title Using Grammars to Trace Architectural Hybridity in American Modernism - The case of William Hajjar single-family house
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 1, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 529-540
summary In this paper, mid-century modern single-family houses designed by William Hajjar are analyzed through a shape grammar methodology within the context of the traditional architecture of an American college town. A member of the architecture faculty at the Pennsylvania State University, Hajjar was a practitioner in State College, PA, where the University Park campus is located, and an influential figure in the history of architecture in the area. The residential architecture he designed for and built in the area incorporates many of the formal and functional features typical of both modern European architecture and traditional American architecture. Based on a computational methodology, this study offers an investigation into this hybridity phenomenon by exploring Hajjar's architecture in relation to the traditional American architecture prevalent in the college town of State College.
