Wednesday, November 16, 2016 from 5:30pm-7:00pm in Kocimski Auditorium, 101 Design

Carlos Bedoya, founding partner of Mexico City-based architecture firm Productora, will present "Architecture with a Detour" as part of the 2016-17 ISU Department of Architecture Lecture Series. His presentation is free and open to the public.

Bedoya will look at Productora's work "through a set of architectural variables as a means to tease out the practice's engagement not with solving problems per se, but with engaging the inherent 'difficulty' of architecture as a productive element of design," he said.

"Following Josef Maria Rilke's writings, a key question of Productora's research has been to ask how design should not only attempt to resolve difficulties, but to create architecture as difficulty: architecture imagined as a sort of detour."

The Iowa State students collaborated with 23 students from the other three universities to develop proposals for future live-work scenarios in challenging infill sites in Berlin-Mitte. The students were mentored by Ulrike Passe, ISU associate professor of architecture; Ahu Aydogan Akseli, CCNY; Alexander Kader, GUtech, and Robert Demel and Mathias Essig, Beuth Hoschule Berlin.

GIS Graduate Seminar: Bret Lang

Monday, November 14, 2016 from 12:10pm-1:00pm in GIS Graduate Lab, 526 Design

Creating a Land Managment Plan for Sandhill Crane (Grus Canadensis)
Bret Lang, GIS certificate candidate, natural resource ecology and management
Adviser: Tim Stewart, associate professor, natural resource ecology and management

Sandhill cranes were once common across the state of Iowa until populations decreased drastically in the late 1800s due to European settlement. Although there have been sparse sightings, it wasn't until 1992 that the first successful nesting pair in 98 years was discovered in Tama County. Since then, a number of Iowa environmental entities have made managing their lands for Sandhill crane nesting a priority. This has led to a need to develop methods that will aid in discovering Sandhill crane nesting sites as well as determining areas that have potential for nesting habitat restoration.

In 2014, Polk County Conservation made Sandhill cranes one of their priority species for conservation. One thing they desire is to develop a GIS model that will help identify potential Sandhill crane nesting sites as well as areas to prioritize for wetland development in their managed lands.

Using ArcGIS model builder, Lang developed a model that would allow Polk County Conservation to serve this purpose while needing only a raster land cover map as an initial input. He has also used ArcGIS model builder to create a GIS model that would create hotspots on locations with high wetland restoration potential.

Energy and Smart Cities: Participatory Models

Thursday, September 22, 2016 from 5:30pm-6:30pm in Kocimski Auditorium, 101 Design

We are confronted today with rising energy consumption that contributes to the greenhouse effect and global climate change. The principal tasks of planning are problem recognition, problem definition, the drafting of possible solutions and the establishing of a course of action. Energy-related spatial models and simulations can contribute significantly to these tasks and support participatory planning through technology like 3D visualization. In this lecture, architect and planner Claudia Yamu will discuss some of these emerging solutions.

Part of the 2016-2017 Contemporary Issues in Planning and Design Lecture Series, Yamu's lecture is cosponsored by the College of Design and Departments of Community and Regional Planning and Architecture.
