Redesigning The Megachurch: Reintroduction Of Sacred Space Into A Highly Functional Building, Javier Valencia Nov 2009

Redesigning The Megachurch: Reintroduction Of Sacred Space Into A Highly Functional Building, Javier Valencia

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

"Megachurches offer a unique way of being religious in modern society; one that fits the social and religious context of many people says Scott Tumma “Beyond Megachurch myths”. These Massive congregations of two to fifteen thousand participants occupy an undeniable space in the religious and social landscape. It is not only their massive buildings, locations, activities or television broadcasts that make these churches important. It is the role that they play in changing society (Hartford, 2006)” Architecturally the Megachurch has failed today, it has become a “big box”, a well developed building which houses thousands of members and provides them ...

Reinventing Airspace: Spectatorship, Fluidity, Intimacy At Pek T3., Alberto Pepe Jun 2009

Reinventing Airspace: Spectatorship, Fluidity, Intimacy At Pek T3., Alberto Pepe

Alberto Pepe

In this article, I explore the contemporary practice of air travel conceptualizing airports as socio-technical mobilities. Drawing both from the notion of “space” posited by Michel de Certeau and that of “non-place” by Marc Augé, I argue that the supermodern nature of air travel has generated forms of crisis that have embedded themselves in the architecture and the modus operandi of contemporary airports. Airports are necessarily located in a physical and tangible sense, yet their function is so tightly coupled with transience, mobility and spectatorship, that they bring anthropological accounts of “place” to unprecedented extremes. In this article, I analyze ...


Architecture And Nostalgia In The British Modern Novel, Heather Lynn Lusty May 2009

Architecture And Nostalgia In The British Modern Novel, Heather Lynn Lusty

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

This dissertation focuses on Modern British literary culture and the construction of literary sites of nostalgia through architecture and landscape. The project considers examples from D.H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Ford Madox Ford, and Evelyn Waugh, and examines how these authors employ presentations of architecture in their narratives to portray the irrevocably altered landscape of modernity.

The introduction presents the notion of national consciousness and literature, moving from Lukacs' conception of the historical novel to Victorian art critics John Ruskin and Walter Pater and their writings on national identity and architecture. Twentieth-century European culture responded to the trauma of the ...

The Animated Work Environment: A Vision For Working Life In A Digital Society, Henrique Houayek May 2009

The Animated Work Environment: A Vision For Working Life In A Digital Society, Henrique Houayek

All Dissertations

Dramatic transformations in the nature, place and organization of working life due to increasing sophistication and access of information technologies in the United States suggest a redesign of the work environment as a socially and technologically responsive system occupying both home and office.
This thesis examines the process of creation of an 'Animated Work Environment' [AWE]. A space in the scale of a cubicle envisioned as an environment-as-responsive-robot; an articulated, programmable interior accommodating a range of digital technologies across fluid assemblages of people working with both printed and digital materials in a variety of locations and settings, searching for a ...

Lattice Architecture, Elizabeth M. Quick Apr 2009

Lattice Architecture, Elizabeth M. Quick

Architecture Senior Theses

"

The pervasive proliferation of complex tracking systems such as GPS and simulation gaming environments such as Full Spectrum Warrior are transforming the built environment into an immersive 1:1 map where all flows and transactions are measured, monitored, and tracked. The gap between map and real experience disappears resulting in an immersive map. The spatial implications of this real time 1:1 immersive map creates an opportunity for architecture itself to monitor, track, and measure flows and transactions. This tracking and simulation agenda plays out specifically in the design of a surface that integrates military training, military artifacts, and civilian ...


Rollins Architecture: A Profile Of Current And Historical Buildings, Wenxian Zhang, Eneido Bano, Charles Stevens Mar 2009

Rollins Architecture: A Profile Of Current And Historical Buildings, Wenxian Zhang, Eneido Bano, Charles Stevens

Books about Rollins College

The Rollins College campus has long been recognized as one of the most beautiful in America. Bordered by a picturesque lake and punctuated by majestic oaks and pines, it would be difficult to think of a more idyllic spot to engage in the pursuit of higher learning. Just as Rollins’ founders sought to bring to the Florida frontier the high-quality education of the New England colleges and universities of the late 18th century, they constructed the school’s first buildings in the same New England style. It was not until Rollins’ visionary eighth president, Hamilton Holt, that the College established ...

Political Renewal And Architectural Revival During The French Regency: Oppenord's Palais-Royal, Jean-Francois Bedard Mar 2009

Political Renewal And Architectural Revival During The French Regency: Oppenord's Palais-Royal, Jean-Francois Bedard

Full list of publications from School of Architecture

Author links Oppenord's 'revivalist' attitude to the politics of his patron, Philippe II, duc d'Orleans, regent of France between 1715 and 1723. The author uses eight drawings by Oppenord, acquired by the Carnavalet in 1999, as well as others known, to show how the Palais-Royal and its apartments were transformed to be a surrogate Versailles. Includes a checklist of drawings and prints by and after Oppenord for the Palais-Royal (1713-1723).

Designing Community, Martha Bryan Jan 2009

Designing Community, Martha Bryan

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

It is at the interface of the virtual and the physical worlds where both the practice and the process of architecture are generated. This premise will be explored in the context of designing community- or in other words resolving apparently binary relations.

This thesis explores the spatial interaction of two autonomous but interrelated systems- for example, the interior and the exterior, the virtual and the physical, human systems and informational systems. The proposed “building” becomes the frame of these relationships. The built project is the landscape of connections shaped by its passengers- the networked individual and the incessant flow of ...

Designing Sensual Spaces: Integration Of Spatial Flows Beyond The Visual, Ulrike Passe Jan 2009

Designing Sensual Spaces: Integration Of Spatial Flows Beyond The Visual, Ulrike Passe

Architecture Publications

Architectural design is an intellectual process which mediates between the hand and the eye to produce visual images for communication of spatial properties. Space and its composition are usually depicted by drafting a geometrically constructed image of material limits. These types of drawings usually do not communicate anything about spatial behavior, performance or experience. They communicate the physical boundaries but not the behavioral content of space, which is air--its movement patterns, temperatures and odors. Spatial continuity is furthermore dissected through orthographic projection, which dismembers a whole into parts. But corners are as essential to spatial experience as is the behavioral ...


Indexing Trace, Zachary E. Smith Jan 2009

Indexing Trace, Zachary E. Smith

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

This thesis aims to critically examine the relationship of digital technology and the modern art gallery in order to find the possible role of art galleries in the future. The integration of technology and the modern art gallery can change the way people experience art in built space.

In order to examine this, certain questions needed to be asked. The most important of these questions is authenticity and originality in a digital art gallery. What if, in order for the notion of originality to exist, it needs the notion of the copy; a kind of parasite. What if we don ...


Regenerative Architecture: A Pathway Beyond Sustainability, Jacob A. Littman Jan 2009

Regenerative Architecture: A Pathway Beyond Sustainability, Jacob A. Littman

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

The current paradigm in the field of architecture today is one of degeneration and obsolete building technologies. Regenerative architecture is the practice of engaging the natural world as the medium for, and generator of the architecture. It responds to and utilizes the living and natural systems that exist on a site that become the “building blocks” of the architecture. Regenerative architecture has two focuses; it is an architecture that focuses on conservation and performance through a focused reduction on the environmental impacts of a building.

This paper introduces regenerative architecture as a means for architectural design. I present the Nine ...


Crossfit Design: Maximizing Building Potential Across Broad Time And Modal Domains, Benjamin W. Goodale Jan 2009

Crossfit Design: Maximizing Building Potential Across Broad Time And Modal Domains, Benjamin W. Goodale

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Crossfit is a unique method of physical exercise founded on a specific set of underlying scientific principles. The ultimate goal of Crossfit is to maximize work potential across broad time and modal domains. This project attempts to apply the concepts and principles of Crossfit to architecture to maximize living potential of built environments across broad time and modal domain by means of an architecture that is kinetic, interactive, responsive, and continually reconfigurable. The focus of the project is the design of an approximately 35,000 sf building titled The Motus Center for Kinetic Art Science. The building serves both as ...


Capturing Gathering Swarming - Re-Coding Post-Communist Space In East Germany, Tobias Bernecker Jan 2009

Capturing Gathering Swarming - Re-Coding Post-Communist Space In East Germany, Tobias Bernecker

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

My project is an acknowledgement of the fact that the physical layout of our environments is not directly describing and shaping the way we live or our societies are shaped. Non-spatial structures are playing a bigger role in societal processes than spatial ones. My project is trying to give these invisible processes spatial expression. Non-functional structures that highlight the non-functionality of postsocialist space. The monotony and monumentality of socialist spaces is contrasted with a design that expresses the multiplicity (of possibilities, paths, choices, desires) that exists nowadays. Orthogonal space is sliced up, perforated and at points overlaid without replacing it ...


Post-Anthropocentric Dwelling Conditions, Peter N. Hendery Jan 2009

Post-Anthropocentric Dwelling Conditions, Peter N. Hendery

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

The way we build our environment today is a process of protecting ourselves from the elements of nature. We build walls, roofs, and windows; we create a more predictable and controllable environment to keep out what’s felt to be dangerous, dirty, and destructive. We isolate ourselves from the things we perceive as threats. This is common practice and not illogical. Shelter is about preservation and refuge. We need to feel safe in order to prosper. What is illogical, though, is wasting all those opportunities that come along with living closer and more integrated these natural processes that are being ...
