Paisley Mill

Welcome to Paisley Mill! A newly renovated stone mill which features a coffee shop with a bakery, a lounge space, and a hobby shop. I’ve decided to display my section at this location because it shows how the proposed bakery connects to the existing silo structure. The bakery proposal is the main highlight of my design. I specifically wanted to show the viewing window from the coffee shop into the bakery because this is the main feature that connects the two programs together. I am emphasizing the idea of connection with how the baked goods are made and being freshly …

The clients are looking to redesign their space with an elegant, contemporary, and sophisticated feel. The design must be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. They are particularly attracted to the "Parisian Style." Particularly, 19th- and early-20th-century architectural details were combined with contemporary elements. The entire design utilizes a clean and delicate colour palette, where simple lines and intricate details are combined.

Implementación De Herramientas Tecnológicas De Geolocalización Para Mejorar La Gestión De Residuos Sólidos En La Fase De Recolección Para La Universidad De La Salle Sede Candelaria, Daniela Delgado Morales, Maria Fernanda Moreno Bernal

Ingeniería Ambiental y Sanitaria

La gestión de residuos sólidos en la Universidad de la Salle, juega un papel particularmente importante dada la diversidad de temáticas abordadas por las carreras que en su mayoría tienen un componente práctico. Esto ha desencadenado un flujo considerable de personas en la sede Candelaria (que es la más compacta), y por ende requiere de la optimización y sistematización sobre todo de la fase de recolección de residuos.

La gestión de residuos es de gran importancia ya que de esto depende su aprovechamiento adecuado y por ende la segregación. Cabe resaltar que por el aumento de elementos de protección personal …

Relief Revival Reincarnation, Lisa Moon

Theses and Dissertations

what contributes to this reduced connectivity?

newman examined it from an architectural perspective, exterior elements of building, space designation, corridors, skip|stop elevators, circulation patterns, natural …


Taking Flight: An Independent Living Facility For Emancipated Foster Youth, Kristy McDaniel Leitzel 2022 Virginia Commonwealth University

Taking Flight: An Independent Living Facility For Emancipated Foster Youth, Kristy Mcdaniel Leitzel

Theses and Dissertations

Motivation

Many of us think about foster care in the context of younger children removed from home. However, little thought is given to youth that age out of the foster care system and the associated challenges and risks they face, namely in the area of housing.

Youth in foster care often receive minimal support in making the transition to independence and are frequently forced into instant adulthood. They are faced with an abrupt end of support at a time when they have not yet mastered the educational, social, or economic survival skills necessary to be independent in the community (Haas, …

Transdisciplinarity In Experience Design: A Global Survey Of Higher Ed Programs In Exd/Xd, Yvonne Houy

Creative Collaborations

In our age of ubiquitous devices and digital media it is the perceived value of the end-to-end experience that brings people to a place. Designing inspiring and emotionally engaging end-to-end experiences requires experts in a wide range of disciplines committed to an interdisciplinary collaboration that can arrive at transdisciplinary design - the sum becomes greater than its parts.

Civil engineering, hospitality, business, psychology, digital User Experience (UX) design, and experience data analysis need to be seamless integrated with the fine and performing arts and design fields:

  • Architecture, interior, landscape and sound design actively engage the senses.

  • Graphic and fine arts …


Agents At Work: Modeling How Space Can Influence People In The Workplace, Jovan Poposki 2022 Wilfrid Laurier University

Agents At Work: Modeling How Space Can Influence People In The Workplace, Jovan Poposki

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

People interact with space in ways that are important to consider when designing an office. Not considering this relationship has led to the dissatisfaction of employees post-occupancy. In this thesis, I present an agent-based model that incorporates several characteristics of agents, such as work ethic and sociability, and explores their behaviours and social interactions in the workplace. The model is first tested on a commercial workspace, varying agent parameters to see how they change the behaviour of the model. I find that agents with extreme personalities are happiest, and show a bimodality in the distribution of time spent in various …

Connections Exposed | A Library For The People, Stephanie Wilburn

Theses and Dissertations

MOTIVATION

The U.S. economy, democracy, and the health and happiness of citizens depends on maintaining social capital, the networks of bonds between community members. Social capital creates the trust that facilitates action and cooperation for mutual benefit. Since the 1960s, there has been a decline in-person socialization and social bonds both within and between demographic groups in the US resulting in reduced social capital (Putnam, 2000).

One measure to combat declining social capital is to create third places where incidental and repeated social interactions build and reinforce bonds between community members (Oldenburg, 1997).

With the reduction of accessible and inclusive …

Wood In The Built Environment: The Restorative Benefits Of Wood On Student Health And Well-Being, Samantha Mcnair

Featured Student Work

Reaching Canadian shores in March of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic relentlessly continues to impact life on a global scale. Post-secondary students have been especially hard hit throughout the pandemic, with the doors of many institutions still closed 20 months after the initial lockdowns. They have had to self-navigate the difficulties of remote learning while grappling with several negative health concerns associated with extended periods of time spent in artificial environments, such as social isolation, mental fatigue, increased stress, and low levels of motivation. This study seeks to determine how interior applications of wood can be used to improve the health …


Modular Interior Partitions In Commercial Housing: A Case Study, Adam David Meleo 2021 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Modular Interior Partitions In Commercial Housing: A Case Study, Adam David Meleo

Construction Management

The ability to modify an interior space with ease and reasonable cost is beneficial to designers, owners, and end-users. Modular interiors are not a new concept. Modular interior partitions can come in the form of Japanese Shoji screens, as well as folding walls that would be found in a convention center. While not new in concept, the market for products that allow partitioning an interior space with ease appears to be growing with the introduction of innovative products and solutions. This paper will focus on two student housing projects in San Luis Obispo, California, with regards to their design and …
