DEFINING THE ZEITGEIST: A SEARCH FOR PROCESS IN ARCHITECTURE
KLECK, TYLER MATTHEW

2007, MARCH, University of Cincinnati, Design, Architecture, Art and Planning : Architecture (Master of).
If past ideologies such as modernism or neo-classicism were considered to be defendable, if not appropriate, academic responses to the social and architectural climate of their time then there must be a different way to respond to this climate in the current age. The aim of this thesis is to question the role of past architectural methods in the present day, and to investigate a more appropriate method from which architectural form(s) can be derived. Through studying the work of many leading architects and theoreticians there will be an attempt to uncover an architecture that engrosses itself in the authentic reality of its current time by shedding conventional architectural processes/ideologies that value universal truth for those that value contextually distinctive influences. The result of these investigations will be the proposal of a school of design for the city of Cincinnati that promotes the creative spirit, symbolizes its community, and submerges itself within the idiosyncrasies of its environment through the implementation of a more apposite architectural process.
