Improving The Design Quality Of Housing Buildings, Ehab Nasr Elden Ahmed Aug 2020

Improving The Design Quality Of Housing Buildings, Ehab Nasr Elden Ahmed

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Design quality is essential to improve the standards of living and is progressively being accepted as critical to successful new housing developments. A better design quality provides attractive and sensitively planned homes that form communities, and assists in creating a healthier and advanced fellowship. As new housing growth in Egypt has missed reaching the universal rules and guidelines of design quality, this research reviews several experiences of foreign offices and governmental programs that deal with amending the design character of housing buildings. Using these Guidelines enables commissioning high performance housing facilities that improve the general standards of a better design ...

Investigations Of Mycelium As A Low-Carbon Building Material, Kevin Yang Jun 2020

Investigations Of Mycelium As A Low-Carbon Building Material, Kevin Yang

ENGS 88 Honors Thesis (AB Students)

With the building industry being responsible for 39% of global carbon emissions, there is an imperative need for low-carbon solutions that can decarbonize the built environment. This thesis aimed to address whether mycelium, the hyphal body of fungi, can be used as a building material. The first part of research involved developing a protocol for creating and testing mycelium samples. Mycelium composites were created by inoculating strains of mycelium onto agricultural substrates such as walnut shells, rice hulls, and a commercially available mix from Ecovative Design LLC. Mechanical compression and tensile tests, as well as thermal conductivity and fire resistance ...

For Sale Or Rent: Preventing Demolition By Neglect In Iowa's Downtowns, Dustin Lee Ingram Jan 2019

For Sale Or Rent: Preventing Demolition By Neglect In Iowa's Downtowns, Dustin Lee Ingram

Creative Components

The National Trust for Historic Preservation describes demolition by neglect as “an epidemic within historic areas and a challenging issue for state and local authorities.” For small towns in social and economic distress, downtown buildings present opportunities for community renewal given their historic and cultural importance, yet it is in these towns where building neglect often results in nuisance-laden commercial districts and the demolition of built assets. The State of Iowa recognized the pervasiveness of this problem by offering financial assistance to cities with competitive applications, but this alone is not a remedy. Through participant observation and the Community Capitals ...

Hatch Is Hatch: Building Building Drawings, Thomas Kuei Apr 2018

Hatch Is Hatch: Building Building Drawings, Thomas Kuei

Architecture Senior Theses

The hatch is a series of marks on a page laid out systematically. It is a representational technique that has evolved, taken up different values, and has been utilized in different ways over time as technologies and practices changed. Today, the hatch is used symbolically as a way of communicating a drawing and has no direct relationship to the represented subject. However, by looking back at drawing practices, we start to understand the hatch has material consequences and is no longer solely illusory. The act of making a mark allows for the process to be read in the final image ...
