Project #89307 - Survey of Architecture

You are to write a 6000 word (minimum) paper on an Architect (Eric Owen Moss). The paper must be written in Chicago Style 16 which includes footnotes and a bibliography. While meeting all standards for research and citations, this paper requires innovative thinking and creative writing.

My overall view of the paper includes the following:

The architect I will be focusing my paper on is Eric Owen Moss. Regarded as one of the most influential architects of his time, Moss has gone on to create multiple unique designs and intricate visions throughout California.  His architectural creations have had such a drastic impact on the community just west of Los Angeles, known as Culver City. Moss has done more than just create buildings, he used his innovative ideas to help uplift a city and that is part of the reason why I chose to focus my paper on him. He has a story behind his craft and I believe that his work embodies many more aspects. Moss’s impressive designs should be further discussed because they represent our time: glass arrangements that look fatal, misconstrued metal, concrete resembling unstable permanent mass, and an unsystematic tone of wood.  

A few of Moss’s designs that I will like to discuss include: the Samitaur Tower, the Stealth, IRS, 3535 Hayden, Umbrella, the Box, Samitaur, and the Pterodactyl. All of those designs contributed to the rise in urban development in Culver City, an area that was once lacking in terms of urbanism. In addition, I will also talk about the significance of urbanism and how Moss impacted urbanism in society with his architecture. Likewise, Moss’s collaboration with visionaries Frederick and Laurie Smith was an important aspect for the growth of Culver City and it should not be overlooked as I will discuss it in further detail. Moreover, since Culver was once a thriving location that essentially fell from grace, I will provide the history of the town and all that it embodies. Ultimately, my paper will address how the architectural designs of Eric Moss influenced Culver City and the idea of urbanism. 

 

Format

Use Arial font, 12 point, double-spaced, with 1” on all margins.

 

Citation Style

Use Chicago Style 16 footnotes and a bibliography. The footnotes and bibliography do not count toward the 6000 word count. More information on Chicago Style 16 can be accessed at The Chicago Style Manual through Purdue OWL and at Fairfield University. 

 

Sources

You are required to use at least 10 sources total for the 6000 word paper. Information for this paper should come from a variety of sources. You are encouraged to use books, videos, interviews, documentaries and academically recognized scholarly web sources in order to develop your own "big idea" that will clearly articulate an organized set of ideas about the architect you have chosen. Web sources may be used, but must not exceed 10% of total sources. Online journals and publications that are accessed through the UF Libraries Databases will not be considered part of this 10% rule. Do not use Wikipedia as a source as it is unverifiable and can be edited at any time. To begin your search for scholarly sources, please visit the AFA Library page. Also, consult "Key Databases and Resources". 

Here is the basic format for a footnote citation from the Purdue OWL:

1. Firstname Lastname, Title of Book (Place of publication: Publisher, Year of publication), page number.

For example: (from Fairfield University)

1. Barbie Zelizer, Remembering to Forget: Holocaust Memory through the Camera's Eye (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2003), 7.

Title of Paper

Student’s Name

Course and Section Number

Word Count: not including footnotes cover page or bibliography

 

Bibliography

Please include a Bibliography for your sources. Note that the Bibliography format is slightly different from the footnote format, as it is alphabetized by last name. Here is the basic format from the Purdue OWL:

Lastname, Firstname. Title of Book. Place of publication: Publisher, Year of

publication.

For example: (from Fairfield University)

Zelizer, Barbie. Remembering to Forget: Holocaust Memory through

the Camera's Eye. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2003.

 

Images

Images are not required. You may use images that enhance or illustrate an idea, but remember – the word count still needs to equal 6000 words regardless of the page count. If you use images to strengthen your content, always give proper credit. Online sources for images are acceptable and will not count toward the 10% rule. Provide credit for the images you used in a caption under the image or at the end of the paper after the Bibliography in this format. Do not include these sources in your Bibliography – use a separate page.
