1. Chappell, Annette. Contemporary applications of Fresco : The narrative of the artist.

Degree: PhD, 2017, Federation University Australia

Fresco is a vehicle for powerful and enduring forms of cultural storytelling; it references universal narrative themes. The research objective of this project is to achieve a contemporary application of fresco through exploration and transgression of traditional material, pictorial forms and functions. In this transgression, the artist locates a personal narrative, through the immersive methods of autoethnographic inquiry and from the epistemological position of material thinking and production. The contemporary application of fresco is arrived at by interrogating the traditional methods, materials and intentions of fresco as recorded in fifteenth-century Europe and with reference to what other contemporary practitioners in this field have achieved. Materials knowledge and methods gained through on-site material conservation of lime plaster fresco is an impetus to this project and has engendered a focus on re-purposing and re-imagining the media in contemporary and personal expressions. The narrative of the artist is arrived at through materials thinking in fresco methodology, and through an interpretive autoethnographic analysis of a personal archive or studio text consisting of visual and textual material. The studio text is regarded as a unique ethnographic artefact of personal significance. The new term of ‘studio text’ for practice-led research is proposed to differentiate practice-led language and forms from the sociological or positivist terminology of ‘fieldwork notes’ or ‘data’. Autoethnographic methodology is disrupted to incorporate the indwelling practices of material thinking and immersive writing (ekphrasis) and drawing (enstasis). Through the integration of these methodologies, interpretations of the studio text are enacted concurrently with material production. Materials and motifs are selected for personal significance and resonance, and constructed as part or full frescoes. The material outcomes of this integration of methodologies are described as Visual Diaries and publicly exhibited. The documentation of integrated methodology in this project may contribute to emergent thinking in practice-led research.

2. Ma, Shimeng. The continuation of traditional garden design principles into contemporary landscape architecture in China.

Degree: Master of Landscape Architecture, Landscape Architecture, 2014, University of Southern California

This research aims to explore the possibilities of the continuation of traditional garden design principles into contemporary landscape architecture in China. ❧ Traditional Chinese gardens have a history of thousands of years. Influenced by local religions, traditional gardens reflect the values of the ancient Chinese people as well as their living environment preferences. The country’s transformation period from feudalism to communism lasted from the 1840s to the 1970s. Many cultural art forms, including garden design, have not been well inherited since then. Leaving a gap between garden design and contemporary landscape architecture. ❧ The rapidly increasing urbanization rate in China provides plentiful project opportunities for landscape architecture. Endeavors have been made by local and foreign scholars and practitioners from both perspectives of urban development and ecological sustainability. However, traditional garden design has been ignored despite how the profession is prospering. ❧ The argument of the thesis has been situated within the framework of Kenneth Frampton’s essay entitled “Towards a Critical Regionalism: Six Points for an Architecture of Resistance” (1983). The importance of the continuation of tradition in contemporary design is stressed throughout the paper. Several attempts for applying traditional design principles in contemporary projects are introduced, and the future possibilities for such continuation are discussed. ❧ This research has ultimately aimed to seek ways in which traditional design culture can mediate the influence of globalization. An ideal outcome of this research would involve raising Chinese designers’ awareness about China’s cultural and landscape architectural heritage. ❧ In this research, efforts were made to seek ways in which traditional design culture can mediate the globalization influences. Also, it is hoped to raise Chinese designers’ awareness about China’s culture heritage in landscape architecture. Advisors/Committee Members: Hirsch, Alison (Committee Chair).
