Using Grammars to Trace Architectural Hybridity in American Modernism The case of William Hajjar single-family house

Hadighi, Mahyar; Duarte, Jose;

Article:

In this paper, mid-century modern single-family houses designed by WilliamHajjar are analyzed through a shape grammar methodology within the context ofthe traditional architecture of an American college town. A member of thearchitecture faculty at the Pennsylvania State University, Hajjar was apractitioner in State College, PA, where the University Park campus is located,and an influential figure in the history of architecture in the area. The residentialarchitecture he designed for and built in the area incorporates many of the formaland functional features typical of both modern European architecture andtraditional American architecture. Based on a computational methodology, thisstudy offers an investigation into this hybridity phenomenon by exploring Hajjar'sarchitecture in relation to the traditional American architecture prevalent in thecollege town of State College.
