The architectural manifesto. Architecture is as much a discourse as it is a phys

The architectural manifesto. Architecture is as much a discourse as it is a physical practice. Throughout written history, architects, scholars, and patrons have written about what architecture is and what role it should play in society. Your weekly readings throughout the semester have provided examples of the various ways in which ideas about architecture have been produced in and through the written word.
In this assignment, it is your turn to write an architectural manifesto. You will base the manifesto on the work you have chosen for your sketchbook assignments throughout the semester. Using the tools of formal analysis you have developed each week in your sketchbook and the work we have been doing in class to connect form and social context, you will use a discussion of this building to articulate your vision for the role of architecture in society.
You may choose to write from the perspective of the building’s architect, patron, or one of its everyday occupants. You may choose to endorse the architectural principles on which the building is based or you may wish to reject them. It should be clear from the text of the manifesto, however, what personal perspective (architect, patron, or occupant) you have chosen to adopt. You will also want to consider audience. To whom are you speaking and why are you trying to convince them?
Structure and Organization:
In order to be persuasive, your manifesto will need a clear sense of structure. You will need to include an introduction and conclusion that summarize your main points. The body paragraphs of the manifesto should proceed in a logical order.
Evidence:
In order to be persuasive, your manifesto will also need to make use of sound architectural evidence. You may draw on evidence from your own building or others relevant to your chosen era. Use the formal qualities of this architectural evidence to support your argument about how architecture should function in society
Format:
The manifesto should be 1000 words long.
no sources are needed.
Please write a 1000-word architecture manifesto on the Plaza Hotel. Please be specific about the building and
go into detail about the design of the Plaza Hotel. Probably write from the architect’s perspective.

How might your design of a space be impacted by the presence of security monitoring system?

CDesign solutions for spaces often affect and are impacted by building control systems for:
1. energy (such as thermostats, lighting occupancy sensors and daylight sensors located in spaces) and,
2. security (such as card readers and magnetic locks at doors and security cameras in corridors);
The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate that you understand that your design of a space can both affect building systems (helping or hurting their ability to work properly) as well as be impacted by their presence (requiring planning/coordinating).
Assignment: Answer the following four writing prompts with a brief response. Provide one to three sentence answers for each.
1. How might your design of a space either help or hurt an energy monitoring and control system’s ability to work properly? Some examples of an energy monitoring system are a thermostat, a lighting occupancy sensor, and a daylight sensor. You can pick just one to write about.
2. How might your design of a space be impacted by the presence of an energy monitoring and control system? In other words, what design decisions would you need to plan for to include a thermostat, a lighting occupancy sensor, or a daylight sensor? You can pick just one to write about.
3. How might your design of a space either help or hurt a security monitoring and control system’s ability to work properly? Two examples of a security monitoring and control system are a card reader connected to a magnetic door lock and a security camera.
4. How might your design of a space be impacted by the presence of security monitoring system? ? In other words, what design decisions would you need to plan for to include a card reader connected to a magnetic door lock, or a security camera?
Assignment sheet is also attached in word document. So you can start writting there.

Why just those colors were used, how the choice depended on the orientation of the rooms in relation to windows

Building Report Instructions
Understanding architecture…. one must observe how it was designed for a special purpose and how it was
attuned to the entire concept and rhythm of a specific era. You must dwell in the rooms, feel how they close about
you, observe how you are naturally led from one to the other. You must be aware of the textural effects, discover
why just those colors were used, how the choice depended on the orientation of the rooms in relation to windows
and the sun…. You must experience the great differences acoustics make in your conception of space: the way
sound acts in an enormous cathedral, with its echoes and long-toned reverberations, as compared to a small
paneled room well-padded with hangings, rugs and cushions.
Steen Eiler Rasmussen, Experiencing Architecture
Purpose: the purpose of the building report is to demonstrate your understanding of the design of a house
through observation and analysis, applying Rasmussen’s 10-point framework and architectural vocabulary used in
his book.
Rasmussen’s Framework (10 chapters / 10 topics / 150 words per topic)
1) basic observations
2) solids and cavities
3) effective contrast
4) surfaces/planes
5) scale and proportion
6) rhythm
7) texture
8) daylight
9) color
10) sound
Format: the 6-page building report (8 ½” x 11”) includes title/subtitle, descriptive text, images, quotations,
citations, and figure identification. Margins: 1” all around; Font Style: Arial; Font Size: Title/subtitle: 12pt bold, Text:
10pt regular; Alignment: left justified; Line Spacing: Single
Title/Subtitle: Add to the given title of your house a colon (:) and subtitle of your choosing
Descriptive Text: the written part of the building report should demonstrate your understanding of the house
you’re observing. The text is “your writing”. The text should demonstrate:
– an application of the ten (10) topics of Rasmussen’s framework in describing the house
– a reflection of the design of the house in relation to local society and culture (city, region, country)
– an understanding that your perspective of the design of the house may be different than others
Images: include 10 images of your house, exterior and interior (photos, diagrams, drawings, renderings); embed
the images within the body of the text of your building report.
Quotations: include three (3) quotations by the architect, or from someone writing about the house or architect;
most architects have websites, and one can often extract quotations from their ‘about’ or ‘projects’ tab.
Citations: cite the online “source” of your three (3) quotations on the last page; citation is required when quoting,
paraphrasing, or using the ideas (images, photos, etc.) or words “of others”. A sample citation is:
Author, A. (year).
www.webpageaddress
Figure Identification: include figure identification (Fig. x) for each image, drawing, sketch and or diagram of your
house; organize numerically from beginning to end.
Evaluation: the rubric for evaluation is:
– ability to apply the basic ‘forms of discourse’ specific to architecture (using Rasmussen’s framework)
– ability to demonstrate an understanding of how your house shapes, reflects, and critiques society
– ability to demonstrate how diverse perspectives or points of view might respond to the design or reception
of
your house differently
