An Examination Of What Motivates Utah Residents To Adopt The Practice Of Rainwater Harvesting, D. Wayne Honaker 2018 Utah State University

An Examination Of What Motivates Utah Residents To Adopt The Practice Of Rainwater Harvesting, D. Wayne Honaker

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Although most of the earth is covered in water, a very limited amount of that water is fresh water, which is essential to our survival. Therefore, it is imperative that we do all that is possible to conserve and protect our extremely limited water resources, especially in arid regions such as the American West. While there are many ways and means to protecting and preserving our water resources, this thesis focuses on the strategy of rainwater harvesting (RWH) as it is done throughout the state of Utah. RWH is defined as taking the precipitation that falls on our built structures ...


An Evaluation Of Public Open Space In Downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, Karl Dietrich 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

An Evaluation Of Public Open Space In Downtown Lincoln, Nebraska, Karl Dietrich

Community and Regional Planning Program: Student Projects and Theses

Public open space provides many benefits to a downtown area. Among the benefits are economic growth, social connectivity, health, and helping to create an identity for a city. As many cities continue to sprawl outwards, it is important that their downtown areas create a sense of place so that businesses and people stay and visit. Public open spaces can help provide that much needed sense of place. This study examines whether the “public space index” designed by Vikas Mehta (2014) is effective at evaluating public open spaces. This was done by using four public open spaces (Foundation Garden, Tower Square ...


The Sea Ranch: Unforeseen Failures And Statewide Successes Of An Ecologically Conscious Coastal Community, Robert Daley 2018 Dominican University of California

The Sea Ranch: Unforeseen Failures And Statewide Successes Of An Ecologically Conscious Coastal Community, Robert Daley

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

The term “residential development” or “planned community” brings to mind images of a stereotypical suburbia. The planned community of The Sea Ranch, along the Sonoma County coast in Northern California is a direct challenge to the suburban ideal. Construction of the nearly 1500 homes began in the late 1960s and continues to present day. All of the homes must meet specific design requirements including being ecologically sound and they must fit within the landscape. The strict architectural elements is what provides the distinct look of the community. The construction of a housing development along a ten-mile strip of untouched and ...


Housing For All In India And Its Future In Sustainable Development, Nadia Shah 2018 Illinois Institute of Technology

Housing For All In India And Its Future In Sustainable Development, Nadia Shah

Journal of Global Initiatives: Policy, Pedagogy, Perspective

The Government of India has been challenged with a growing housing demand for more than half a century, since its independence in 1947. The shift in the country’s population from rural to urban creates an emerging dynamic in the housing gap. While India continues to move forward, already the world’s fastest growing economy, in the realm of manufacturing and services, the housing demand continues to increase. This paper investigates the causes and consequences of the housing shortage in India, by examining the country’s past policies that have been public housing, sites and services, slum upgrading and self-help ...


Identifying And Assessing Conflicts Between Future Development And Current Migratory Bird Habitat Around Farmington Bay, Utah, Aubin A. Douglas 2018 Utah State University

Identifying And Assessing Conflicts Between Future Development And Current Migratory Bird Habitat Around Farmington Bay, Utah, Aubin A. Douglas

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Every year, the Great Salt Lake (GSL) and its associated wetlands provide critical habitat for over 250 migratory bird species from both the Pacific and Central Flyways. The GSL borders the Wasatch Front, which is the fastest growing and most populous region in Utah. To support the ever-increasing working population, the government of Utah aspires to increase the robust economic growth of the region through economic incentives and development of infrastructure. As this area continues to develop, greater pressure will be placed on the surrounding natural resources, including the GSL, its wetlands, and the open space and agricultural land that ...

Transient Analysis Of Full Scale And Experimental Downburst Flows, Junayed Chowdhury 2018 The University of Western Ontario

Transient Analysis Of Full Scale And Experimental Downburst Flows, Junayed Chowdhury

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Downbursts are highly transient natural phenomena which produce strong downdrafts evolving from a cumulonimbus cloud They induce an outburst of damaging winds on or near to the ground causing an immense damage to the ground mounted structures and aircrafts. This study investigates the transient nature of downbursts using wind speed records from full scale downburst events employing an objective methodology. This method can detect the abrupt change points in a downburst time series based on statistical parameters such as mean, standard deviation and linear trend. In addition to the analysis of the full scale downburst events, several large scale experimental ...

Ala Wai Canal: The Bridging Of Opposites, Jonathan Quach, Thien Phuc Ngoc Nguyen, Isabella Yu 2018 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Ala Wai Canal: The Bridging Of Opposites, Jonathan Quach, Thien Phuc Ngoc Nguyen, Isabella Yu

Mānoa Horizons

Our lands were once naturally able to buffer, absorb, and filtrate water from the mountains. These qualities were lost when the Ala Wai Canal was created and Waikīkī became densely urbanized. Up in the mountains, the Makīkī, Mānoa, and Pālolo streams, which feed into Ala Wai, were degraded when neighborhoods were built around them, worsening the systematic health of the watershed and Ala Wai Canal. Trash, debris, petroleum, and sediment plague the waters—often washing up along the Ala Wai Canal after storms. The presence of concrete dominated the landscape, and soon, the health of our land, water and ecosystems ...


A Heart For Kapālama: Transforming Kapālama Canal Into An Urban Catalyst Through Renaturation And Remediation, Jonathan Quach 2018 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

A Heart For Kapālama: Transforming Kapālama Canal Into An Urban Catalyst Through Renaturation And Remediation, Jonathan Quach

Mānoa Horizons

Over the last two centuries, Kapālama has undergone dramatic transformations. It was once a floodplain adorned with lo‘i (Taro) and fish ponds (DTL). Today, Kapālama is an industrial center, home to the working class. Originally, the canal was conceived and built in 1939 as a flood prevention measure; the stream’s periodic flooding became increasingly problematic as the population in the area grew denser (WCIT). Initially, the water quality was relatively clean as residents would regularly access the water to swim and fish (DTL). As industrial use became more prominent, water quality began to plummet, and the canal became ...

Architecture Fast And Slow: Spatial And Material Procrastination, Sara Khorshidifard, Hannah Dewhirst 2018 Bowling Green State University

Architecture Fast And Slow: Spatial And Material Procrastination, Sara Khorshidifard, Hannah Dewhirst

Sara Khorshidifard

At times when irresistible, all-accelerating technologies prompt normative social influences growing expectations
for speediness, architecture is not immune. This paper explores time-space speculations in the ambitious pursuits
of idealistically paced architectures. Outcomes present a palette of possibilities for discerning slow architecture as a paradigm. Grounding in the nature of design enticing postponements, the study explores, construes, and curates possibilities to bring in the advantage of slower thinking, sensing, making, and educating. Universal urges for speed are undeniable. Future of cities may also well remain digital with technologies persisting further impacts on limits and possibilities of all disciplines including architecture. What ...
