Re-Hanok-Ization, Joel Lee May 2018

Re-Hanok-Ization, Joel Lee

Bachelor of Architecture Theses - 5th Year

South Korea is a relatively small country of roughly 38,000 miles^2 which to put it into perspective is about half of the state of Florida, this country has a GDP ranking of 12 worldwide. From an architectural prospective, this country has the resources to build new & innovative structures. And South Korean’s have been doing so by modernizing commercial buildings and they have enlisted the services of famous architects from around the world such as Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, & Richard Meier. What about their most commonly used buildings? Out of the 30% of land that is buildable in ...


Against The Grain: Why Is Timber Underutilised In The Irish Construction Industry, Given Its Environmental Properties?, Francis Noel Duffy Jan 2018

Against The Grain: Why Is Timber Underutilised In The Irish Construction Industry, Given Its Environmental Properties?, Francis Noel Duffy

Other resources

This study explores why timber is underutilised in the Irish construction industry, given its environmental properties. Defined literature discourse (framed by two timber exemplar case study buildings and themed into procurement, policy and academic sections) is analysed in pursuit of factors that meet the research question. The literature data collected is used to formulate action-based research in the form of a “Wood First” motion, subsequently passed into policy by South Dublin County Council in July 2017. The literature is also refined into questions for a two-stage, fourth-generation evaluation interview process. This process further examines the discourse of industry experts and ...

Three Experiments In Wood And Computational Design, Marcin Wójcik May 2017

Three Experiments In Wood And Computational Design, Marcin Wójcik

Articles

This article focuses on the relationships among material-oriented design, digital technologies, and environmentally responsible construction. It argues that computational design methods and digital manufacturing have the capacity to open new opportunities for design and can lead to more sustainable practices. Through an analysis of three experiments in design and construction, the research seeks solutions that use the inherent material properties and behavior of wood to replace toxic chemicals, metal connectors, and energy-intensive processes. Offering an alternative to design processes that begin with theory and representation, this paper proposes a different approach, beginning with experiments in materiality. This approach involves methods ...


An Exploration Of Structural Timber Innovation, Simon Beskitt Jan 2016

An Exploration Of Structural Timber Innovation, Simon Beskitt

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

In many undergraduate programs of study, civil and structural engineering students are exposed to introductory material regarding timber construction. The information received in the undergraduate experience typically consists of a brief summary of the basic mechanical properties of wood but does not significantly cover timber design. Much greater emphasis is placed on design practices involving steel and concrete, likely due to their prominence in contemporary building trends in civil engineering. While it is true that wood is one of the older materials in terms of its utilization in structural and architectural design, it is certainly not an antiquated choice. Wood ...


Counterculture, Ju-Jitsu And Emancipation Of Wood, Marcin Wójcik Jan 2015

Counterculture, Ju-Jitsu And Emancipation Of Wood, Marcin Wójcik

Conference papers

This paper formulates a notion of material-oriented design in wood, proposing an alternative ontology where the material is seen as an equal rights partner to the designer. Further, I contrast the constructivist and evolutionary types of management, where in the latter systems are produced with minimal waste and energy expense. I discuss the implications of the approach on an example of five experimental projects, including my own in more detail. I advance that material-oriented design challenges the established form-matter relationship, design process, our understanding of authorship and bears an environmentally friendly potential.


Performance Assessment And Evaluation Of Hydrophobic And Ultraviolet Protective Treatments For Historic Log Structures, Courtney Magill Jan 2015

Performance Assessment And Evaluation Of Hydrophobic And Ultraviolet Protective Treatments For Historic Log Structures, Courtney Magill

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis focuses on the evaluation of the durability of traditional and modern sustainable hydrophobic and ultraviolet (UV) resistant treatments for historic log structures such as those found at the Bar BC Dude Ranch in Grand Teton National Park, WY. These treatments are evaluated on a variety of criteria including performance in accelerated weathering, ecological sustainability, and impact on aesthetic and heritage character. Like many log structures in the American West, Grand Teton National Park’s historic structures are exposed to a large amount of UV radiation. In addition to problems delineated from contact with water, the physical fabric of ...


Considering The Use Of Epoxies In The Repair Of Historic Structural Timber, Ryan Cleary Jan 2014

Considering The Use Of Epoxies In The Repair Of Historic Structural Timber, Ryan Cleary

Theses (Historic Preservation)

Wood is one of the earliest and most common building materials on the planet. However wood also quickly decays under normal service conditions, and thus the repair of historic structural elements pose a difficult challenge to preservation professionals who aim to also preserve the authenticity of the element. Since the 1970s, numerous studies have looked at the use of epoxy with respect to historic timber repair. Epoxy, for the purposes of structural repair, serves as a substitution type repair for deteriorated wood. In this study focuses on the compatibility of historic structural timber members and epoxy repairs by the means ...


Evaluating The Displacement Modes And Associated Risks Of Stacked Log Structures, Christine L. Beckman Jan 2013

Evaluating The Displacement Modes And Associated Risks Of Stacked Log Structures, Christine L. Beckman

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis explores the displacement modes and causes of displacement, especially those associated with snow load, of historic stacked log structures at the Bar BC Ranch in Grand Teton National Park in preparation of a typology of displacement indicators and risk exposures that inform the development of a field survey to help building stewards monitor stacked log structures and aid in the creation of prioritized preservation plans.
