Title: Conveying meaning through architecture
Author: Shook, Kenneth A.
Abstract: Architecture can be designed to convey a specif c meaning . Architecture throughout history has embodied meaning of such things as religion , society , nature , economy or the power structure of the day . Architecture communicates to people overt and hidden meaning in a variety of ways . Research into the theories of this topic will be carried out by examining three clearly distinct projects in depth to identify ways in which architecture can be meaningful . Following the analysis of the first part of the thesis , the findings will be tested in a design project , a "Center for Freedom of Speech ." The design will make use of the strategies for being meaningful identified in the research . The building will include a museum , a research center , a library of banned books , and a memorial . The site is located on Miami University's Western College campus in Oxford , Ohio . This campus served as the training center for the "Freedom Riders" during the Civil Rights Movement .
