An Interview With Luce Irigaray On Through Vegetal Being: Two Philosophical Perspectives And Sexuate Difference, Andrea S. Wheeler Dec 2017

An Interview With Luce Irigaray On Through Vegetal Being: Two Philosophical Perspectives And Sexuate Difference, Andrea S. Wheeler

Architecture Publications

In this interview the philosopher Luce Irigaray discusses her book Through Vegetal Being. In response to questions, she distinguishes the human relationship to the environment and to other human beings. She describes how we must change our manner of relating to nature, beginning with our own: to learning how to coexist as a natural being among others instead of dominating the natural world. We must cultivate our instincts, free ourselves from traditions and elaborate a new education and sociocultural order and it is then that we will perceive that we cannot share with plants and animals all that we can ...


How Do Designers Of The Built Environment Attempt To Make Ecological Sustainability Sensory Legible?, Carly L. Bartow Dec 2016

How Do Designers Of The Built Environment Attempt To Make Ecological Sustainability Sensory Legible?, Carly L. Bartow

Architecture Undergraduate Honors Theses

This paper attempts to provide a theoretical framework for making ecosystem function and ecologically sustainable design more perceptible or sensible to people through architecture and the built environment. Design features of the Bertschi School Science Wing and the Bullitt Center in Seattle, Washington are incorporated to illustrate the sensory legibility of ecological sustainability criteria.The criteria are available to designers to help educate a building's occupants on environmentally sustainable design and motivate more sustainable behavior.


Transforming The Wku Office Of Sustainability's Front Yard Into An Edible Landscape, Alexandra Hezik Aug 2016

Transforming The Wku Office Of Sustainability's Front Yard Into An Edible Landscape, Alexandra Hezik

Mahurin Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

Since moving to 503 Regents Avenue in Fall 2013, the WKU Office of Sustainability has served as a sustainable best practices demonstration home for the WKU and Bowling Green communities. Not only does the house in which the Office of Sustainability is located serve as an educational tool for people, but also the landscape. In May 2014, the WKU Community Garden was established in the backyard. The transformation of the Office of Sustainability’s front lawn into an edible landscape began on April 1, 2015. The purpose of this project is to demonstrate an alternative to conventional lawns.


Biostead Initiative: A Transdisciplinary Initiative To Construct Safe-To- Fail Green Buildings As Sustainable Development Research Sites On University Campuses, Jose Lasalle, Ezra Marcus, Josh Nolan, Yamaan Ziade, Brandon Curtin Jan 2016

Biostead Initiative: A Transdisciplinary Initiative To Construct Safe-To- Fail Green Buildings As Sustainable Development Research Sites On University Campuses, Jose Lasalle, Ezra Marcus, Josh Nolan, Yamaan Ziade, Brandon Curtin

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Mutually arising with the continuing shift in control over resources, markets and technology to transnational corporations is the need to cultivate a global system of localized economies that root economic power and environmental responsibility in self-reliant people and communities (Korten, 1996). Adopting the modus operandi of centralization has effected a myriad of issues, including: peak oil, peak water, food insecurity and an impending food crisis, a deteriorating single-purpose infrastructure, economic instability and ecological devastation (Ahern, 2014, p. 2; Korten, 1996; Gunders, 2012, p.1; Hellwinckel & Ugarte, 2009; McLennan, 2006, p. 9). For instance, in the process of farmto- fork, the modern industrial ...
