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 ...

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

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.

Design Philosophy

I strive to meet others in their wholeness and individuality. To see them as unique individuals. The end goal is to create modern spaces that contribute to the health, safety, and welfare of the public. I design to bring a genuine smile to the many people I encounter.

Always reminded that each space needs to be as beautiful as its future owner. Therefore, we must always keep in mind to stay dedicated to the job and always respect the value of craftsmanship. Bringing contemporary design to a new client is always a thrill, but bringing satisfaction ...

The Classroom Paradigm: Design In A Technology-Driven Era, Candace Thompson 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

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 ...


Working With Paul Rudolph To Make Rudolph Work: Reclaiming, Conserving, And Adapting Sarasota High School (1958), Katherine Marie Armstrong 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Working With Paul Rudolph To Make Rudolph Work: Reclaiming, Conserving, And Adapting Sarasota High School (1958), Katherine Marie Armstrong

Masters Theses

Sarasota High School, designed by Paul Rudolph in 1958, physically embodies the central ideas of Regional Modernism that developed in Sarasota, Florida in the 1940s and 50s. Covered breezeways, monumental sunshades, deep overhangs, and sliding glass doors promote natural ventilation and sun shading as ways to deal with Florida’s hot climate. As an example of progressive architecture of the time, it is a seminal work of Rudolph’s and significant to Sarasota’s architectural legacy of climatically responsive, modernist buildings that captured international attention.

Sixty years later, Sarasota High School is now unoccupied and in a state of disrepair ...


Baye Fadioul Niang: A Brief Biography Of An Ebeniste In Senegal, Katie J. Niang 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Baye Fadioul Niang: A Brief Biography Of An Ebeniste In Senegal, Katie J. Niang

Interior Design: Student Creative Activity

Baye Fadioul Niang described himself as a traditional European designer of wood furniture, doors, and trim. In 1945, at age 22, Fadioul began designing furniture as an apprentice in the state labor department of Kaolack. He settled in Dakar, where Fadioul not only designed and constructed furniture, but was a popular informal educator in the business. His furniture shop became a center for education in Menuserie and Ebenisterie, which is the art of furniture making. In 2005 Fadioul retired from furniture making because of deteriorating eyesight.

Includes photos taken in February 2013 in Dakar, Senegal.


Transparency: The Unspoken Design Element -- How Levels Of Visibility Affect Adult Learning And Sharing, Erica M. Bartels 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Transparency: The Unspoken Design Element -- How Levels Of Visibility Affect Adult Learning And Sharing, Erica M. Bartels

Theses from the Architecture Program

Adult learning and sharing environments, specifically high school, college, and workplace facilities, maintain a similar purpose in terms of meeting the needs of the institution and its users. For each of these three project types, the design team develops a plan for users that are capable of social, cognitive maturity while engaging in the creation of new knowledge or ideas. With abundant discussion available on the design variations of these spaces, such as open vs. closed delineations; individual and group work; online or unplugged, it is necessary to dig deeper into the environmental psychology at play amidst the built environment ...


The Impact Of Green Design On The Emotional Health Of Patients In Children's Healthcare Facilities, Kimberly M. Riege 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Impact Of Green Design On The Emotional Health Of Patients In Children's Healthcare Facilities, Kimberly M. Riege

Interior Design Program: Theses

With a significant amount of research focusing on the design of healthcare facilities, this thesis examined the relationship between specific aspects of green design and their effect on the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in children's healthcare facilities. Case studies of two children's clinics in Omaha, Nebraska were conducted to study the effects a connection to the natural world and the acoustic environment had on patients' emotional state. One case study site was a newly built children's clinic that incorporated a connection to nature with a focus on the acoustic environment while the other was an ...

Libraries Reports

Purdue University’s commitment to active learning requires facilities that support small-­‐group work, peer learning, the use of technology, and other classroom innovations. The Active Learning Center is intended to provide classroom space combined seamlessly with library space to meet these needs. Members of the Libraries faculty and staff conducted a series of information-­‐gathering activities to gain insight into the range of activities, work practices and preferences that the new building must support. It is our hope that the building will indeed support these activities, serve as a centrally located, flagship building for Purdue University, and support and ...

Incorporating Historic Preservation Into An Accredited Interior Design Program, Reasoning And Application, Jenna M. Woodcox 2013 Wayne State University

Incorporating Historic Preservation Into An Accredited Interior Design Program, Reasoning And Application, Jenna M. Woodcox

Mid-America College Art Association Conference 2012 Digital Publications

Due to the recent decline of the economic situation in the United States, more credibility needs to be established in regard to the professions that are deemed “luxury career paths”. This essay focuses on interior design and historic preservation integration. This literature is intended to bring more credibility and awareness to the interior design field to show outsiders the potential and importance it holds. Most importantly, this proposal is for current designers who are not working in the field, to not give up hope for their design careers and think of ways to reinvent themselves (like choosing a specialty) to ...


Ordered Chaos: The Negotiation Of Space In Deconstructivist Museum Buildings, Sam Mandry 2013 University of Puget Sound

Ordered Chaos: The Negotiation Of Space In Deconstructivist Museum Buildings, Sam Mandry

Summer Research

Within this paper I focus on the use of Deconstructivism in Architecture, specifically in a museum setting. I ask if the use of Deconstruction in a museum's design has any effect on how the museum sets up its objects and displays, and if these displays have any effect on the perception of the objects within the museum. I also have found that the use of Deconstructivism is reflective of the shifting purpose in the museum, and the attitudes towards the museum as a cultural institution.


From Carson Pirie Scott To City Target: A Case Study On The Adaptive Reuse Of Louis Sullivan’S Historic Sullivan Center, Lisa M. Switzer 2012 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

From Carson Pirie Scott To City Target: A Case Study On The Adaptive Reuse Of Louis Sullivan’S Historic Sullivan Center, Lisa M. Switzer

Theses from the Architecture Program

This study provides an in-depth exploration of the adaptive reuse of one of Chicago’s most iconic structures over the course of a year from the Summer of 2011 to the Summer of 2012. The Sullivan Center was converted from a mid-scale retailer to City Target. Through extensive interviews with the Target development team, Chicago city officials, historians and Landmark Commission representatives this study documents the conversion and identifies the successes and opportunities of the project. The study follows the project from design development to completion, and provides insight on the local community perspective on the development.
