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

Write one or two sentences for each paragraph

1. Working Title
publish a working title for your paper, which should include the name of the selected work of architecture.
2. Abstract
Write a 250- to 350-word abstract, including a brief introduction, an identification of your chosen topic,
and a thesis statement. Underline your thesis statement to emphasize it within the abstract.
3. Paragraph Outline
Produce an outline that highlights the topic / content of each paragraph. The outline should have at least
5 paragraphs, but will likely have more due to the required length of the paper. The paper must include
an introduction paragraph and a concluding paragraph. Write one or two sentences for each paragraph
outlined to communicate the focus and what will be discussed.
4. Anticipated Sources
Produce a list of the sources you plan to utilize in writing the paper. These sources should be provided in
a bibliography format using Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition. A minimum of 6 scholarly sources is
required. The course textbook and lectures can be used as sources for the paper, but they do not count
toward the minimum number of required sources.
Additional Guidance for Producing the Outline
Thesis Statement
A strong thesis statement is key to the writing of a successful academic paper. Typically placed at the
10/31/22, 4:24 PM Paper 2 Outline
https://ufl.instructure.com/courses/463685/assignments/5305391 2/3
end of the first paragraph, the thesis statement should be specific, state your argument, and layout what
will be covered in the body of the paper.
For example, two thesis statements are provided below discussing Frank Lloyd Wright, a well-known
American Architect. (Note: the examples below do not align with the topic for Paper 1, they are provided
as general guidance.)
Frank Lloyd Wright was the best architect who ever lived in America and changed residential
architecture forever with his passion and dedication. (WEAK THESIS)
A staunch proponent of neo-vernacular architecture in the early 20th century, Architect Frank Lloyd
Wright impacted the residential American landscape through his critical writings, built works, and
pedagogic apprenticeship program. (STRONG THESIS)
The second example is stronger than the first because it communicates:
a specific scope or focus for the paper (Wright is the focus)
takes a position (Wright impacted the residential American landscape)
outlines three examples / sources to prove the position (critical writings, built works, and pedagogic
apprenticeship program)
Uses keywords and terms from the discipline that bring additional clarity, focus, and specificity
Paragraph Outline
Using the thesis statement as a guide, the paragraph outline should communicate how the content of the
paper will be organized. The introduction paragraph should include the thesis statement. Each body
paragraph should have a clear idea, which points back to the thesis statement, and includes evidence to
support your idea. Be as specific as possible, with focus and clarity.
To plan for the content and organization of each body paragraph, it’s helpful to review a typical outline
for each body paragraph, sentence by sentence.
1. Body Paragraph Topic Sentence: Expresses the main idea of a paragraph
2. Supporting Sentence: Sub-points that further explain and/or develop the main idea; Aim for 1 – 3
supporting sentences per paragraph.
3. Detailing Sentences: Concrete examples, research, case studies, etc. that prove your supports; Aim
for 1 -3 detailing sentences for every supporting sentence.
4. Concluding Sentence: Brings paragraph to closure; also often transitions to the next paragraph.

Assignment.

Within architectural history, works are classified into periods, each with notable and distinct
characteristics. For Paper 2, select a period of architecture from the following list and one example work
of architecture from this period. Draw connections between the period and the work of architecture,
investigating the period’s origin, time frame, design approach, notable characteristics, etc. Investigate
the specifics of the work of architecture, such as form, materials, details, construction, assembly, etc,
exploring its alignment or contrast to typical works from the period. Consider the architect’s / designer’s
role or relationship to the period and the impact of the period on the architect’s work.
Periods of architecture you can choose from: Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Rococo, Art
Nouveau, Modern.
Note: “Modern” is a distinct period of architecture with a starting point and ending point in history. Many
students confuse “Modern” with contemporary architecture, which describes the architecture of our
current times.
Assignment
Choose one work of architecture covered in the course, either in lectures or the textbook. Write a 2,500-
word paper that studies and interprets the work of architecture according to the topic. To understand and
interpret the work of architecture, students should utilize a range of sources and materials, such as:
photographs; written history; interviews; design and construction documents; material sources and
selections; and more.
The paper should be a holistic interpretation of the work of architecture, investigating a range of internal
and external factors. The paper SHOULD NOT be a research report or book report, which is focused on
the recounting of facts or is solely describing the work of architecture. This paper SHOULD BE an
interpretation of the information students discover about the work of architecture and the thesis
statement should clearly articulate the unique position that will be explored in the paper. Analysis and
synthesis of research is required to produce a paper that satisfies this assignment.
The paper must include a thesis statement, which states this unique position and guides the
organization of the paper. This thesis statement communicates the ‘big idea’ for the paper to the reader
and is backed up by evidence / research. This assignment challenges you to interpret the work of
architecture for yourself. What are your ideas about the work of architecture in relationship to the topic?
10/31/22, 4:23 PM Paper 2
https://ufl.instructure.com/courses/463685/assignments/5305390 2/7
Additional guidance about formulating this thesis statement is offered in the “Paper 2 Outline”
assignment.
Additional Guidance for Producing the Paper
Conduct some initial research to identify works you might be interested in. You may select a work from
any portion of the course, even if we haven’t covered it by the time the paper is due. Be sure there are
ample resources available to you to produce a paper of this length. Do not overlook sources which may
be focused on the architect, time period, etc, rather than the individual work of architecture. A minimum
of 6 scholarly sources is required. Remember: This paper requires significant effort and time on your
part, so be sure to select a paper topic that interests you and you desire to learn more about.
In your research and interpretation, the physical characteristics of the work of architecture are likely to
stand out to you, as these are easily seen and assessed in photos and drawings. In addition to the
physical, don’t overlook the range of intangible factors that guided the creation of the architectural work.
For example, the specific preferences of the architect, the financial budget available, and the time
period.
In the writing of the paper, be sure to use a more formal academic style of writing. While you’ll be
communicating your ideas and conclusions, you should not use first person statements using “I”, “me”,
or “my”. You should write from a third person point of view.
Resources for Paper Writing
The UF Writing Studio is a free service for current UF graduate and undergraduate students. Students
have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a consultant on issues specific to their own particular
development. Appointments can be made on their website for virtual consultations
(https://writing.ufl.edu/writing-studio/). These consultations are especially helpful to students who may
need assistance with developing a thesis, using research to back up the position taken in the thesis, and
organizing their thoughts / content within the paper.
Detailed Paper Requirements
Note the detailed requirements outlined below. Points will be deducted for not following the prescribed
format, citation style, etc.
General
– 2,500 (minimum) word count.
– The paper must follow Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition.
– Use New Times Roman font, 12 point, single-spaced, with all margins set to one inch (1”).
Word Count
The paper must be a minimum of 2,500 words. Microsoft Word will be used to confirm the word count.
The word count does not include footnotes, captions, and bibliography. Students can use the abstract
text they authored for Paper Outline 2, but it must be incorporated into the paper text to contribute to the
10/31/22, 4:23 PM Paper 2
https://ufl.instructure.com/courses/463685/assignments/5305390 3/7
minimum word count. The abstract SHOULD NOT be included as a separate section before the final
paper, as in this case, it would not contribute to the word count.
Cover Page
Create a cover page that includes:
– Title of Paper
– Student’s Name
– Course and Section Number, Semester and Year
– Word Count
Images
The paper should include a minimum of 5 images. Select images that enhance or illustrate the ideas you
are discussing. Each image should be clearly labeled, have a caption, and the source be clearly cited in
the footnotes at the bottom of the page. For example: “Figure 1: The north façade clearly features the
library entrance and the intricate Art Deco details. “ The image label (ie. Figure 1) should be referred in
the body of the paper to connect the paper text and images.
The images should be included on their own pages after the paper text and before the bibliography.
Note: The images and their captions do not contribute towards or reduce the word count.
Citations + Citation Style
Use Chicago Style 17th edition for footnotes (embedded at the bottom of each page) and a bibliography
(at the conclusion of the paper). The Purdue Owl is a great source for citation information and guidance.
For Chicago Style citations, note that the bibliography format is slightly different from the footnote format.
Required Sources (6 minimum)
– A minimum of 6 scholarly sources is required. The course textbook and lectures can be used as
sources for the paper, but they do not count toward the minimum number of sources.
– Research for this paper should come from a variety of scholarly sources. Consider: books; journal
articles; videos / documentaries; interviews; design and construction documents; and academically
recognized web sources.
– Do not use Wikipedia or similar Wiki encyclopedia-like pages. These sources can be edited at any time
by users and their information is not verified.
