Unearthing Threshold, Maggie L. Cookman Dec 2004

Unearthing Threshold, Maggie L. Cookman

Architecture Senior Theses

In addition to responding to its immediate physical context, architectural form has the capacity to reveal and celebrate history, promoting an understanding of the relationship of site and region to historic conditions no longer in their original form. Within the built environment, architecture has an inherent ability to influence the experience and perception of historical relationships. This can be achieved through prescribed interactions with the constructed form, beginning before one enters the building, and continuing through the program. The exterior begins to engage the visitor through both site and facade. The building itself, as well as its response to physical ...

Applying Information Technology To Decision-Making: The Epa Geobook Applied To Greenway Planning, Margaret Ann Ely Dec 2004

Applying Information Technology To Decision-Making: The Epa Geobook Applied To Greenway Planning, Margaret Ann Ely

Masters Theses

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the role information technology could play in the planning process, by studying the role GeoBook played in its application to greenway planning. Technology has continued to advance through the years, so it is important that the planning process incorporates these technologies so as to become more proficient at making decisions. Because our natural resources are limited, we have the responsibility to steward them to the best of our ability and to make the most educated decisions possible. By incorporating modern science into land-use decisions, decision-makers can make more informed decision. This thesis ...

The Image Of The Waterfront In Rio De Janeiro: Urbanism And Social Representation Of Reality, Nara Iwata, Vicente Del Rio Dec 2004

The Image Of The Waterfront In Rio De Janeiro: Urbanism And Social Representation Of Reality, Nara Iwata, Vicente Del Rio

City and Regional Planning

Postmodernity and economic globalization incite countries, regions, and cities to compete for investments, consumers, and resources. In aspiring for a new position in this global market, cities utilize new urban practices that lead them to rediscover and reinvent identities and traditions. In Rio de Janeiro, the mythical dimension of the South Zone is inseparably incorporated to its identity. In evaluating the history of the imagery linked to the beaches and the projects for the waterfront, one may observe a social construction of a reality that is marked by a continuous redesigning of symbols but also by a discontinuity in the ...

Espacio Público: Punto De Partida Para La Alteridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 2004

Espacio Público: Punto De Partida Para La Alteridad, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El presente artículo busca colocar en la discusión algunas ideas –todavía en estado primario- sobre el espacio público, debido a la importancia que tiene para producir ciudad, generar integración social y construir el respeto al otro (pedagogía de la alteridad). Adicionalmente, el espacio público ha adquirido un significativo peso en los debates sobre la ciudad y en la agenda de las políticas urbanas; lo cual no es casual que así ocurra, porque se ha convertido en uno de los temas de mayor confrontación social respecto de la ciudad.

Hoy la crisis urbana ha determinado un posicionamiento de los modelos de ...


Notes From A Naïf: The Design Salon And Other ‘Jury’ Innovations, Gregory S. Palermo Oct 2004

Notes From A Naïf: The Design Salon And Other ‘Jury’ Innovations, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This presentation describes and analyzes three innovations in teaching and learning strategies for architectural, environmental and physical design disciplines. A principal method for assessment in design curricula is the ‘jury’: a public student presentation of design work to visiting faculty, practicing professionals and peers – often an audience of 20+. The design studio and jury have been much examined (1). The review process fosters oral and visual communication skills, and enables direct assessment and feedback to students on their design work, but it can also be a setting for abusive attacks on student performance, or the students themselves. A single strong ...

La Ciudad Y Su Gobierno Municipal, Fernando Carrión Mena Oct 2004

La Ciudad Y Su Gobierno Municipal, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El Municipio en la América Latina española tuvo su origen en el cabildo colonial, constituido como instancia de gobierno local. Aunque seguía el modelo español traído por los conquistadores, tuvo mayor importancia que en España debido a la distancia que lo separaba del poder central. Sin embargo, no debe perderse de vista que, si bien esa apreciable autonomía se ejerció respecto de la Corona, era dependiente de ciertos grupos minoritarios locales (los criollos). De allí que no hubo una clara separación entre lo público y ]0 privado, al extremo de que en ambas esferas se compartía el ejercicio de la ...


Land Values As A Source Of Local Government Finance, Tom Dunne Oct 2004

Land Values As A Source Of Local Government Finance, Tom Dunne

Books/Book Chapters

Funding local government has been a permanent feature of debates about public policy in Ireland and Many feel that the balance of power between local and central government is weighted too much in

This paper suggests that the concept of economic rent, on which the justification for property taxes rests and its relevance to the property market in a modern, economically successful and urbanised Ireland, needs to be vented, discussed and debated.

The proposition is that if a greater understanding was created about the economic characteristics of landed property both value capture and local property taxes would achieve greater public ...

Experiencing An Education: Principle And Form, Matthew T. Ahlberg Oct 2004

Experiencing An Education: Principle And Form, Matthew T. Ahlberg

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The question being investigated deals with the issue of how architecture can become the primary teaching mechanism in an educational environment and what the built forms that evolve form this approach to teaching and its relation to the built environment will take on when considered in relation to existing artistic and architectural models later on in the design process"


Fluid Architecture : Synthesis : City, Adriana L. Zarrillo Oct 2004

Fluid Architecture : Synthesis : City, Adriana L. Zarrillo

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This proposal intends to manipulate the streams of the city and their potential overlaps and deviations in order to create an intervention that will revitalize both economically and aesthetically a localized area. By further developing the city streams that are already present, the pre-existing conditions, and subsequently introducing those streams that are not present in order to produce the desired result, a successful dynamic node of convergent streams with the potential to link back to larger scales."


The Effect Of Cinematographic Architecture On Urban Space, Jose R. Fonacier Oct 2004

The Effect Of Cinematographic Architecture On Urban Space, Jose R. Fonacier

Architecture Thesis Prep

"These ideas of cinematic architecture gate when utilized in a hierarchical network of city gates within an urban space can begin to create more complex story lines to bring order to a complex variety of experiences. It also perceptually breaks down a large urban space that is perceived as homogeneous by creating sub-defined districts through a hierarchical network of regions."


Unearthing Threshold: [Re]Creating History In Boston's South End, Maggie L. Cookman Oct 2004

Unearthing Threshold: [Re]Creating History In Boston's South End, Maggie L. Cookman

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis contends that architecture can act as a unifier and agent of interaction by conveying historical conditions within a modern context, through which the awareness of historical relationships occurs. Through this thesis, the intention will be to investigate how history can be revealed through architectural form and one's perception of the juxtaposition of past and present."


Gateway To Interaction, Adam C. Mcwilliams Oct 2004

Gateway To Interaction, Adam C. Mcwilliams

Architecture Thesis Prep

"American cities presently face a moment of truth. While traditional city centers continue to signify established culture, science, education, and finance, in almost every city crucial sections of originally thriving city centers have persistently decreased as a location of interaction.

The regional city, if it is to sustain itself and maintain any diversity of architecture, density, and most importantly interaction, will need to accommodate a broad range of speeds, scales, and means of movement in both directions to reactivate the city center."


Balancing Scales Of Environment And Activity, Justin Matthew Feit Oct 2004

Balancing Scales Of Environment And Activity, Justin Matthew Feit

Architecture Thesis Prep

"What we build is outlined by the context in which we live and work. It can be informed/described by ranges of area (man-made or natural), social intensity or isolation, and program. It is my contention that design should balance between the existing scales and degrees of these topics."


Process Informing Form, Kiera Phillips Oct 2004

Process Informing Form, Kiera Phillips

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Looking at industrial processes and their respective architecture, specifically steels mills, the process housed within the architecture begins to inform the spatial qualities of the structures. The process of steelmaking starts to exhibit itself in the built forms of the steel mill: the ducting of the blast furnace, the exhaust systems of the basic oxygen furnace, the drawn out sheds of rolling mills. Currently, both process and forms of steelmaking have been removed from the site, To fill this void, I propose a new process that creates this relationship between the act of "making" and form."
