unplanned wanderings: and the discovery of a pier

Williamson, Micheal 15 September 2008 (has links)
My question here revolves around my orientation with my own work; my own frustrations and inability to so often answer the question “can a meaningful place be designed?” This journey examines the theory of semiotics. Through this, three strategies have been developed to explore the branches of semiotic research in Landscape Architecture. The first strategy allows meaning to develop through time, and it is with the repeated usage of people that meaning will accrue. The second strategy shows how meaning can be determined before the design through mapping current and desired locations of meaning in space. And, the third strategy reflects on how meaning emerges from the earth when no interference from designers or users occurs. The result of the three individual strategies is a combination of solutions, illustrating how to create places of true richness. This new space will engage visitors, pull in new visitors, and help create something memorable for those engaging in a space. / October 2008

No. of bitstreams: 1 ValkiriaAiresViegas.pdf: 8922033 bytes, checksum: 379eb5178100f51a32bb17c3542c5ef6 (MD5) Previous issue date: 2015-06-25 / Brazil possesses a wealth of natural resources, however part of the population, even living near these resources, has a low quality of life. This same context can be perceived in Maranhão. The state has diverse vegetation composed of the Amazon Forest, savanna, mata dos cocais (coconut wooded region), swamps and the second largest coast in the country with immense marine biodiversity. However, the state of Maranhão has the municipalities with the lowest Municipal Human Development Index (MHDI). In this context, the dissertation directs the perspective to Sustainable Design seeking to understand which Project strategies can stimulate the valorization of local resources and the form in which such strategies can be understood and applied to lead product development, services and sustainable communication in a Maranhense context. The hypothesis of this research is that Design possesses tools and the capacity to stimulate and increase local activities, and from this point, improve people’s quality of life. The research was carried out in three stages: Theoretical Foundation composed of bibliographical and documental research; Intensive Direct Observation which combined simple and contextual observation with structured and semistructured interviews; and finally, Qualitative Analysis of data obtained in these stages using the babaçu coconut productive chain in the Itapecuru Mirim micro-region in Maranhão as demarcation. As a result of this study, relations were establishe between Design management levels, the main obstacles in the babaçu cocnut productive chain and sustainable design strategies that favor the valorization and promotion of local resources in Maranhão. / O Brasil apresenta grandes riquezas em recursos naturais, no entanto, uma parte da população, mesmo residindo próximo a esses recursos, vive com uma baixa qualidade de vida. Esse mesmo contexto pode ser percebido no Maranhão. O estado apresenta uma vegetação diversificada, composta de floresta Amazônica, cerrado, mata de cocais, mangues e o segundo maior litoral do país com a imensa biodiversidade marinha. Porém, o estado do Maranhão tem os municípios com os mais baixos Índices de Desenvolvimento Humano Municipal do Brasil (IDMH). Nesse contexto, esta dissertação direciona o olhar para o Design Sustentável buscando compreender quais as estratégias de projeto podem estimular a valorização dos recursos locais e a forma como tais estratégias podem ser entendidas e aplicadas para orientar o desenvolvimento de produtos, serviços e comunicação sustentáveis no contexto maranhense. A hipótese deste trabalho é que o Design possui ferramentas e a capacidade para estimular e incrementar as atividades produtivas locais para, a partir disso, proporcionar um aumento na qualidade de vida das pessoas. A pesquisa foi executada em três etapas: a Fundamentação Teórica, composta por uma pesquisa bibliográfica e uma pesquisa documental; a Observação Direta Intensiva, que combinou uma observação simples com uma observação contextual e entrevistas de tipo estruturada e semiestruturada; e, por fim, a Análise Qualitativa dos dados obtidos nessas etapas, tendo como delimitação de pesquisa a cadeia produtiva do babaçu presente no município de Itapecuru Mirim no Maranhão. Como resultado desse estudo foram estabelecidas relações entre os problemas identificados e os níveis da gestão do design envolvidos, os principais entraves da cadeia produtiva do babaçu e as estratégias de design sustentável que favorecem a valorização e a promoção dos recursos locais no Maranhão.

On Urban Architecture: Urban Architectural Strategies In Three Examplary Cases

Komez, Esin 01 July 2009 (has links) (PDF)
The term &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / has different meanings and is open to many interpretations. This thesis aims to highlight and further elaborate some definitions of &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / in which it is mainly characterized as architecture in the urban context. The Second Volume of Harvard Architecture Review on &ldquo / Urban Architecture&rdquo / is referred as a main source in discussing the content of the term. The concept of &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / can be identified in several theoretical contributions to the field of architecture. In this context, the themes &ldquo / urban artifact&rdquo / developed by Aldo Rossi and &ldquo / urbatecture&rdquo / developed by Bruno Zevi, are discussed in relation to &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / . In order to further clarify the concept, its relation to the fields of urban design, urbanism, and landscape urbanism is investigated. While it is distinguished from these fields, &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / is defined as an alternative architectural design approach and not as a new field. As an approach to architectural design that operates in an expanded field including landscape design and urbanism, &ldquo / urban architecture&rdquo / points to some strategies that allow to integrate works of architecture into their urban settings. Following this conceptual elaboration, the thesis aims at exploring the design strategies that characterize urban architecture. In this context, strategies related with landscape, infrastructure, and urban field are identified. The strategies based on these themes and their tools of operation are discussed through three case studies that cover Olympic Sculpture Park for the Seattle Art Museum, Kunsthal, and Borneo and Sporenburg.

An Inquiry On Contemporary Parks And Design Strategies

Uludag, Seda 01 February 2011 (has links) (PDF)
There has been a notable interest in landscape design in the recent years. Growing environmental consciousness and the deindustrialization process in cities have resulted in the new park design projects which have been created through recovery of waste lands. The thesis examines a number of selected park projects with two frameworks which are the reclamation methods and the design strategies. The reclamation methods constitute the ways of recovering wastelands / while, the design strategies constitute the design approaches and methods used in these projects at urban scale. The contemporary approaches to park design are studied in the thesis, in three parts which are &#039 / &#039 / the strategic design&#039 / &#039 / , &#039 / &#039 / the place-based design&#039 / &#039 / and &#039 / &#039 / the ecological design&#039 / &#039 / . Two proposals of the Parc de la Villette competition, Parc Andr&eacute / Citro&euml / n, Bercy, Invaliden, Downsview, Fresh Kills and High Line parks are the cases studied. A categorization of the approaches was done according to the design concepts of the projects. Strategic design comprises the projects conceived in a way that would adapt to future conditions / place-based design covers the projects designed by referring to the meanings derived from their sites with the aim to maintain or create a sense of place / and finally ecological design cover projects which were designed to sustain and diversify the ecological values of their sites. The examination of three types of park design approaches does not propose a strict categorization / but rather it displays continuities in the evolution of park designs. The design concepts, strategies and tools, besides the working principles and innovative aspects of these approaches are studied in a comparative way. The thesis is concluded with an evaluation of the new significances of landscape design.

Senio co-housing design in China's suburban environment

Luo, Rui, 21st century 08 July 2014 (has links)
The main design problem that I investigated is: How might senior co-housing in China’s suburban environment interact with culture, comfort and energy as a response to China’s aging issues? The topic will be explored into the following two parts: (1) The feasibility study of senior co-housing as a new housing type responding to China’s aging issues. (2) The prototype design of a senior co-housing community in China’s suburban environment--- a study on its interaction with culture, comfort and energy. China is currently experiencing a rapid demographic shift. In mid-January 2011, China’s National Bureau of Statistics announced that China now has roughly 185 million people over the age of 60, and this number will increase to 248 million by 2020 (Benjamin Shobert 2012). According to the data from the United Nations World Population Prospects at May 31, 2011, by the year 2030, more than 24.4% of China’s population will be over the age of 60, compared to the ratio of 25.3 in the U.S. The increasing aging population will make China one of the oldest countries in the world. While the aging issue is global, the specific context makes it unique in China. The “one-child policy” (officially translated as “family planning policy”), which restricts urban couples to only one child, has been carried out since 1979(“Family Planning in China” 2013), and dramatically changed the family structure in China. In the beginning of last 90s, every 1 elderly in China was supported by 10 adult children. For now, assuming the fact that the “one-child” policy is not quite functioning in most rural areas, the ratio becomes 1 to 3. This means the traditional family size is shrinking, and the function of the family is weakening. Meanwhile, the massive migration among the youth generation in China has made this situation even worse--lots of elderly parents and grandparents stay geographically distant from their children, which means the traditional cross-generational housing model will no longer be an option. Since their single child is unable to care for them, the current age 50+ generation that has been affected by the ‘one-child policy’ would face a lack of resources and necessities. Based on the facts stated above, a discourse arises in recent years: What is the housing option that meets the needs of the current 50+ generation, considering China’s context-specific constraints? Starting with the interest of answering those questions, the whole study consists of two parts: Firstly, by studying China’s context-specific constraints, proposing an alternative housing type; secondly, conducting a prototype design of this particular housing type by further exploring the design problem. The first part has been done by the author through an independent study during the Fall 2013 semester, in which the author discussed the importance and feasibility of applying senior co-housing in China’s suburban environment as a solution to China’s aging issues. In the Master Study Design, the author will combine the knowledge/ findings from the independent study with design strategies. Chosen a senior co-housing community with 15 occupants in a selected suburban environment as the study object, the author hopes to find a design solution by proposing a scheme that interacts with culture, comfort and energy. / text

Exploring The Potential Of Mat-building For The Creation Of Universally Designed Environments

Eren, Yasemin 01 June 2004 (has links) (PDF)
EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL OF MAT-BUILDING FOR THE CREATION OF UNIVERSALLY DESIGNED ENVIRONMENTS Eren, Yasemin M. Arch., Department of Architecture Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emel Ak&ouml / zer Co-Supervisor: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Halime Demirkan June 2004, 152 Pages The goal of this study is to reread the strategies of formal organization in architecture, which are called &ldquo / mat-building&rdquo / and &ldquo / mat-urbanism&rdquo / , exploring their potential to contribute to the creation of universally designed built environments in the 21st century. The idea of mat-building was first delineated by Alison Smithson in 1974, in her article &ldquo / How to Recognize and Read Mat-Building,&rdquo / by means of its traditional and modern examples. The concept of universal design was first used in 1970&rsquo / s and reinterpreted by the American architect Ronald Mace in 1985. Since then, it has become a widely accepted design approach that is also known as &lsquo / inclusive design&rsquo / and &lsquo / design for all&rsquo / . Mat-building can be considered as a viable design approach that can respond to the crucial need for equally accessible, adjustable and adaptable built environments for all people all over the world. The study aims not only to evaluate the exemplary mat like configurations in light of the universal design principles. It also tries to point to the new ways for developing creative ideas and design theories, and emphasizes the significance of implementing the universal design approach in contemporary architecture and urbanism.

Paisagismo contemporâneo :estratégias para o projeto de praças. / Contemporary landscape : design strategies for squares.

Bergamini, Claudio Estevão 22 November 2009 (has links)
The landscape today is the greatest area of conceptual and formal trials involving the field of architecture. In the last decades of the twentieth and early twenty-first century, attended to the more radical proposals for landscape design in creating outdoor environments at all scales. These changes aim to create a new nature, closer to humans, more suitable for scale and contemporary taste. From the 1980s, the landscape design have become more extensive and took more freedom with regard to the concepts and strategies for projecting. The aim of this paper is to discuss the theoretical foundations of contemporary landscape and their effects on design strategies applicants in a recent study of Brazilian landscape. The methodology was chosen: (i) a research literature review of historical character, this investigates the influences of the modern landscape in contemporary new designs in the international arena, and Brazil, there is the influence of architecture concepts on the contemporary landscape and address the aspects and disciplines working closely together in the design of contemporary landscape design, which are the functional aspect - related to urban design, the aesthetic - relating to art and architecture and contemporary aspect Environment - related to environmental comfort and concern about global warming and environmental sustainability, (ii) analysis in three areas (functional, aesthetic and environmental) of eight squares - two squares in four Brazilian cities: Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, in the southeast, and Recife and Maceio, in northeastern Brazil. Although there is a difference provided by the history and heritage of each region, contemporary designs have a unit with regard to the creation of artificial environments, with great influence of architecture which are more consistent with the formalism, technology, entrepreneurship and contemporary poetry. This paper aims to contribute to the formation of clearer thinking about the fundamentals of landscaping and a professional practice less stereotyped, avoiding projects based on mere formality. / Fundação de Amparo a Pesquisa do Estado de Alagoas / O paisagismo atualmente se constitui na maior área de experimentações conceituais e formais que envolvem o campo da arquitetura. Nas últimas décadas do século XX e início do século XXI, assistiram-se as mais radicais propostas de desenho da paisagem na criação de ambientes exteriores em todas as escalas. Estas transformações visam à criação de uma nova natureza, mais próxima do ser humano, mais adequada a sua escala e ao gosto contemporâneo. A partir da década de 1980, os projetos de paisagismo passaram a ser mais abrangentes e tomaram maior liberdade no que diz respeito aos conceitos e estratégias projetuais. O objetivo deste trabalho é discutir os fundamentos teóricos do paisagismo contemporâneo e o seu rebatimento em estratégias de projeto recorrentes no trabalho recente dos paisagistas brasileiros. Como metodologia, optou-se por: (i) uma pesquisa de revisão de literatura de caráter histórico, nesta investiga-se as influências do paisagismo moderno nas novas concepções contemporâneas no cenário internacional e no Brasil, verifica-se a influência dos conceitos da arquitetura contemporânea sobre o paisagismo e abordam-se os aspectos e as disciplinas que atuam de maneira conjunta na concepção dos projetos de paisagismo contemporâneos, que são: o aspecto funcional - relacionado ao desenho urbano, o aspecto estético - relacionado à arte e a arquitetura contemporânea e o aspecto ambiental - relacionado ao conforto ambiental e à preocupação com o aquecimento global e a sustentabilidade ambiental; (ii) análise, sob três aspectos (funcional, estético e ambiental) de oito praças - duas praças em quatro capitais brasileiras: São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro, na região sudeste; e Recife e Maceió, na região nordeste. Embora haja uma diferença propiciada pela história e herança cultural de cada região, os projetos contemporâneos apresentam uma unidade no que diz respeito à criação de ambientes artificiais, com grande influência da arquitetura, que sejam mais coerentes com o formalismo, a tecnologia, o espírito e a poesia contemporânea. Este trabalho visa contribuir para a formação de um pensamento mais claro sobre os fundamentos do paisagismo e para uma prática profissional menos estereotipada, evitando-se projetos baseados em simples formalismo.
