Fogong Temple

Choose one work of architecture covered in the course(I chose Fogong Temple). Write a 3,000-word paper that studies and interprets the work of architecture as a historical, cultural, and aesthetic product. Students should carefully investigate the specifics of the architecture itself, as well as historical movements, contemporary styles / trends, creative works (literature, art, dance, etc), client requests and needs, local resources, site specifics, and other factors in efforts to understand how a work of architecture came into being. The paper should be a holistic interpretation of the work of architecture, investigating a range of internal and external factors. The paper SHOULD NOT be a research report or book report, which is focused on the recounting of facts or is solely describing the work of architecture. This paper SHOULD BE an interpretation of the information students discover about the work of architecture and take a unique position. Analysis and synthesis of research is required to produce a paper that satisfies this assignment. The paper also should include a minimum of 5 images. Select images that enhance or illustrate the ideas you are discussing. Each image should be clearly labeled, have a caption, and the source be clearly cited in the footnotes at the bottom of the page. For example: “Figure 1: The north façade clearly features the library entrance and the intricate Art Deco details.32″ The image label (ie. Figure 1) should be referred to in the body of the paper to connect the paper text with the images.

Art Residency

Lecturer Instructions: Chapter II – 25 pages Literature review · contextualize for your design problem supported by data if possible, · Historical and theoretical background for the problem and solutions offered · Technical issues related depending on your selected design problem, · Current pressing issues that would affect the scene, ex. Sustainability, health and wellbeing, critical climatic issues, productive architecture, COVID 19, · Case studies presentation and analysis. At least 2-3 relevant cases. If needed other thematic cases as discussed in class, This chapter should conclude with a statement (1-3) pages that synthesize all the info in the chapter. This furnishes ground for the next chapter of programming issues. My Instructions: Overview – For my thesis paper I decided to do an Art residency. We were directed to find a problem in the community and provide architectural solutions. Recently the Bahamas had a terrible hurricane that devastated the island of Grand Bahama and left many residences displaced with no shelter. While trying to create an inclusive environment and bring about art awareness to this community I found it fitting to merge both ideas! Design problems: · 1. Lack of Art Awareness in the Bahamian Community. (This Art residency should help boost the economy, bringing various artist from around the world to this particular location) · 2. A need for a multipurpose facility: The intent is for the Art Residency to be converted into a Hurricane Shelter. 1. a. For this paper, I need a literature review of case studies depicting multiple art residencies. They must include: · a similar climate to the Bahamas · cultural aspects of the Bahamas 2. b. Review all aspects of the Art residencies such as: · their program · number of residents enrolled · how they bring awareness to the art community · how do they receive funding or sponsors · how do the residence sell their art work in auctions 3. c. Specify how the interior and exterior spaces are set up, as well as their adjacencies. 4. d. Sustainable Material (appropriate for Bahamian Climate) 5. e. Hurricane proof materials (façade, flooring, walls, paint, roof) 6. f. Review all aspects of a hurricane shelter

McKim Mead and White

Write a double-spaced, 5-6 page description of McKim, Mead, and White’s Pennsylvania Station in New York (1906-1910) based upon the images in this pdf. This paper will familiarize you with the way buildings are represented by studying plans and photographs. This is a looking exercise that asks you to use these documents to draw conclusions about what you can observe in the manner of an architectural historian. Indeed, since the station was demolished in 1963 and you never can visit it, these images and plans are the only surviving evidence! You can also find information about Pennsylvania Station in our textbook. This is a looking exercise, so you don’t have to do additional research, but if you do use any information from the textbook – or any other source– it must be cited with a numbered footnote located at the bottom of the page or points will be deducted. Points are taken off for using Wikipedia. For each footnote, you must provide the author, name of the book, publisher, date published, page number, etc. The footnote function is part of your word-processing program. Putting a page number in parentheses is not adequate. If you are unsure about how to footnote, consult The Chicago Manual of Style, The Modern Language Association (MLA) Handbook, or your teaching assistant. Your 5-6 paper should be written as separate answers to the following questions. Number the pages. Refer to the images by using the numbers in the pdf file (figure 1 etc.). Discuss all the images. You do not need to attach the images when you hand in your paper.  Using figure 1, describe the station’s relationship to its site. How is the station different from the buildings around it? How does it relate to the train tracks in the lower left-hand corner of figure 1. The large rectangular building in the foreground of fig. 1 is a post office also designed and built by McKim, Mead, and White in a style similar to the station. Think about how mail might have been delivered in those days. Why was it efficient to locate the post office on top of the railroad tracks?  Describe the exterior of the station (fig. 2). Is it humble, monumental etc.? Compare it to the buildings discussed in recent lectures, which can be found in our textbook. What style of architecture from the past was the station inspired by? What type of impression were the architects trying to make? Describe the plan of the station (fig. 3). Is it symmetrical or asymmetrical? Rational or confusing? What are the most important spaces? By studying the plan and figures 4-8, describe how you might arrive at the station, buy a ticket and get on a train. How does the driveway and bridge in figure 6 make the building more accessible from the surrounding streets or easier to use? What else might you do in the station as you prepare for your trip or wait for your train? Judging from the plans, how might this experience be different for men and women in 1910? What can you infer about society in 1910 from the way these spaces are allocated? Looking at fig. 7 & 8, describe the similarities and differences between the general waiting room and the concourse in terms of structure, materials, decoration or the absence of it. Clearly, the building is based upon historical precedents. Do you think the use of such precedents is appropriate for a 20th-century train station? Be sure to express your opinions. REMEMBER TO CHECK: Was your paper written as separate answers to the questions? If you took information taken from other sources, did you footnote it?
