Toward A Model Of Instruction For Architecture Design Studio, Garry Allen Perryman Oct 1989

Toward A Model Of Instruction For Architecture Design Studio, Garry Allen Perryman

Theses

This inquiry addresses some fundamental issues raised in a debate over the effectiveness of architecture studio instruction. It argues that as currently structured the studio's potential effectiveness is often unrealized, because of the paucity of standardized educational resources and instructor's lack of training in educational theories of instruction. This has resulted in instructional planning that is seldom structured on educational theory or research. It is also argued that in order to maximize it's effectiveness, beginning studio instruction must be premised upon a theory of instruction which includes specifying explicit instructional goals and objectives and that this would ...


Computerize Data Information For Architecture Design, Syau-Yi Yu Aug 1989

Computerize Data Information For Architecture Design, Syau-Yi Yu

Theses

Computer-aided architectural design is technically and commercially feasible yet experience in the architectural profession to date is paradoxical. Many who apply computers to architecture appear satisfied but the tangible benefits are seldom obvious and even where computers are used in firms it is not done to the fullest potential. Contents of this thesis are an attempt to help architecture better utilize the advantages of computer applications.To do this it is important to examine two question: what is design and what is the computer? They are similar yet distinct. Architectural design is a special kind of problem solving process; an ...


Towards A Theory Of Planning Aesthetics : Application To University Commons, Newark, Kathy M. Gonzalez Aug 1989

Towards A Theory Of Planning Aesthetics : Application To University Commons, Newark, Kathy M. Gonzalez

Theses

A theory of planning aesthetics will be developed and discussed in relation to a portion of the university area of Newark consisting of N.J.I.T., Rutgers, Essex County College, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. The site is just east of the campuses and contains the Newark Museum and the Newark Library.

The aesthetics of order will be covered at a community scale (the urban context) which will then be detailed as a study of the fractile portion of that entity (the building entity) relative to open spaces which give both entities character. Important in this ...


First Impression : The Study Of Entry In Architecture, Siriwan Polpuech Aug 1989

First Impression : The Study Of Entry In Architecture, Siriwan Polpuech

Theses

Entrance as an element of architecture has had an important role in the design process from the very beginning of the architecture. Its role varies according to culture and the belief of people. The characteristics of entrances are as diversified as are architectural style and historic periods.

Architectural styles continue to change. New forms and technologies add to the growth of styles. All these contribute to the eclectic of design ideas. The specifics of an entrance can arise from, be complementary to or in contradiction of a style. They always serve as a mediator between interior and exterior spaces. The ...
