What do Architects do?

Architecture

Architecture 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 product and then plans for the joining of materials and technique to produce the desired intention. An architect’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 three, two-year segments. Students choosing to study architecture first enter the college as majors in pre-architecture. After completing a two-year curriculum in pre-architecture, students apply for admission into the architecture program’s professional program. The professional program in architecture consists of two components: the two-year bachelor of science in design (BSD-Architecture) and the subsequent two-year master of architecture (MArch). Students are required to apply for admission into the MArch program after completion of the BSD degree.

Accreditation In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the bachelor of architecture, the master of architecture and the doctor of architecture. A program may be granted a 6-year, 3-year or 2-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.

Architecture

Second Year

Applicants with degrees from other fields may be eligible to enter the three year master of architecture program with deficiencies. These deficiencies are evaluated by the program director on an individual basis after admission resulting from a review of the applicant’s transcripts and other pertinent professionally-related materials by the Student Affairs Committee. Students in this three year program are required to complete 27 to 50 hours of selected undergraduate courses (a minimum of one additional year) prior to pursuing the professional program. Applicants with deficiencies exceeding 50 credit hours are not admitted.

Master of Science For those who would like to pursue scholarship in architecture, the architecture program also offers a 36 credit hour, scholarly-nonprofessional master of science

Masters degree programs may consist of an undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, that, when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the undergraduate degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.

Dual Degree Programs Students also have the opportunity to take advantage of several joint degree programs with other colleges within the university. The department of civil engineering and the architecture program have established a joint program of study. This program permits student to obtain both accredited degrees, a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, after seven years of study. Recently the college has established a dual degree with the Construction Management Program as well. Another program available to students is a three-year course of study in architecture and business administration that leads to the Master of Architecture and the Master of Business Administration degrees. Lastly, students can choose to participate in a joint degree program between Architecture and Community and Regional Planning. Students are required to apply separately to each of these programs.

Interior Design What do Interior Designers do?

Interior Design

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. 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 client’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.

Interior Design Degrees at UNL BSD – Interior Design The four-year interior design program consists of a two-year pre-interior design program and a subsequent two-year bachelor of science in design (BSD-Interior Design) major. After completing a two-year curriculum in pre-interior design, students apply for admission into the College of Architecture’s interior design program. In these last two years of study, students participate in a full range of design problems from residential to institutional. These design problems are explored in studios where students develop specific design solutions that are presented to practicing design professionals and, for

College Facilities

College Facilities

The college is headquartered in Architecture Hall. Constructed in the early 1890s and placed into service as the University Library in 1894, Architecture Hall is the oldest and most distinctive of the occupied structures on the university’s City Campus. All facilities of this unique and historic complex are located within the southwestern fine arts quadrant of the campus, with convenient access to the Lincoln central business district for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The facilities of the College of Architecture underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and remodeling project, which connected two existing buildings with a glass atrium. This 91,000 square foot complex comprises classrooms; design and planning studios; computer, media, digital fabrication and shop facilities; Architecture Library; exhibit spaces; and other ancillary facilities. Architecture Hall provides students and faculty with one of the finest facilities in the nation for the study of architecture, design, community and regional planning and landscape architecture.

Architecture Gallery The Gallery has a regular program of exhibits open to students and the general public. These exhibits originate from local, national and international sources and cover a broad spectrum of design issues. At the end of each year, the gallery serves as a space for the exhibit and discussion of student work from various studios.

Architecture Library The Architecture Library, located in Architecture Hall, is a branch facility of the University Libraries. The Architecture Library maintains collections related to the fields of architecture, planning, urban design, interior design, landscape architecture, community development and building technology. In addition to an extensive collection of 45,000 books, the library receives 310 national and international magazines and

29


journals and has a slide and digital image collection with copy, duplication and identification services. The Architecture Library has a research-quality collection and is a resource for both professionals and scholars. Digital Commons at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln serves as an institutional repository for creative and scholarly work providing immediate access to materials. The College of Architecture has over 150,000 images of architecture, design, landscape architecture and planning available to students and faculty.

Computer Labs In the College of Architecture, computer use is tightly interwoven with design education. Students explore the representational abilities of the computer side by side with more traditional means of expression – drawing, physical models, photography and printmaking. Students do not only learn how to operate the computer, but also learn the far more important objective of what should be done with it. Network access to university servers is available from every student workstation, including individual student ports in design studios, classrooms, computer labs and the library. Wherever students work they are able to “plug in� their computer to the network. In addition, the College of Architecture is a site for wireless networking on campus. Students can utilize the wireless network anywhere in Architecture Hall. The college has three computer labs. The main computer lab for architecture, interior design and landscape architecture is located in the lower level of the west building. This facility provides fifteen PC workstations along with printing and scanning capability for students of the college. The lab machines are loaded with all the required Computer Policy software for the architecture, interior design and landscape architecture programs.

Digital Design Lab A Digital Design Lab has been established on the basement level of the west building. The facility, operated in conjunction with the Media Center, currently has two laser cutters and one 3D printer. Students are able to sign-up for time on these pieces of equipment after they have been trained for their use. Digital Design has been identified as one of the areas of strategic focus for the program, so we expect these facilities to continue to develop. We have added two new powerful computer stations loaded with specialty tool path and other software identified by the faculty as important to their research or class activities.

Media Center The college houses its own media center offering students large format color plotting and small format printing. In addition, large format black and white printing and scanning is available to students and the faculty. The rates charged for these services are significantly less than commercial plotting off campus, making it both economic and convenient for the college community. The Media Center has both still and video digital cameras available for check out by the students. The center also has LCD projectors available for check out. All seminar spaces in the college have their own media cart for digital projection or SMART Board units, so check out is primarily for off campus uses.

Special Programs

applications: ARCGis, Google Earth, VisualEarth and SPSS statistical software. The third lab is located on the top floor of the west building. This lab consists of twenty Mac computers used by the Visual Literacy curriculum. The computers are mounted on rolling workstations to encourage group activities. All computer stations are rotated out with new equipment on a three year staggered schedule. All equipment is used for teaching, research and service activities only.

The Architecture Wood and Metal Shop The College Shop is located on basement level of the west building. Over 3,000 square feet house power and hand tools and accessories necessary for wood and metal working and some plastics operations. The facility also housed a CNC three axis router. This comprehensive, hands-on learning facility is used by students at all levels of the program and is staffed by a part-time shop master, work-study students, and teaching assistants. Student use of the shop is contingent upon shop safety instruction by the shop master.
