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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Though we had end class early, Dan Rockhill provided an introspective look into what it is like to build for local conditions.
