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 ...


Roma, Auctrix Imperii? Rome's Role In Imperial Propaganda And Policy From 293 Ce Until 324 Ce, John M. Fabiano 2013 McMaster University

Roma, Auctrix Imperii? Rome's Role In Imperial Propaganda And Policy From 293 Ce Until 324 Ce, John M. Fabiano

Open Access Dissertations and Theses

By the early fourth century Rome was more than a thousand years old and the historical caput mundi was, accordingly, steeped in long established traditions. It was these historical traditions and memories that served as paradigms for understanding present circumstances. One such paradigm was the relationship between Rome and her emperors. Traditionally, monarchical power was the antithesis of the Roman Republican model, yet Augustus uniquely altered this model and established a new acceptable paradigm wherein the emperor was the princeps civitatis and the patron to all Romans. This imperial patronage was characterized primarily by the commissioning of public buildings in ...


Predicting Building Energy Performance: Leveraging Bim Content For Energy Efficient Buildings, Eddie Villanueva Aquino 2013 California Polytechnic State University

Predicting Building Energy Performance: Leveraging Bim Content For Energy Efficient Buildings, Eddie Villanueva Aquino

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Reducing and managing the environmental impacts of building structures has become a priority of building stakeholders and within the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) community; although, conflicting approaches and methods to combat the issues are present. For example, green building standards are widespread throughout the world; however each one has its own characteristics and consequently its own specific requirements. While all have proven to be effective rating systems and have similar requirements, the distinguishing characteristic that separates them is their treatment of performance and prescriptive metrics. The feature they all severely lack or currently limit is the inclusion of strict ...


Interactions Between The Urban Environment And “The Homelessness”: Observations And Responses, Jeffrey Charles Stahl 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Interactions Between The Urban Environment And “The Homelessness”: Observations And Responses, Jeffrey Charles Stahl

Masters Theses

Homelessness and people living on the streets is a phenomenon that is facing every major urban center in the United States. These people are a commonality in the urban landscape and are often seen a problem to be fi xed. Due to the interactions between the urban environment and persons experiencing homelessness, there needs to be a paradigm shift in how policy is written and how we design an intervention for these forgotten people. The goal of this thesis is to gain a clearer understanding to what it is like to survive on the streets: how dose someone fi nd ...


The Vestiges Of The Sacred, Benjamin James Wathen 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Vestiges Of The Sacred, Benjamin James Wathen

Architecture Publications and Other Works

As religiosity fades from Western society, a general apathy

has begun to pervade contemporary life. The role of

religion as the orientation point of life (for many people)

has vanished leaving voids within the cultural fabric. The

post-modern movement epitomized this well through the

embrace of a life devoid of purposeful meaning and infinite

interpretation. Through this we have lost the sense

of the sacred and the careful reverence of things higher

than ourselves.

How can architecture induce this sense of the sacred?

Site: Abandoned Railway Tunnel (Detroit to Windsor)

Program: Pedestrian crossing and Contemplative Park

Goal: design a daily ...

Architecture As Pedagogy: Designing Sustainable Schools As Three-Dimensional Textbooks, Ester Ehrlich Schwartz 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Architecture As Pedagogy: Designing Sustainable Schools As Three-Dimensional Textbooks, Ester Ehrlich Schwartz

Masters Theses

The importance of school buildings has been recognized as a fundamental element of modern society. Today, roughly a quarter of America’s population, including our youngest citizens, spend the majority of their days in school buildings. Still, many of our nation’s schools are in disrepair, with systems in need of repair or replacement.

Over the years, strong evidence and research have shown that school building impact student’s health and their ability to learn. Green schools mean healthier environments for students and staff. Pragmatically, we also know that that green schools save money. Energy-efficient buildings help reduce energy costs ...


Aging In Urbanity, Brantley Farron Bass 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Aging In Urbanity, Brantley Farron Bass

Masters Theses

As the number of Americans over the age of fifty continues to rise, there are growing concerns over the quality of health care facilities and their availability and affordability. There are those who prefer the idea of growing older in a sprawling, suburban landscape, surrounded by nature, and history has proven this to be a normative response to retirement living. Yet, there could be other ways of introducing this type of living in a more accessible, lively and urban environment. There are many different options of living for younger generations and families, so the potential for providing similar options for ...

Post-Industrial New England: Repairing The Voids, Jaime Ryznic 2013 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Post-Industrial New England: Repairing The Voids, Jaime Ryznic

Jaime Ryznic

Decaying urban spaces are common in post-industrial New England. When manufacturing activities withdrew from New England they left holes in the urban fabric. Physical absence of these former economic drivers is easy to note in empty mill buildings, warehouses, and storefronts. Farther reaching impacts of this exodus are less apparent. Jobs went with manufacturing. Raw materials needed to be harvested and made available to manufacturers; the finished products needed to be distributed, sold, and moved; supporting businesses provided for these needs. Many other groups supported manufacturing; some through the management of the companies, some catered to workers’ needs, or the ...

Barriers To Health Care For People With Disabilities And Practice Administrators’ Knowledge Of The Ada: Nevada Compared With The Nation, Jennifer Pharr, Michelle Chino

Interdisciplinary Research Scholarship Day

The purpose of this study was to determine if the number of barriers reported in the clinics could be predicted by characteristics of the administrators or
characteristics of the practice.To increase accessibility to health care, interventions should focus on practices located in buildings built before 1993, practices with administrators who are younger and have limited experience as administrators, administrators with low levels of ADA knowledge and practices with smaller number of patients.

Addressing Imbalance In Park Distribution And Accessibility In Disadvantaged Neighborhoods, Erin M. Tharp 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Addressing Imbalance In Park Distribution And Accessibility In Disadvantaged Neighborhoods, Erin M. Tharp

Architecture Publications and Other Works

This thesis will critically study the issue of socio-economic class based inequitable distribution of landscape / recreational resources based on the context of Knoxville. The preliminary study indicates that areas such as Sequoyah Hills and Island Homes are established neighborhoods that speak of safety and security. These areas are predominantly white and house educated, white-collar individuals. There are large, well-maintained parks, with sidewalks, and trails in these neighborhoods and community members take an active stand when it comes to taking care of these areas. This can be seen by the recent revitalization of the Sequoyah Hills Walking Trail, which is in ...
