Research In User-Centered Design 2009 To 2018: A Systematic Keyword Network Analysis, Yongyeon Cho, Hye Jeong Park, Huiwon Lim

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

User-centered design (UCD) has become an important concept in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and other disciplines. While there is abundant UCD research, keyword analysis research has been less studied even though keywords are important for achieving better understanding of UCD. Therefore, this study provides keywords network a visual analysis of UCD articles published between 2009 and 2018 to answer the following questions: (1) What UCD-related keywords have been studied and in which disciplines? and (2) How have keywords been connected to on another? The study analyzed 304 keywords articles from IEEE, ACM, and ScienceDirect that included “UCD” in their titles. It ...


Shared Roots: An Examination Of The Interconnectedness Of Cultures And Nations Manifest Through Art And Design, Hannah Baldwin 2020 Utah State University

Shared Roots: An Examination Of The Interconnectedness Of Cultures And Nations Manifest Through Art And Design, Hannah Baldwin

Undergraduate Honors Capstone Projects

Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future.— Robert L. Peters

The way that people influence their surroundings through art and design is a fascinating lens through which to view culture and history. Visual arts, including architecture, illustrate how cultures meld and shape one another’s histories and values as they come in contact. Pattern making, in particular, is found in every culture as a way of recording and making sense of the patterns of life. This project seeks to highlight the interconnectedness of cultures by examining the history and cultures of three European countries through the lens ...


Wellness Design Assessment Criteria: Content Analysis Of Workplace Design Guidelines, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park 2020 Iowa State University

Wellness Design Assessment Criteria: Content Analysis Of Workplace Design Guidelines, Yongyeon Cho, Huiwon Lim, Hye Jeong Park

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

ISSUE & PURPOSE OF RESEARCH Recent studies have addressed that design elements can enhance users’ health and well-being in their workplaces. In creating a mindful workplace, designers commonly refer to evidence-based guidelines, evaluation tools, and rating systems to supports each user’s physical, emotional, and social wellness. Although many rating systems are useful to experts, the systems are challenging to laypersons to use because of text-based content with jargon and complexity. Moreover, many such systems don’t tend to support non-expert users’ awareness of designing a workplace because all design elements are equally weighted even though some design elements are more essential than others. For this limitation, we focus on a design rating system for workplaces. This study is designed with three parts: The purpose of the first study is to develop inclusive wellness design criteria for office environments; the second study is to understand current office user’s perception of wellness regarding design features; the third study is to build a new framework to create a real-time based user-friendly mobile application for evaluating office users’ wellness about design experiences. This study is the first part of a total of three parts.

Students’ Integrated Sensory Analysis Results: A Case Study Of The Main Lobby Area In College Buildings, Yongyeon Cho

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

ISSUE & PURPOSE A well-designed space influence on users’ overall positive sensory experience (Winer & Keim, 2018, August 7). Human sensory inputs have a stronger influence on both cognitive and emotional responses (Augustin et al., 2009) which closely related to design a learning environment. Although students’ sensory experiences are associated with their learning outcome, little research has been investigated student’s perception of sensory design elements in campus main lobby areas.

Undergraduate Educational Research Experiences In The Study Of Interior Design, Julia Virginia Pimentel Jiménez 2020 Western Michigan University

Undergraduate Educational Research Experiences In The Study Of Interior Design, Julia Virginia Pimentel Jiménez

Dissertations

Designers create social constructions (experiences and interactions) for human beings among themselves and with and within interior environments to enhance meaning in people´s lives (Poldma, 2011). Those social constructions are created through the design process developed by the interior designer; that process relies heavily on design research. Therefore, it is at the undergraduate level that the passion for research should start for interior design (ID) students. Faculty in ID programs need to encourage that passion by engage students in meaningful learning experiences such as how to ask questions about users, functions, activities, and aesthetics.

This study explored what types ...

Dredge The Foundry | For Dirt And Era, Woody Stauffer 2020 Fort Hays State University

Dredge The Foundry | For Dirt And Era, Woody Stauffer

Master's Theses

Billions of years are past us and billions of years await. Shaping earthen material into sculptural abstractions is my way to sense and convey the lethargic natural progression of the planet. Fossilization, rot, dirt, plant growth, animal existence, and rust are aesthetics I endow with new perspectives and form through mold making and casting. The dichotomy between the eons of time behind us and the endless possibility of a technological future has inspired the addition of a science fiction aesthetic. To rust these computerized constructed geometric forms demonstrates how futuristic ideals will also wither away. In many ways we are ...


Hidden Gem: Realizing The Value Of Community In Healthcare Environments, Nicole Lee 2020 Virginia Commonwealth University

Hidden Gem: Realizing The Value Of Community In Healthcare Environments, Nicole Lee

Theses and Dissertations

Holistic approaches in healthcare address a problem from its root causes. The American healthcare model – both its treatment and distribution methods – is among the many issues that divides the nation. We have found ourselves with millions of uninsured people among a growing population where chronic illness is on the rise among adults and children, especially within low-income demographics (Goodman & Conway, 2016). Though this is a widespread epidemic, only recently has there been any effort to question and reform traditional healthcare.

The way that wellness is assessed in America has been detrimental to patient outcomes. The over prescription of and dependency ...


Reclaiming Beercraft- A Sensory Experience, Zishan Zeng 2020 Virginia Commonwealth University

Reclaiming Beercraft- A Sensory Experience, Zishan Zeng

Theses and Dissertations

The senses are mainly a source of arousal, enjoyment and pain and are of vital importance for the human body. They are also important because sensory perception is typical of many cultural artifacts and is given unique intensities and extensions, shapes and meanings through them (Heywood, 2017). As Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa stated, “architecture is the art of reconciliation between ourselves and the world, and this mediation takes place through the senses” (Pallasmaa, 2012). To make architecture truly meaningful, it should be able to awaken all the senses.

The way we feel, smell, and even taste is hard to capture ...

Evidence-Based Design: Documenting A Research Experiment In A School Environment With Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Julie E. Irish 2019 Iowa State University

Evidence-Based Design: Documenting A Research Experiment In A School Environment With Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder, Julie E. Irish

Julie Elaine Irish

Purpose Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder affecting around 1:59 children. Among other characteristics, children with ASD can be unduly sensitive to elements in the built environment, such as noise or light. Despite this knowledge, to date there has been little evidence-based experimental research investigating how the environment affects them. The purpose of this paper is to conduct an experiment in a school environment with children with ASD and document the process as a model that other researchers could apply to similar studies.

Design/methodology/approach The study focused on whether the application of wayfinding aids (colored ...


Barriers: An Exploration Of Architectural Structures As An Indication Of Wealth And Socioeconomic Status, Lisa DeMoranville 2019 Union College - Schenectady, NY

Barriers: An Exploration Of Architectural Structures As An Indication Of Wealth And Socioeconomic Status, Lisa Demoranville

Honors Theses

I decided to explore the barriers and limitations of wealth through an investigation of architectural structures, focusing on popular industries and institutions on which our society commonly depends. I have noticed that places such as hospitals, schools, grocery stores, and restaurants differ dramatically depending on the neighborhoods in which they were located. This topic sparked my interest after living in Lima, Peru for a month, as I was able to observe the developing economy and dramatic division of wealth among the population. Certain questions about the divides and differences within a society and its culture started crossing my mind; not ...


Understanding Indian Interior Design Education: From The Indian Design Professionals' Perspective, Darshi Mody 2019 Thomas Jefferson University

Understanding Indian Interior Design Education: From The Indian Design Professionals' Perspective, Darshi Mody

Theses & Dissertations

Higher design education in India is not recognized as one of the major educational pathways, which has led to a system in which both public and private institutions offer design degrees without reference to fixed standards of curriculum and uniformity. There is also a lack of publicly available information and knowledge about design schools along with the immense complexity and diversity within the offerings of different design programs at various institutions (Coyle, Lotten, & Dubber, 2015). Prospective design students are at risk of pursuing courses of studies that neither adequately prepare nor credential them for professional work or graduate studies. There ...

Re-Purposing A Dead Mall Into An Art And Innovation Center, Veronika Gaska 2019 Western Montana College

Re-Purposing A Dead Mall Into An Art And Innovation Center, Veronika Gaska

Honors Theses

Many years ago, when the shopping industry was booming, shopping malls were being built one after another—more than were needed to support the population. They served as a hub for all kinds of people. But with time, the focus of the retail industry shifted to the convenience of online buying instead of in-store, which contributed in the lack of demand for retail stores, running them into the ground, and leaving the malls empty. Approximately 1/3 of the 1,200 malls in America are dead or dying. With malls emptying out, the future of these buildings comes into question ...


The Home As An Object: Material Culture In The Age Of Ikea, Maxwell Harling Fertik 2019 Trinity College

The Home As An Object: Material Culture In The Age Of Ikea, Maxwell Harling Fertik

Senior Theses and Projects

The curiosity of everyday objects looms large in every human’s life. And naturally, these objects are almost as diverse in character as the person who bought them. This variation can be in style, period, shape, origin but also in the arrangement it is given in relation to other objects or persons in a space. On one level, the objects we surround ourselves with are meaningless, purely functional, utilitarian and banal. Especially on a budget, one may not consider aesthetic or design issues at all and purely buy a toaster because they want toast. Why would one buy a SMEG ...


Assessment Tool For Users’ Experience In Healthcare Settings, Yongyeon Cho, Jihyun Song 2019 Iowa State University

Assessment Tool For Users’ Experience In Healthcare Settings, Yongyeon Cho, Jihyun Song

Interior Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

Issue: In creating notable experiences for patients in healthcare settings, design components are critical in offering psychological support surrounding patients’ expectations with respect to the level of clinical care (Dilani, 2008; Knudson, 2017). A growing body of research maintains that healthcare design strategies influence patients’ health outcomes and wellness (Devlin & Arneill, 2003; Laursen, et al, 2014). While evidence-based design has been studied through post-occupancy evaluation of overall facility design of clinics and other spaces such as inpatient rooms (Quan et al, 2017), little research has focused on evaluating users’ physical and emotional well-being, and social interaction that inform wellness-design features. Therefore, the ...
