The status of graphical presentation in interior/architectural design education
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2004-05)
This article argues that interior/architectural design education favours a dominance of final presentation over the design process in the studio environment, particularly in the evaluation of a project. It suggests that ...
Ergonomics and universal design in interior architecture education
The focus of this article is on the application of Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) principles on design process. Designers begin acquiring HFE principles and data during their university education. Universal Design ...
Reconciling computer and hand: The case of author identity in design presentations
As computers were newly emerging in the field of architectural design, it was claimed that the impact of computers would change the way architects design and present. However, within the course of computer use in design, ...
Privacy dimensions: a case study in the interior architecture design studio
(Academic Press, 2000-03)
The most commonly used space in architectural education is the studio, which functions both as a learning centre and as a complex social organization. The behavioural elements in the design studio are analysed with respect ...
An experimental study exploring colour ranges corresponding to different colour names has been conducted. Available colour terms in Turkish language have been identified and the most frequently known or used colour terms ...
Sound absorption coefficient changes of acoustical plates made of expanded perlite in moist environment
Expanded perlite is a porous, lightweight, fire resistant and moisture retaining material with sound and thermal insulation properties. In this research, acoustical behaviour of plates made of expanded perlite was studied ...
Spatial updating of objects after rotational and translational body movements in virtual environments
Spatial reasoning in architectural design can be better understood by considering the factors that affect the spatial updating process of the individual in an environment. This study focuses on the issue of spatial updating ...
An interdisciplinary heuristic evaluation method for universal building design
This study highlights how heuristic evaluation as a usability evaluation method can feed into Current building design practice to conform to universal design principles. It provides a definition of universal usability that ...
