Because of this reason, this paper intends to look at other countries criteria and comparing them, first by identifying relevant measures of project success with literature review, and then defining and discussing other countries criteria. In literature review, the success factors of construction projects are discussed in different views of previous researchers. Also, this review is important for determining critical success factors and revealing project success measurement criteria. They include objective and subjective assessments. After all of this, the concept of success in construction projects are discussed in different country
Tectonics, however, has the capacity to create depth-ness of context resulting in the implicit story being told by the tectonic expression. The implicit message would allow for varying personal interpretation, the acquisition of meaning or symbolism over time, as well as the possibility of that meaning changing with time. Tectonic expression is therefore concerned with the relation between the idea of construction and the construction itself. This goes to show that architectonics is the basis for careful consideration of materials and as such, inevitably leads to a design outcome with more significance. Since the exploration of materiality is part of such an important process, it comes as no surprise as to why certain architects use tectonics for the materialisation of their design strategies.
For over decades, architecture and interior design have struggled with how and where they intersect as professions. Both lines of work are somewhat dependent and complete one another but not everyone has a clear understanding of where each profession’s responsibility and duty lies. This research is aimed at the sole purpose of comprehending the similarities and differences between the two and identifying where they meet in construction projects. Interior design deals with creating a coordinated whole in which the finished architecture, site, function, and visual aspects of the interior are unified that meet the demands of the activities to be conducted while the practice of architecture puts more emphasizes on spatial relationships, orientation,
According to Curl (2000), it is also a term that suggests an architecture that responds to its surrounding by respecting what is already there, unlike Constructivism or Decontructivism which deliberately work against established geometries and fabric. According to the etymological manner statement made by Johnson (as cited in Cizgen, 2012) about Contextualism that expresses the relationship and the architecture context, he said that: “Derived from the Latin word “contexere”, which means weaving together, the word “context” can be described as “the setting of an event, composition, or text, in the sense of describing the spatio-temporal parts immediately preceding or following that determine its meaning." The word “contexture” which is no longer in use, can be considered to be more specific for the field of architecture as it has the following meaning: "the
During the Baroque and Rococo eras, changes in historical, social and religious context had a great impact on the approach to design at the time. This essay will show, through critical reflection and through analysis of examples of furniture and product design, how historical, social and religious transformations affected design style and philosophy during those eras. Moreover, this essay will address the concept of absolutism and its impact on design at the time; the evolutionary nature of design styles; and explore defining characteristics of the Baroque and Rococo styles. This essay will make use of the following examples of furniture and product design that, due to their characteristic representation of the Baroque and Rococo eras, will help support discussions: Baroque-styleAmerican cupboard, Baroque dressing table, Baroque-style dresser, Rococo bouquetier, Rococo microscope, Rococo pier-table. In this essay, it is important to understand what is meant by the following terms in the context of the time period.
Abstract Whether it is a house, apartment, bungalow or some other dwelling, homes are very important to the people who live in them. The architectural design of these homes often times can affect how we behave and how we relate to others. This study focuses on how the architectural design of houses impacts social behavior. It looks to symbolic interactionism to examine this topic further and finds that, people who live in homes that have been designed to take into consideration their personal preferences will be happier because, architecture reflects and expresses self, architectural symbols affect our environment, and designed physical buildings act as agents that invite self-reflection. To examine this topic, research of existing sources
Peter Zumthor Peter Zumthor’s style of architecture perhaps epitomizes the principles of phenomenology, a belief system brought about by the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. Zumthor believes that to truly understand a building it needs to be experienced in person. Phenomenology Phenomenology is the study of the structures of our experience and our consciousness. This school was founded by Edmund Husserl and is based on the premise that our reality consists out of object and events as they are perceived
The English literature was moulded through the epochal seasonings of its tip to toe introspection and contemplation. Each era marks their signature before it leaving behind the cultural, scientific, political innovations and contributions to the sprouting generation. Modernism emerged as a timely necessity which eventually reflected the complexity of urban life superficially but as the rejection of history and substitution of a mythical past. It is also said to be as the product of intellectual crisis, occurring when structures of enquiry were overwhelmingly scientific, yet the limitations were palpably felt. I intend to elucidate here, Modernism in its totality represents an aura of unique expressional aesthetic varieties imparting time unbound
Program will be the history of architecture and landscape architecture. This option will offer me a detailed study program that will prepare me to carry out research and teach in the relevant disciplines. The program focusses on architecture through different historic times as well as on the historic cultures, while especially emphasizing on understanding landscapes or buildings along with their designers in history as intricate and interconnected wholes that incorporate meaning, culture, function, tectonics and aesthetics. The PhD program in history of architecture and landscape architecture mainly focusses on understanding structural designs and their historical contexts over time. New designs have been adopted since the onset of architecture, and thus, with the concentration of a history of architecture, new phenomenon and innovations are realized that would help in further explanation and address of other necessities in the same sector.
In this essay that follows, my main intention is to critically analyse a postmodernist architect according to the characteristics, concepts and ideologies of Postmodernism. I will be unpacking the connection between postmodernism and my architect. I have found two key examples that shall be utilized for a visual analysis to substantiate the point that I am putting across. What is postmodernism? According to Hart (2004:14) “Post modernism is an open set of approaches, attitudes and styles to art and culture that started by questioning or exceeding or tooling with one or more aspects of modernism.” This shows that postmodernism is a movement that fed from modernist styles as inspiration to create artistic elements that will be appealing to the
