Oakland Cemetery Comfort Station Buildings, Sara Arnold, Donna Deangelis-Shore, Gerry Depken, Jennifer Holcombe, Beverly Jones, Amber Ludwig, Angela Mehaffey, Amie Spinks, Tina Stroud, John Sylvest, Yen Tang, Scott Thompson

Heritage Preservation Projects

This Historic Structure Report attempts to define the historical context and physical condition of the women's and men's comfort stations at Oakland Cemetery. The comfort stations were constructed in 1908, fifty-eight years after the opening of Oakland, in order to provide adequate public restroom facilities for the large crowds who visited the cemetery during its early history. A group effort has been made to research and document the history of the two comfort buildings, assess their current status, and make recommendations for treatment.

Bear/People Conflicts In Gatlinburg, Tennessee: An Analysis Of The Social, Political, And Ecological Elements, Kate Mitchell Newton Dec 2000

Bear/People Conflicts In Gatlinburg, Tennessee: An Analysis Of The Social, Political, And Ecological Elements, Kate Mitchell Newton

Masters Theses

Nuisance black bears cause property damage, threaten public safety, and heighten wildlife use conflicts among people across the United States. Wildlife managers have solutions to control nuisance black bear behavior and the accompanying conflicts that occur. The solutions are to require bear-proof garbage disposal, to prohibit intentional feeding, and to educate the public about black bear behavior. However, these solutions are either slow to be adopted or are ignored by local legislative bodies.

In 1999, Gatlinburg, Tennessee, adopted a local ordinance mandating bear-proof garbage containers. This thesis will explain why the city of Gatlinburg adopted the ordinance by documenting the ...

"This thesis proposes an investigation into the fragmented city and what Henri Lefebvre terms as the specialization embedded in the creation of the contemporary urban condition... The museum for censored photography is proposed to occupy Pennsylvania Avenue, a threshold in the city of Philadelphia... The architectural joint or hinge becomes the vehicle for the spatial "insertion.""


Preliminary Assessment Of Client Interest In And Needs Of The New England Environmental Finance Center, New England Environmental Finance Center, University Of Southern Maine Dec 2000

Preliminary Assessment Of Client Interest In And Needs Of The New England Environmental Finance Center, New England Environmental Finance Center, University Of Southern Maine

Planning

The New England Environmental Finance Center (NE/EFC) has been conceived as a knowledge-based clearinghouse, training, and change-agent program aimed at helping EPA's constituencies find financially successful approaches to environmental improvements. The NE/EFC will develop approaches to needs of particular priority in New England and potentially useful throughout the nation; share such approaches through the EFC national network; and help make tools from that network accessible throughout New England. In 1999 we began exploring with potential users how this ninth of the nation's EFCs might best address the region's needs. The assessment continued through the Muskie ...

Visual Understanding: The Ethics Of Architectural Representation, Gregory S. Palermo Oct 2000

Visual Understanding: The Ethics Of Architectural Representation, Gregory S. Palermo

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

Architectural representation’s multiple purposes include serving as working method for the architect and as communication to others. It is in communicating proposals to others that ethics issues arise. At stake are: satisfying values, meeting expectations, ‘reading’ architecture in one’s imagination, and enabling decision making. The first ethical requisite is teleological virtue: mastering the practices of representation. The second is that of deontic obligation to accurately portray design schemes to non-architects to enable the highest degree of understanding. Virtue concepts from Vitruvius to CAD, and case examples from Piranesi to Lebbeus Woods and the New Urbanists are explored.


Phenomenological Perception: A Memorial For Fishermen Lost At Sea, Joel Kline Oct 2000

Phenomenological Perception: A Memorial For Fishermen Lost At Sea, Joel Kline

"This thesis contends that through the exploration of tactile issues of arhitectural perception, architecture can be tested for its broader role as an effective mediator between us and the world, the individual in society, and life and death."


Margin Architecture: A Critique And Recuperation Of Social Relations Within Architecture, Michael Mcatee Oct 2000

Margin Architecture: A Critique And Recuperation Of Social Relations Within Architecture, Michael Mcatee

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The discipline of architecture all too often merely grasps at social reality, and rarely endeavors to rationally analyze the conditions of the society in which architectural production takes place. I pose, however, that establishing a working concept of cultural production is absolutely necessary before any architectural work can take place. The structure of this proposal therefore extends as a developed, rational argument, defining the marginalizing nature of social relations in the present culture, defining how current architectural forms operate to reinforce these relations, investigating a recuperative program and precedents and finally situating this work within an appropriate site. All of ...


Proposal For Reunification Center, Joseph Lee Oct 2000

Proposal For Reunification Center, Joseph Lee

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Providing a single space that is shared by two communities is a crucual part of a reunification process. I believe such a shared space will solve the problem between two communities by providing a threshold between two sides. Designing a reunification center for future Korea wil test this thesis by solving both intangible and tangible problems raised by the division of two communities."


Bastard Brand Civility, Mclain Clutter Oct 2000

Bastard Brand Civility, Mclain Clutter

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This investigation springs from a simultaneous interest in two parallel trends int he contemporary city:

1. The loss of the primacy of architectural and urban form in lieu of economic, market driven understandings of the city...

2. The related necessity of the city to adapt to this move towards the economic, and subsequently market itself as a commodity attractive to the consumer...

My contention, instead, is that we must embrace market forces and sell the city as a spectacle.


Consuming Identity: Producing New Americans, Richard Nisa Oct 2000

Consuming Identity: Producing New Americans, Richard Nisa

Architecture Thesis Prep

A Structure for the Americanization League of Midtown Manhattan

'The Thesis will be an intervention on the property of the Seagram Building designed by Mies van der Rohe completed in 1958. IT will consist of several programmatic elements organized around the situations that an immigrant or refugee goes through in order to become an 'integrated American' - in short, what is proposed will be an Americanization League."


Breaking Boundaries: The Connection Of Public Buildings To Public Spaces, Josh Linkov Oct 2000

Breaking Boundaries: The Connection Of Public Buildings To Public Spaces, Josh Linkov

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Traditionally, public buildings sit as monuments in a city and can be read as objects in a public space or boundaries surrounding it. There is often little interaction between the building and the site. I am proposing a new town hall located on a public plaza that will deal with connecting the building to the space it sits within. I will show how the ideas initially incorporated in New England town halls, up until the mid 1800's, can be investigated and reinterpreted to form a coherent unified system of built form and designed landscape."


Speculative Housing, Jaret Steinagle Oct 2000

Speculative Housing, Jaret Steinagle

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The purpose of this thesis is to understand architecture as a semiotic "sign system" with the ability to communicate information through form; constructing a rich, meaningful built environment. A study of the history of this language and the meaning of form within suburban contexts indicates the disassociation between the complexities of the lie of the contemporary middle class and the architecture in which they live."


Analyzing The Sustainability Of Puppets To Create A Puppet Theater, Emily Buttrick Oct 2000

Analyzing The Sustainability Of Puppets To Create A Puppet Theater, Emily Buttrick

Architecture Thesis Prep

'The revitalization of an urban community can begin with a public building and can incorporate sustainable design. Sustainable architecture is not only ecologically sound but programmatically flexible and utilizes the resources of the neighborhood. Sustainable design can therefore incorporate ideas of future use of a building. It can also be used in a way to inspire the people using the building so that their own lives become subsistent.

"This thesis contends that through the analysis of the sustainability of puppets, the construction of a community theater building can be fashioned. A puppet's flexibility, layers, scale, structure, and joints make ...

Managing Sprawl In The Land Of Unintended Consequences, Robert S. Bucci Sep 2000

Managing Sprawl In The Land Of Unintended Consequences, Robert S. Bucci

New England Journal of Public Policy

Americans witnessing the bulldozing of their country’s pastures, farmlands, and sensitive habitats to erect suburban housing tracts and commercial centers have come to realize that the remaining open land may be too precious to waste. Residential and commercial development is no longer quickly embraced to stimulate economic progress and prosperity. Municipalities are learning that development often extracts a price — sometimes the loss of community character and local charm, sometimes tax revenues that fall short of increased expenditures, and sometimes just plain ugliness. Responding to the new reality, many community officials have initiated unilateral ordinances regulating the development of open ...

Environmental Finance Charette, Hyannis Park On Lewis Bay: A Case Study, New England Environmental Finance Center, Environmental Finance Center Of University Of Maryland

Water

The town of Yarmouth currently has a $30 million septic sludge treatment plant and transport lines in place. The vast majority of the dwellings and businesses in the Hyannis Park area are on septic systems that are viable and Title 5 compliant, regardless of age. Conventional, "non-failing" septic systems, however, were never intended to remove form their effluent nutrients such as nitrogen. These have become recognized as an environmental threat only as our understanding of the impacts of excess nutrients on ecosystems has increased in recent decades.


The Design And Performance Of An Evaporative Cooling Test Rig For A Maritime Climate, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn Sep 2000

The Design And Performance Of An Evaporative Cooling Test Rig For A Maritime Climate, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn

Conference Papers

Recent developments have prompted a review of the use of cooling tower based evaporative cooling technology as an effective means of cooling modern buildings. Prominent among these developments is the success of high temperature cooling systems such as radiant ceiling panels and chilled beams. At present, however, there is little published literature which gives a quantitative, in depth analysis of the performance or energy efficiency of cooling towers, used in maritime climates, in conjunction with heat exchangers and run at low approach and low wet bulb temperatures throughout the free cooling season. This lack of knowledge has meant that many ...

Criterios Para La Descentralización, Fernando Carrión Mena Aug 2000

Criterios Para La Descentralización, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El proceso centralizador de la sociedad, la economía, la cultura, la política y el territorio -en un contexto de globalización y revolución científico tecnológico-ha conducido al desarrollo de su antítesis: la descentralización. Este proceso, que se inició en Europa con anticipación a lo ocurrido en América Latina, requiere ser conocido y analizado. Es necesario hacer un balance de las principales experiencias, así como de la historia de los procesos particulares. Mucho más, si se constata que no hoy un modelo de descentralización; aunque es innegable la existencia de ciertas constantes generales. Esto significa que cada país en cada momento debe ...


The Legacy Of Modern Urbanism In Brazil: Paradigm Turned Reality Or Unfinished Project?, Vicente Del Rio, Haroldo Gallo Aug 2000

The Legacy Of Modern Urbanism In Brazil: Paradigm Turned Reality Or Unfinished Project?, Vicente Del Rio, Haroldo Gallo

City and Regional Planning

The Modern Movement ideals of transformation and progress coincided with the national spirit and zeitgeist of the 1930s Estado Novo in Brazil. Despite a persistent conflict between distinct urbanist views a progressive approach of urbanism became eventually predominant. Its strong impact on urbanist manifestations reached its climax with the construction of Brasilia. This paper explores some negative aspects of the modern legacy in Brazilian urbanism, but by acknowledging that Modern Movement ideals helped to establish a great sense of social consciousness and promoted a common aim, also the creation of a particular identity is recognized. By strengthening local elements of ...


The Influence Of Confluence And Resolution On Architectural And Structural Frameworks, Paul A. Bielicki Aug 2000

The Influence Of Confluence And Resolution On Architectural And Structural Frameworks, Paul A. Bielicki

Masters Theses

This investigation focuses on the ideas of confluence and resolution as generators of architectural volume. This focus is applied as the driving design idea extending from the selection of the city, to the selection of the site, to the organization of the building and, finally, to the architectural development of the details, all of which help resolve the design and construction of the building.

The layering of confluent conditions, from the site to the detail, is intended to create a building in which an occupant may begin to understand the relationships influencing the design and development of the building, and ...

An Optimized Lifetime Reliability-Based Inspection Program For Deteriorating Structures, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol Jul 2000

An Optimized Lifetime Reliability-Based Inspection Program For Deteriorating Structures, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol

Architectural Engineering

No matter how well they are designed, all civil engineering structures will deteriorate over time and a program of lifetime inspection, maintenance and repair represents a substantial portion of the total lifetime cost of most structures. An optimized inspection program is the key to making appropriate repairs at the right time to minimize cost and maintain an appropriate level of safety in a structure. When a visual inspection will not provide the necessary level of information, some other non-destructive evaluation method is often needed. This study summarizes a methodology for optimizing the timing, the frequency, and the type of inspection ...
