Message from the Dean:

Resilience is an important attribute for each of us and is bolstered by caring and supportive relationships. Resilience is precious as it allows us to bounce back from stressful and challenging life events. How do we build resiliency? One way is by making connections and living in community. Another is to take care of yourself, making sure you eat nutritiously, get some exercise and not depriving your body and mind of sleep. Resilience is not an attribute we are each born with, rather, it is something developed over time by learning strategies and through conscious decisions.

Highly stressful events happen, but they are not insurmountable. Remember, when you come across people who have high levels of resilience, those are most likely people who have faced multiple and often significant challenges in their lives and have built up their resilience.

Let’s continue to treat each other with kindness and respect. Structure comments to be constructive and positive, building on the strengths of an idea or proposal. Don’t underestimate the power of an encouraging word and a smile, each goes a long way in building relationships and supporting each other.

INTERIOR DESIGN
This semester, students in IDES 301: Material Applications have memberships to NE Innovation Studio where the later two-thirds of the class is held. The students are doing a series of projects focused on designing and fabricating custom interior materials and space-making elements. These making projects explore the impact and creative capacity embedded in custom material fabrication, with the goal of helping students becoming stronger designers as they intensify their level of authorship on a project.

ARCHITECTURE
As history tells us, architectural ideas and tendencies tend to cycle through periods. At mid-century, the dominant thinking was “form follows function.” Circa 1980, the postmodern movement reversed that formula to “function follows form.” Whereas the dogmas of high modernism foregrounded research and process at the expense of form, postmodernism debunked the scientific rationale behind a simplistic functionalism.

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
Collaboration, in its various forms, inter, intra, trans, is in vogue everywhere these days. It has become an omnipresent requirement, but collaboration for collaboration’s sake is often not collaboration at all. How one builds a culture of collaboration is a question of great interest to the university. As researchers are grappling with more complex issues, the need to assemble multidisciplinary teams is becoming a necessary new normal. This reality, reinforced by the growing requirements in grant applications for multidisciplinary teams, is proving to be a challenge for a scientific community that has never been particularly collaborative in the past. While working teams is a model that has a long history in the design community, the growing complexity of urban projects and the pursuit of a sustainable future is requiring the formation of new alliances with a growing array of new disciplines.

COMMUNITY AND REGIONAL PLANNING
Alumnus Doug Bisson, MCRP 1992, vice president and community planning manager in the Omaha office of HDR, met with students in the CRPL 900 Professional Planning Practice course last week. Bisson presented brief summaries and illustrations of a multitude of community planning projects that he and his planning team had worked on during the past year. The broad range of projects in which he was the coordinating planner clearly showed the wide variety of work that his group has pursued, as well as the fast pace of consulting practice. More-
