A Case Study Examining LED Lighting Compared to Fluorescent Lighting on Child Engagement Behaviors in a Pre-K Classroom
An investigation into child engagement behaviors in a classroom lit with LED lighting compared to the same classroom lit with fluorescent lighting.
A Case Study Exploring the Daily Learning Environment Experiences of a High School Student with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
This study examined learning environment preferences of a student with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Use of mobile surveys, interviews, and cognitive maps revealed nuances not fully examined in the literature.
A Dialogue of Form, Context and Effects : Engaging Tschumi through Intervention
This paper introduces the theoretical and design frameworks used the generation of an intervention into Bernard Tschumi’s ‘Red Generator’, exploring the production of form, material, surface, and effects.
A Pedagogical Approach: Guiding the Student Design of a Low Security Prison
This study explores the outcome of design pedagogy in a senior level, commercial interior design studio. It focuses on how the professor guided the use of evidence based design and research toward the student design solution
A Post-Occupancy Evaluation of Occupants satisfaction: A Case Study of Indoor Environmental Quality in Classroom Buildings
The authors present a comparison of indoor environmental quality (IEQ) in four classroom buildings to highlight their impact on occupants’ health and well-being.
A Studio Experience of Integrating Adaptive Systems and Data in Interactive Interior Design
This project used a studio experience to investigate the role of the interior designer in the new data-rich technological context. This paper presents an overview of several areas in which interior design is being influenced by contemporary data systems, and demonstrates the way in which such approaches to design can be integrated into pedagogical frameworks to help students explore their creative capacities.
A Synesthetic Approach to Creative Design Thinking – The Phenomenological Perspective on Multi-Sensory Spatial Experience
Based on Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s notion of human perception, this study explores a synesthetic approach that may inspire students’ creativity while promoting holistic, multi-sensory design thinking.
Acculturation to Global Consumer Culture Impact on Using Traditional Architectural Elements: A Preliminary Exploration.
Emerging architects and designers are being acculturated to the global consumer culture via the internet and during their college years when they learn about global architecture and modern architectural styles. Also, there is little research on the impact of global consumer culture on the use of traditional architectural elements. Therefore, this study is a preliminary investigation of how the level of acculturation of global consumer culture among architecture and interior design students and professional affects their beliefs for using global architectural elements over Jordanian traditional elements. A Pearson correlation was run to determine the relationship between Acculturation to global consumer culture and Beliefs of using global architectural elements over Jordanian traditional elements. There was a moderate, positive correlation was found, which was statistically significant (r = .423, n = 55, p = .001). An overall conclusion can be drawn base on the available result that there is an impact of the acculturation to global consumer culture on the beliefs and preferences of using global architectural elements over traditional ones. If this attitude toward local and traditional architecture keeps fluctuating will lead to a loss in the local identity. Jordan in this study is one case of many other cases that needs to be studied and analyzed further.
An Empirical Study of the Relationship Among Self-Regulation, Creative Self-Efficacy, and Product Creativity in Interior Design Performance
The purpose of this study is to examine (a) how one's self-regulation relates to his/her creativity in both creative self-efficacy and self-assessed product creativity, and (b) how novice and advanced students show similarities or differences in such relationship.
An Interdisciplinary Design Build Installation for a Landmark Shoe Museum
The concept of topography combined with digital fabrication informed the conceptual approach for a design-build installation to celebrate a shoe museum’s twentieth anniversary.
Are Unpaid Internships Discriminatory?
Unpaid internships make up 50% of internships offered. The debate concerning payment has broadened to include dialog that unpaid internships might be discriminatory.
Art(ing) + Curating + Designing : Toward the Collaborative Creation of Art Exhibition
In this poster presentation, I propose a process for collaborative creation using computer software that may stimulate active collaboration among artists, curators, and interior designers focusing on exhibition design for art museums and galleries.
AuralSurface: Designing A Responsive Surface for Educational Multi-Use Spaces
AuralSurface seeks to reduce fatigue and distraction in educational spaces by controlling ambient noise disturbances. Its design allows it to autonomously deploy an acoustic material at specific locations when the perceived decibel levels are higher than normal.
Beyond the Noise: tackling the meaning of noise and speech privacy among knowledge workers in the open office environment
This study examines the effects of noise and sound privacy on job satisfaction, performance, and health among knowledge workers using self-reports and social sensing badges.
BIM, Visualization, and VR, Oh My! Aligning Professional Technologies with Academic Rigor by Implementing BIM and Virtual Reality into a Lower Level Design and Construction Technology Course
Presentation will discuss a project that implements BIM and related software, coupled with Virtual Reality technologies, to initiate self-guided inquiries and interdisciplinary collaboration.
Biophilic design considerations for creating a restorative life care community (Adapting patterns of biophilia in senior housing for reducing stress)
Biophilic design interventions are suggested to have restorative effects and reduce elderly stress. This study explores Biophilic design interventions and applies them to an actual senior living common space.
Located in the rapidly transitioning Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago, this extensive reworking of a recently completed spec. house combines a quiet urbanity with intimate spaces, unexpected moments, and highly refined detail. Without moving a single structural wall or modifying any fenestration, we radically changed the relationship and character of spaces through an emphasis on custom millwork, furniture (custom-designed by the architects as well as commercial selections), nuanced lighting, and an extensive art program. White Oak paneling and cabinet walls dominate the public areas and create cohesiveness from space to space. Cleverly hidden storage and infrastructure sit behind the wood walls while hot-rolled steel animates fireplaces, niches, and shelving. White walls and white furniture with red accents fill the Oak-defined rooms. Certain rooms deviate completely from the White Oak and white paint regime through the use of selective colors and materials. Decks on 4 levels and pocket gardens provide outdoor spaces with city views or intimate spaces for contemplation. Garapa wood, stained to match the interior White Oak, creates the appearance of continuity between inside and outside. The result is a carefully orchestrated sequence of living spaces and curated art that respond directly to the personalities of the inhabitants.
Café Society: private practice, public space
Cafés of Paris, Vienna and Milan have historical relevance in terms of visual and social culture. This presentation will consider that history along with analysis of contemporary New Haven in regard to space, form and practice.
Case-control study of perceived environmental hazards associated with residents’ fall risks within senior independent living
The main purpose of this research was to identify locations and types of perceived environmental hazards increasing the risk of falling. Using a case-control study approach, the core contribution of this research is to understand the interaction between perceived environmental hazards and fall risks as well as differences in environmental hazards based on age and health issues. The research findings provide critical information which is helpful for developing fall prevention design strategy.
CHALLENGING DISCIPLINARY COMFORT ZONES: A STUDY ABROAD STUDIO
The session will discuss an inter-disciplinary studio where students worked outside of disciplinary comfort zones to achieve effective collaboration, inventive solutions and parity between disciplines
