Enhancing Transition Spaces with the Simple Wayfinding Tools (Signage, Color and Brightness) for People with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Apoorva Rane, Dr. Kristi Gaines, March 2017
Today, accessibility codes and design guidelines include people with physical impairment whereas architectural guideline standards are still awaited for people intellectual or neurodevelopmental impairment. There is ample research happening on the educational environment and built-in environment for such population and still there is still no standardization of code. As there is a variety of population with intellectual impairment, tunnel vision for each of the impairments makes such population separated or gives them a feeling of being different. Therefore, this research-based design project concentrates on a common space for all population – transition space and wayfinding for the same and the research population is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Ethnographic strategies: framework for sensemaking and creative synthesis in design studio
Genell Ebbini, Kathleen Ryan, March 2017

Exploring in Community Outreach and Service Learning: Voluntary Design Charrette of Cambodian Community Center
Myoung Joo Chun, Miyoung Hong, March 2017
This poster presentation advocates for the use of charrette as an instructional method in design education to reinforce the socially responsible design through working with the actual clients in multidimensional needs. It also highlights students’ voluntary design charrette experience that develop the design solution through critical decision making process as a team. Students learn about the possibility of contribution for an unfamiliar community in need through their design research and collaborative efforts and about the professional design process from the schematic design and possibly to the construction outside of the classroom.

Fail Forward: Design from failure, design through failure, design for failure
Leah Scolere, Sheila Danko, March 2017
Failure in real life at the scale and complexity of space design is daunting yet failure is central to design learning and leadership. Drawing on three case studies, we conceptualize failure as a continuum of interactions that can be incorporated in studio education to help students experience failure, communicate failure, and think about the role of failure as a way forward. Overall, we found that micro-failings can lead to macro level success on real projects. Micro-failings that are examined, reflected on, and incorporated in the design process help ensure the strength of the idea and are a form of design research that can help build trust with clients.
