Fort Wayne As Text: The Past Welcoming The Present, Jeff Valliere, Kevin Villela 2011 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne As Text: The Past Welcoming The Present, Jeff Valliere, Kevin Villela

2011 IPFW Student Research and Creative Endeavor Symposium

Although cities change and progress with each passing day, it is important to look back to their history and consider how these communities developed. Important also, is the way we define community: a group, which seeks to inspire, educate, and elevate all of its individuals, who share a common space and/or interest; thus, a team of people working together for the benefit of all. One of the most prominent characteristics that Fort Wayne and Chicago share is that every new chapter of their growth incorporates their rich history. More specifically, much like Chicago, the new and developing architecture and ...


Fort Wayne Parks: Nothing To Play Around With, Amy Schwarz, Srilatha Dasari 2011 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne Parks: Nothing To Play Around With, Amy Schwarz, Srilatha Dasari

2011 IPFW Student Research and Creative Endeavor Symposium

Fort Wayne and Chicago are often viewed as very dissimilar cities. To explore these differences, the Chapman Scholars of IPFW took a trip to Chicago from October 9th-11th. In Chicago, our group experienced differences and parallels in community, architecture, and lifestyle. In conjunction with this trip, we have also been exploring Fort Wayne and have made observations in these same areas. Through our examination, we have noticed that the parks of Fort Wayne and Chicago are viewed in very different ways and play varying roles. The decision to make parks the focus of our studies stemmed from our upbringing in ...


Healthcare Design: Designing Healthier And Happier Environments For Patient Care, Caitlin E. Charles 2011 Olivet Nazarene University

Healthcare Design: Designing Healthier And Happier Environments For Patient Care, Caitlin E. Charles

Honors Program Projects

This paper will discuss research regarding the best practices in developing a healthy environment in a medical facility in order to better aid the recovery of patients and help facilitate a more efficient work environment for the nursing staff. Medical facility design will be discussed in terms of safety and infection control; the psychological effects of certain design elements on patients; and appropriate accommodations for patients, staff, and family.

The research discussed has been used to develop an updated and healthy environment for the Olivet Nazarene University Virtual Learning Center (VLC) housed in Wisner Hall of Nursing Education. This paper ...

Cycling Without Spandex: A Transdisciplinary Approach To Design, Jess Garnitz 2011 Syracuse University

Cycling Without Spandex: A Transdisciplinary Approach To Design, Jess Garnitz

Architecture Thesis Prep

"Engaging with other disciplines is important to designers today as the nature of problems and issues are becoming more complex."

"The problem of integrating bicycles into our city streets is inherently a problem that requires transdisciplinary work. This is because of the complexity of the problem and the numerous areas affected through the integration. The problem is like an interconnected web of relations. There are issues relating to wayfinding and understanding how to get from destination to destination, which relate to issues of speed and non-verbal communication."


Vernacular Grounds: A Process Of Observation, Peter P. Goché 2011 Iowa State University

Vernacular Grounds: A Process Of Observation, Peter P. Goché

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This presentation will consider the role of observation in an interdisciplinary practice that seeks to comprehend the experiential nature of place and, thereby, unfold a more acute view of the world. My perspective is anthropological with specific interest in material culture, ritual and vernacular grounds. Like the anthropologist, the architect develops an understanding of the nature of lived space, not by imposing a theory, but by letting the revelation derive from the act of recording observations.i An act to which I refer as staging; the assembly of a framework used in reconstructing the nature of place. This process of ...


Interrogating Perspective, James M. Spiller 2011 Iowa State University

Interrogating Perspective, James M. Spiller

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The guides which built much of the last five centuries of architecture will never be seen. The construction lines projected from one drawing type to the next dissipated as the forms they buttressed emerged. Projections, which have been quietly guiding the geometry of architecture for centuries, have remained an untapped design resource for too long. Lines scaffold the architect’s design process; ideas emerge through action and reaction. The construction lines frame potential represented space, which are projected from one drawing type to the next in order to clarify a proposed spatial construct. Projection, a method of dimensional drawing translation ...

From Fail-Safe To Safe-To-Fail: Sustainability And Resilience In The New Urban World, Jack F. Ahern 2011 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

From Fail-Safe To Safe-To-Fail: Sustainability And Resilience In The New Urban World, Jack F. Ahern

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

Abstract: The extent to which the 21st Century world will be "sustainable" depends in large part on the sustainability of cities. Early ideas on implementing sustainability focused on concepts of achieving stability, practicing effective management and the control of change and growth-- a "fail-safe" mentality. More recent thinking about change, disturbance, uncertainty, and adaptability is fundamental to the emerging science of resilience, the capacity of systems to reorganize and recover from change and disturbance without changing to other states-- in other words, systems that are "safe to fail." While the concept of resilience is intellectually intriguing, it remains largely unpracticed ...

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

This report documents the work of the Graduate Urban Design Studio in Springfield’s Old Hill and Six Corners neighborhoods with 12,000 inhabitants. Both neighborhoods are challenged by a very low average household income, housing foreclosures, lot vacancies, lack of substantial home ownership, high traffic volumes and poor quality of open space. The primary goal of the project was to develop a vision to renew Old Hill and Six Corners to improve livability for their residents and create new opportunities for housing, recreation, working and commercial activities. Crucial keys to attaining this goal will be creating a stronger sense ...


Adopting Game Technology For Architectural Visualization, Scott A. Schroeder 2011 Purdue University

Adopting Game Technology For Architectural Visualization, Scott A. Schroeder

Department of Computer Graphics Technology Degree Theses

Current methods to display a new home in the architectural visualization industry involve long render times and hundreds of frames that require rendering. Many times, these virtual tours that are produced are slow, methodical, and limit the viewer's perspective of the home. This research looks into using computer game engines to display the virtual tour in real time, thus removing the long render time requirements and limited viewer perspective.


Re: Integrated Identity: The Spatially Defined Ground Place In Social Housing, Katie Lynn Carroll 2011 Syracuse University

Re: Integrated Identity: The Spatially Defined Ground Place In Social Housing, Katie Lynn Carroll

Architecture Master Theses

"In this thesis project I propose that a re-integrated identity for social housing projects can evolve through a spatially defined and sequenced ground plane that is activated through a program response to current demographics within an existing community. This definition and re-organization of the ground plane occurs from an analysis of the surrounding community fabric and the existing community identity and demographics."


Reclaiming Vieques, Angela Albela 2011 Syracuse University

Reclaiming Vieques, Angela Albela

Architecture Senior Theses

" The physical environment at any point in history is the result of all the various events of the history of that place prior to that moment. It tends to manifest itself as a palimpsest of artifacts and mentifacts. It is my contention that architecture has the capacity to create a space of education and reflection about history. The objective of this process is to create an architecture that reclaims and presents the history that may have vanished. "
