This will investigate the position the design of your alloted house has in relation to its own time and place, the architect’s wider body of work, and continued influence on evolving contemporary architectural trends.
In the first part of the essay you should describe the house, then analyse it in terms of its style, layout, form of construction, and palette of materials. How did the lifestyle, technology and culture of its time and location affect its design?
In the second part of the essay you should identify, describe and discuss some other key works of the architect in question, and relate the design of the house to her or his wider oeuvre. Are there any themes, for instance, which recur in other building types attempted by the architect in terms of plan type, section, materials, detailing and so on? How does the design of this house relate to current trends in architecture, particularly in relation to energy use – specifically what design features would need enhancement, or even fundamental reconsideration, to meet the contemporary imperative for low carbon design?
Conclude your essay with an effective summary of your preceding points and attempt to identify the enduring, timeless, qualities of the work that merit ongoing consideration.
Be critical as well as descriptive – expressive opinions, if well-informed, are enthusiastically encouraged!
Illustrate your essay with photographs and your own drawings (including plans, sections and elevations from AR323 Folio module along with views, diagrams as appropriate). Include your own bibliography. Ensure you give the sources of any illustration, idea, or text which you cite, and observe the normal academic conventions of referencing. Word process the text (minimum 11 pt with 1 1⁄2 line spacing) and produce a cover with the essay title, module code and name, in addition to your name in A4 portrait format and submit as a PDF document of under 10MB.
Write a report between 2000 – 2500 word on methods of wooden building construction in China, at least 2 styles of traditional Chinese wooden architecture and the challenges of conserving China’s traditional wooden architecture in the face of rapid economic development.
Learning Goal: I’m working on a architecture question and need support to help me learn.This paper is about architecture and shrinking cities and abandoned areas. Present an opinion based on information and research. You should research the topic and use and analyze (3 case studies). A case study can be a city, town, area, or neighborhood. * Sources, I have sources, and you may need to find three (scholarly) sources to use in the paper. Intro: Definition of shrinking cities
Discuss some historical contexts/examples
Give numbers and facts to explain the idea of shrinking cities
Thesis:The thesis is an argument based on research.—————————————————————————-The body:The body has three parts (each part is about one case study). NOTE: One part does NOT mean one paragraph (Part is a series of paragraphs that discuss and analyze the case study and one of the points from the thesis).
First part: ( #1 case study – Detroit, Michigan, USA) Topic sentence in the first paragraph.
Reasons/points from the thesis.
Case study:Identify the important facts surrounding the case study.
Contextualize- What are relevant historical factors
Identify the reasons and key issues why this area is/was shrinking.
Evaluate and analyze the reasons for the case study.
– Find a source that talks about the case study and summarize the author’s main argument.- supporting evidence and points. – Recommend the best course of action (optional).———————2nd part: ( #2 case study – find a case study) – it can be another city in China for different reasons. Same points above.
3rd part: ( #3 case study … find a case study) Same points above.
Conclusion:Restatement of thesis with the conclusion. Note:1- Use the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS). All information that you directly quote or paraphrase needs a citation (footnote, placed at the bottom of every page).2- The bibliography should be on the last page.
Requirements: 10 pages / (11. font) | .doc file
You are working for a large property company as a trainee building surveyor. As part of your development and training you get to spend six months in different departments on rotation. You have recently moved into the design department to broaden your understanding of architecture and to share your knowledge and understanding of surveying. The design department have very good expertise on large scale new build commercial projects, but they lack any detailed knowledge of residential refurbishments and alterations. Your last two rotations within the company were in the maintenance department and the surveying department. Because of this your supervisor has asked you to prepare an illustrated ‘Info Guide’ on the development of domestic architecture and construction techniques. It is intended that the guide will become the main reference document for the design team when they work on refurbishment projects. Produce a detailed and comprehensive, two part illustrated guidance document on the development of architectural styles and residential construction techniques. The document should focus specifically on domestic scale construction. You should clearly show the changes in architectural style and the development of construction methods, and how this has impacted on maintenance requirements over the years. For example, the development and use of precast concrete systems for domestic construction in the 1960’s lead to a number of maintenance issues in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Part one of the guide will consider the following periods of domestic architecture: Pre-War (1900- 1939) Post-war (1945-1960) Modern Post Modern Contemporary Part two of the guide will detail: Traditional methods of construction Modern methods of construction Because the guide is going to be used by the design team your supervisor has suggested that you use a lot of images, drawings and sketches to illustrate the key features. They have suggested that 3-4 annotated images per architectural period with supporting text would be appropriate. Similarly, for the methods of construction they have indicated that photographs and drawings of typical construction details would be most appropriate. You will have produced a clear and detailed illustrated guide to the development of architectural styles and domestic construction. The guide he will have a large number of images which will be clearly annotated and detailed to aid the design team. The final document can be presented in a number of formats, ranging from a traditional paper based portfolio through to an E-Book. You should ensure the format that you choose is appropriate and allows you to clearly demonstrate the key points you are trying to make.
The Questions (Choose only one to answer):
1. Describe a problem that you solved; intellectual, ethical, or otherwise important to you.
2. Describe a moment when you challenged a belief or idea.
3. Tell us about a time when you learned from failure.
4. Tell us how you express your creative side (through problem solving, innovative thinking, artistically, etc.).
The report will address the fundamental question for the module: How are conflicting imperatives of ecological sustainability, social inclusion and economic competitiveness being balanced by practitioners aiming to shape the development of a particular city or metropolitan area, and what implications does this have for those living there?
The report is your opportunity to show your research and evaluation of one of the planned interventions examined during the semester in a greater depth and on an individual basis:
It is expected that your report will show a grounded understanding of conditions in your chosen city, and that it will use figures/maps to demonstrate your familiarity with the spatial layout and structure of the city.
Your evaluation of that particular city may draw upon experiences from other cities where appropriate.
Your report will be based around one of the two cities and the related development project addressed within the scenarios.
Your evaluation will usually draw on upon research and reading undertaken through your group projects but is expected to develop this further.
Your report should be written as if it were a piece of critical commissioned research to be read by planning/development practitioners responsible for strategic city development, rather than an essay for an academic audience:
You can assume that the audience has some familiarity with the context of your city – there is no need to define basic terms that would be common knowledge there, although you should ensure that any descriptions of the city are backed up with research-based evidence wherever possible.
You may use subheadings to help structure your report, and other stylistic devices such as bullet points or text boxes are permitted.[ Appropriate examples of presentation and writing style can be found in two annual reports, UN-HABITAT’s State of the World’s Cities Report, or the World Bank’s World Development Report, although you are not required to produce an equivalent number of supporting illustrations/graphics as are present with these.] It is expected that the report will contain at least an executive summary, background, discussion, evaluation and recommendations.
You must still use correct academic referencing. Evidence or sources of ideas presented within your report should be properly referenced using the Harvard style.
You will be assessed on the following criteria, related to the learning aims of the module as a whole:
Does your report show knowledge of spatial planning systems in the city you have chosen: their organisation, operation and effectiveness?
Does your report show awareness of the political, legal and administrative structures in which spatial planning systems are embedded?
Does your report demonstrate your ability to analyse and synthesise knowledge by developing a reasoned evaluation of planning interventions in the city of your choice?
Audience – just because this is a nominal ‘practitioner’ audience, this shouldn’t alter your critical evaluation – you don’t have to be polite about errors/oversights in city plans!
Emphasis – you need to explain key concepts that underlie your evaluative framework, but briefly: the bulk of the report should focus on how they are being applied to your city
Do draw the report together with an analytical conclusion
Do include reference to academic sources for the ideas you are drawing on (particularly with respect to the question of how you are evaluating the plans for the development of your city)
Do include sources for key statistics mentioned
You may ‘recycle’ images/graphics that have already been used within your groups’ reports
Bibliography, figure captions, etc. should not be included in the word count: the 2,500 words is for the main text only
General commentary regarding the pace of change, economics and practical application of this technology (3d house printing) are appropriate. I chose the tecla 3d homes to talk about, so base everything about the tecla homes on the essay.
