Visualizing The Operative And Managing Complexity: Communicating The Design-Fabrication Feedback Loop With The International Tile Industry, 2022 University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Visualizing The Operative And Managing Complexity: Communicating The Design-Fabrication Feedback Loop With The International Tile Industry, Josh Vermillion
School of Architecture faculty members Joshua Vermillion and Paul Morrison led a multi-disciplinary group of students from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Theater in a design-build elective, sponsored entirely by companies in the tile and coverings industry. The key to these sorts of collaborations between industry and academe is to see the production, fabrication, and assembly process as something that can inform design, and as a result, the design can augment production by strategic design decision-making. This feedback loop, connecting both ends of the design-production continuum, can yield interesting design research questions. One such question arose repeatedly throughout this semester of …

Iterating The Design Process Using Ai Diffusion Models, 2022 University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Iterating The Design Process Using Ai Diffusion Models, Josh Vermillion
These studies span research and creative work to interrogate the generative capacity of text-to-image diffusion models that leverage artificial intelligence to produce architectural concepts, ideas, and imagery. These systems can generate an enormous amount of imagery in a very short amount of time based entirely from the written word, and we are still just beginning to understand how these digital tools might augment and/or disrupt, both, the design process, and design pedagogy within the discipline of architecture.
These AI models occupy a quickly evolving technology space with tremendous implications for how we design, as well as how we visualize—and verbalize—our …

The Saudi Households’ Requirements Of Dwelling Unit’S Components: A Case Study Of Riyadh, 2022 King Saud University
The Saudi Households’ Requirements Of Dwelling Unit’S Components: A Case Study Of Riyadh, Ahmed Abdullah Alghamdi, Ali Salem Bahammam
Emirates Journal for Engineering Research
Due to the large number of dwelling’s components and their big sizes, the size of a single-family dwelling in Saudi Arabia is big, which leads it to high costs. Such phenomenon has been shaped by the society during the period of economic ease, when easy access to free grants of residential plot and affordable Real Estate Development Fund loans were available, which later has been continued through the regulations of land division and building.
The study aims to determine the real needs (of the dwelling’s components, their number, and their areas), of the Saudi households who are wishing to …
Skilled Labor Challenges And Automation In The Construction Industry, 2022 University of Nebraska at Kearney
Skilled Labor Challenges And Automation In The Construction Industry, Olugbenro Ogunrinde, Rapheal Ojelabi, Opeyemi Oyeyipo
Mountain Plains Business Conference
The construction industry remains one of the most labor-intensive industries worldwide, creating an average gross domestic product (GDP) of 8% for the global economy and helping reduce unemployment. However, the last few years have brought a plague of skilled labor shortage and retirement, the most recent pandemic also playing a part in hastening retirement due to the present age cohort (baby boomers). Therefore, the need to begin to source viable alternatives to mitigate these issues that could be catastrophic is critical. One possible option is automation, but the industry remains lethargic toward innovation adoption and its use. Past and present …

The Museum As Object Of Display: Experiencing The Ashmolean, 2022 University of Oxford
The Museum As Object Of Display: Experiencing The Ashmolean, Jack Z. Chen
Armstrong Undergraduate Journal of History
Conventionally, museums are most often considered as a series of objects displayed, but I argue that the museum itself should be seen, first and foremost, as the object on display. The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, built at the high tide of British Imperialism, is a very interesting case study. Interested in its engagement with its own past, I do not seek to investigate the actions it takes as an institution, for instance, as regards to the politics of repatriation. Instead, I want to explore the whole experience it facilitates as an object in its own right.
This experience begins with …
