Cultural Heritage Preservation In The Context Of Climate Change Adaptation Or Relocation: Barbuda As A Case Study, Martha B. Lerski May 2019

Cultural Heritage Preservation In The Context Of Climate Change Adaptation Or Relocation: Barbuda As A Case Study, Martha B. Lerski

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This case study introduces an arts camp methodology of engaging communities in identifying their key cultural heritage features, thus serving as a meta study. It presents original research based on field studies on the climate-vulnerable Caribbean island of Barbuda during 2017 and 2018. Its Valued Cultural Elements survey, enabling precise identification of key tangible and intangible art forms and biocultural practices, may serve as a basis for further studies. Such approaches may facilitate future research or planning as climate-vulnerable communities harness Local or Indigenous Knowledge for purposes of biocultural heritage preservation, or towards adaptation or relocation. I report on findings ...


In The Folds: Transforming A City’S Identity Through Art And Social Purposes, Yichien Cooper Oct 2017

In The Folds: Transforming A City’S Identity Through Art And Social Purposes, Yichien Cooper

Journal of Social Theory in Art Education

This autoethnographic narrative retraces my four-year journey as an art commissioner for a city that is transforming beyond the stigma associated with a significant role in early nuclear weapons to a growing agritourism industry. The looming pressure for change is just like when tectonic plates push against each other until there is a quick release, causing earthquakes and eruptions. In the midst of the changing forces, I consider how the arts fold in. There are two purposes in this article that investigates the complexity between civic development and art. First, I will (re)define and (re)frame (Short & Turner, 2013 ...


Situating Design, Gregory S. Palermo Sep 2017

Situating Design, Gregory S. Palermo

Gregory Palermo

This is a case study of the development of a new Core curriculum course at the Iowa State University (ISU) College of Design (CoD). It relates an overview of the creation of the course and sample learning exercises that activate a large lecture class. Historically, the CoD separated first-year students into discipline specific studies, narrowing, we believe, their perspectives about design. A Task Force analyzed learning outcomes of the first year programs, and proposed a more interdisciplinary conception of design education. The CoD committed itself to creating a Core foundation year of design studies, which students in Architecture, Landscape Architecture ...


Ethical Expectations: Reflections From Beginning Architecture Students, Gregory S. Palermo Sep 2017

Ethical Expectations: Reflections From Beginning Architecture Students, Gregory S. Palermo

Gregory Palermo

Each year several thousand recent high school graduates enter accredited professional degree programs to study architecture. They have made the decision to ‘become an architect’ early in life and arrive at university directly from high school rather than upon completion of a prior baccalaureate degree. Undoubtedly, during the final years of high school, autumn 2008 entering first-year students answered this question more than a few times: “Why do you want to study architecture?”


On Craft, William Lentjes May 2017

On Craft, William Lentjes

Honors College Capstones and Theses

Craft is a relationship - a dialogue - between craftsman, tool, and material. Craft begins with the intent of all of these loci, and all of these loci are rooted in Being.

Being is known through the consciousness, awareness, and perception of a subject. Being is the inherent existence and totality of "what is."

Being crafts us; Craft imbues Being.

This thesis re-examines the pedagogical approach of an architectural education. The focus is placed on craft through presuppositionless phenomenology.

In an age of endless mechanized production and spiritless materialism, the practice of craft can teach us to return to the experience of ...


Lacuna: Transcendence Of The Human Body Through The Space Between, Anica Bottom May 2017

Lacuna: Transcendence Of The Human Body Through The Space Between, Anica Bottom

Honors Theses

This essay examines the author’s choreography, Lacuna, and research integral to its representation. During the choreographic process, experimentation of how the human body moves in relation to different architectural space was observed. In collaboration with the cast of dancers, cohesion of personal experiences in particular locations was evaluated: specifically, investigation of how environments has the ability to trigger habits or patterns of movement from both past and present experiences. A closer look at how the body responds on a visceral level to the physical and emotional sense of place is described. Although the choreographic piece, Lacuna, came to be ...


Read-In Arts, An Liu Jan 2017

Read-In Arts, An Liu

Theses and Dissertations

As interior designers, we strive to design everything for our clients, from complex environments to the joinery of a chair. We rarely consider inviting our clients or the users to join us in finishing the space.

Read-In workshop is not a school, but a kind of home, a home belonging to children, which provides the possibilities for children to play, to learn, to occupy, to personalize, and to share. An emotional space that will not limit the user, but keep inspiring them. It helps children notice, think, and grow.

Half of the interior space will be a fixed design, designed ...

Exploring Learning Objectives For Digital Design In Architectural Education, Shelby Doyle, Nick Senske Aug 2016

Exploring Learning Objectives For Digital Design In Architectural Education, Shelby Doyle, Nick Senske

Shelby Elizabeth Doyle

: What are the objectives of teaching digital design in architecture? While this seems a rather primitive inquiry it in fact is loaded with misunderstanding and disagreement. This paper aims to bring accepted educational research about learning objectives into the discussion of digital design’s relationship to architecture. In particular, Bloom’s Taxonomy is introduced and referenced as a tool for creating clarity, transparency, and accountability among educators. The purpose of reflecting upon learning objectives for digital design in architecture is not to produce a definitive list of what students ought to learn. Learning objectives are written for specific curricula, student ...

Performance And Form: New Pedagogical Approaches To Designing The Building Envelope As An Adaptive Interface, Ulrike Passe, Robert Demel Sep 2015

Performance And Form: New Pedagogical Approaches To Designing The Building Envelope As An Adaptive Interface, Ulrike Passe, Robert Demel

Ulrike Passe

Architecture pedagogy plays a significant role in building a sustainable world. Sustainable design requires a thorough understanding of building energy performance, while the urging issue of a changing climate demands for higher energy efficiency and improved energy conservation. This demand challenges conventional ways to program buildings as well as purely formal approaches to the design of their envelope and spatial composition. It is no longer the question to build for one climate instead with the lifespan of a building, design concepts might need to integrate the ability to adapt to at least two climate conditions: current and future. The question ...

The relevance of the initiative and the special project to STEAM education is discussed.


Pigs Feet, Jesse W. Standlea Sep 2015

Pigs Feet, Jesse W. Standlea

The STEAM Journal

My sculpture “Pigs Feet” has literal foundations upon casts of live pig’s feet. I locally sourced the pig’s feet before casting them. My sculpture makes use of a once cutting edge casting technology, alginate. Alginate molds were once the standard in dentistry. Alginate is an appealing casting material as it is refined from brown seaweeds, is both food and skin safe, it is suitable for educators, for artists and engineers alike.


Enacting Place: A Comparative Case Study, Anna Grosch Aug 2015

Enacting Place: A Comparative Case Study, Anna Grosch

Theses and Dissertations

As a community-based art educator, I advocate for an arts-based educational environment that embraces postmodern tenets and encourages individuals to reflect on self and society in relation to the places in which they dwell and learn. This thesis is a dialogue on emplaced community-based art education. Issues of urban education, social justice, and critical pedagogy are considered in relation to participants’ enactments of place within two distinct community-based educational settings. In order to investigate the connections between a culture of place, place-based education, and the community-based programs of each site, the role of art and artifacts was carefully considered in ...


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 Apr 2015

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 ...


Rural Post-Industrial Landscapes: The Perceptual Practice Of The Generative Site Plan, Peter P. Goché, Ziad Qureshi Jan 2015

Rural Post-Industrial Landscapes: The Perceptual Practice Of The Generative Site Plan, Peter P. Goché, Ziad Qureshi

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

This presentation will discuss the generative role of the site plan in the interdisciplinary consideration of the post-industrial landscape as a constructed, cultural artifact. During their investigations, design students at Iowa State University addressed the perceptual aspects and unique strategies of situation and location, through the particular lens of the iterative site plan drawing. As an introduction to dealing with these issues of “site,” each effort involved a careful and multi-scalar examination of environmental phenomena and patterns of use and settlement, revealed and affected by the post-industrial architectural artifact.

Hand To Mouse: Integrated Technology Laboratory In Undergraduate Architectural Education, Ulrike Passe, Kristin M. Nelson

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The undergraduate building technology sequence (uBTS) seeks to impart a broad understanding of environmental systems through a variety of research and simulation techniques including direct observation, traditional calculations and scientific method, and advanced modeling and evaluation software. The integration of the uBTS sequence with studio project work and engagement with the larger inter-institutional research efforts encourages strong student engagement and early mastery of advanced skills. This paper will discuss the above general themes through specific laboratory case studies which are tied to key points in the three year uBTS.


Chicken And Egg? Hentagon, Icosa-Coop, And Two Types Of Experience, Mikesch Muecke, Peter M. Evans Jan 2014

Chicken And Egg? Hentagon, Icosa-Coop, And Two Types Of Experience, Mikesch Muecke, Peter M. Evans

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

In an essay with the title Experience and Poverty,1 Walter Benjamin writes about the lack of traditional experience (Erfahrung)—a kind of acquired knowledge—that could be handed down to younger generations through story-telling and hands-on instruction. Benjamin reads this experience as a cipher for modern architecture where one material—steel—stands in for a cultural perspective toward traditions, while glass represents a new virtual existence expressed in a short-term event-based experience—in German the word is Erlebnis—both of which, we think, can be transmitted through contemporary pedagogy. In our paper we argue that effective teaching of beginning- ...


A Machine For Learning: Materials And Construction In The Beginning Design Studio, James E. Leach, James M. Spiller Jan 2014

A Machine For Learning: Materials And Construction In The Beginning Design Studio, James E. Leach, James M. Spiller

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

An ongoing effort, begun nearly a decade ago by the building technology faculty, seeks to increase integration of the concepts and content taught within the technical courses into design studio work. This has primarily been implemented through lab assignments in the technical courses devised to apply developing technical knowledge to current, or recently-completed design studio projects. This approach has met with considerable success in the later years of the architectural education, after students have acquired a strong foundation of technical knowledge. There is greater difficulty, however, in fluently integrating building technology content in early studios, particularly given a greater fluidity ...

Brick By Brick: Improved Outcomes Through Linked Learning Objectives In Beginning Technology Labs, Kris Nelson, Rob Whitehead

Architecture Conference Proceedings and Presentations

The practice of designing high-performing, technically proficient buildings in an integrated manner has increased in importance (and frequency) in step with elevated expectations for measurable building performance standards. However, traditional pedagogical models for building technology education have done little to adjust in response relying instead upon outdated modes for the classroom structure, content, and teaching methods.

Incorporating Historic Preservation Into An Accredited Interior Design Program, Reasoning And Application, Jenna M. Woodcox

Mid-America College Art Association Conference 2012 Digital Publications

Due to the recent decline of the economic situation in the United States, more credibility needs to be established in regard to the professions that are deemed “luxury career paths”. This essay focuses on interior design and historic preservation integration. This literature is intended to bring more credibility and awareness to the interior design field to show outsiders the potential and importance it holds. Most importantly, this proposal is for current designers who are not working in the field, to not give up hope for their design careers and think of ways to reinvent themselves (like choosing a specialty) to ...
