title Local Adaptation of Modern Architecture - A Grammar for Hajjar’s Domestic Architecture
source Odysseas Kontovourkis (ed.), Sustainable Computational Workflows [6th eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings / ISBN 9789491207143], Department of Architecture, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 24-25 May 2018, pp. 15-20
keywords The purpose of this study is to analyze Abraham William Hajjar's single-family houses in State College, PA, using shape grammar as a computational design methodology. Hajjar was a member of the architecture faculty at the Pennsylvania State College (now The Pennsylvania State University), a practitioner in State College and an influential figure in the history of architecture in the area. Shape grammars are used specifically to verify and describe the influences of modern architecture as defined by Hitchcock and Johnson (1932) and traditional American architecture in the area on Hajjar's domestic architecture. The underlying hypothesis is that the work of Hajjar is the result of a hybridity phenomenon that will be traced through a computational design methodology. The first step in this endeavor is to establish the single-family architectural language of Hajjar, which is briefly described in this paper. Future steps will aim at verifying and describing the hybridity between modern architecture and traditional architecture in his work by comparing Hajjar's grammar with grammars encoding modern and traditional architecture.

title Adapting Modern Architecture to a Local Context - A Grammar for Hajjar’s Hybrid Domestic Architecture
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 515-524
summary The purpose of this study is to analyze Abraham William Hajjar's single-family houses in State College, PA, using shape grammar as a computational design methodology. Hajjar was a member of the architecture faculty at the Pennsylvania State College (now The Pennsylvania State University), a practitioner in State College, and an influential figure in the history of architecture in the area. In this study, shape grammars are used specifically to verify and describe influences of modern architecture, as defined by Hitchcock and Johnson (1932), and influences of local traditional American architecture on Hajjar's domestic architecture. The underlying hypothesis is that Hajjar's work is the result of a hybridity phenomenon that can be traced through a computational design methodology. The first step in this endeavor and the study focus is to establish Hajjar's single-family architectural language. Future work will be concerned with verifying and describing the hybridity between modern architecture and traditional architecture expressed in Hajjar's work by comparing his grammar with grammars underlying modern and traditional architecture likewise.

title Modernity and School Architecture of the Thirties in France. A Complex Parenthesis of Progress and Hope Today Vanished
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.177-185
summary From the analysis of the project of preservation and rehabilitation of the “groupe scolaire” Karl Marx (1932) in Villejuif designed by André Lurçat, it was possible to bring into light the existence of a corpus of homogenous constructions, which unfortunately did not receive a fair recognition until today. It consists in a group of elementary schools – nursery and primary – designed and built during the 1929 -1939 decade, located in close Paris’ suburb, and among which most of them keep their original purpose today. Regrettably, their vicissitudes altered their image and actual perception, and consequently their meaning escapes us, their importance, what they can communicate to us as testimonies of a period of strong ideological conflicts, where the claimed modernity of these buildings seemed to announce the freeing of the man from class struggle. The aims of this study are to question about the value of this heritage, to try to bring out its meaning and to envision which would be the mechanisms that should allow modifying its actual blurred and wrong perception.
