Frame = Structure The extreme climate of the Byway environment demands that structures be solid and sound without blemishing scenery or damaging sensitive local ecologies. The long legacy of strong, place-based architecture of the Rocky Mountain Province provides examples for the new Byway shelter. By combining historic forms and construction methods with current materials and aesthetics, the new Byway shelter evokes the past while forging a strong identity for the future. The result is a flexible, utilitarian structure that is simple to construct and timeless.

SITE MARKER (POINT)

Craftsmanship and local materials define the character of the Byway shelter. Walls are constructed of locally sourced stone, ideally from the site being developed, and stacked with mortar. As seen in the Side Elevation, larger stone provides a strong visual foundation for the back of the structure, gradually decreasing in mass to smaller stone, becoming more refined at the front of the structure. This alludes to the structure metaphorically growing from local geology, a human construct rising from Rocky Mountain bedrock. The roof is a simple plank created by one or more panels of metal or wood supported by metal or wooden joists. This simple roof structure pays homage to the rustic, visual construction methods of the Rocky Mountain Province.

SITE

The Byway structure functions on multiple levels as a shelter from sun or other inclement weather, a rest stop, a view finder, a medium for signage, and a unique expression of place. The simple and iconic form allows for flexibility in materials to express the specific natural and human history of a site. Future designers will find the form adaptable to all sites and, thus, inspire site-based creativity. Of course, conditions vary along the Byway and these differing conditions should be reflected in structures. The structure below is only one example of a sensitive and site-based WALL Byway (LINE) structure. There will undoubtedly be more variations, but they should always be rooted in Byway history, ecology and geology.

CITIZEN SCALE MASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE THESIS . UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA ABSTRACT The American government operates within structures and landscapes that impede democracy rather than facilitate it. This dysfunctional built environment opposes the ideals and inhibits the goals of democracy to the detriment of American citizens. Through an examination of historic government typologies and their built environments, this thesis asserts that political will manifests itself through built form and indicates government intention and ideology. Applied to the United States, this concept yields a critique of both the American democracy and its built environment, exposing an inconsistency between the two. The issues revolving around a modern redesign of the government built environment are contemporized through an exploration of political transparency, government security, digital media, and peak oil. In the end, design principles and applications are offered that seek to provide a method of realigning government ideals and built form to facilitate the American democracy.
