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 ...

Achieving Sustainable Designs Within Master Planned Communities, Ned Wales, Elspeth Mead Dec 2005

Achieving Sustainable Designs Within Master Planned Communities, Ned Wales, Elspeth Mead

Ned Wales

Under rapid technological advancement within the urban development industry, fuelled by booming economic conditions, a fertile environment is flourishing for the uptake of sustainable development practices. However, this gives rise to the question: Then, why is there a considerable lag in the implementation of sustainable practices aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and human waste? This paper expands on initial findings of localised research into the adoption of ecological sustainable development practices within the land development industry. Through this research and further investigation a number of issues are exposed; the lack of regulatory direction, training of industry players and a ...


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 ...


Architecture For The Lost Place, Jeremy Shipp Dec 2005

Architecture For The Lost Place, Jeremy Shipp

Masters Theses

This thesis investigates how architectural production can deal with the history in a place. It describes how the idea of genius loci can define a place’s existence and how architecture can respond to a site that is disconnected from its history by a sudden loss of that which once defined it. I consider a place which has been physically transformed and whose population has been removed. These conditions invite a program to elucidate the site’s past, and architecture to interpret a state of absence. The project responds to the site’s history without pretending to manifest the historical ...


Student Preferences For Career Mentoring In Property And Construction, Liz Everist, Valerie Francis, Lynne Armitage Nov 2005

Student Preferences For Career Mentoring In Property And Construction, Liz Everist, Valerie Francis, Lynne Armitage

Lynne Armitage

Although career mentoring is well established across many professional areas, its application in the field of property and construction is at an emergent stage. As part of ongoing quality review aimed at enhancing student engagement with their educational program, a survey was undertaken among first and second year students enrolled in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning's Bachelor of Planning and Design (Property and Construction). The study investigated student preferences regarding involvement in a career mentoring program including mentoring program options and mentoring style preferences. Several differences emerged between property and construction student cohorts and in particular between ...


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 ...


La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 2005

La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El presente artículo busca desarrollar la idea de que los centros históricos sólo pueden entenderse en el marco de ciertas relaciones particulares, una de las cuales se define en el ámbito internacional. Y si llega a esta condición por el grado de las funciones de centralidad que tiene, Se parte de la premisa que el concepto centro es relativo, en el sentido que para ser tal debe definirse en un ámbito específico de relaciones: siempre se es centro de algo que lo contiene. En el caso que nos ocupa, el ámbito de la centralidad se define según el intensidad de ...


A Perfect Union, Katherine S. Ankerson, Mark Hinchman Nov 2005

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 ...

Translating Research Into Homelessness Policy And Practice: One Perspective From The United States, Dennis P. Culhane Oct 2005

Translating Research Into Homelessness Policy And Practice: One Perspective From The United States, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

Like social scientists everywhere, homelessness researchers in the US are usually ignored. Good science that identifies what causes homelessness, sound evaluations which document that certain programs will never work, and even evidence that promising solutions deserve broad replication, are often disregarded. Such wanton indifference for science would constitute malpractice in the field of medicine, but it sometimes passes as acceptable policy in the field of social welfare. Ideology, politics and preservation of the status quo usually prevail. So, what’s a well intentioned researcher to do? Persevere and become more tactical. After all, policy failures can’t be ignored forever ...


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 ...

Boundaries And Thresholds, Kathleen C. Czerw Oct 2005

Boundaries And Thresholds, Kathleen C. Czerw

Architecture Senior Theses

"The American city is an agglomeration of definitive districts of program and groups of residents, and it is these bounded urban groupings that allow the city to maintain its diversity districts, allowing them to maintain individual identities, and specifically placed thresholds become spaces where the boundaries are broken and two districts momentarily come together. Often times these thresholds are defined by spatial voids within the urban fabric, and through the use of engaging architecture the threshold can become a place of social exchange and mutual cognizance.

The site is a lot that runs parallel to Genesee River and Exchange Street ...


Editor's Note, James L. Yarnall Oct 2005

Editor's Note, James L. Yarnall

Newport History

Between 1830 and 1860, Newport became a favored summer haunt for moderately wealthy southerners, Bostonians, New Yorkers, and Philadelphians. Staying at first in boarding houses and hotels, and later in summerhouses termed “cottages,” these summer residents transformed the city from a sleepy, post-Revolutionary ruin into one of the leading resorts in America. The post-Civil War Gilded Age brought with it the “New York invasion” of unbridled wealth and aristocratic ambition, eclipsing this earlier summer society in the popular mind and replacing many of its cottages with palatial mansions. Eliza Cope Harrison and Rosemary F. Carroll return to antebellum Newport in ...


Obstruction And Transcendence: Trespassing On The Border, Adam Sheraden Oct 2005

Obstruction And Transcendence: Trespassing On The Border, Adam Sheraden

Architecture Senior Theses

"The border is an element of both spatial obstruction and cultural transcendence. I propose that there should be a physical manifestation of this cultural transcendence as there is a border fence to register the material obstruction that the border fence produces. The border, as a political and spatial construction, allows for the formation of separate cultural distinctions and therefore is as much a defining element in the city as other social institutions. The border is the final punctuation mark on this arid landscape."


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

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

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."


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."
