Presenting architecture on a digital flatland: a case study on Murcutt, Lewin and Lark’s The Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre.Kwee, Verdy January 2007 (has links)
This thesis primarily deals with the presentation of architectural information in order to allow a wider audience to gain a better understanding of an existing architectural work. It proposes to augment the role of visual media in explaining architectural subjects – beyond the commonly accepted levels in the current print publications or on the internet. The effectiveness of traditional publications of notable buildings in terms of their level of presentation and degree of information rigour are commonly presumed but unproven. In this era, their unchallenged role as facilitators for clear and in-depth learning results in mainly digital replications of conventional presentation methods. Little has been explored in the area of expanding digital visualisation capabilities to leverage information clarity. This thesis enquires into architectural precedent presentation possibilities specifically within the limitations of computer screens. The approach involves a worldwide online survey to investigate public perception of current media effectiveness within commonly available publications. The research also explores several digital visualisation presentation techniques. Together with the collected data about the building, this exploration and the results of the survey are considered in the production of a digital presentation prototype of The Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre by Australian architects Glenn Murcutt, Wendy Lewin and Reg Lark. While the thesis findings highlight critical areas overlooked by current publications, the illustrative prototype serves as a basis to propose opportunities that could be explored. There are three obvious outcomes derived from this research project: • The scope and depth of information about the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre extends beyond what any one secondary source currently provides. Materials relevant to many aspects of the building are researched from primary sources. • There are presently numerous methods to visualise architectural information. However, in order to use them as more robust learning instruments, the thesis highlights several factors for their design enhancement. It describes some digital visualisation possibilities for adoption in future digital architectural publications. • The thesis outlines the stages undertaken and some considerations in their implementations. The design of the digital prototype presentation of the Arthur and Yvonne Boyd Education Centre suggests not only a direction for similar future works, but also identifies the technological facilitation gaps that we still need to address. / http://proxy.library.adelaide.edu.au/login?url= http://library.adelaide.edu.au/cgi-bin/Pwebrecon.cgi?BBID=1294656 / Thesis( Ph.D.) - University of Adelaide, School of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design, 2007
Mediální obraz změn na Václavském náměstí v kontextu urbanismu a jejich architektonické kvality / Media image of changes at Wencelslas square in the conzext of urbanism and architectuaral qualityJaroš, Jiří January 2016 (has links)
Primary objective of master's thesis named Media image of changes at Wenceslas Square in the context of urbanism and architectural quality is to analyse the media coverage of important architectural and urban changes of Wenceslas Square between 1997 and 2015. The two main topics chosen for the analysis are the Revitalisation of Wenceslas Square and the development of Euro Palace. The purpose of the analysis is to answer the following question: "Do readers of generally oriented periodicals have an access to objective information about architectural and urban projects?" I will apply a quantitative content analysis to answer this question and prove that media contents are unbiased. After that, we would be able to say in case of Prague the architectural topics are covered enough and readers have a chance to form their own opinions or not.
1 Univerzita Karlova v Praze Filozofická fakulta Katedra teorie kultury (kulturologie) Studijní program: Obecná teorie a dějiny umění a kultury Obor: Kulturologie Abstrakt disertační práce (anglicky) Mgr. Simona Juračková O architektuře a médiích On Architecture and Media Praha 2013 Školitel: PhDr. Vladimír Czumalo, CSc. These doctoral theses deal with relationship between the architecture and the public, and a clarification of a role massmedia play in it. The particular affair related to the project of a new building for the National Library in Prague by architect Jan Kaplicky was choosed as a base of this work. Plans were designed in 2006 and 2007. The first chapter contains detailed descrioption of the affair and analysis of gathered material. It explores courses and ways mass media reflect choosen affair. And it also deduces conclusions relevant for the whole sphere of a mass media frame in which architecture operates. In the second chapter selected affair provides a background for the exploration of relationships between the architecture, the public and mass media; a special attention is paid to individual roles of each. The chapter is also dedicated to the language of the architecture and its specifics in the relation to the language used for the reflection of the architecture; to the readiness of the...
