The purpose of this study is to (a) understand the color perception of color-blind people and analyze the differences in color vision between people with color blindness and people without color blindness and (b) propose proper color scheme designs that are easily seen by color-blind people and are aesthetically pleasing.
Historical context and incremental construction methods influenced the design of a vacation house. Traditional interior elements are transformed into a modern vernacular interior through manipulation of scale, composition and layout.
The design of beautiful vernacular artifacts is a testament to the gracious spirit of the Japanese Americans who were incarcerated in internment camps during World War II. This presentation focuses on the design and construction of handmade furniture in Minidoka.

The goal is to explore trends of research in the profession and its influence on education. With a base-line understanding past researches, future researcher will be able to streamline their efforts to explore the less-investigated topics.
In this presentation, I would like to discuss international program that we launched in the Summer of 2015. It was designed for graduate students that are striving to get global perspective on the current economic developments in the world and position themselves in the global market. This program took place in Spain and was conducted in collaboration with faculties from one of the premier Architectural Schools in Madrid. This two courses 6 credits program included seminar on contemporary Spanish architecture and design studio. The goal of this program was to combine theoretical base with practical implementation of design strategies that were discovered during seminars and site visits. I will share evolution of student research and design processes as well as teaching methodologies that were used during project development and prompted students to take their research to the next level that tests the assumption that creative work and these who undertake it prosper far more in environments that appear a little un-designed or unfinished. To summarize, this program allowed students: To analyze economic situation in Spain Conduct research and develop theoretical base for their designs Create designs and utilize materials that address current economic conditions in the country This program concluded with the public exhibit that showcased projects and student research papers as an outcome of this international collaboration.
This design thinking exercise establishes how one can introduce prospective design students to creative problem-solving while addressing the design of the built environment in 90 minutes. The project was crafted to simulate the design studio experience, from the introduction of core concepts of body, space, and experience; to those of ideation, prototyping, testing and presentation.

The content presented in this poster builds upon Konkel’s initial research question, “How are design educators employing build-to-learn strategies in interior design curricula?” (p. 5). The project highlights a design-build experience (design and construction via a single source) involving multiple disciplines, professional consultants and a complex client make-up. The work spans two regular term semesters (spring 2016 and fall 2016) at a public research university.

As Autism Spectrum Disorder is on the rise, it is important to take a look at how designers can create environments that lead to success and alleviate stress for those living with ASD. Using research, a list of design elements to be used has been created as well as a layout of a well functioning house for an individual on the Autism Spectrum scale.
For this poster session, design ideas for cancer treatment facilities will be critiqued based on the current literature albeit lacking. A case consisting of a 52-year old, female breast-cancer survivor will provide additional insight and critique of the design ideas, and future research questions will be generated.
From their learning experiences in a paired set of creativity courses, a total 85 first-year-in-college students showed high levels of creative confidence and a significant growth in creative personal identity at the end of the courses. The results of this research call for additional research and application of how to cultivate creativity and design thinking to deliberately improve student development in the field of interior design.
This is a discussion of designer’s ethics that includes issues of morality, faith, and social justice intended to expand our conversation about the ethical responsibility of designers beyond the health, safety, and welfare of the public.
