By focusing on thefacades, even though many times portrayed simplicity through color and motifs, therewhere very intricate decorative features on the exterior, including spiritual, geometrical,and/or cultural motifs. For example, the entry at the Nunnery, Uxmal in Yucatan, Mexicohas very intricate motifs that portray spiritual meanings. The people that lived in thisarea believed in the God of Rain, so a big purpose of the city with in the Nunnery was tostore rain water, as it was sacred and a source for life (Harwood,, 2011). With this beliefin mind, you can see the emphasis of the God of Rain through out the facades of thebuildings and entry, which gives not only depth but texture (Harwood, 2011).Nevertheless, while spiritual motifs were very important to portray on facades, theNunnery also had many geometric motifs through out its buildings facades emphasizeunity through contrast by using more simple lines and shapes.According to a source from Bluftton University, the East building of the Nunneryhad many “triangular and lattice patterns” (Sullivan, 2004). The same source states thatthe West building included “fret motifs and was a lot longer than its opposite side”(Sullivan, 2004); therefore, creating an imperfect proportion of a square (Sullivan,2004). The frieze of Nunnery included many different types of motifs on its façade likefeathered serpents, combination of geometric simplicity and intricate spiritual motifs, thedesign of the Nunnery created a well balanced and rhythmic portrayal of its culture.

Regional Administrator

In June of 2016, the EPA settled a court case with Yuengling to the tune of $3M for violations to under the Clean Water Act. “Yuengling is responsible for serious violations of its Clean Water Act pretreatment discharge limits, posing a potential risk to the Schuylkill River which provides drinking water to 1.5 million people,” EPA Regional Administrator Shawn Garvin said in a news release. “This history of violations and failure to fully respond to orders from the Greater Pottsville Area Sewer Authority and EPA to correct the problems resulted in this enforcement action.” What is especially important to note is that “The EPA said Yuengling violated Clean Water Act requirements at least 141 times between 2008 and 2015.” In other words, violations continued for 9 years before the company was penalized. This is one example of an ongoing debate regarding the effectiveness of our environmental regulations if the process cannot move quicker to stop the continued damage to the environment.An article outlining the case specifics as well as a supporting article titled “Clean water advocate says cases, like Yuengling’s, take too long” . After reading the specifics on this case, research similar cases and/or argumentative opinion papers regarding the issue of slow turnaround on prosecution under Clean Water Act violations. Post your thoughts and arguments regarding this issue; for example, what are the leading causes for the delay? Do you believe the delay hinders the effectiveness of the regulations? What steps could be done to speed up the process?

Twentieth Century Architecture

Research Paper: Architectural Historiography in the 20?th ?Centuryhistoriography is the writing of history, as well as the process by which historians analyze and interpret historical evidence. Therefore, the writing of history is, by nature, interpretive, and as such it is highly influenced by the author-historian’s agenda, bias, cultural context, research method, knowledge (or ignorance) of source material, selective editing, etc. To this end, for this research project you will choose a subject relevant to twentieth century architecture, and you will compare/contrast various historians’ interpretations of this subject.First, you will choose one architect, event, movement, period or theory relevant to twentieth century architecture. Some possible topics might include: the Deutscher Werkbund, the Case Study House Program, Japanese Metabolism, the Bauhaus under Hannes Meyer, the New York Five, the 1932 exhibit at the MoMA entitled “The International Style”, Mies van der Rohe’s work at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Rem Koolhaas in the 1970s, etc. If you choose to focus on the work of one architect, you should narrow your research down to an important period in that architect’s life (e.g. Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s), or a specific theory developed by that architect (e.g. Louis Sullivan’s brand of Rationalism). Your task is NOT to report on the building, architect or event, but rather to compare/contrast various historiographic interpretations of it.You will consult a minimum of five historiographic accounts of the topic (see the list of examples of historiographic accounts below), from different author-historians who express different viewpoints. As you read and reflect on these accounts, you should ask yourself• ?What evidence does each historian cite, and what evidence does each historian leave out? Why? How does this decision influence this historian’s narrative of the topic?• ?How does each author-historian use and interpret the evidence? • ?What distinct conclusions has each historian drawn about this subject? • ?How do these conclusions differ? How are they similar?• ?How does each historiographic account reveal the historians’ own bias and/or agenda? ?• ?How have perceptions of this subject been affected by the various historiographic accounts of it? ?• ?How does the author-historian contextualize the topic in the broader narrative of the history of twentieth century architecture?• ?In what ways does the author-historian’s account of this subject reveal her/his broader approach to the history of architecture?• ?How have historians affected our understanding of this topic?Topic ProposalAfter choosing a topic, list and analyze each account of the topic. List the similarities and differences that you discover between accounts (i.e. as listed above). Be specific. Then, conduct research on the author of each account to determine how they chose to include some information while excluding other information. Your proposal should also consider/discuss each author’s bias. I recommend that you organize this information in table format.Finally, write a thesis statement and 1-2 paragraphs that summarize(s) the overall trend, trajectory, etc. of the historiography of the subject. Do the authors fall into various “camps”? Do you notice an evolution over time in the ways this topic has been presented? Are some authors’ biases more evident than others?
