GLASS DESIGN: TECHNOLOGY & INDUSTRY
A new transdisciplinary immersive learning class that exposed and explored technological advances in the renowned regional glass industry. Students and faculty from the School of Art and the Department of Architecture engaged in material research, interviews and insights from leaders in glass industry, award winning public artists, and local community arts leaders. Students' research led to the development of multiple new ‘Donor Wall’ proposals for Minnetrista Cultural Center as well as rethinking design objects in the era of a pandemic.
Professor Halls' class surveyed 91 properties in the district to determine their historic status and to update existing information from the national register of historic places. Research was conducted on the history of the neighborhood and on individual structures culminating in a document that will help provide necessary information to the Riverside-Normal City Neighborhood Assocation and the Muncie Historic Preservation and Rehabilitation Commission.
Professor JP Halls ARCH 441/541 Preservation policy course compiled a set of historic design guidelines as neighborhood stakeholders plan to create a local historic district for a portion of the neighborhood and to assist in the continued long-term architectural preservation of the Riverside neighborhood.
Professor JP Halls ARCH 607- Historic Preservation Studio course created an adaptive reuse plan to examine the feasibility of rehabilitating the historic Caldwell-Dennis residence into transitional housing for women reentering society.
