Architecture+Design 600, Joseph Krupczynski

MIRA/LOOK: New Visions for Architecture in Holyoke (2008)

This studio promotes creative research and conceptually rigorous design methodologies that aim to illuminate, situate, and contest the complex circumstances within which a truly “sustainable” architecture can emerge — an architecture capable of escaping a narrow technological focus, while addressing the broader social and theoretical implications of sustainability. The interplay between site, culture and program is a key focus of the studio. Through critical assessments of a broad range of specific site conditions students develop investigative strategies for responsive architectural interventions that bridge the gap between theory and practice. This semester we will be working on a series of projects for ...

The Interactive Medical Emergency Department (Imed): Architectural Integration Of Digital Systems Into The Emergency Care Environment, David Ruthven May 2007

The Interactive Medical Emergency Department (Imed): Architectural Integration Of Digital Systems Into The Emergency Care Environment, David Ruthven

All Theses

In healthcare, the architectural response to the development of information technologies has largely been relegated to a reactive role, essentially waiting for systems to develop and simply accommodating them with appropriately sized spaces. Designing IT systems independently from, rather than integrally with, their environment impedes them from reaching their full potential as vital components in the delivery of care by creating a lack of flexibility, decelerating performance, and degrading the healing environment. The flexibility of the environment is compromised by fixed position, single user data systems which prevent it from actively adapting to changing conditions, especially during volumetric surges associated ...

Greening The White House: Executive Mansion As Symbol Of Sustainability, Ted Shelton Apr 2007

Greening The White House: Executive Mansion As Symbol Of Sustainability, Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton, FAIA

Over the last thirty years, presidents from Jimmy Carter to George W. Bush have introduced an array of environmentally progressive technologies and strategies to the White House (and have, at least once, eliminated them). These modifications were made for reasons both ethical and political—motivations that shifted over time and responded to changes in American societal attitudes toward green building. These changing postures reveal how the White House is used by both to reflect public policy and to provide an example of steps that could be taken to increase the sustainability of the average home or office.

Back To The Stone Age: How Clemson’S Architecture Library Built A Builders’ Sample Collection, Gypsey Teague, Kathryn Wesley Apr 2007

Back To The Stone Age: How Clemson’S Architecture Library Built A Builders’ Sample Collection, Gypsey Teague, Kathryn Wesley

The Southeastern Librarian

Libraries are no longer bound by print and paper. In this digital age, where Library 2.0 is a buzzword among the academic librarians, online resources are increasingly becoming the norm. How, then, do librarians serve students of construction, landscape architecture, and architecture, and provide them with hands-on examples of materials they will encounter once they graduate, when most databases represent these products only in the form of online images? This was one of the problems faced by the Gunnin Architecture Library at Clemson University when a new Master’s program in Landscape Architecture was initiated two years ago.

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton Feb 2007

Centum Homines: The Prototype Of The Alexander Mosaic And The Military Museum In The Hellenistic World, Peter Nulton

Peter E. Nulton Ph.D.

Although it is generally accepted that the Alexander Mosaic copies a painting of the 4th Century BCE, the attribution of this prototype has never been settled. Numerous attempts have been made to associate it with painters recorded in Pliny's Natural History, notably Philoxenos of Eretria, and Alexander's court painter, Apelles.

If the painting were the work of any artist whose name survives, as strong a case can be made for Aristeides of Thebes as for Apelles or Philoxenos. Since Pliny's comment that Aristeides painted a battle against the Persians follows his treatment of the works of Apelles ...

The Experience Of A Lifestyle, Brian Lonsway Jan 2007

The Experience Of A Lifestyle, Brian Lonsway

Full list of publications from School of Architecture

This essay traces the evolution of themed environment design from theme parks to a series of new architectural types – Urban Entertainment Destinations, Lifestyle Enhancement Centers, and Lifestyle Villages – as a chronicle of spatial mediation from urban décor to urban design technique. Culled partly through semiotic deconstruction and partly through ethnographic investigation, this history examines the environmental design techniques employed in these spaces in order to better understand the relationship of design practice to the cultural practices of work and leisure.

From spatialized branding strategies to the neo-urbanist configurations of location-based entertainment, leisure/entertainment ventures use these narratively motivated techniques to ...


Design Principles For Downtown Revitalization: Las Cruces, New Mexico, Design Planning Assistance Center Jan 2007

Design Principles For Downtown Revitalization: Las Cruces, New Mexico, Design Planning Assistance Center

Design and Planning Assistance Center - Projects

The buildings of and around downtown Las Cruces reflect the unique blend of cultures and activities found within the city. Or at least it did. Today, many of the Art-Deco theaters, the historic brick structures and pueblo-style buildings sit vacant. Drab facades and limited businesses fronting the Main Street Mall now characterize the landscape, creating a challenge for Las Cruces city officials and downtown property owners. To rejuvenate the current lackluster and uninviting state of Main Street in Las Cruces, the New Mexico Main Street Program contracted with the Design, Planning and Assistance Center (DPAC), based at the School of ...


Architecture For Community And Spectacle: The Roofed Arena In North America, 1853-1968, William B. Keller Jan 2007

Architecture For Community And Spectacle: The Roofed Arena In North America, 1853-1968, William B. Keller

Scholarship at Penn Libraries

This dissertation provides the first treatment of the origins and development of the roofed arena in the United States and Canada. Supported by archival resources of graphics and text, and informed by direct contact with arena architects, design and operations staff, this study examines the arena as a place for spectacle within the larger environments of city and campus. The arena's site, massing, and design revealed the expectations of its sponsorship. The arena's internal configuration of roofed seating bowl, floor, portals, and passages was a purposeful arrangement intended to accommodate attendees and manage their movement through architectural space ...


Green Buildings: Defining Sustainable Construction Materials In Thailand, Pimsiri Thovichit Jan 2007

Green Buildings: Defining Sustainable Construction Materials In Thailand, Pimsiri Thovichit

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Sustainability is an important concept in today's architecture and will be even more so in the future. Thus, selecting sustainable materials is one of the most important steps toward sustainable or green building. In Thailand, the study of sustainable architecture is just beginning, and is not well studied. In fact, sustainable design is usually misunderstood to be the same as energy conservation design. In this study, common Thai construction materials from two regions (Northern and Central) were examined and analyzed with regard to sustainability. The following features of sustainability were studied: embodied energy, environmental effects, harm to users, durability ...


Sex-Separation In Public Restrooms: Law, Architecture, And Gender, Terry S. Kogan Jan 2007

Sex-Separation In Public Restrooms: Law, Architecture, And Gender, Terry S. Kogan

Michigan Journal of Gender and Law

This Article challenges the common assumption that legally mandated sex-separation of public restrooms is a benign recognition of natural anatomical differences between men and women. Relying on legal history, gender history, and architectural theory, my central thesis is that, contrary to common intuitions, there was nothing benign or gender neutral about the social and historical origins of the first laws adopted at the end of the nineteenth century that mandated such separation.
