Pink And Papered: The John And Bartha Moulton Homestead And Its Relationship To Broader Trends In Rural, Mormon, And Domestic Architecture In The American West, Noah Yoder

Theses (Historic Preservation)

The John and Bartha Moulton Homestead is one of six remaining homesteads settled by Mormon families along “Mormon Row,” an early 20th century ranching community in Grand Teton National Park. Built in 1938, the Moulton family’s home is known as the “Pink House” for its striking pink exterior. It is a standout relic of late-stage homesteading and has become a popular tourist attraction. The house has been unoccupied since 1990 and has been passively conserved by The National Park Service. As such, the building retains a high degree of integrity and still showcases original hardware, wallpaper, paint, and other ...


Conflicts And Convergences Of Preservation, Modernism And Sustainability In The Richards Medical Laboratories Renovation, Di Sung 2020 University of Pennsylvania 81818app手机版下载

Conflicts And Convergences Of Preservation, Modernism And Sustainability In The Richards Medical Laboratories Renovation, Di Sung

Theses (Historic Preservation)

81818app手机版下载Louis Kahn’s Richards Medical Laboratories underwent a two-phased renovation (2013-2015 & 2019), driven by University of Pennsylvania’s Century Bond program’s energy-saving objective. A national historic landmark, a Modernism masterpiece and a heavy equipment-bearing facility, the building had to meet satisfactory results for all the criteria as strict as possible: preservation, Modernism and sustainability. Every Mid-Century rehabilitation project accommodates similar requirements, Richards’ renovation provides a stringent example for others to reference upon. Thus a prudent review on what guidelines suggested, architects and engineers proposed and executed, post-renovation data and findings yielded, are crucial in forming a holistic apprehension. In ...


Receivership As A Tool For Preservation And Revitalization, Amanda Stevens 2020 University of Pennsylvania 81818app手机版下载

Receivership As A Tool For Preservation And Revitalization, Amanda Stevens

Theses (Historic Preservation)

81818app手机版下载Many neighborhoods are faced with the complex issues of blight and vacant properties, and, if left unaddressed, abandoned properties continue to deteriorate and are subject to demolition by neglect. Prolonged vacancy not only threatens the retention of historic urban fabrics, but also the safety and economic capacity of the surrounding areas. One option to remediate property abandonment is receivership, or the process where a court-appointed party takes control of a neglected property and is given the responsibility to stabilize, rehabilitate or demolish the structure in order to address seriously blighting conditions that the owner has been unwilling or unable to ...

Sanitary Acculturation: The Social History Of Progressive Era Public Bath Houses In Philadelphia, Sarah Lerner

Theses (Historic Preservation)

In 1895 the Public Bath Association of Philadelphia (PBA) was formed for the purpose of, “establishing and maintaining public baths and affording the poor facilities for bathing and the promotion of cleanliness.” In 1898 the PBA opened America’s first public bath house that offered both bathing and laundry facilities. This thesis illustrates how the organizational structure, geographic location, architectural aesthetics, function of space and technology, and advertising of Philadelphia’s public bathhouse embodies the social, cultural, economic, and political of environment of the city at the turn of the century. To properly understand the formation of the Public Bath ...

“For The Stones Will Cry Out”: An Analysis And Interpretation Of The Landscape Of Enslavement At Historic Brattonsville, York County, South Carolina, Gabriel Harper

Theses (Historic Preservation)

81818app手机版下载The purpose of this study is to analyze the landscape of enslavement at Historic Brattonsville located in York County, South Carolina and propose an interpretive framework to be utilized by caretakers of the site as well as future scholarship of American slavery and related topics. The development of the Bratton Plantation largely reflects both a regional and nationwide socio-economic dependence on the institution of slavery. “Brattonsville” would grow to become one of the largest cotton plantations in South Carolina, at one-point enslaving 139 peoples. Due in part to the extensive history of slavery at the site, Historic Brattonsville offers a ...


Evaluation And Summary Of Pa Site Deaccession By Phmc, Sarah Knauer 2020 University of Pennsylvania

Evaluation And Summary Of Pa Site Deaccession By Phmc, Sarah Knauer

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis evaluated the process by which the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) deaccessed its publicly owned historical sites through the Blue-Ribbon Report (1981) and the Blue Ribbon Committee (1997) to determine sites response and determine which typology of deaccession was the Most, Less, and Least successful. As a direct result of drastic budgets cuts by the Commonwealth PHMC’s sites that it directly administrated and operated dropped from 57 in 1981 to 14 in 2019. The first report in 1981 split the 57 sites into three groups of importance (Most, Less and Least ) based on integrity, significance, and ...


"Mansions Of Mud": Los Angeles And The Adobe Revival, Elizabeth Sexton 2020 University of Pennsylvania 81818app手机版下载

"Mansions Of Mud": Los Angeles And The Adobe Revival, Elizabeth Sexton

Theses (Historic Preservation)

This thesis examines the beginnings of the Adobe Revival (c. 1894-1948) in Los Angeles. It presents an analysis of the economic, cultural, political, and environmental factors that worked together to shift biases and generate renewed interest in adobe’s practical applicability for modern housing in the early twentieth century. By 1920, several architects, builders, and developers – most of whom were transplants to the state – began to experiment with adobe construction as a residential design solution for the rapidly expanding city. Prompted by a shortage of wood and resulting price surge following World War I, these individuals embraced adobe, claiming it ...

Triconch Churches Sponsored By Serbian And Wallachian Nobility, Jelena Bogdanović 2020 Iowa State University

Triconch Churches Sponsored By Serbian And Wallachian Nobility, Jelena Bogdanović

Architecture Publications

81818app手机版下载Architectural activities of remarkable quality continued to thrive north of Byzantium under the sponsorship of Serbian and Wallachian nobility long after the fall of Byzantium and occasionally even in territories under Ottoman rule.1 As suggested by Slobodan Ćurčić, triconch domed churches, which have been enduring examples of Middle Byzantine architecture and especially of monastic architecture on Mount Athos, shaped notions of an Orthodox Christian identity shared by Serbs and Wallachians, as opposed to the Islamic architecture of the Ottoman Turks.2 Interest in triconch domed churches in the Balkans started with the studies of the French archeologist and historian ...


Residential Seismic Retrofit Cost For Home Located In Tustin, California, Sara Clark 2020 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Residential Seismic Retrofit Cost For Home Located In Tustin, California, Sara Clark

Construction Management

81818app手机版下载Seismically retrofitting a residential home not only protects the homeowner, but also helps them prepare for the future. Needless to say, many older homes are not up to the 2018 International Residential Code. As a result, many owners are uninformed about how much it will cost to retrofit their home and what changes will have to be made. The solution for this is determining a cost per square foot ratio that will help homeowners calculate an estimate for the retrofit of their home. Additionally, it is important to break this cost down into what specific changes need to be made ...


Purposefully Forgetting: Surveying San Diego’S Founding Narrative During The City’S Bicentennial Celebrations Of 1969, Noah Pallmeyer 2020 University of San Diego 81818app手机版下载

Purposefully Forgetting: Surveying San Diego’S Founding Narrative During The City’S Bicentennial Celebrations Of 1969, Noah Pallmeyer

Keck Undergraduate Humanities Research Fellows

The city of San Diego owes much its success and prosperity to the “victories associated with colonization.” This quote comes directly from the current National Park Service description of the San Diego Presidio. This project turns to the 1969 bicentennial celebrations of San Diego’s founding. This was a rhetorically powerful period in San Diego’s historical remembrance. This project argues that native and other marginalized populations were not properly considered in the narrative of San Diego’s founding during these celebrations. To understand why and how these populations failed to be properly considered, this project turns to the narratives ...


I Hear You Now, I See You Then, Quinn Hunter 2020 Ohio University

I Hear You Now, I See You Then, Quinn Hunter

Art + Design Masters Theses

In the research driven project I Hear You Now, I See You Then, I refer to the contemporary and historical erasure of the labor of African American women using research gathered from the southern plantation economy to create an art installation. The objects in this installation are primarily made with artificial hair integrations and utilizing labor intensive methods that are similar to those used to install the hair on the Black body. The objects I make reference the luxury items in the domestic spaces of historic plantation sites that have been re-branded to be used in the wedding /tourism industry ...

A Second Life: The Adaptation Of Dying Italian Towns To Accommodate Immigrants And Refugees, Rachel Rubis 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville 81818app手机版下载

A Second Life: The Adaptation Of Dying Italian Towns To Accommodate Immigrants And Refugees, Rachel Rubis

Architecture Undergraduate Honors Theses

Despite its efforts in historic preservation, there is an abundance of culturally significant Italian vernacular towns dying due to dilapidation and depopulation. Simultaneously, Italy has faced an ongoing stream of immigrants and refugees seeking work, housing, and asylum within its borders—a crisis that has resulted in Italian fear and animosity aside immigrant maltreatment and hardship. My research, which is supplemented by first-hand experience in Italy, qualitative analysis, and text sources, proposes interventions into dying Italian towns to aid in the resettlement of immigrants and refugees—an effort meant to be mutually beneficial to both the town and the immigrant ...


Rethinking The Genesis Of Mudéjar Architecture In Medieval Toledo, Elizabeth Dowker 2020 William & Mary 81818app手机版下载

Rethinking The Genesis Of Mudéjar Architecture In Medieval Toledo, Elizabeth Dowker

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Following the surrender of Toledo to Alfonso VI of Castile-León in 1085 C.E., shifting political and religious power remolded the social fabric and land ownership of the city. As the former capitol of the Visigothic empire and one of the cities on the ‘frontier’ of a hegemonically Christian Spain, Toledo was a nexus of the manifestation of Reconquest ideology for Castilian Christians. Religious buildings in Toledo constructed or expanded during the twelfth- through fourteenth-centuries express stylistic adaptation and growth. However, the terminology used to describe this architecture needs further clarification. This thesis suggests that with respect to Toledo, the ...
