Located in the middle of the Great Plains, the College considers itself the center for creativity. The College has established a learning environment where we support young designers – architects, interior designers and landscape architects. We help our students develop creative confidence - the freedom and courage to take creative risks and the knowledge and skills to distinguish that all of the ideas created have value. Skilled professionals who possess creative confidence help craft built environments that are ecologically sustainable and resilient, prosperous and fair, healthy, and beautiful. Building creative confidence over four-years begins with a common first year, where all incoming students study design thinking, history and theory, drawing and computing techniques and design-making. Equipped with fundamental design knowledge and skills, students then select a discipline and spend their next two years learning and practicing discipline specific expertise in design studios, lectures, seminars, 10 / College of Architecture field trips, undergraduate research, communitybased projects and service organizations. Minors, study abroad and internships are offered to enrich and broaden the student’s experience. Finally, in their fourth year, students are prepared to work in interdisciplinary teams to address unprecedented global challenges creatively. We invite you to join the University of Nebraska’s College of Architecture where you can help forge a new vision for an exciting, sustainable future. “Our graduates in architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture are equipped with a spirit of entrepreneurialism and innovation – the willingness to live with risk and uncertainty, adapt to and embrace change, and recognize being a life-long learner is key to their long-term success.” Kim Wilson, Interim Dean, Professor, and Program Director Landscape Architecture, Community and Regional Planning General Information Accreditations Architecture National Architecture Accrediting Board Interior Design Council for Interior Design Accreditation Landscape Architecture Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board 12 / College of Architecture Computer Requirements All students in the College of Architectureâ€™s Architecture, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture programs are required to lease, purchase, or have ready access to a laptop computer that meets or exceeds the specifications listed on our website (archweb.unl.edu).

The Common First Year curriculum offered by the College of Architecture introduces students to design through courses in three areas: Technique (drawing and computer applications), Design Discipline (an introduction to the related design disciplines and design history), and Design Practice (design Thinking and design Making). In addition, students take University courses in Math, English, Communications, and a general education elective. dThink and dMake are sequential hands-on courses where students learn to work in teams to address problems and promote innovation. At the same time, they learn foundational skills in composition, craft, presentation, and idea generation necessary for all design fields. 18 / College of Architecture At the end of the Common First Year, students have gained an understanding of the broad range of design and are eligible to apply for any of the design programs in the College - Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, and Industrial Design (pending program approval).

Intended for students with little or no design experience, this course introduces central issues and approaches to design as an interdisciplinary process. With an emphasis on creative thinking methods and building creative confidence, students address relevant and real-world challenges through design in an energetic, problem-based learning environment. Brian Kelly Assistant Professor of Architecture 20 / College of Architecture design Making The Design Making course builds upon the skills acquired in Design Thinking turning the focus to making within the design process as a means to developing an idea. An appreciation for craft will be instilled as a core value and seen as a means to assessing clarity and viability of the idea. Projects will also integrate explicit use of the elements and principles of design as a formal vocabulary. Students are introduced to multiple techniques of communicating ideas through physical and digital modeling, orthographic projection, freehand drawing, and other forms of graphic representation. Brian Kelly Assistant Professor of Architecture 22 / College of Architecture B 24 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture BSD-Architecture Bachelor of Science in Design-Architecture The mission of the Architecture Program is to provide the educational foundation for articulate, intellectually aware, self-realizing architecture professionals capable of performing effectively in evolving design disciplines. Students enter into the professional program after the Common First Year and proceed through a rigorous and engaging core curriculum that merges architectural design education with disciplinary and professional knowledge. The heart of the 120-credit undergraduate degree is the architectural design studio sequence. To supplement this, the Program includes required courses in the architectural discipline (history & theory), technology, and technique. In addition to the core, students take several electives and have the opportunity to apply these towards a minor in another field. In the 4th year studios, Architecture students work together with students in other fields on projects that engage real-world issues such as climate change, rapid urbanization, and cultural change. The 120-credit BSD in Architecture leads directly to the 2-year M.Arch, a NAAB accredited professional degree (required to become an architect) emphasizing design and research geared towards real and emerging challenges facing the built environment. Jeffrey L. Day, AIA Architecture Program Director and Professor of Architecture & Landscape Architecture Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture / 25 BSD-Arch Bachelor of Science in Design-Architecture - 120 credits What do Architects do? Architects shape the physical environment to give expression to the values and beliefs of a culture and its people. When a client explains to an architect his or her desires for a building, he or she is also describing his or her values and priorities. It is these beliefs, and those of the architect, that are communicated by architecture. Like most endeavors in the arts and humanities, architects are concerned with forms of expression and the content of a particular message. However, what separates architecture from most other forms of communication is its sheer size, the longevity of its statement and its mass appeal. Simply, architects design buildings. Architects visualize a building but do not directly produce it. They visualize the future through models and drawings. These tools are used to communicate their ideas to others, especially to clients. The architect is the person who creatively envisions a 26 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture product and then plans for the joining of materials and technique to produce the desired intention. An architectâ€™s process extends from the broad conceptualization to the details of construction and fabrication. Architecture Degree Programs at UNL Architecture is a six-year course of study divided into a Common First Year, a three year core, and a two-year masters program (M.Arch).

College of Architecture / 29 BSD-Arch second Year Program of Architecture Following the common first year design core, the architectural design studio sequence begins in the second year with a rigorous introduction to architectural design methods, processes, and studio culture. Studio projects range from simple and limited-scope architectural design studies to more complex buildings incorporating knowledge of structure, materials and program (function and human events). Students learn to analyze given needs, study relevant precedents and respond with building proposals. To support the studio design work, students take courses in disciplinary knowledge (Modern Architectural History & Building Organization), technology (Structural Fundamentals & Material Assemblies), technique (intermediate computer applications in Parametric & Building Information Modeling), and Physics. Jeffrey L. Day, AIA Architecture Program Director and Professor of Architecture & Landscape Architecture 30 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture BSD-Arch 210 Elements of Architectural Design I Abstraction is aggressively deployed through design projects which include concepts of siting, path, intuitive structures, and ordering principles. This work quickly transitions into the design of a small scale wall. The premise behind the wall project is that in order to design a building, one must first explore the opportunities existent within the design of a wall. Topics covered through the site specific design include structure, skin, aperture door and window, and vertical circulation. Embedded throughout the semester is also a grounding in two and three dimensional representational techniques.

It began with an investigation of the courthouse typology to draw out crucial issues and relationships. Simultaneously, analysis on both an urban and suburban site highlighted the opportunities and problems with each location. Students were then charged with integrating these various forms of knowledge while designing for diverse user groups with specific needs, including privacy, security, acoustics, and view. The project also encouraged students to engage form, material, and affect as significant factors in the making of social and civic space.

The spring semester studio in third year challenges students to incorporate the influences of site and landscape into building design and introduces relevant site design techniques. In addition to studios each semester, students take courses in disciplinary knowledge (Classical Architectural History & Site), technology (architectural structures: Structural Mechanics & Structural Optimization), and as always, elective courses or courses in a chosen minor field. Jeffrey L. Day, AIA Architecture Program Director and Professor of Architecture & Landscape Architecture 40 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture BSD-Arch 310 Architectural Design: Systematic Approach 01 The VTOL Urban.Port.Terminal brief explored the hybridization of a new type of urban port terminal. As a post-industrial U.S. will never be able to finance the necessary infrastructure required for highspeed rail to compete with exist air or car travel, students were asked to research the recurring technology of the high-speed airship as a viable and low-carbon alternative. The Vertical Take-Off & Landing aircraft allow for much tighter urban affiliations and potentially reverse the trend of the sprawling suburban airport type. The design brief sought hybridizations between bus stations, train terminals, and airports which also challenged the prevalent shopping model in todayâ€™s airports with new leisure-oriented programs. The studio was led as a digitally-driven, performance-based design studio which asked students to consider systemic design methods and computational techniques.

The second aim was to explore and utilize modular construction techniques both as a means to achieve construction and economic efficiencies and as a highly syntactical bottomup & inside-outside design process. The third aim was for designed to be consider a type of Experimental Parametric Pragmatism: a digitallydriven, performance-based design which asked students to consider systemic design methods and elastic/parametric real world design variables. The studio collaborated with developers and the local municipalityâ€™s economic and urban development office which served as the client base and offered expertise and critiques throughout the project process.

Students in ARCH 350 identify the range of constraints that shape architectural design problems, while also identifying the range of heuristics historically used by architects in decisionmaking: These include analogies, anthropometrics, environmental factors, engineering factors, formal languages, and type. Students work in teams to investigate the story of process behind a distinctive architectural work before then examining their own decision-making behind their respective studio project.

Ultimately, the studio investigated the intersection of landscape design, architecture, and planning in the making of spaces within a natural educational setting. The studio served as a means to explore the possibilities for landscape to shape architecture as a reciprocal activity.

Students related landscape and architecture through projects that asked emerging designers to propose buildings & landscapes as part of a system for organizing activities and natural ecologies. Rather than focusing on the building as isolated object, the studio emphasized the space that surrounds us â€“ a field from which buildings emerge. Students explored these ideas in two projects, including one incorporating exhibit space, live-work artistsâ€™ studios and a public park in a flood plain. Students sought techniques for design that merge architectural and landscape architectural processes towards a common goal of integrated, collaborative practice. Jeffrey L.

Projects emphasize architecture in complex contexts. Supplementing the studios, students take courses in disciplinary knowledge (Urbanism & Theory) and technology (Environmental Systems & Building Integration) and electives. In the spring semester Comprehensive Studio students develop designs that incorporate all facets of architectural design including knowledge gained from the disciplinary, technology and technique sequences. Building Integration is paired with the Comprehensive Studio to engage students in the integrative thinking of systems and in developing detailed building documentation. Jeffrey L. Day, AIA Architecture Program Director and Professor of Architecture & Landscape Architecture 62 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Architecture BSD-Arch 410 Architectural Design: Tectonics Our architectural discipline must enhance the seriousness with which it responds to design problems, and mature from questions such as “What does your architecture look like?” to more appropriate questions such as “How should your building perform?” As architects, our commitment to utility and function is a minimum disciplinary requirement, however our enthusiastic engagement with the question of Performance guarantees meaningful and purposeful physical qualities that raise the value of architectural design for both current and future users. ARCH 410 is our comprehensive design studio which fosters architectural ideation prior to the plausible resolution of a proposal’s structural, envelope, mechanical and lighting systems.

This studio proposed the opposite: demolition, subtraction, excavation, erasure, and editing as primary creative acts. Subtractive procedures are evident in projects involving a dominant existing site, such as urban redevelopment or the adaptive reuse of a building, but they are found in any design project. Fundamental to this is the notion that architecture is not â€œcompleteâ€? when the contractor leaves; it is always in flux and undergoes its greatest transformation when new uses and tenants layer themselves upon it. As an invited participant in the Lyceum Fellowship Competition, the studio challenged students to design a cultural facility in an abandoned granite quarry in Barre, Vermont. Jeffrey L.

The course positions urbanism as a dynamic and complex process, not a thing, continually altering the center, middle, and edge. Urbanism is an emergent set of relationships having many influences situated, sustained, and altered by an active and dynamic set of relationships.

Students who have a keen interest in their surroundings and an ability to creatively solve a variety of problems will likely find success in interior design. Since the interior designer works within the confines of the built environment, the ability to visualize 3-dimensional space and manipulate 3-D volumes in their mind while solving spatial problems is a good candidate for a career in interior design. Communication skills, both written and verbal, and an interest in culture and the way people live are also good indicators of potential success in interior design. The Interior Design Program in the College of Architecture is fully accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation and is recognized as among the top programs in North America not only because of the student work, but also for the collaborative relationships with the allied disciplines of architecture and landscape architecture. The four year undergraduate program consists of a Common First Year of courses shared by students in architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design. This year is followed by focused years of study in interior design and a final year that allows for collaborative work with students in architecture and landscape architecture. Students participate in exploring a full range of design problems in the studios where they develop design solutions that are presented to practicing professionals and for some projects, actual clients. The contact with the profession and clients is continued in the required internship program where students work in professional design firms for academic credit. Through these explorations and related course work in design history, materials, detailing, and professional practice, students develop an understanding of all aspects associated with the multi-dimensional field of interior design. The Bachelor of Science in Design â€“ Interior Design requires 120 semester credit house of coursework. Betsy Gabb, EdD, FIDEC, IIDA Professor & Program Director Bachelor of Science in Design - Interior Design / 83 BSD-ID Bachelor of Science in Design-Interior Design - 120 credits What do Interior Designers do? One of the most appealing aspects of interior design is the variety of career options available within the discipline. Some designers consistently work on all types of interior projects, while others opt to specialize in some aspect of interior design. Residential design is perhaps the oldest and most widely recognized segment of interior design, but the field of commercial interiors, such as hospitality, healthcare, retail, or institutional, is rapidly growing and requires specialized knowledge and skills. 84 / Bachelor of Science in Design - Interior Design Regardless of the actual type of interior project, designers follow a process for carrying an interior design project to completion. A thorough analysis of client needs is important in order to translate those needs into real spaces, furniture and fixture requirements. The interior designer plans, selects, and specifies interior furnishings and finish materials to meet the clientâ€™s dreams and at the same time complies with applicable codes and regulations. Finally, designers are responsible for designing custom components and overseeing their fabrication and installation.

Landscape architects design exterior spaces and places. Those less familiar with landscape architecture tend to think of the profession in relatively basic terms, involving plantings around a building or in a park, for example. The reality is quite different; the profession is much broader, richer, and far-reaching. Landscape architects design at many scales, ranging from a tiny roof deck terrace to thousand of acres of National Forest lands; from the private realm of corporate office courtyard to the public realm of a neighborhood park or community plan; from the specialized creation of a healing garden at a hospital to a customized rehabilitation of a native wetlands. The numerous project types, practice types, along with the professional possibilities available to someone with a background in landscape architecture is almost unlimited. The Landscape Architecture Program is fully accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board and is the only four-year accredited program in a four-state region. This program also offers the only collaborative interdisciplinary approach with the allied disciplines of architecture, interior design and planning. The four-year undergraduate program consists of a common first year of courses shared by students in architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture. This year is followed by two years where students develop disciplinebased knowledge and skills focused on site and building, community planning and design, and urban environments. The final year allows for collaborative work with students in architecture, interior design, and planning in research-based studios. Students participate in exploring a broad range of design problems in the studios where they develop design solutions that are presented to practicing professionals and for some projects, actual clients or partners. Students participate in a myriad of opportunities to support learning in the profession including professional electives, seminars, minors, lecture series, and study abroad. Learning about the profession continues in the required internship program where students work in professional design firms for academic credit. The Bachelor of Landscape Architecture degree requires 120-semester credit hours of coursework. Kim Wilson, Interim Dean, Professor, and Program Director Landscape Architecture, Community and Regional Planning Bachelor of Landscape Architecture / 125 BLA Bachelor of Landscape Architecture - 120 credits What do Landscape Architects do? Landscape architecture is a profession broad in scale and scope. Landscape architects receive training in site design, historic preservation and planning, as well as in technical and scientific areas such as grading, drainage, horticulture and environmental sciences. With this diverse background, landscape architects possess a unique blend of abilities to help families, communities and businesses address important local, regional and national priorities. Landscape architects provide sustainable solutions, support active lifestyle, design transportation solutions, assist in historic preservation and manage water resources. 126 / Bachelor of Landscape Architecture The Landscape Architecture professional degree program is unique in its collaborative format. Administered by the College of Architecture, the four year BLA curriculum is led by four landscape architects and collaboratively by the Architecture, Horticulture and Agronomy, and Community and Regional Planning programs.

Studio projects establish an understanding of the role environmental sciences, human behavior and historical context play in determining the best ways to integrate human activity while respecting and responding to environmental and social processes. Students learn to collect, analyze and communicate basic site systems characteristics including topography, soils, hydrology, plants and ecology, as well as cultural characteristics including building/ land uses, circulation components, and all aspects of the built environment. Design theory is focused at the site scale and spatial design expressed using landform, plants and structures. Hand-built models and computer-generated diagrams, plans and sections are used to communicate design ideas and process. To support the studio design work, 128 / Bachelor of Landscape Architecture students take courses in disciplinary knowledge (Landscape Appreciation & History and Theory), technology (Materiality, Grading and Drainage & GIS), and environmental sciences (Plants Science, Plants & Soil Resources). Kim Wilson, Interim Dean, Professor, and Program Director Landscape Architecture, Community and Regional Planning BLA 210 Studio I, Process and Methods The practice of landscape architecture is a complex and integrative undertaking, encompassing a myriad of natural, cultural and scientific systems. Analysis, critical questioning and design are all methods by which we, as landscape architects, arrive at creative, responsible solutions.

One exercises is located on the campus of Doane College, in Crete, NE. The second project is a new public space located in Lincoln’s downtown. Students analyze and design specific projects, considering both their physical and conceptual connections to the larger site context. The aim is for students to gain an understanding of the relationship of landscape to architecture at the site and urban scales; consider the effects of construction and ground manipulation on the perception and experience of space; and explore the possibilities of layering and transparency, enclosure and adjacencies, “in-between” spaces and connectors. Ultimately, the studio investigates the intersection of landscape design, architecture, and planning in the making of spaces within a public landscape.

Regardless of the grandness of an idea, to truly accomplish a design, one must have a practical plan to reach those ends. The development of construction drawings enable designers to communicate with other interests in the design process. Most importantly, they become a visual and annotated guidebook for the various contractors associated with any given project. This course invites students to think in greater detail about design and to consider the obstacles and opportunities that come with those decisions.

This workshop provides a unique experience to investigate issues surrounding design and learn more about the design professions of architecture, landscape architecture and interior design. The workshop provides learning opportunities in the form of design studio explorations, seminars and discussions, field trips and video presentations. The central focus of the workshop is a design studio where design issues are explored and creative energies are nurtured. As part of the workshop students will visit professional offices, learn about various career opportunities, and develop fundamental skills necessary for the study of design. 190 / College of Architecture Students who have completed two or more years of their high school education and have an interest in architecture, landscape architecture or interior design are encouraged to apply. You do not need courses in art or drafting in order to participate. Applicants will be selected on the basis of a review of materials submitted with the application procedure. We have reserved space for 36 students in the workshop and applications are due in April of each year. http://architecture.unl.edu/programs/arch/hs_ workshop.shtml CoA Internship The College of Architecture strongly encourages students in all fields to seek internships with professional offices during their time at UNL. Internships allow students to earn academic credit during the summer while gaining valuable, paid experience in their chosen discipline or a related field. Each spring the College organizes a career fare to help introduce students to potential employers representing professional offices in all of our constituent disciplines. At the fair, students interested in temporary internships and full-time jobs meet with potential employers and make valuable connections with local, national and international firms. Summer internships often lead to offers of full-time employment after graduation. For Architecture students, internships provide opportunities to begin earning credit towards professional licensure as part of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boardsâ€™s (NCARB) Intern Development Program. See http:// www.ncarb.org for more details. To facilitate this, the College has an IDP representative on the faculty 192 / College of Architecture who advises students about IDP, internship and professional licensure. Students may start earning IDP credit from professional experience as soon as they enroll in the professional Architecture program but most start the internship experience after the 3rd or 4th year and continue during summers while working toward the graduate M.Arch degree. For Interior Design students, the required internship takes place in the summer between the 3rd and 4th years. Most interns work for design firms; those who work in related retail sectors acquire valuable knowledge about a material, product or service. For Landscape Architecture students, the required internship takes place in the summer between the 3rd and 4th years and may extent into the fall semester. Most interns work for small to large design firms as well as local, state, and federal governmental agencies.
