1. Romaniuk, Olha. Designing in the Context of Urban Heterotopia: Participative Programming and Narrative Formation through Transversal Design Process.

Degree: M. Arch., Design, Architecture, Art and Planning : Architecture (Master of), 2010, University of Cincinnati

While historically a building design process involved a typical top-down, client-architect relationship, this hierarchical process is no longer effective in addressing the emerging heterotopic conditions of a contemporary city. With an evolving image of a Creative City, a term borrowed from Charles Landry, as a product of accumulation of collective cultural capital replacing the more traditional image of a city as system of hierarchies of control, it is evident that a client-architect power struggle prevalent in traditional linear methodology of programming is becoming obtrusive to effective programming processes of urban spaces today. Even though the prevalent top-down approach to programming still serves as a model for programming of most of the building projects in the United States today, it is becoming inadequate at keeping up with the emerging requirements for multiplicity of user needs and typologies in its limited contextual and physical response to dense urban environments. A potential for reformulating the current methodology of programming into a transversal and participatory decision-making process can be established by examining several major architectural competitions and the structural dynamics working within them. The derived methodology can serve as a model for conducting successful design competitions in the future that will be more likely to result in context-informed design solutions that take into an account multiple clients and stakeholders. This methodology and the participation of multiple stakeholders, in turn, will be able to ensure that the architectural responses to the proposed design challenges address a project’s potential for longevity and adaptability through contextual implications of the dense urban fabric of a city. Advisors/Committee Members: McInturf, Michael (Committee Chair), Kanekar, Aarati (Committee Chair).

2. Wolford, Jane N. Architectural contextualism in the twentieth century, with particular reference to the architects E. Fay Jones and John Carl Warnecke.

Degree: PhD, Architecture, 2005, Georgia Tech

A study of the importance, elements and techniques of architectural contextualism. Contextual architecture is here defined as architecture that creates relationships with its specific site or its broader physical or visual environment. This study posits the comprehensive definition of architectural contextualism on multiple levels: denotatively, connotatively, historically, philosophically, and in its aspects of critical regionalism. American architects adept at the practice of architectural contextualism during the mid-twentieth century offer principles and techniques. These architects are John Carl Warnecke, E. Fay Jones, and George White and others. This research has yielded the systematic, comprehensive definition of contextualism, a set of metrics which can be used as a basis of design and aid in the evaluation of the degree to which a building or set of buildings and their landscape are contextually congruent. Advisors/Committee Members: Lewcock, Ronald (Committee Chair), Craig, Robert (Committee Member), Galloway, Thomas (Committee Member), Peponis, John (Committee Member).

Subjects/Keywords: Metrics; Visual environments; Discrete elements; Critical regionalism; Architectural contextualism; Contextual buildings; Organic aesthetics
