Co-designing: An ethnographic method for practice
Applying co-design methods as a form of design ethnography serves as a means to collect multiple layers of data that designers can then employ for design inquiry and design solutions.
Color and Reflectivity in Interior Spaces
This research paper focuses on the connection between daylight, color, and color reflectivity in interior spaces.
Community Engagement: Learning from the Design Studio, Fostering Paths Toward Meaningful Collaboration
This presentation will highlight a series of projects faculty have developed that explore various scales and levels of involvement; from a one day design charette, to semester long projects that explore various social and environmental issues.
Community-Based Interior Design Matters: Co-Educating the Next Generation of Designers With the Community
Students in a CIDA-accredited interior architecture program engage a number of community partners in projects through a fourth year capstone design studio.
Connecting Millennials with Clients: Examples from Studio projects
Students learn how to effectively communicate with clients through appropriate systems of inquiry and use of technology, disproving the concept that Millennials don't know how to communicate.
Content as Pedagogy: Recharging Learning for a Sustainable Future
This paper explores a method for choreographing course content with significant learning, nurturing life-long environmental stewardship and new habits of thinking as a means to affect positive change.
Creating an Interior Space: A Design Studio Integrating Parametric Modeling with Human-Interactive Design
This paper examines how parametric modeling techniques can be integrated into in the conceptual stage of the interior-design process, and offers some pedagogical suggestions for cultivating students’ proficiency in parametric design. The project is executed in four parts: inspiration through nature, parametric modeling theory, human interaction, and presentation. First, students examine mathematical analyses of naturally occurring geometric designs, which helps them understand the basic concepts of parametric theory. Rooted in their inspiration from nature, students then sketch out a basic pavilion design using a coordinated parametric formula. The students can explore this parametric design either though physical modeling or with the aid of 3D-modeling software such as Rhino/Grasshopper. Once the basic form is developed, students then gather data about how people might interact in such an indoor public space using observation research methods. The most significant outcome of this project is to demonstrate that parametric modeling is not only useful for form-generation and fabrication, but can also be a valuable tool to inform human-interactive interior design solutions. The project supports a process that builds students’ 3D-modeling skills, graphic design and presentation skills, and a broad conceptual understanding of form-generation in interior design.
Cultivating Place : Design Thinking and Practice Rooted in a Campus Community Garden
Aimed at revitalizing a campus community garden, this one-year project explored physical, ecological, and socio-cultural sustainability through campus engagement and a participatory process, leveraging synergies between interior design and agriculture.
Design for collaborative learning: The shifting ground of campus building design
This is an exploratory case study on how physical design aspects of formal and informal collaboration areas in university campus buildings support or hinder collaborative learning.
Design History, CIDA Standards, and NCIDQ Examination: Rethinking Educational Priorities Amidst Global Destruction of Cultural Heritage
Design History’s social and cultural roles in sustaining identities and protecting heritages amidst global destruction of sites, properties, and objects.
Design process rubrics: Identifying and enhancing critical thinking in creative problem solving.
This presentation focuses on the adaptation and development of critical thinking rubrics for interior design education through rubric analysis and results of the Critical Thinking Assessment(CAT)test.
Design Thinking: Providing Opportunity for Underserved Communities within the Design Discipline
Research explores the absence of multiculturalism in design. Students of color enroll in art and design school at lower rates than their white peers. Arts education programs provide exposure to creative outlets and teach young students important life skills. Similarly, theories on design thinking show that complex skills are developed when students are asked to solving design problems. Programs geared toward low income teens of color provide a means for learning critical design skills that can be used outside the discipline and create a space within design for greater inclusion.
Designing for Protected Populations a Service Learning Experience for Interior Design Students
This presentation unveils the outcomes from of a service learning design charrette in which interior design students develop design concepts for a renovation of a local juvenile justice center’s library. The project was a collaborative effort among the School of Library and Information Studies, a nonprofit Environmental Design Group, and interior design students
Diagramming Spatial Intimacy: Mapping the Annunciation of Fra Angelico and Sandro Botticelli
Alberti’s 'Della pittura' of 1436 changed our cultural understanding of spatial intimacy as evidenced by the representation of interior space in Fra Angelico and Botticelli’s 'Annunciation' paintings.
Digitally Imprinting Craftsmanship: An Emotional Link Between Functional Design and Sculpture
A robotic arm stone carving process that uses handmade and digital technologies to transfer sewn three-dimensional fabric surfaces to sculpture.
Does Design Education Teach Students to See in a New Way? An Empirical Study Using Eye Tracking Technology
Eye tracking and advanced matrix analysis are used to study whether design students “read” architectural illustrations differently than non-design students.
Emotional Intelligence and the Interior Design Student
Emotional intelligence is an up and coming area research in many fields. Interior design education can benefit from enhanced understanding of interior design students in relation to emotional intelligence and how interior design may be a hot spot of high EI in comparison to other disciplines.
Environments for the impoverished: New psychological theories shape an opportunity [imperative?] for design research
New psychological findings reveal impoverished persons think differently than once believed—which may create fresh avenues for built environment research that can make a difference.
Digital fabrication invites greater autonomy in design and manufacturing decisions. It fosters emotional bonding and heightened responsibility for the products we choose to own.
Evaluating Living and Learning on Campus: Beyond Twin Beds and Communal Showers
Strategically assess the investments made to living and learning environments and its impact on students utilizing a post-occupancy evaluation process.
