2. Thomas, Jr., Emmett E. The Search For Structure in a Baptist Church.

Degree: M. Arch., Architecture, 1998, Virginia Tech

First Baptist Church of Guilford in Columbia, MD is seeking a design for its fourth church due to its ever increasing membership. The needs of its members and surrounding community are however not limited to worship but also include the desire for commercial areas for business ventures, day care, and recreational facilities. These desires have the making of a â Super Churchâ which has become all too common in metropolitan areas. The requirements of a growing church body requires the architect to have an understanding of the denomination, liturgy, and possess the design creativity to construct a structural envelope that is suitable for a religious building. The purpose of this thesis is to explore alternative prototypical structural and architectural solutions in response to the building program created by the Architectural Committee and their design consultants. Advisors/Committee Members: O'Brien, Michael J. (committeechair), Blizard, Mark A. (committee member), Rott, Hans Christian (committee member).

3. Shirley, Bruce Jarrett. The Ratio of Forces: Their Application Within the Initiation of a Village.

Degree: M. Arch., Architecture, 1997, Virginia Tech

In discovering and forming thoughts about architecture I came to harbor a theory for all things around and within me. A complimenting ratio of forces that, thought their union, create a third equally important force. 1 + 1 = 3. This concept is presented here in its raw form thought the use of analogies and examples, then separated into five simple categories demonstrating its use within architecture: Preservation, Restoration, Renovation, Addition, New Fabrication. Architectural integrity of any given project is reviled by the character and skill of the architect's manipulation of the contributing forces present. As an in depth example of how these ratios of forces can be applied to an architectural project, an abandoned coal mine sited in Montgomery County, Virginia is selected for the initiation of a village. The historic forces of the Tower and Plaza are transferred to the individual and private scale aiding in the development of the village unit. Existing structures and site features compliment new elements creating the town fabric of units and streets as well as the village's own towers and plazas. A community created trough renovation -complimenting forces. Advisors/Committee Members: Egger, Dayton Eugene (committeechair), Blizard, Mark A. (committee member), Mitchell, Larry D. (committee member), Braaten, Ellen B. (committee member), Reinholtz, Charles F. (committee member).
