My own color walk

During the middle of class Mrs A encouraged the class to go out for our own color walk. She gave us a time limit and we were on our way. I picked the color orange and went where the color took me. I walked out of Sparks Hall and first noticed the beautiful flowers on the sides of the buildings. I didn’t realize till that day how many cute little flowers had grown all over the campus due springs arrival. I made my way across the street where i heard a bus turning, i quickly snapped a shot because i saw the letters on the bus were orange. As i walked around Hurt Park i spotted the obvious orange traffic barrels looking abandoned on the side of the street. I continued my walk around Hurt Park and along the Robert W. Woodruff Volunteer Service Center were some orange table umbrellas. I also noticed a Starbucks sign on the window and peeked in a bit. I had no idea there was a small cafe in that building.     i was now walking down Edgewood Ave and ended up in a small parking lot where i saw a cute bright orange KIA. These cars are so adorable. I couldn’t find more orange as i continued down the road but i looked down to find some orange spray paint beside the University lofts.. what does this mean anyway?   My time was up so i headed back to the classroom and we shared our experiences. I personally enjoyed this strange but fun activity. I started at Sparks Hall and ended up...

His & Hers: Designing for a Post-Gender Society Summary

Suzanne Tick’s “His & Hers: Designing for a Post-Gender Society” article focuses on society’s issues on acceptance and change. In this case, “Identity is no longer clearly defined as female or male” (Trick) this has raised problems in fashion, architecture, schools and workplace. “With the confusion of gender roles today, outward appearances are often confusing. Boys look like girls, girls look like boys” (Trick). Transgender people have been viewed as outcasts but their voices have been heard over the years. They have been standing up to institutions and corporate America. One major obstacle they face is how today’s landscape is “predominantly male perspective”. Men occupy the power roles in the workplace therefore, their prime space is specifically deigned for them. So what about transgender people? This bring an even bigger conversation. “This is an essentially human phenomenon” (trick). Soon enough eniviorments will be created to which people can have their own...

Built Environment: Emory University

Emory University is a private research University located in Metropolitan Atlanta. Emory University was built in 1836 in Oxford, Georgia then relocated in 1915 to its current location. Emory University has nine academic divisions: Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Goizueta Business School, Laney Graduate School, School of Law, School of Medicine, Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Rollins School of Public Health, and the Candler School of Theology. There is no huge fence surrounding the campus but the buildings make it hard to see the outside streets. It doesn’t even feel like you’re in Atlanta when you are on campus. The buildings are Fairley close together and have a modern look. Emory is somewhat hard to navigate through because of the small roads and limited access. One huge obstacle is only people with a campus card can access the buildings so only students and faculty have access. The colors that come out the most at this location are green, white and brown. Green because of the park-like atmosphere it gave, the smell of the fresh grass and plenty trees. All most all the buildings are the same color, white and brown. White marble type of building with brown roof. Since Emory is known for being a great school I felt good walking around the campus. Emory University is my dream school so I was really happy being there. The environment is so clean and calm. The only down side is the ambulances and fire trucks running back and forth almost every 30 minutes due to hospitals surrounding the campus. I was at Emory University till 7:30pm,...
