Bonding Space, Legacy, Light And Scale, Jassim Al Nashmi 2012 Iowa State University

Bonding Space, Legacy, Light And Scale, Jassim Al Nashmi

Datum: student journal of architecture

Columbus is about community; this is its identity and bonding is what makes it last. The legacy of Columbus’ innovations in industry and architecture has shaped the community and has had significant positive impact on the people’s pride towards the city.


Mississippi Houseboat, Jonathan Bassett 2012 Iowa State University

Mississippi Houseboat, Jonathan Bassett

Datum: student journal of architecture

The Houseboat plays off of the Boathouse in many different ways. It was designed to be dragged up the creek from the Boathouse and anchored in any number of lakes and ponds in the wetland area which allows the user to be even more enthralled with the back-country environment.


Emerge, Dane Buchholz 2012 Iowa State University

Emerge, Dane Buchholz

Datum: student journal of architecture

The boathouse project began with a field study to the Mississippi River. On this trip, I examined the edge of the water and how it related to the land in section, plan, and physical conditions. Upon returning I had a good understanding of how land transitions to water.


Hinged Compatability, Erica Fischer 2012 Iowa State University

Hinged Compatability, Erica Fischer

Datum: student journal of architecture

Is the color green both blue and yellow or neither blue nor yellow? Is a forty-five degree angle both horizontal and vertical or neither horizontal nor vertical? This idea is explored in a Kansas City Museum building form, and circulation.


Boston Jazz Center, Mitch Hartig, Jason Kruse, Sam Mulholland 2012 Iowa State University

Boston Jazz Center, Mitch Hartig, Jason Kruse, Sam Mulholland

Datum: student journal of architecture

Located at the crossroads of Boston’s central business district and the North End neighborhood, the Boston Jazz Center focuses attention on the local social stratification, historic Haymarket (open-air fish market) and the new Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.


Columbus Museum Of Industrial And Design Objects, Joey Hersheway, Jasmine Singh 2012 Iowa State University

Columbus Museum Of Industrial And Design Objects, Joey Hersheway, Jasmine Singh

Datum: student journal of architecture

The Columbus Museum of Industrial + Design Objects offers a range of experiences between individual and collective spaces. Individual spaces, which evoke a self-contained atmosphere, offer an intimate dialogue with light, shadow, and designed objects. And collective spaces, that facilitate a more interactive experience with the objects and other users.


Museum Of Crafted Innovation And Assembly, John Kerner 2012 Iowa State University

Museum Of Crafted Innovation And Assembly, John Kerner

Datum: student journal of architecture

The museum creates multiple reveals, physical and experiential. A site reveal of the neighboring iconic architecture of I.M. Pei and Eliel Saarinen create a focal point of clustered buildings around the threshold to the exhibit spaces. The occupant is then subjected to the experience of full scale assembly lines and craftsmen shops. True innovation, systemic, rather than object, is emphasized in the embodied process of making.


Pins N' Needles, Julia Kuhn 2012 Iowa State University

Pins N' Needles, Julia Kuhn

Datum: student journal of architecture

The focus of the Berlin studio was solar radiation and building envelope design in response to radiation. Solar radiation and building design relationships were studied in the German cities of Berlin, Hamburg, and Dessau as precedents for a building envelope design. Our objective in this studio was to design a building envelope with an energy efficient, carbon-neutral footprint.


Anti-Site Architecture And The Vernacular, Alex Olevitch 2012 Iowa State University

Anti-Site Architecture And The Vernacular, Alex Olevitch

Datum: student journal of architecture

A building must react to its site. That is generally agreed upon within the architecture community. Architects derive so much of their design from intense site analysis. So what happens when a building is designed without site? What does it mean to be site-less? Or even one-step further, architecture that rejects site entirely – anti-site architecture.


Jazz And Experimental Music Center, Andrew Mixdorf 2012 Iowa State University

Jazz And Experimental Music Center, Andrew Mixdorf

Datum: student journal of architecture

When asked to create a Jazz and Experimental Music Center at one of three downtown Boston, MA sites, we chose to situate our Jazz Center within the downtown cultural district. Our Jazz Center’s close relation to other performance venues and the site’s surrounding nightlife offerings and heavy pedestrian traffic would attract more visitors, and help attract a new demographic of jazz music patrons.


House Boat, Alex Olevitch 2012 Iowa State University

House Boat, Alex Olevitch

Datum: student journal of architecture

This project attempted to tie together two sets of contrasts — departure and return, temporary and permanent. As the project progressed I realized how closely related these two really are.


Composing The Act: Boston, Ma, Alex Michl 2012 Iowa State University

Composing The Act: Boston, Ma, Alex Michl

Datum: student journal of architecture

Concept_ In the social world of performance, the act of being seen is as important as the act of seeing. By manipulating the site plane and programmatic spaces in elevation, we created a stage of circulation in which the viewer observes both the act and the actors simultaneously.


Columbus Cultural Campus, Justin Wang 2012 Iowa State University

Columbus Cultural Campus, Justin Wang

Datum: student journal of architecture

Placed near the heart of active downtown Columbus, the project is conceived not simply as a building or museum, but as a campus for celebration of Columbus: its people; its culture; its artifacts; and its symbiotic mix of art, architecture, and industry.

Nsidc Green Data Center Project: Coolerado And Modeling An Application Of The Maisotsenko Cycle, Benjamin Weerts 2012 University of Colorado at Boulder

Nsidc Green Data Center Project: Coolerado And Modeling An Application Of The Maisotsenko Cycle, Benjamin Weerts

Civil Engineering Graduate Theses & Dissertations

The National Snow and Ice Data Center recently replaced its traditional cooling system with a new air conditioning system that utilizes an economizer and Coolerado air conditioning units. These units represent one of the first commercially available applications of the Maisotsenko cooling cycle. A datalogging system was installed that measured the data center’s power consumption before and after the cooling system was replaced. This data was organized and used to prove a 90% cooling energy reduction for the NSIDC. The data logging system also collected temperatures and humidities of inlet and outlet air of a Coolerado air conditioner. After ...


Culture Reflections Embodied In Modern Architecture: An Analysis Symbolic Meanings Of Classical Chinese Garden Design Elements And Principles, Suining Ding 2012 Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne

Culture Reflections Embodied In Modern Architecture: An Analysis Symbolic Meanings Of Classical Chinese Garden Design Elements And Principles, Suining Ding

Visual Communication and Design Faculty Presentations

When people walk into a space or built environment, people should feel the design intention made manifest through visual cues. Amos Rapoport stated that the built environment holds meaning as part of a cultural system of symbols, and influences our actions and our determinations of social order [4]. It also has been a consensus that designers must understand the effect of the physical manifestation of design on people in the body of knowledge of the interior design profession [2]. Therefore, understanding the symbolic meanings conveyed by design elements become crucial for designers. This paper presents a case study of analysis ...

Salve Regina University Tree Inventory And Management Plan 2012, Bartlett Tree Experts

Archives Books

The Bartlett Inventory Solutions Team from Bartlett Tree Experts conducted an inventory of trees on the campus of Salve Regina University in May 2012. The inventory included: identifying trees and attaching to each tree a tag with an assigned tag number; identifying the trees' condition, health, and vigor; recommending risk evaluations and removals of appropriate trees; recommending pruning, soil management, and pest management treatments to promote tree safety; health, appearance, and longevity; and mapping the trees using GPSr hardware and Geographic Information System (GIS) software.
