Final papers are due in my mailbox in “The Barn” by 5pm on Thursday May 8th. Follow the project brief on how to finish the paper. Please bring a physical copy to the barn and email me a digital copy. Thanks for a good semester.
HISTORY – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
The final Image Set 07 has been posted to the website. All presentations are due on Thursday. If you need to reference the Research Paper Project Brief, follow the link. The line-up is as follows:
RELIGION – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
Next Friday, Easter Break begins. In spite of the break, we will still hold class during the regular time. Image Set 7 is due and we will discuss History as a Determinant of Form.
The discussion on Image Set 06 & Religion has been posted to the website and the reading, Why Primitive Form Languages Spread is there too.
SOCIAL ORGANIZATION – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
Image Set 5 and the images for Social Organization as a Determinant of Form have been posted to the website. Be sure to read the remainder of Rapoport’s Chapter 2 for class on Thursday.
Determinism = cause and effect
ECONOMICS – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
How does economics impact architectural form? Economics does not only refer to forms of currency, but the way in which resources are extracted, used, and traded. We explored this question through the lens of Image Set 04 and Amos Rapoport’ second Chapter in House, Form, and Culture. There is not reading due for next week as the Outline and Revised Thesis is due. BE SURE TO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS!
Outline & Revised Thesis:
Week Twelve, 04/03 | 10% Research Project Grade
After receiving comments on the annotated bibliography and thesis, make revisions to the initial thesis statement. The thesis statement should now be a part of an outline. The outline must be broken down into an introduction, body, and conclusion. The body must further break into the points you will discuss throughout the paper.
CLIMATE – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
In class, we discussed Image Set 3 & the ways in which Climate impacts American Indian Architecture. The Image Sets have been posted along with the Reading for next week.
READ CH 2 FROM RAPOPORT’S HOUSE, FORM, CULTURE
As most of you get your Spring Break on, don’t forget to devote some time to topics. No reading has been assigned, but you should be diving into the books included on your Annotated Bibliographies. Image Set 02 has been posted to the site as well as the video Wounded Knee_We Shall Remain.
Last item to remember…enjoy your Spring Break.
TECHNOLOGY – DETERMINANTS OF FORM
We have kicked off the second phase of this seminar and will now delve into issues brought forth by the reservations you all are looking at as well as focus on American Indian/Native American Architecture. The Readings & the first Image Sets have been posted.
Though we had end class early, Dan Rockhill provided an introspective look into what it is like to build for local conditions.
Our film was cut short and I have provided a link to the PBS We Shall Remain website as well as a link to the YouTube video. The images of Public Squares have also been posted.
