1. GHOSH, SUDIPTO. POCHÈ PARISIENNE: THE INTERIOR URBANITY OF NINETEENTH CENTURY PARIS.

Degree: MS ARCH, Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning : Architecture, 2001, University of Cincinnati

The "Haussmannization" of Paris was characterized as much by what it 'defined', as by what it excluded. The paper focuses on the apartment houses, the brothels, and the sewers as embodiments of those exclusions that were part of the process of Paris's modernization between 1852 and 1870. By analyzing the representations of these spaces in architectural drawings, photographs and the literary novel, the thesis posits that poché, an architectural drawing technique of defining and excluding, was implicitly a part of that process. For Haussmann and Napoleon III, the image of progress was built upon the elimination of all that could not be observed, decoded, or homogenized. Emile Zola's novels, on the other hand, are attacks on Haussmannization that criticize the literal and moral filth that lay behind the new structures of the city and their deceptively imposing facades. Both their attempts, the thesis argues, are comparable to the technique of poché that covers up of certain elements of an architectural drawing in order for other elements to emerge more clearly. Realizing that the act of differentiation, embodied in the poché is only a technique or method opens up possibilities in architectural thinking that may reach outside its restrictions. Advisors/Committee Members: Hancock, John E. (Advisor).
