Throughout the BSD curriculum, design-studio projects will increase in scale and complexity, and students will be asked to integrate more and more disciplinary knowledge and professional skills. The theme of third-year studio, ARCH 310, is “Organize”. This studio asks students to explore how architects organize things like building program (the ways in which a building is used), structure and circulation. Courses such as ARCH 331 Structural Mechanics and ARCH 240 Classical History cover material in support of design integration.
Although they share a common theme, each section of ARCH 310 is taught by a different instructor and may even take a different approach. In the studio-section described here by Assistant Professor David Newton, students learn to create architectural configurations through generative procedures. Newton explains: More-

LARC 310 Partners with the City of Gering and Panhandle Area Development District Assistant Professor Catherine De Almeida received a $3,500 EPA Sub-Award from the City of Gering and the Panhandle Area Development District for her third-year landscape architecture design studio on waste landscapes. For the first five weeks of this semester, students worked in three groups of three to envision the 10th street corridor, a highly industrialized, barren roadway that connects the cities of Gering and Scottsbluff, as a pedestrian and bicycle friendly corridor that captures stormwater on site. While the studio visited Gering during the first weekend of classes, students learned how to use a drone as a documentation and mapping tool. More-
While thousands of residents of the Carolinas were fleeing the severely damaging floods caused by Hurricane Florence on September 17th, students in CRPL 472/872 “Hazard Mitigation Planning” were learning about alternative best management practices for stormwater management from Ben Higgins, PE, senior engineer with the Watershed Management Division of Lincoln’s Public Works and Utilities Department, hosted by course instructors Dr. Zhenghong Tang and Jeff Henson (MCRP 2013).

In the upcoming weeks, I hope to highlight some of the specific projects and student work in the various core interior design curricular courses. I think for some of us, it is a good opportunity to be reminded of the time and care put into crafting a course, its outcomes, its schedule…and the way that it maps to an overall academic curricular experience. This week, the focus will be on the IDES210 studio. Taught by myself and Erin Miller. For the older students in the program, it might sound familiar and serve as a reminder to some of the core fundamentals that you may have become accustomed to naturally and inherently addressing in your design process. For others, it might be a good reminder of particular fundamentals you may want to revisit in order to increase the “potency” of your spatial proposals or sharpen your method. More-
Assistant Professor David Newton presented a paper entitled  "Multi-Objective Qualitative Optimization (MOQO) in
Architectural Design" at the Education and research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADE) Conference in September.
