A highly imageable structure, therefore, has the ability to significantly aid the observer in navigation through the built environment. This investigation focuses on the elements that allow a structure to become imageable and, ultimately, how architecture can use these elements to achieve a higher imageability of place."

The Beginning Student Of Design: Architectural Frames Of Reference, Gregory S. Palermo Sep 1999

The Beginning Student Of Design: Architectural Frames Of Reference, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

There they are, every Tuesday and Thursday -- two hundred minds seeking perspective on the means by which to access architecture: to think about it, look at it and analyze it, engage in discussions about it, and experience it. Student interests and capabilities are varied because in addition to being required for pre-architecture students, this is a university general studies course -- a threshold into the adventure of architecture! This paper addresses the content and methods of introducing architectural frames of reference to the beginning student of design in the challenging large lecture learning environment. Canon and skepticism. Five frames of reference ...

Optimum Lifetime Planning Of Bridge Inspection And Repair Programs, Dan M. Frangopol, Allen C. Estes Aug 1999

Optimum Lifetime Planning Of Bridge Inspection And Repair Programs, Dan M. Frangopol, Allen C. Estes

Architectural Engineering

This study proposes a general methodology for determining the optimal lifetime planning of bridge inspection and repair programs based on minimizing the expected cost while maintaining an acceptable level of reliability. For individual bridges, this methodology determines the optimum inspection technique. and the numbers and timing of inspections and repairs. The methodology is demonstrated initially on a simple structure. Then. the method is applied to the optimial planning of inspection and repair programs for an existing bridge. The proposed approach to the problem of lifetime bridge maintenance is shown to be a viable method for optimizing inspection and repair investments ...


Against Arbitrariness: Architectural Signification In The Age Of Globalization, Rumiko Handa Jul 1999

Against Arbitrariness: Architectural Signification In The Age Of Globalization, Rumiko Handa

Architecture Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

The theory of arbitrary signification, predominant during the last half century, considers architecture’s intrinsic properties as having little to do with its meaning. Consequently, architecture’s significance is not based on itself but assigned externally. In the age of globalization, such an assignment is often ineffective. This paper will: (1) examine the post-WWII debates between the theories of arbitrary and natural signification; (2) relate these theories to more philosophical, historicist vs. normative positions; (3) discuss the implications concerning conservation of culture, legitimacy of interpretation, and fake authenticity in construction; (4) and examine some architectural works that have brought forth ...


Repair Optimization Of Highway Bridges Using System Reliability Approach, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol Jul 1999

Repair Optimization Of Highway Bridges Using System Reliability Approach, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol

Architectural Engineering

As reliability based methods gain increased acceptance, there is greater opportunity to use scarce resources more efficiently while maintaining a prescribed level of reliability of a structure throughout its service life. The goal is to provide management decisions that will balance lifetime system reliability and expected life-cycle cost in an optimal manner. This study proposes a system reliability approach for optimizing the lifetime repair strategy for highway bridges. The approach is demonstrated using an existing Colorado State highway bridge. The bridge is modeled as a series-parallel combination of failure modes, and the reliability of the overall bridge system is computed ...

Architecture Leading To A Meaningful Place, Maria M. Agostini May 1999

Architecture Leading To A Meaningful Place, Maria M. Agostini

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Properties such as light, scale, and proportion form spaces that effect out perception of a place, but light is most important. The creation of a space and the sequence to reach an area, according to these properties, will affect positively the contemplative state of mind of an individual or a community. The application of said properties, but most importantly light, through the construction of view, forms, materials, textures, and the use of colors will create a narrative that will encounter and achieve individually or collectively a contemplative state of mind.'

Farmhouses That Became Boarding Houses In The Catskill Mountains Of New York State, Virginia Scheer May 1999

Farmhouses That Became Boarding Houses In The Catskill Mountains Of New York State, Virginia Scheer

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

In this thesis the author uses oral histories to study vernacular architecture, analyzing the changes in the way people in the Catskills have used buildings, specifically farm dwellings, to make a living, first as farmers and then as proprietors of boarding houses. The Catskills region in upstate New York is well known for its dairy farms and also for its resorts, but little has been researched to trace continuities and discrepancies between the rural residents and urban visitors. Boarding on farms in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries showed continuity between the two groups: recent immigrants who lived in ...

A Quantitative Method For Estimating Probable Public Costs Of Hurricanes, Michael R. Boswell, Robert E. Deyle, Richard A. Smith, E. Jay Baker Apr 1999

A Quantitative Method For Estimating Probable Public Costs Of Hurricanes, Michael R. Boswell, Robert E. Deyle, Richard A. Smith, E. Jay Baker

City and Regional Planning

A method is presented for estimating probable public costs resulting from damage caused by hurricanes, measured as local government expenditures approved for reimbursement under the Stafford Act Section 406 Public Assistance Program. The method employs a multivariate model developed through multiple regression analysis of an array of independent variables that measure meteorological, socioeconomic, and physical conditions related to the landfall of hurricanes within a local government jurisdiction. From the regression analysis we chose a log–log (base 10) model that explains 74% of the variance in the expenditure data using population and wind speed as predictors. We illustrate application of ...
