Sentience-Towards A Responsive And Systems Driven Design Process., Juliana Barton 2017 University of Colorado, Boulder

Sentience-Towards A Responsive And Systems Driven Design Process., Juliana Barton

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Sentience is a pilot project and call for an alternative to the current design process most widely accepted and practiced in architecture and design. It challenges the current use of technology as simply a means for representation and end production, by suggesting a truly explorative and multi-disciplinary approach to designing through computation. Cutting- edge work such as Neri Oxman’s Material Ecology studies, or the fibrous, robotically-fabricated pavilions by Achim Menges exemplifies the potential for technology’s use in design that is not limited to generating form, but is attuned to the dynamic qualities of living systems. Integrating computation and ...


Material Poetics, Ellen G. Reid 2017 James Madison University

Material Poetics, Ellen G. Reid

Masters Theses

quench: /kwen(t)SH/

a : put out, extinguish

b : to put out the light or fire

c : to cool suddenly by immersion

d : to cause to lose heat or warmth

e : to bring to an end typically by satisfying, damping, cooling, or

decreasing

f : to relieve or satisfy with liquid

This is often how projects begin, a haunting idea, word, or experience inundates my consciousness and sub-consciousness. How could the body directly relate to an experience of quenching? This provoked the idea of the extreme sport: freediving. To adequately depict the definition of quenching, any ordinary depth would not suffice ...


An Incremental Intervention In Jakarta: An Empowering Infrastructural Approach For Upgrading Informal Settlements, Christopher H. Counihan 2017 University of Massachusetts Amherst

An Incremental Intervention In Jakarta: An Empowering Infrastructural Approach For Upgrading Informal Settlements, Christopher H. Counihan

Masters Theses

Incrementalism is a growing movement within multiple design disciplines that approaches design with sustainable, social, and resilient aims structured around participatory, infrastructural, and phased approaches to design. Carefully considered structural and independent infrastructural frameworks allow infill and accretion according to the demands and needs of individuals and communities. This paper outlines the theories, case studies, and conditions driving incrementalism. My research has informed my project proposal for an incremental upgrade of a slum located in Jakarta using a phased, soft infrastructural, resident facilitated upgrade and development strategy creating new housing units, productive landscapes, and urban form. Incremental development will foster ...


Z-Cube: Mobile Living For Feminist Nomads, Zi Ye 2017 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Z-Cube: Mobile Living For Feminist Nomads, Zi Ye

Masters Theses

Homes proclaim our social standing and reflect the trend of the times. This project seeks to explore and redefine the relationship between modern homes and modern women who strive for mobile life styles.

Modernism and globalization have brought us a new way of living that could have never been imagined before— our workspace and homes are no longer limited to a specific unit but have extended to the entire globe. The physical changes compelled by modernity have also complemented the changing role of women. Since the beginning of the 20th century, modern women have expanded their lives outside of their ...


Case Study Strategies For Designers: Teaching Integrative Data Evaluation, Marja Sarvimaki 2017 Bond University

Case Study Strategies For Designers: Teaching Integrative Data Evaluation, Marja Sarvimaki

Faculty of Society and Design Publications

Teaching research methodology and conducting architectural research for years has revealed to the author of this paper that there is noticeable lack of globally established depictions of methods in design re-search, also called evidence-based design or practice-based research. Partially this is caused by the fact that research carried out by architects and other designers is a somewhat new phenomenon, when compared to many other disciplines, partially by the wide range of subject matters and paradigms in architectural and environmental research. The lack of defined methodology applies particularly to case studies, although those are most commonly employed by designers. In professional ...


Dynamic Modular Housing, Andrew S. Hoover Mr. 2017 University of Colorado, Boulder

Dynamic Modular Housing, Andrew S. Hoover Mr.

Undergraduate Honors Theses

The exploration of Dynamic Modular Housing provides new ways to create homes, with a process of compartmentalizing individual rooms into separate modules that can interchange, move, or be relocated through out the home. This compartmentalization process allows homes to even be relocated to new locations. The concepts of modularity and organized systems help to inform and rationalize the modules. The purpose through prototyping models illustrates the need for this dynamic modular system. Modeling the modules illuminated the problems in design. I found that the only private module or rather private space you needed in a home was the bathroom and ...

Wal-Seum, Maya Chandler 2017 James Madison University

Wal-Seum, Maya Chandler

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Designed as a museum of contemporary American history, Wal-seum proposes a new prototype museum that re-presents the commodities of today’s America as historical and cultural artifacts of our time. The museum’s design also borrows from the spatial and organizational techniques of Wal-mart, a place that so many Americans visit time and time again, and which is truly American architecture.

In the final proposal, each department of Wal-mart becomes redesigned as an exhibit in the museum, showcasing ordinary objects, taking cues from the cultural agendas of those items, and calling into question the values therein (i.e. the endless ...


The Farmacy, Emilie E. Dunnenberger 2017 James Madison University

The Farmacy, Emilie E. Dunnenberger

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

The human population has practiced natural, herbal forms of medicine since the beginning of recorded healthcare. Only in the past 150 years have our ideas of healthcare evolved to what we know today, a reactive and immediate response to disease and illness. Using the science of phytotherapy and the processes of herbalism, this network of spaces work together to offer a traditional form of healing in a modernized setting. Prototyped in the city of Philadelphia, The FARMacy works alongside existing buildings to treat patients through an alternative yet instinctive form of medicine.


Building (V.) Gastronomy, Zoe C. George 2017 James Madison University

Building (V.) Gastronomy, Zoe C. George

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

Through experimentation and examination of the transformations of food, comes the architecture of food processes.

Food is not just a means of survival, it brings forth colors, textures, smells, and even memories that engage the senses and stimulate our brains.

Three experiments titled Pigment, Ferment, and Leaven examine these transformations, resulting in a series of devices designed to engage the user and invite them to look, touch, smell, taste and create.

Pigment explores how a solid form becomes a liquid that has the ability to dye or avor. The container is designed to observe the jour- ney of the liquid ...


[Un]Known Lines, Kimberly M. Faber 2017 James Madison University

[Un]Known Lines, Kimberly M. Faber

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

An exploration of the innate changes of the passing of time, was accomplished first by investigating nature’s way of documenting time through layers within ice cores in Antarctica and then through the design of architectural interventions that marked and documented the passing of time through the D.C. area on the National Mall through an exchange of storytelling. Theses interventions began to change + manipulate + document buildings in the D.C. area. The information was sent back to the National Mall and later the information (story) was sent to yet another area.


The Room Itself Is Active: How Classroom Design Impacts Student Engagement, Melissa L. Rands, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf 2017 Minneapolis College of Art and Design

The Room Itself Is Active: How Classroom Design Impacts Student Engagement, Melissa L. Rands, Ann M. Gansemer-Topf

Education Publications

A responsive case study evaluation approach utilizing interviews and focus groups collected student and faculty perspectives on examined how instructors and students utilized a newly redesigned active learning space at Iowa State University and the relationship of this design with environmental and behavioral factors of student engagement. The findings demonstrate how classroom design affords engagement through low-cost learning tools and a flexible, open, student-centered space afforded a variety of active learning strategies. In addition, this case study highlights the importance of conducting assessment on classroom redesign initiatives to justify and improve future classroom spaces.


The Shenzhen Activist Program`, Hyunggyu Kim, Jae Hyun Kim 2016 Syracuse University

The Shenzhen Activist Program`, Hyunggyu Kim, Jae Hyun Kim

Architecture Senior Theses

There is a gap between being an architecture student in western countries and working as an architect in underrepresented communities. Architect Teddy Cruz defines the role of an activist architect as "expanded mode of practice", and the task of "deigning the protocols or the interfaces between communities and spaces".

This thesis contends that architecture schools need to continue to embrace the widely-accepted norm of studios studying abroad and working in an international studio. Current study abroad programs tend to skew towards being touristic field trips and there is not a curriculum or programmatic investment in cultivating relationships between the visiting ...


Gra[In]Vincible, Kimberly Ann Wojcik 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Gra[In]Vincible, Kimberly Ann Wojcik

Masters Theses

This thesis is about the stitching of a community back together at a scale that is appropriate to the existing demographics. The memory of place and time are still evident in the relics that are the Buffalo Grain Elevators; the only changing variable is the rate of population and affordability in the adjacent Old First Ward.

The economic downturn of big business and the havoc it wreaked on the worker community created a ripple effect in large enough scale to grab hold of an entire city. In an attempt to bulldoze rust covered structures and knock down abandoned homes rather ...

Future Oriented Sustainable Design. Design Purpose: What Is Design And Who Is It For? [Please Note: This Is A Large File And May Be Slow To Download.], Barry Sheehan

Academic Articles

In November 2016 I was asked to make a presentation at the Future Oriented Sustainable Design International Conference in Wuhan in the People's Republic of China. My topic was Design Purpose: What is Design? And who is it for?

The presentation examines the wider aspects of design and its categories and asks who were are actually designing for.

I made a powerpoint presentation that I narrated in English whilst it was simultaneously translated into Chinese for the attendees at the conference. On my return to Ireland I created a soundtrack to accompany the presentation slides for people to watch ...
