Feminist And Green Design: New Aesthetics Or New Ethics?, Tripti Upreti Apr 2017

Feminist And Green Design: New Aesthetics Or New Ethics?, Tripti Upreti

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

Design has influenced our lives in many ways, from impacting our environment to altering human behavior. We will discuss two of the approaches to Socially Responsible Design, fulfilling the requirements of sustainability- Green Design and Feminist Design. Green Design has been implemented to minimize the harmful effects on human health and environment, thus to make our planet more sustainable. Feminist Design, on the other hand, caters to the significance of women’s role in the society, where male dominance is prevalent. We will also address the discourse of inequality and its relation to cultural adaptations. Social Responsible Design has not ...

Exurban Residents’ Perceptions Of Naturally Returning Predators: Connecticut Case Study, Margaret E. Sackrider, Susan G. Clark, Isaac M. Ortega Sep 2014

Exurban Residents’ Perceptions Of Naturally Returning Predators: Connecticut Case Study, Margaret E. Sackrider, Susan G. Clark, Isaac M. Ortega

Yale Day of Data

As a result of reforestation, growth of exurban areas and wildlife adaptation, it is believed that the public is currently encountering more human-wildlife conflicts than ever before. The key to balancing wildlife conservation and human development is understanding the dynamic relationship between humans and carnivores. Specifically, gaining insight into the complexity of this relationship will aide in the creation of more effective conservation policy and outreach.

Reforestation throughout Connecticut has supported a tremendous population growth of pray species and subsequently the growth of predator populations including coyotes, Canis latrans, and black bears, Ursus americanus. According to some biologists, the state ...

Container Plants For Desert Restoration, David A. Bainbridge Jan 2013

Container Plants For Desert Restoration, David A. Bainbridge

David A Bainbridge

Container planting is essential for most desert restoration work because direct seeding is rarely successful. The containers best suited for desert planting are often taller (deeper) to facilitate root development. Fertilizer management, inoculation, irrigation and pruning can be used to maximize root growth with minimal shoot development.


Can We Teach Lean Construction Methods In Schools Of Architecture, Gary Graham Nov 2012

Can We Teach Lean Construction Methods In Schools Of Architecture, Gary Graham

Fall 2012 Faculty Showcase

Traditionally, schools of architecture are not great laboratories to explore the collaborative processes and teamwork that are essential to integrated design and delivery practices as exemplified by Lean Construction. The pre-eminence of the “hero-architect” in the design studio is in direct conflict with methods that can reduce risk and improve the efficiency of the design and construction delivery process. Risk? Efficiency? Delivery Process?... not mention Cost Control, Schedule and Constructability, are foreign concepts to the predominant design studio culture.

Integrated practices and integrated project delivery are clearly “hot” topics in the design and construction industry today. They are a response ...
