Americanizing The American Woman: Symbols Of Nationalism In The Ladies Home Journal, 1890-1900, Kaithlyn Kayer Dec 2005

Americanizing The American Woman: Symbols Of Nationalism In The Ladies Home Journal, 1890-1900, Kaithlyn Kayer

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

When the Ladies’ Home Journal began in 1883, its creator, Mr. Cyrus H. K. Curtis, could not have possibly dreamed that the magazine would grow to be the most influential woman’s journal of all time. A material culture analysis of American nationalistic emblems published in the Ladies’ Home Journal between 1890 and 1900 will determine how Edward Bok, editor, controlled nationalism in the feminine market, displaying the openness of women to nationalism in the late 19th century. It will also reveal how Bok created and controlled an educational tool he deemed “Americanization”, establishing a technique that magazines would replicate ...

Suburban Adaptability: Urban Context, Joshua Seidner Dec 2005

Suburban Adaptability: Urban Context, Joshua Seidner

Architecture Senior Theses

The urban environment historically fosters anonymity among urbanites denying individual expression, user flexibility, and family adaptability. The result is the draw to the suburban house model which inherently concedes ones' expression of individual identity. The urban landscape has historically formed with the core and periphery. Over the last sixty years the periphery has harbored the creation of suburbia. Traditionally, the urban landscape has, and continues to suppress individualism and flexibility to create uniformity and homogeneity[...] Arguably by default, suburbia creates a basic template which the end-user can customize. On the contrary, the urban environment does not foster the ability to ...


Cultural Identity In Landscape Architecture, Renovation Of Managua's Lakeside, Julio Alvarez Nov 2005

Cultural Identity In Landscape Architecture, Renovation Of Managua's Lakeside, Julio Alvarez

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis examines a design approach in landscape architecture in which cultural and historical values are reinterpreted in a contemporary urban environment. The site of this project is located in Managua's lakeside area, which was destroyed by hurricane Mitch in 1998. The lakeside area has been an attraction to Managua's residents because of its beautiful views and fresh breezes.

The majority of Nicaragua's population is of indigenous descent; however, Managua's urban environment is predominantly of European influence. The pre-Columbian heritage of Nicaraguans is hidden in their cultural expressions, such as the names of places and religious ...

A Perfect Union, Katherine S. Ankerson, Mark Hinchman

Interior Design Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

TYPE: OFFICE.
CLIENT: UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD, OMAHA.
This rail-freight giant consolidated nine locations at a 1.3 million-square-foot headquarters. Images of locomotives and boxcars add a dose of excitement for train buffs.

HARNESSING THE RAW POWER OF THE DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE and translating it into a design concept, the Union Pacific Railroad’s new headquarters in downtown Omaha alludes to the history and present of this freight giant in ways both large and small. Principal Bill Hartman designed the 1.3 million-square-foot building to make architectural reference to rail travel. Note, for instance, how the rows of interior office windows offer ...

Architectural Lessons Of Carlo Lodoli (1690-1761): Indole Of Material And Of Self, Marc J. Neveu Oct 2005

Architectural Lessons Of Carlo Lodoli (1690-1761): Indole Of Material And Of Self, Marc J. Neveu

Architecture

Carlo Lodoli (1690-1761) exists as a footnote in most major history books of modern architecture. He is typically noted for either his influence on the Venetian Neoclassical tradition or as an early prophet to some sort of functionalism. Though I would not argue his influence, I doubt his role in the development of a structurally determined functionalism. The issue of influence is always present as very little of his writings have survived and his built work amounts to a few windowsills. He did, however, teach architecture. I propose to explore the pedagogic potential of Lodoli’s lessons of architecture.

Beyond Brasilia - Contemporary Urban Design In Brazil, Vicente Del Rio Oct 2005

Beyond Brasilia - Contemporary Urban Design In Brazil, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

This paper is a brief discussion of a recent research on how Brazilian cities have been shaped from the late 1980s to the early 2000s through several case studies in different cities. After the disruption of the modernist paradigm, the demythification of Brasilia, and the redemocratization of the country in the 1980s, architecture and urbanism in Brazil were eager for new models with which to face urban development. On one side globalization and market forces dragged society towards an “entrepreneurial” and fragmented city of shopping centers, gated communities, private enclaves, and trendy and irrelevant architectural imagery. On the other side ...


Getting To “Why?”, Gregory S. Palermo Oct 2005

Getting To “Why?”, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This is a case study of the development of a learning outcomes centered, large lecture, introductory design theory course, and a best practices presentation of active learning exercises aimed at getting to ‘Why?’ from ‘What?’. Getting to ‘Why?’ is a principal objective for me in large-lecture undergraduate education. In 1996 and 2003 I participated in developing required foundation theory courses for architecture and design averaging 220-260 students per section. Central to both are active learning exercises for analyzing the concrete ‘Who, what, where and when?’ to discern a ‘Why?’. This paper addresses the importance of ‘Why?’, and the learning outcomes ...

Abstracting The Monument: Architectural Representation For A Contemporary Institution, Emma Isabel Corbalan Oct 2005

Abstracting The Monument: Architectural Representation For A Contemporary Institution, Emma Isabel Corbalan

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis contends that a strategic, meaningful abstraction of the traditional principles of monumentality will create an architecture that is identifiable and communicative, and that can become contextual without the evocation of specific historic references."


The Void: Urban By Association, Brian Kessler Oct 2005

The Void: Urban By Association, Brian Kessler

Architecture Thesis Prep

"I contend that a regional and now increasingly global scale dictates the development of the city. At this super-urban scale the specificity of architecture is impractical and too expensive, yet the city adn architecture still persist, because of the fundamental human desire for intimate social interaction. Architecture, stripped of its unobtainable utopian ideals, still maintains its significance as the literal and symbolic framework of the urban condition; the space of intense, physical interaction, leading to the literal procreation of humanity and limitless possibilities for new unforeseen activity."

Jersey [Limited]: Logistical Architecture, Dennis A. Daisey Oct 2005

Jersey [Limited]: Logistical Architecture, Dennis A. Daisey

Architecture Thesis Prep

"I am proposing a brand that benefits from the addition of architectural thinking in the analysis of the systems utilized by the fashion industry in the development of a new business model. The brand and business model are formulated by the fusion of an architectural sensibility in the consideration of space and form in addition to the study of business practices that have brought success to their respective companies."


The Providence Public Library At Waterplace Park: Modifying The Public Library To Engage With The Civic Realm, Nicole Lecuivre Oct 2005

The Providence Public Library At Waterplace Park: Modifying The Public Library To Engage With The Civic Realm, Nicole Lecuivre

Architecture Thesis Prep

"A new library and park placed into an underdeveloped parcel of urban fabric in Providence, Rhode Island will create a new public architecture that reflects the modification of the public library type and engages the civic realm at a greater capacity. A library that functions through indoor and outdoor space will strengthen future urban development of the city center a well as serving as 'the community living room' and an icon of Providence."


Incubator Architecture: Jazz Center, Harlem, Tyler Hinckley Oct 2005

Incubator Architecture: Jazz Center, Harlem, Tyler Hinckley

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This proposal I will outline the framework for all of the local centers, and more specifically I will address the crucial juxtaposition of the base and a local center by designing the two together in Harlem...

By creating an adaptive yet integral facility the local jazz center will not only be able to flourish and grow in its own incubation period, but will also become a contributing factor to the incubation of new jazz developments in the future of the community."

"The artificiality of architecture and nutrition of the fast food industry has become caustic to society by deteriorating the ideals by which modern design and health function."


Retro Fitting In, Nartano Lim Oct 2005

Retro Fitting In, Nartano Lim

Architecture Thesis Prep

Consumer culture has become a driving force within western society through the rise of expendable goods and the lower costs of manufacturing. The "good life" has now been made available to a much greater portion of society and as a result, possessions as signifiers of status have lost much of their exclusivity, but none of its effectiveness. How does one assert individuality by the products they choose?

A primary driving force of consumer culture is that goods have a designated obsolescence that is perhaps only surpassed by the users desire for something new sooner. This rapid rate of replacement is ...


Fertile Fragments: An Improvisational Urbanism For The Evolving Urban Edge, Matthew Duggan Oct 2005

Fertile Fragments: An Improvisational Urbanism For The Evolving Urban Edge, Matthew Duggan

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Often cities are developed and designed on a parcel by parcel basis without an overall master plan. Urban actors (architecture, planners, developers, municipalities, engineers, artists, etc.) are responsible for what happens on their land alone. While this can result in a series of discrete separate enclaves it is also possible to graft new developments into/onto existing ones. This thesis contends that fragments of urban form can be guiding catalysts for subsequent urban growth and transformation. It intends to explore the possibilities opened up when urban actors leave behind partial or fragmentary works for others to elaborate upon."


Perception Potential And The Performance Of Change, Milo Bonacci Oct 2005

Perception Potential And The Performance Of Change, Milo Bonacci

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Sustainable architecture should have the ability to evolve as influenced by societal, cultural, environmental, economic, and political factors. By being dynamic and responsive in this sense, an architecture would be able to interact with its environment in similar ways to how a biological organism both influences and is influenced by its ecosystem - maintaining a state of dynamic equilibrium and ultimately being sustained."


Refocused Gaze, Gabriel Swire Oct 2005

Refocused Gaze, Gabriel Swire

Architecture Thesis Prep

"How can we study overlapping of space, and even deeper, the interactions that occur in those spaces? View becomes a powerful connection that links spaces and talks about the interaction within a singular space. Gaze, discussed by Lacan and Foucault, creates a basis of exploring possible overlapping of spaces through human interaction. The gaze is a conceptual idea that allows the dissecting of social norms of space to reveal these connections and communications between them.

The objective of a museum is to create an ideal environment for interaction of people and art. the galleries and public spaces are the major ...


Unveiling The Commodified Landscape: Fixing The Tourist Gaze, Rachel Monk Oct 2005

Unveiling The Commodified Landscape: Fixing The Tourist Gaze, Rachel Monk

Architecture Thesis Prep

"My intention is to provide a counterbalance to the shared delusion of a created environment; to relate the landscape and building as constructed commodities which represent place. The project will objectify the existing methods of commodification within the site utilizing methods of natural processes on the site, erosion, and architectural precedents."

Creating an Architecture that permits flexibility within a system of controls through the design of an urban mixed-use building in Hoboken, NJ


"The urban context historically fosters anonymity among urbanites denying individual expression, user flexibility, and family adaptability. The result is the draw to the suburban house model which inherently concedes one's expression of individual identity."


Building A Future With Our Past, Maureen T. O'Sullivan Oct 2005

Building A Future With Our Past, Maureen T. O'Sullivan

Architecture Thesis Prep

"I contend that the contrast of traditional and contemporary architectural building methods and program will visualize the process of change and allow for subsequent transformations of existing constructs. A disregard for traditional architecture will eventually leave us with no conception of our cultural past. These structures are a physical accumulation of our past that we can experience spatially and upon which we can build."


Green Reintroducing Nature To The City, Andrew Cunneen Oct 2005

Green Reintroducing Nature To The City, Andrew Cunneen

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The architecture of present day America reflects the way in which we give little consideration to the impact that built forms have on the environment. American cities are expanding beyond their former limits into the natural environment previously untouched by built form. It is important for us to foster a sense of environmental concerns in an age of increasing development and advancements. While technology continues to progress it seems that these advancements are applied to everything but architecture. We have designed ways to get more mileage out of a tank of gas, and created appliances that reduce our electric consumption ...
