Design Guidelines For The Historic Downtown Of The City Of St. George, Utah, Bronson R. Tatton May 2007

Design Guidelines For The Historic Downtown Of The City Of St. George, Utah, Bronson R. Tatton

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

This document proposes historic preservation guidelines for the downtown area of the City of St. George, Utah. It grew from a summer internship with the city where I took inventory of the streetscape in the Historic Downtown and prepared recommendations in the form of a PowerPoint Presentation that was given to the city council. This paper summarizes the summer internship and introduces a more appropriate approach based on reflection of the intern ship. The new approach involves a thorough inventory of the historic character, in depth research of the historic elements that contribute to the historic character, development of design ...


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.

Frugality And Robustness: Negotiating Economy And Ecology In Architecture, Ted Shelton Dec 2006

Frugality And Robustness: Negotiating Economy And Ecology In Architecture, Ted Shelton

Ted Shelton, FAIA

This paper proposes an operational framework for developing an environmentally progressive mode of design practice. This framework, based on the concepts of frugality and robustness, seeks to balance a project's first cost with the anticipated energy and material flows over its lifetime. Focusing on a conceptual rather than a computational basis for understanding issues related to green design, the framework is intended to provide an approachable “first step” for practitioners interested in developing an ethic of sustainability in their work.

Frugality is here understood as the conservation of resources by limiting or eliminating their use and robustness as the ...
