Fall 2012/Spring 2013 CAE 495 - Senior Capstone Design Redesigns Alumni Memorial Hall Classroom and Atriums
The AM 222 redesign is a Capstone project that transforms the classroom's 40 year-old-plus learning environment to a 21-Century experience. Organized and operated by a committee of future Engineering IIT Alumni, dedicated to making Classroom AM 222 reflect the innovative advancements of Engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology. Current conditions of the classroom is inadequate in promoting optimal environment for engineering students and staff to grow, experience and transition between Engineering Academia and current Engineering World. This redesign proposal is to resolve the insufficient physical condition of the classroom, which, in turn, affects the psychological/behavior learning environment of students, faculty, and staff. This project entails analysis of lighting, electrical, acoustics, HVAC, classroom design, and pilot study. View the video presentation here.
The atriums of Alumni Memorial Hall were also redesigned to make them brighter, provide better air circulation and temperature control, and make them more conducive to collaboration between students. View the video presentation here.
