Interior Design Senior Projects

Interior design gives you the opportunity to express your creative ideas that are both multifunctional and comfortable to the client. I love exploring new methods and techniques that will grow my education in design. Seeing something that I took from a small idea and made it into something big that benefits both the client and me, is the greatest reward money can buy.

My Design Philosophy:

My philosophy in Interior Design is inspired by my experiences in travel and my hard-working nature. Nothing worthwhile in life can be achieved without persistence, hardwork, love, and passion. Opportunities to travel abroad in Japan and Europe have encouraged my wonder and awe in different cultures and their designs, influencing the way I look at space and form.

I also believe that for an interior designer to be successful, a designer must understand and form a bond of trust between themselves and their clients in order to create a functional, beautiful, and unique space that interprets their ...

Interior Design Senior Projects

Design Philosophy:

Interior design is more than just designing spaces that are going to be aesthetically pleasing. Interior design is about creating spaces that will work for everyone yet be unique and beautiful. It is about making an impact on people’s lives, whether it is for a few hours a day or for many years to come. It's gathering ideas and innovations to design a space to fit the purpose it's being designed for. It's critical thinking on how spaces will work for individuals, not only physically but also psychologically. Interior Designers know each interior space ...

Transit, Christopher Janke 2018 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Transit, Christopher Janke

Masters Theses

This written thesis, transit, accompanies an exhibition by the same name and serves to contextualize the exhibit. The written portion begins with an inquiry into the nature of the contextualization itself, questioning the nature of the relationship between the written thesis, the exhibit, and the University which explicitly requires and connects the two, especially the ways that the written word as granted authority through an institution of higher education might undermine the exhibit’s intent to provoke thought into other forms of knowledge and other avenues of legitimacy than those presented by this institution.

The thesis discusses the philosophic question ...

Market Hall: Connecting Community Through Food, Commerce + Culture, Mary M. Jones 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Market Hall: Connecting Community Through Food, Commerce + Culture, Mary M. Jones

Capturing The Ephemeral, Caroline L. J. Matteson 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Capturing The Ephemeral, Caroline L. J. Matteson

Theses and Dissertations

Music, it has been shown, has the potential to both create social cohesion and encourage conflict resolution (Koelsch, Offermanns, & Franzke, 2010). In a city with deep roots in slavery, music may be more powerful than language or the toppling of monuments to help create a cultural identity that every demographic can fit. Not only can music improve mood in an individual, but musical contagion affects large groups at once. Creating a space to equalize access to and share the experience of music—both making and appreciation—would give the city an opportunity for reconciliation and community bonding.

While a universal quality of humanity, music is unfortunately not equally accessible to all races and ages. Children in low socioeconomic schools and aging adults are two populations that are less likely to engage in musical opportunities due to prohibitive costs, lack of resources, diminished support, reduced funding, insufficient skills for participating in organized groups, and no access to spaces for playing (Deisler, 2011; Hallam, Creech, Varvarigou, & McQueen, 2012). A public music library could remove many of the prohibitive factors for marginalized populations outlined in prior research.

To ensure that these populations are being served, a team of community members who lead a bi-weekly music-workshops for musicians of any age or level will be interviewed. Literature reviews of acoustics and spatial organization will help to inform design choices and practical considerations. Researching methods to reduce attrition in musical settings as well as projects that have ...


Partition Pause, Michael Scribner 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Partition Pause, Michael Scribner

Theses and Dissertations

MOTIVATION Mindfulness is the active pursuit of focused attention, and through practice has been shown to benefit psychological and physical well-being. While mindfulness is not a new idea, it has only tangentially been linked to Interior Design such as through performative objects (Niedderer, 2007 and 2014) which promote personal reflection before enacting a choice. If mindfulness is the active pursuit of mental presence, then Attention Restoration Theory (ART) is a passive route by which environmental cues imbue a resurgence in attention capacity (Kaplan, 2001). ART studies exemplified successful restoration through scenes of nature, and unsuccessfully in outdoor urban scenes (Berto ...


Small Town Capital In Community, Christin Hardy 2018 VCUArts

Small Town Capital In Community, Christin Hardy

Theses and Dissertations

Rural towns often do not see community developments geared towards creating public spaces for multi-cultural experiences, the arts and recreation. Instead small towns are more exposed to commercial properties coming in and out the area. Introducing public spaces that offer various community activities and events will benefit people’s human and social capital. Human capital meaning skills and knowledge. Social capital meaning advantages and skills that come from interpersonal engagements (Anderson, 2004). Community centers designed for the unique needs of small towns can house programming to introduce new and rewarding opportunities for community engagement and personal development. Existing buildings within ...

A Third Place: For Children(5–7) To Play And Learn, Yuqi Ye

Theses and Dissertations

The motivation for this project follows the untimely death of an Asian student last year. Crime rates, especially with regard to young children, are tough social problems happening in a lot of countries. Education and structured play are a key solution related to decreasing these crime rates. In today's educational systems, preschool education should involve family and community, foster mutual cooperation, and provide the best environment for a child's growth to promote their potential development.

Designing School Community: Changing Inner-City Middle School Culture Through Interiors, Rachel A. Ramey

Theses and Dissertations

While the knowledge of disrepair in inner-city schools is fairly common, the impact that school facilities are having on students and faculty is not as widely known. More recently, the closing of inner city schools has greatly increased across the United States; Reduction in public school enrollment from 2006-2013: Detroit -63%, Cleveland -32%, Indianapolis -27%, D.C. -23%, L.A. -23%,etc. (Journey For Justice Alliance,2014).

Due to budget cuts, threat of school closings from poor facility conditions, large class size, and pressure to raise test scores, inner city schools struggle to keep teachers (Journey For Justice Alliance,2014 ...
