Lower Manhattan And The East River: An Investigation Into The Renewal Of The Lower East Side Waterfront, Todd A. Edge Dec 2001

Lower Manhattan And The East River: An Investigation Into The Renewal Of The Lower East Side Waterfront, Todd A. Edge

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

With the mid-20th Century construction of an elevated highway along Manhattan’s East River, the declining neighborhood of the Lower East Side was removed from its waterfront. As cities begin to re-examine their edges, I feel it is appropriate to address the issues of the Lower East Side community and its former riverfront. Utilizing the recent developments in Manhattan, London, and Chicago as a basis for determining how metropolitan areas are attempting to reconnect with their shores, a set of questions were developed, analyzed, and then applied to the Lower East Side. With the analysis of these questions providing the ...

Today's Neighborhood Drugstore, B. Sparano Dec 2001

Today's Neighborhood Drugstore, B. Sparano

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis attempts to align architectural critique with the forces that inevitably shape it. For architecture to become a (critical) reality, the architect is forced to take on new roles. She can no longer be (solely) a manipulator of aesthetics, images and signs. She must also, in addition, become the manipulator of underlying forces beneath the surface (i.e. social, political, and economic)."

The Development Of A Computer Program To Co-Ordinate Early Design Stage Information, Bernard Denver Dec 2001

The Development Of A Computer Program To Co-Ordinate Early Design Stage Information, Bernard Denver

Masters

local and global environment is becoming increasingly important. Several methods and procedures have been adopted to encourage designers and engineers to become more environmentally friendly and energy conscious. The advance of computer simulation and modelling of buildings has been successful in addressing potential problems in the design process while providing additional information otherwise not available to the design team. However, it is the purpose of this thesis to use this information and benefits of simulation and modelling at an earlier stage in the design. This thesis endeavours to investigate the requirements and benefits and integrated Early Design Stage program would ...

How To Build A Residential College, Robert J. O'Hara Nov 2001

How To Build A Residential College, Robert J. O'Hara

Robert J. O’Hara

Critics of higher education in the United States have been missing their proper target for many years. It may be true on some large campuses that “tenured radicals” and trendy courses have politicized the curriculum and brought about a local collapse of Western civilization. But it is also true that radical professors have been annoying the establishment since Peter Abelard disturbed the church fathers in medieval Paris, and trendy courses have been objects of scorn since Harvard University first allowed its students to substitute French for Hebrew (in 1787).

The real crisis in higher education today is not about the ...


Mountain Lake Colony Pinewood Estate Garden Historic Preservation, Elisabeth Matthies Barón Nov 2001

Mountain Lake Colony Pinewood Estate Garden Historic Preservation, Elisabeth Matthies Barón

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Pinewood Estate is a significant resource in the history of the theory and practice of landscape architecture. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a landscape plan to restore the Pinewood Estate to its historic integrity in order to retain and reflect its past.

In order to determine the criteria used to establish how and to what period the estate should be restored to, the Secretary of the Interior's Guidelines for the Treatment of Cultural Landscapes was followed. This process involved documenting the existing conditions of the estate. Site inventory and analysis and onsite interviews were conducted. Natural ...

Bridge Lifetime System Reliability Under Multiple Limit States, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol Oct 2001

Bridge Lifetime System Reliability Under Multiple Limit States, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol

Architectural Engineering

A system reliability approach to minimizing the life-cycle cost of a deteriorating structure offers significant advantages such as a rational assessment of the assumed risk of failure, and an understanding of the importance and contribution of individual components to the overall reliability of the structure. The reliability of a structural system as a whole is the measure of its overall performance. This measure has to include both ultimate and serviceability limit states. A system model of a structure traditionally consists of a series-parallel combination of strength-based component limit states. Serviceability limit states however, can play a tremendously important role in ...


Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas: Contestations From Gambling To Water Rights, Mikesch Muecke Oct 2001

Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas: Contestations From Gambling To Water Rights, Mikesch Muecke

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Let me dwell for a moment on the fabulous aspects of the city and its environs. The word ‘fabulous’ derives from the Latin fabula which gives us the English ‘fable’, a short narrative that provides an edifying or cautionary point. Fables can be pedagogical instruments. When Denise Scott-Brown, Robert Venturi, the late Steven Izenour et al took a first—second—look in 1968, they insisted in their formal analysis of the Las Vegas strip to postpone judgment, i.e. they proposed to view the space through a dispassionate lense, assembling analytic maps while resisting the temptation to judge the Strip ...


Savoye Space: The Sensation Of The Object, Daniel J. Naegele Oct 2001

Savoye Space: The Sensation Of The Object, Daniel J. Naegele

Architecture Publications

Le Corbusier's early education encouraged him to think of architecture in idealistic and metaphoric terms: architecture not as building, but as representation. Schooled in the neomedieval beliefs of John Ruskin and Owen Jones, and in the organic similes of art nouveau, he was convinced that art and industry, like art and craft in former times, ought naturally to ally. For Le Corbusier, a building was always like something else. His La Chauxde- Fonds houses were like the nature that surrounded them, with their roofs designed as curves and folded gables to echo the shape of local ftr trees.1 ...

Campaign Of Sabotage: Big Government's War Against Public Transportation , Michael E Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

This article discusses a variety of state, federal and local policies which have reduced transit ridership, such as unfunded mandates, anti-transit zoning policies, and highway funding policies that shifted development to areas with minimal or nonexistent transit service.


Autonomy In The Institution: An Institute For Detroit Techno And Rave Culture, Peter Heasley Oct 2001

Autonomy In The Institution: An Institute For Detroit Techno And Rave Culture, Peter Heasley

Architecture Senior Theses

"The institution, in physical form, requires spatial and visual separation to replace its socio-economic history in the urban and physical landscape. An Institute for Detroit Techno will test this assertion through the establishment of techno music as an autonomous art form and the manipulation of the physical context of the project through collage and situating the project along the freeway, which is an autonomous spatial condition within the city."


Site As A Measurement Of Place, Creighton Willis Oct 2001

Site As A Measurement Of Place, Creighton Willis

Architecture Thesis Prep

"PLacement and relationship of a city within its physical environment is a dynamic process that is revealed through its architecture and constructed (designed) interventions. The lift of this dynamic process deposits cicatrices, inscriptions, footprints, and artifacts within the city and place. These events inscribed in the landscape of a city reveal this changing relationship of city-environment. The contention is that a new construction within the city can actively manifest the current city landscape while also revealing the history of the place."


Methods Of Perception, Caleb Mitchell Oct 2001

Methods Of Perception, Caleb Mitchell

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Architecture can teach an observer about itself both physically and metaphysically; this can be managed though interactive processes which demand haptic experiences.

(Methodoloy:) To investigate the capacities of mechanistic or interactive devices to reveal meaning (physical and metaphysical); and to eventually develop at full (or large) scale an artifact capable of operating through functional and meaningful interactions with a user."


Traces Of Time: Urban Palimpsest And Transformations, Tomas B. Fernandez Oct 2001

Traces Of Time: Urban Palimpsest And Transformations, Tomas B. Fernandez

Architecture Thesis Prep

"I contend that the city is a deeply scored palimpsest that through specific natural, social, and cultural changes reveals its traces of permanence and temporality; therefore, to create in the urban realm is to respond to these vestiges of time through decoding and transformation, as if one was gently manipulating the genome of the city."


The Specific Engagement: A Didactic Center In Collaboration With The Adjacent Children's Museum, Aaron Bancroft Oct 2001

The Specific Engagement: A Didactic Center In Collaboration With The Adjacent Children's Museum, Aaron Bancroft

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Architecture transcends the act of 'making space' when it can engage the visitor through the realization of the what had yet to be perceived. This didactic realization can be accomplished through a series of specific moments which relate directly to the entirety of the complete experience. The sequence can be so intense or emotional that the visitor recognizes that they are meant to interact with the architecture through the varying levels of engagement and understanding."

Architecture As A Social Art: A School Of Visual Art In Washington, D.C., Rachel A. Roellke Oct 2001

Architecture As A Social Art: A School Of Visual Art In Washington, D.C., Rachel A. Roellke

Architecture Thesis Prep

"It is the contention of this thesis that architecture is a vehicle for communication that strengthens community identity by bringing art and the public together.

The thesis research explores the social role of visual art within community, including its social effects, its relationship to the surrounding physical and social context, and the formal elements of visual language. Architecture, as a form of public art, can be explored under the same parameters."


Vorhizomeid: Nodes Of Community Services Connecting Albany, Ny, Andrew Watkins Oct 2001

Vorhizomeid: Nodes Of Community Services Connecting Albany, Ny, Andrew Watkins

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The contention is to reposition terrain vague into the urban fabric recreating a continuum of the urban system while attempting to detract neither from the scale of the infrastructural system, nor that of the human body. Terrain vague muse be approached in a different manner than that of the traditional urban city. Establishing community through terrain vague should be done by measure of the forces, flows, and rhythms of space."

Perceptions Of The Quality Of Life Among Residents Of Crete, Nebraska, James Potter, Rodrigo Cantarero, X. Winston Yan, Steven Larrick, Blanca E. Ramirez, Heather Keele Oct 2001

Perceptions Of The Quality Of Life Among Residents Of Crete, Nebraska, James Potter, Rodrigo Cantarero, X. Winston Yan, Steven Larrick, Blanca E. Ramirez, Heather Keele

Community and Regional Planning Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Crete, Nebraska, (population 6,028) is on the cutting edge of a global economy in which people are migrating to places that offer jobs and a better quality oflife. In the year 2001, when this study was conducted, Crete's local Farmland pork processing plant was expecting to increase its workforce from 1,200 to 1,650. In today's economy, these 450 new jobs are likely to attract workers from around the world. In recent years, for example, workers have come to Crete from Vietnam, Korea, Laos, Croatia, Serbia, Iraq, and from countries throughout Latin America.

Demographic changes like ...


Newark Noir: A Study Of Film And Architecture, Tom Mcinerney Oct 2001

Newark Noir: A Study Of Film And Architecture, Tom Mcinerney

Architecture Senior Theses

"Through the investigation of the filmic narrative and the semantics of the visual style inherent in film noir, I intend to establish a precedent that can be used to construct an architectural product in Newark that serves to investigate the city's past, present, and anticipate the future."
