dc.description.abstract One of the most important issues for architects practicing in the post-Modern era concerns how we deal with our past. Of primary concern are monuments and memorials, which are intended as significant cultural markers yet often do not survive the era which created them. These structures provide an opportunity to develop a critical dialogue between a community's past and future through their transformation, honoring the memory which they were built to embody. The writings of contemporary architectural theorists provide the basis for understanding the dramatic displacement of the monumental language during the Modern Movement. In addition, works by Edward Hopper, Walker Evans, J. B. Jackson, and H. L. Mencken provide valuable insights on the American city. The thesis design project involves the transformation of Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland to include program elements which reinforce the community and the structure's original conception as a memorial to the World War dead.
