Transportation Related Challenges For Persons' With Disabilities Social Participation, Graydon Bascom 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 ...

Recreation Community Branding: A Comparative Analysis Within Utah’S Wasatch Front, Lynda D. D. Smith 2017 Utah State University

Recreation Community Branding: A Comparative Analysis Within Utah’S Wasatch Front, Lynda D. D. Smith

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This study demonstrates the role recreational amenities play in contributing to the brand identity and sense of place in Utah master planned communities (MPCs). These MPCs are designed to enable residents to live, work, and play within close proximity within a styled built environment. While the built environment is often branded with a particular identity, these identities resonates with other attributes of the community, including recreation amenities. The study focused on MPCs along the Wasatch Front in Utah, since Utah’s population, along the Wasatch Front, is expected to double by 2050 (Envision Utah, n.d.). Many of the developments ...

Wall Panel Optimization For Refugee Shelters In Germany: An Ahp Study, Zhu Jiadong

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The German government is experiencing difficulties housing and assimilating Syrian refugees in its borders. Erecting temporary shelters on location is one way to deal with the current crises. This thesis attempts to use Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to determine the optimum combination of materials and construction methods to be used in the shelter’s walls in order to improve the living conditions of the refugees and to ensure that the cost is acceptable to the German government. This thesis compares six existing wall panel products from China, which have the lowest cost on the worldwide market. The R-value, strength, price ...

The Modern Elements Inside Moorish Spatial Design, faris turkistani 2017 Kent State University

The Modern Elements Inside Moorish Spatial Design, Faris Turkistani

Undergraduate Research Symposium

For the duration of 700 years part of the Iberian Peninsula was ruled by Muslims under the name of Al-Andalus. In that period a unique architectural vernacular was established combining the traditional Islamic architecture from cities such as, Damascus, Cairo, and Baghdad, with the locals who have better familiarity with the properties of the land. This combination produced buildings that successfully address the site and its surroundings, and create a healthy, comfortable, and aesthetically unique architecture.

This architectural combination resulted in innovative methods of designing the spatial qualities that was a vast improvement over the architecture of Visigoth. The courtyard ...


Composite Materials In Architecture, Connor Kaldor 2017 Kent State University

Composite Materials In Architecture, Connor Kaldor

Undergraduate Research Symposium

Fiber reinforced polymer is one of hundreds of new materials and finishes nested under the term “composite materials”. This relatively new material offers architects and engineers the opportunity to take advantage of the qualities of dissimilar materials at the same time. Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are made by combining glass or carbon fiber with epoxy or plastic resin to create durable and flexible panels, rods, beams, ect. FRP is waterproof, due to their composition and lately have even been applied to a fire-resistant octagonal mesh system. FRPs are also sustainable; LEED has certified them as an option for sustainable building ...


Miguel Fisac's Direct Influence In Modern Spanish Architecture Through Concrete Innovation, Jessica Schultz 2017 Kent State University

Miguel Fisac's Direct Influence In Modern Spanish Architecture Through Concrete Innovation, Jessica Schultz

Undergraduate Research Symposium

During the late 1900’s, Spain encountered a new spirit and sense of optimism, one phase of which was ushered in by Franco’s dictablanda. This new leniency allowed for more freedom in not only politics or social constructs, but also architecture. One very obvious example of this optimism in architecture is illustrated through Miguel Fisac’s bone architecture.

Miguel Fisac searched for innovative ways to create architectural and structural details. His bone-like structures varied in size depending on the building, but Fisac’s architecture always embodied a natural sense of structure, due to his continued use of hollow prestressed ...

Triptych, Joshua Broadway, Bob Condia, Frederik Heuser, Lindsey Leardi, Kelsey Middelkamp, Joshua Ralls, Lucille Sadlon

NPP eBooks

Our desire is for this publication to be at the intersection of architecture and neuroscience; where the convergence of architecture (the art of building) and neuroscience (the biology of the brain) is aesthetic experience.

The biology of the brain returns architecture to a biological foundation of mood and atmosphere. As architecture students, the more we learn about architecture in terms of a sensory experience, the better we can design. Just as we learn architecture by doing it, flickering between theory and practice, by dancing between thinking and feeling, so can we learn any subject.

This publication is the product of ...
