Adhocracy, Sara Denney 2018 James Madison University

Adhocracy, Sara Denney

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-2019

Adhocracy Sara Denney The Situationists of the 1960’s were cultural revolutionaries critical of passive consumerism and encouraged the reawakening of everyday life. In the spirit of the Situationists, and operating as an “ad-hocing” machine, this project proposes a machine to repurpose objects of everyday life -- reimagining what things might become and transcending limits of their inherent definitions. Why can’t a stroller be a shower head? Categories by default create opposing forces within a situation. Arthur Rimbaud, a French poet who influenced situationist thought, coined the quote “Il faut changer la vie”, “we must change life”. By freeing things ...

The Hutongs Blooming 08, L Khawn Din

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-2019

China’s rapid development has altered the city’s landscape on a massive scale, continually eroding the delicate urban tissue of old Beijing. Such dramatic changes have forced an aging architecture to rely on chaotic, spontaneous renovations to survive the ever-changing neighborhood. In addition, poor standards of hygiene have turned unique living space and potential thriving communities into a serious urban problem. Hutongs are gradually becoming the local inhabitants’ dumpster and the haven for the wealthy. The hutongs blooming 08, will be inserted into the urban fabric, structure like clouds, attracting new people, activities, and resources to reactivate entire neighborhoods ...

Challenging The Norm Of Minimums: A Case Study Of Ada Design Standards On The University Of Nebraska-Lincoln Campus, Emily Drummy

Interior Design Program: Theses

In the United States, over 30 million people have difficulties climbing stairs and require the use of a walker, cane, or wheelchair to move around (United States Census Bureau, 2012). All people interact with the built environment around them, including the some thirty million who deal with physical difficulties. While some can navigate the space around them easily, others have more difficulty due to certain barriers. Often, interior environments are designed with the able bodied in mind, not accommodating properly for the disabled even in the most basic of ways. Despite the introduction of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA ...

Ranking Of Human Senses In Relation To Different In-Flight Activities Contributing To The Comfort Experience Of Airplane Passengers, Joyce Bouwens, Suzanne Hiemstra-Van Mastrigt, Peter Vink

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Bubb, Bengler, Grünen, and Vollrath (2015) identified six environmental comfort factors and ordered them from most important to least important (smell, light, vibrations, sound, climate and anthropometry). This paper attempts to verify whether this suggested order of comfort-related factors also applies to the expectations of aircraft passengers. For this purpose, two studies were carried out. First, a survey was conducted among 183 aircraft passengers between 19 and 64 years old. In this survey, respondents were asked to rank six comfort factors by selecting the most important factor from 15 pairs of factors (e.g. light versus smell). The respondents indicated ...

UNLV School of Architecture VERTEX

From the foreword: Vertex was organized to showcase some of the UNLV School of Architecture’s most prominent areas of strength. Our multidisciplinary design foundation program is the initial building block that instills in students an ethos of systematic inquiry through making. Appropriately structured processes of experimentation and production using a variety of tools and media help students develop significant spatial understandings through the sequential act of drawing and making. The spatial understandings developed in the design foundation, supplemented by a culture of inquiry through making that is cultivated in our design studios, prepare our students to creatively engage in ...

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 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'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 ...

Design Philosophy

You were designed to discover. If you never push your boundaries you will never learn to grow. Those that live in comfort are afraid to ever glow. Have faith in yourself and always know, “That faith, as small as a mustard seed can move a mountain.” So where will your journey go?

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.

Adaptive Repurposing Of Smith Elementary, KELSEY L. FIELDS 2018 The University of Akron

Adaptive Repurposing Of Smith Elementary, Kelsey L. Fields

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

For almost 100 years Smith Elementary School has been an institution of learning and a place of growth for children across the community of Kenmore, including myself. While its closing marks the end of an era it also presents a unique opportunity. Through adaptive reuse, Smith Elementary can have a second life and remain a cornerstone building in the community. The central goal of maintaining the beautiful original architectural details blends with the challenge of making this a functional space where a business can flourish, in the same rooms as hundreds of children have done before. This idea will set ...
