Point|Counterpoint: A Conversation With Haviland, Tricia Stuth, Ted Shelton Apr 2006

Point|Counterpoint: A Conversation With Haviland, Tricia Stuth, Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton, FAIA

Point–Counterpoint is an installation at Eastern State Penitentiary National Historic Landmark in Philadelphia. Operational from 1830 to 1971, the prison is now a museum. One of the largest and most technologically advanced buildings of its day, Eastern State “linked solitude with moral and vocational instruction, exemplified the Pennsylvania System of penology, and became a model for over 300 prisons worldwide.”1 This installation initiates a conversation with the prison’s architect, John Haviland (1792–1852), about Eastern State’s influential role in establishing an architectural type—the radial prison.

From Object To Installation In Bruno Taut’S Exhibit Pavilions, Kai K. Gutschow Apr 2006

From Object To Installation In Bruno Taut’S Exhibit Pavilions, Kai K. Gutschow

Kai K. Gutschow

This paper, part of a JAE special issue on "Installations by Architects," investigates the artistic and philosophical origins of Bruno Taut’s Glashaus (1914) exhibit pavilion in order to reinterpret the famous building as an experimental, free-standing “installation” that rose above being merely a pragmatic exhibition space. In close collaboration with the critic Adolf Behne and the Expressionist poet Paul Scheerbart, Taut designed a three dimensional manifesto for a utopian “glass architecture” that sought to express “a higher passion to build.” Both the collaborative construction process he envisioned and the radical new experiences inside were intended as vehicles to greater ...

Gargoyles On Glatfelter Hall, Katherine D. Anthony Apr 2006

Gargoyles On Glatfelter Hall, Katherine D. Anthony

Hidden in Plain Sight Projects

When one walks around the campus of Gettysburg College, Glatfelter Hall towers above them, as one of the College’s most commanding edifices. One takes notice of the arched doorways, sunken windows, and the giant bell tower whose occupant chimes on the hour. What one may not notice are the eyes watching from the brownstone; faces and creatures at home in the stone, surveying your every move. Grotesques and gargoyles sit in the moldings, on the window sills and at the junction where roof and wall meet, hidden from the eye that does not have the compulsion to look. These ...

William W. Cook: Articles From Law Quad Notes About William W. Cook, Margaret A. Leary

Books

This collection of articles published from 2002-2004 is the embryo of a biography I hope to complete so that full information about the life and times of William W. Cook (1858- 1930) is accessible. Cook was important to the University of Michigan and its Law School because he gave virtually all of his considerable fortune to the Law School, and was the first individual to give so much.

Conflict And The Shaping Of The National Museum Of The American Indian (Nmai), Lynn Paxson, Joseph B. Juhasz, Rubén Martinez

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

On September 21, 2004 after more than a decade of planning, preparation and design, marked along the way with a number of very public conflicts, the Smithsonian NMAI (National Museum of the American Indian) opened its doors. While the opening was perhaps not as marked by conflict as it might have been - it did generate a certain amount of controversy, some of which is ongoing. The story of the events and process(s) that led to this point an interesting and instructive.


Prefab And Parasitic Architecture : Architectural Solution Of The Future City Crisis (With Case-Study Design Projects), Bosuk Hur Jan 2006

Prefab And Parasitic Architecture : Architectural Solution Of The Future City Crisis (With Case-Study Design Projects), Bosuk Hur

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

My thesis is basically about the concept of architecture, where humans, regarded as a living machine, will lead their lives in the future. This thesis aims to develop solutions to the problems (CO2, population, social level, sprawl phenomenon, and so on). I pictured the image of Laputa Island in Gulliver's travels in order to solve problems of the city. This is the definition of the Laputa. (Laputa: Floating island in the sky, mentioned in Gulliver's travels) Lebbeus Woods showed imaginary architecture in the future, which mentioned "floating housing" in his works such as "Aerial Paris," "Havana Project," and ...


The Earth All Around Us: Selected Building Stone In Lincoln, Nebraska. A Walking Tour, William J. Wayne Jan 2006

The Earth All Around Us: Selected Building Stone In Lincoln, Nebraska. A Walking Tour, William J. Wayne

Papers in the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences

Stone has been a primary building material for millennia. Cities, therefore, are treasure troves of earth materials. A wide variety of stones from many places are used for walls, as foundations to support entire buildings, as trim, and more recently as cladding (facing, an overlay). The Earth science teacher can find, in the limited space of an urban environment, a superb collection of stones with which to introduce students to these materials. The surfaces of stones on the outsides of buildings illustrate the durability and the vulnerability of each kind of stone to the local climate. And the history of ...
