City Of San Luis Obispo, Open Space Survey, William W. Riggs, Megyn Rugh, Camille Jackson, Kelsey Stefen, Lance Knox 2015 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

City Of San Luis Obispo, Open Space Survey, William W. Riggs, Megyn Rugh, Camille Jackson, Kelsey Stefen, Lance Knox

City & Regional Planning Studios and Projects

The City of San Luis Obispo (SLO) has eleven official public open spaces. Managing these places presents a challenge in providing top-tier environmental stewardship, while also accommodating passive recreational use and access, in an era of fiscal limitations and competing priorities. Given that reality and the changing population dynamics in the US, providing equal access to these facilities is of increasing importance, whether by car, bike, on foot or via public transit. These open spaces provide value (environmental, economic and social) primarily to residents, as well as visitors, and gaining a data-driven understanding of that value was a primary goal ...


Synthesizing Critical Thinking, Theory, Creativity, And Process In A Design Studio: A Need For A New Computer-Learning Tool For Interior Design, Lori A. Brunner 2015 Iowa State University

Synthesizing Critical Thinking, Theory, Creativity, And Process In A Design Studio: A Need For A New Computer-Learning Tool For Interior Design, Lori A. Brunner

Lori Brunner Stone

Design students may be obtaining a broad range of knowledge in their university experience, but there needs to be a more explicit integration of their growing knowledge base with a systematic method of thinking, understanding, exploring and applying in the interior design studio. Thus, the design studio provides a venue and an instructional technology tool provides the means of integrating these activities. The purpose of this presentation is threefold. First, to lay the foundation for this hypothesis and provide guidance for developing an instructional tool, a brief overview of interior design trends, systems thinking and design process paradigms are outlined ...

Designing A Child Participated Building Evaluation Tool: A Review Of Literature (Naghmeh Pak And Andrea Wheeler), Andrea S. Wheeler, Naghmeh Pak

Andrea S. Wheeler

Because the foundation of an individual’s health and well-being is laid in their childhood, evaluating health and comfort factors in the environments in which children live is essential. Children have a different perspective on design quality and define comfort differently from that of adults, but schools are generally designed without consultation with children. School is a designed setting that a child resides in on a daily basis, and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child argues that it is simply a matter of a child’s right to be consulted about his or her day-to-day environment ...

Gentrification And Community Development Groups: Boston Area, Aqsa Butt 2015 University of Massachusetts- Amherst

Gentrification And Community Development Groups: Boston Area, Aqsa Butt

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

Gentrification plays a significant role in the Boston area. Its influx of affluent residents benefits those who are economically stable. There is considerable increase in housing costs and in property value for locals that may contribute to their housing insecurity. Community Development groups assist lower income residents that may lack guidance, social, economic, and political power to address issues that arise with subsidized housing.

An analysis of vulnerable populations in Boston: elderly, poor, minorities, homeless, substance dependents, and the disabled, reveal a challenge for Community Development Groups: gentrification contributes to housing insecurity of local residents. The city needs to redefine ...

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Studio and Student Research and Creative Activity

The senior undergraduate, Bachelors of Landscape Architecture studio at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst developed a town-wide greenway plan for the Town of Framingham’s Department of Community and Economic Development. This conceptual plan connects the town’s natural, cultural, and recreational resources through a network of pedestrian and bike trails. This plan also seeks to connect the diverse neighborhoods within the Town to these resources and provide alternative means of local residents to access jobs, schools, and retail centers. The greenway plan builds on Framingham’s Open Space and Recreation Plan (2013), which identified the need for a regional ...

The following report documents the work of the 2015 Spring Graduate Urban Design Studio course in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning. This fourteen week studio focused on using tactical urbanism to engage Springfield’s Metro Center neighborhood with visions to revitalize the downtown core of this legacy city.

In addition to completing the components of a traditional urban design studio (site analyses, schematic plans, spatial designs, and programming), the student teams also developed conceptual projects to immediately engage the public. These efforts culminated in a free afternoon walking tour throughout the Metro Center that presented several tactical ...

Visual Translation Of Urban Typography, Fahinaz Ferdous 2015 Purdue University

Visual Translation Of Urban Typography, Fahinaz Ferdous

Open Access Theses

This paper focuses on aspects that can be looked upon in translating typography found in the urban environment of Dhaka and Chicago, how we can relate and interpret typography with the help of contextual design elements, images as well as historic references. Layers behind perception of typefaces, variation in the geographic location of two cities moreover the cultural differences make it an even more interesting subject matter to examine.


Modeling Person-To-Person Contaminant Transport In Enclosed Environments, Chun Chen 2015 Purdue University

Modeling Person-To-Person Contaminant Transport In Enclosed Environments, Chun Chen

Open Access Dissertations

It is essential to predict person-to-person contaminant transport in enclosed environments to improve air distribution design and reduce the infection risk from airborne infectious diseases. This study aims to improve and accelerate the simulation of person-to-person contaminant transport in enclosed environments. ^ This investigation first conducted experimental measurements of person-to-person contaminant transport in an office mockup and the first-class cabin of a functional MD-82 aircraft. The experimental data of steady-state airflow, temperature, and gas contaminant concentration fields obtained in the office were used to validate the steady-state computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models. In the aircraft cabin, the transient particle concentrations were ...

Modeling Traffic Through Intersections, Mark Griffith 2015 Carroll College, Helena, MT

Modeling Traffic Through Intersections, Mark Griffith

Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science Undergraduate Theses

This paper analyzes the effects traffic flow controllers, such as stop signs and stop lights, have on the flow of traffic through a 4-way intersection. In particular, we investigate which controller (either using 2 stop signs, 4 stop signs, or stop lights) to use depending on the number of cars in a lane. We use a method that accounts for a set number of cars in each lane and a car’s velocity based on the distance to the stop line or to the car in front. We also account for how a car will turn once it reaches the ...


Development Of Simulation Modules For Liquid Desiccant Systems In Sorpsim, Zhiyao Yang 2015 Purdue University

Development Of Simulation Modules For Liquid Desiccant Systems In Sorpsim, Zhiyao Yang

Open Access Theses

Liquid Desiccant Systems (LDS) have been an attractive alternative to the conventional vapor-compression air conditioning technology in HVAC applications for their thermally-driven nature and the expertise in dealing with large latent load in a more energy-efficient way. Much effort has been made during the past decades to study the performance of LDS and their components both experimentally and through modelling approach. However, predicting the performance of LDS is still a skill-demanding task because it involves model implementation, retrieval of fluid properties, solving procedure setup, and preparation of a good set of initial guess value to model just one component. It ...


Low Income, Supermarket Accessibility, And The Transportation Network: A Multimodal Analysis Identifying Areas Of Poor Accessibility And Intervention Strategies In Indianapolis, Indiana, Andrea Leigh Bailey 2015 Purdue University

Low Income, Supermarket Accessibility, And The Transportation Network: A Multimodal Analysis Identifying Areas Of Poor Accessibility And Intervention Strategies In Indianapolis, Indiana, Andrea Leigh Bailey

Open Access Theses

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Service estimates that 23.5 million people live in food deserts, over half of which are considered low-income residents. Accurately defining a food desert is crucial as the designated areas can benefit from grant opportunities and funding priority. To qualify as an urban food desert, the USDA requires that at least 500 residents or one-third of the population live outside a one-mile buffer from a supermarket as well as have a median income of less than 80% of the area average or a poverty rate of greater than 20%. Approaches in ...


Discovering What Lies Below: The Exploration Of William & Mary's Crypt Under The Chapel, Somayah S. Allibhai-Mawani 2015 College of William and Mary

Discovering What Lies Below: The Exploration Of William & Mary's Crypt Under The Chapel, Somayah S. Allibhai-Mawani

Undergraduate Honors Theses

My goal for this research project was to better understand the largely misconceived crypt space on campus. When speaking with students, faculty, staff, and community members in Williamsburg, I found about half of the population to be unaware of the bodies interred below the chapel floor. This was astonishing to me, as while many men and women worshiped, watched concerts, and took part in ceremonies within the Wren Building’s south wing, none were aware or informed about the local dignitaries directly below their feet. For those that were familiar about the crypt below, little accurate knowledge was known. This ...
