Transportation Related Challenges For Persons' With Disabilities Social Participation, 2017 Utah State University
Transportation Related Challenges For Persons' With Disabilities Social Participation, Graydon Bascom
All Graduate Theses and Dissertations
Gaining access to transportation is essential for obtaining employment, education, healthcare, and social interaction. Individuals who face difficulties in gaining this access are considered ‘transportation disadvantaged’ and include individuals of lower socioeconomic status, aging individuals, and persons with disabilities. In our autodependent society, individuals with disabilities face even fewer opportunities to interact within their communities. In order to better understand how individuals with disabilities are limited by their access to transportation, two studies were conducted.
The first study specifically seeks to examine how individuals with disabilities gain access to transportation and the interpersonal relationships that affect opportunities for social participation ...

3d Tool Evaluation And Workflow For An Ecological Approach To Visualizing Ancient Socio-Environmental Landscapes: A Case Study From Copan, Honduras, Heather Richards-Rissetto, Shona Sanford-Long, Jack Kerby-Miller
Anthropology Faculty Publications
Architectural reconstructions are the centerpieces of ancient landscape visualization. When present, vegetation is relegated to the background, resulting in underutilized plant data—an integral data source for archaeological interpretation—thus limiting the capacity to take advantage of 3D visualization for studying ancient socio-environmental dynamics. Our long-term objective is to develop methods of 3D landscape visualization that have value for examining changes in land use and settlement patterns. To begin to work toward this objective, we have (1) identified 3D tools and techniques for vegetation modeling and landscape visualization, (2) evaluated the pros and cons of these tools, (3) investigated biological ...

Aftermarket Supermarket | A Speculative Retrospective, 2016 Syracuse University
Aftermarket Supermarket | A Speculative Retrospective, Alexander Kim
Architecture Senior Theses
In the preface to Delusive Spaces: Essays on Culture, Media and Technology, media theorist Eric Kluitenberg writes that “the delusion of the new”1 pollutes our theorizations of new media. This sort of technocratic fetishization of emergent technologies can only amount to a surfatial investigation of its effects or capabilities. Architectural investigations of virtual reality and other new media systems suffer from this tendency as well. Content-based experimentation and criticism obsess over the simultaneously exciting and daunting prospects of what we can now do or make with recent digital developments. There’s definite value in such endeavors, but frankly, in ...
Kentucky Rural Development, 2016 Murray State University
Kentucky Rural Development, Patrick J. Hooks
The main objective of this study is to examine the development of rural areas to more urbanized ones within Kentucky. Landsat images were used to show the urban land cover change over a 10 year span, from 2001 to 2011. The study shows specifically how the city of Louisville has expanded because it was one of the most changed cities in Kentucky during the period of the study. Maps were created from these Landsat images. Studying these developments can help to predict the amount of change that might happen in certain areas in the future. Using geographic information systems (GIS ...
Community Partnership As A Foundation For Scholarship, Pedagogy, And Research—An Interactive Session, 2016 Iowa State University
Community Partnership As A Foundation For Scholarship, Pedagogy, And Research—An Interactive Session, Nadia Anderson, Carl A. Rogers, Lynn Paxson, Kristin Nelson, Courtney Long, Julia Badenhope
Nadia M. Anderson
In Good Deeds Good Design, Roberta Feldman states that empowering community design facilitates effective, informed decision-making by “people who have traditionally had minimal say” (Feldman, 2003, 110). Doing this requires designers to consider communities as partners rather than clients and see their work as a collective endeavor rather than a professional gift. At Iowa State University, faculty in multiple departments are using partnership-based outreach methods to generate disciplinary and trans-disciplinary projects engaging studio teaching, research, and scholarship. Critical to these projects is the idea that partnership inverts the traditional power relationship between designers and underserved communities by valuing local knowledge ...

Transforming The Office Of Sustainability's Front Yard Into An Edible Landscape, 2016 Western Kentucky University
Transforming The Office Of Sustainability's Front Yard Into An Edible Landscape, Alexandra Hezik
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
Since moving to 503 Regents Avenue in Fall 2013, the WKU Office of Sustainability has served as a sustainable best practices demonstration home for the WKU and Bowling Green communities. Not only does the house in which the Office of Sustainability is located serve as an educational tool for people, but also the landscape. In May 2014, the WKU Community Garden was established in the backyard. The transformation of the Office of Sustainability’s front lawn into an edible landscape began on April 1, 2015. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate an alternative to conventional lawns.
Culinary Biologique And Cartographic Anxiety, 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Culinary Biologique And Cartographic Anxiety, Adam Lamar Buchanan
The 21st century’s most dominant characteristic, and greatest challenge, is the explosive growth of the world’s population. Swelling at an exponential rate, the increasing physical distance between the acts of growth and consumption yields an agrarian system that is highly unsustainable… a crisis looms in the future!
This crisis is most easily detected in images of the Earth taken from satellites. These recently recorded pixels of reflected light taken from the cherished Icarian vantage point have been acquired and perfected over the past five decades. Ultimately, these lightning speed revelations show patterns that emerge as broken relationships that ...
Public Stormwater Management With Green Streets, 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Public Stormwater Management With Green Streets, Yea Lim Choi
The dangers of stormwater are often overlooked until it is too late. Floods are the most regularly occurring and damaging threat to the built environment, compared to earthquakes, tornadoes, and wildfires. Due to the impervious nature of today’s landscape and outdated infrastructural practices, floods are detrimental. Overflow events can occur during heavy rain events, which will result in environmental damage. With the onset of climate change and prediction of higher amount of precipitation, immediate actions must be taken to drastically reduce the impact stormwater can have on the environment.
One of the current trends in landscape architecture for managing ...
Urban Infrastructure Reconnection: Recuperating The Riverfront Of Cincinnati., 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Urban Infrastructure Reconnection: Recuperating The Riverfront Of Cincinnati., Ethan William Keller
Transportation infrastructure has created divides within cities, but as cities continue to grow again, these spaces can be recuperated, utilized, and integrated into the urban fabric to reconnect neighborhoods, engage people in urban culture, and insure long-term viability of cities. Cincinnati is a city that has been divided by convergent highways cutting the riverfront from the downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. These large voids of space must be activated to develop a reconnection that once existed between the city and its riverfront. Connectivity will create an abundance of pedestrian flow which will increase growth and economic opportunities for the city. Infrastructure ...

L’Architecture Des Premières Maisons Européennes D’Alger, 1830-1865, 2016 Ecole polytechnique d'architecture et d'urbanisme d'Alger
L’Architecture Des Premières Maisons Européennes D’Alger, 1830-1865, Asma Hadjilah
Dès 1830, la présence française à Alger apporta un changement notable dans paysage architectural de la ville. La construction de maisons européennes en constitue le trait le plus manifeste. Leurs premiers modèles sont élevés au sein même de la ville ottomane, principalement dans sa partie basse. Nous tentons dans cet article d’éclairer certains aspects de ce type d’habitat. Pour ce faire, nous nous appuierons sur les trois outils de travail nécessaires à l’étude de l’architecture mineure, à savoir le parcellaire, le gabarit et l’ordonnancement. Par ailleurs, on interrogera le débat sur la circulation internationale des ...
