Visual Analysis And Design Proposal For The Bridges Organization Day Facility In Rockledge, Florida, Lesa N. Lorusso 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Visual Analysis And Design Proposal For The Bridges Organization Day Facility In Rockledge, Florida, Lesa N. Lorusso

Theses from the Architecture Program

The population by age of the client and staff at the Bridges Facility in Rockledge, Florida represent a microcosm of the population of Brevard County, Florida. The shared history of two non-profit organizations that began in in Brevard County, FL in the mid twentieth century is remarkable. NASA began in 1958, and the Bridges organization began in 1956. The historically significant American community of Brevard County, FL now faces the challenges of a new focus without the NASA space shuttle program and accommodating an increasingly aging population, while the similarly aged Bridges organization faces similar organizational and population challenges as ...


Information Technology Project Management Of The New College Of Education Facility At Western Kentucky University, Christopher Lee Roberts 2014 Western Kentucky University

Information Technology Project Management Of The New College Of Education Facility At Western Kentucky University, Christopher Lee Roberts

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Information Technology (IT) Project Management methodologies are numerous, often varying from organization to organization, and sometimes from project to project within the same organization. Although project type and scope can be a powerful indicator of what methodologies may work best for a given project, choosing which methodology to use can be daunting for project teams. At times, even after due diligence has been practiced to identify the management options available for a given project, there may not be a perfect fit. At such times, or when a formal methodology does not exist in an organization or project management office, the ...

Empowered Pursuit: A Reflective Essay On Using Creative Learning In The Syracuse City School District, Danielle Mae Lewis

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Within the Syracuse City School District, students have been struggling to thrive in an educational environment that focuses on standardization. In 2012, only 48% of high school seniors graduated with a high school diploma in the city of Syracuse. Numerous theories have been discussed as to why students have failed to succeed, with a large portion of these centered on the problems created by the No Child Left Behind Act.

This reflective essay constructs and deconstructs the research and conceptual work produced surrounding the topic of creative learning within the Syracuse City School District. Initial research, summarized in this paper ...


Inaccurate Restorations: Charles Mackintosh's Sauchiehall St. Willow Tea-Rooms, Ontario Caudill 2014 Iowa State University

Inaccurate Restorations: Charles Mackintosh's Sauchiehall St. Willow Tea-Rooms, Ontario Caudill

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

Charles Mackintosh designed among the most successful tea-rooms of the early twentieth century, in particular, the Willow Tea-Rooms in Glasgow, Scotland. Because of their ground-breaking modern forms and ornament, Mackintosh's designs for this building are still considered to be among the most important of the period. Unfortunately, Glasgow is failing its famed architect. This paper argues that three twentieth century interventions caused significant damage to Mackintosh's design, some of which are irreversible. They include, 1) transforming the Room de Luxe into a bridal shop for Daly's Department Store, 2) restoring the Room de Luxe as a tea ...

I can never stand still. I must explore and experiment. I am never satisfied with my work. I resent the limitations of my own imagination. — WALT DISNEY

Design Philosophy

A well-executed design is a unique expression of one’s personality and character shining throughout a space. The amount of creativity, simplicity and vast knowledge that goes into a design is something we pride ourselves on. However the more we learn the less certain we are that we know everything. Design is constantly evolving; we must never stop educating ourselves, if we do we are just creating more limitations to our ...

Throughout my four years of education and experience in the design world I’ve come to realize that the reason why I love design is because it can change people’s lives by improving the way they use space. My goal as a future designer is to create sustainable, functional and aesthetic spaces that perform for the people who work, visit and live in them. I love designing because it can make a difference.

With each brush stroke and step to get to the final product, form and function is a viable aspect in designing every space. To achieve this I believe one must work hard for what one does, as it reflects the outcome of their work.

Philosophy of Design

A space is an opportunity to express yourself with color, texture, pattern, and shape. It is my goal to create a space that meets my client’s vision and allows them to love their space more than they ever have. An Interior Designer is simply the phase between an idea and reality.

Reorientation: A Journey Through Spatial Sequence, Eman AlSulaimani 2014 Virginia Commonwealth University

Reorientation: A Journey Through Spatial Sequence, Eman Alsulaimani

Theses and Dissertations

Introduction | The building for this thesis project is one with a long history. Originally built as the First Baptist Church, it was converted over the years to fulfill a role completely different from its original intent; a student center! During this process and after a series of renovations, the Broad Street main grand entrance lost its place and the arrival into the building became much less choreographed. Essentially, over time one could say that this building had been flipped around, it has lost its original intent, grandeur and purpose. Hypothesis | I challenge the idea of flipping the building back to ...

The Classroom Paradigm: Design In A Technology-Driven Era, Candace Thompson

Interior Design Program: Theses

Classroom design has an effect on a number of students’ behaviors and performance. Architects and facilities directors are frequently faced with design decisions that impact students and do not always have the resources to help support their decision making. The purpose of this paper is to investigate how classroom design in education can facilitate students’ learning and engagement in an ever-changing technological age. Is the traditional classroom environment the most effective set up? To explore this issue, the author will provide literature review and design examples to help guide the reader through ways to accommodate these changing needs—both the ...


The Contribution To And Affect Of Design And Architecture On Health & Activity Promotion (H&Ap) In The Workplace, Krystal L. Schumacher 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Contribution To And Affect Of Design And Architecture On Health & Activity Promotion (H&Ap) In The Workplace, Krystal L. Schumacher

Theses from the Architecture Program

Expanding the research and awareness on the contribution to and affect of design and architecture on health and activity promotion in the workplace (h&ap) is essential in moving forward in the design of working environments. As humans, we spend the majority of our time indoors, for an average American adult he or she spends the majority of the day in a working environment. The impact that our spaces have is much deeper than the aesthetic. Our environments can depict how we act, feel and operate based on the design of our surroundings. Through this research, the goal was to ...
