Integrated Design Studio Open House

The Winter quarter studio review took place on March 16th at the Niehoff Studio with six groups of engineering students presenting. In addition to instructors Dr. Richard Miller and Professor Frank Russell, participating UC faculty included Dr. Margaret Kupferle and Dr. Steven Buchberger (School of Energy, Environmental Biology and Medical Engineering), Dr. Herbert Bill, Dr. Heng Wei, and Dr. George Suckarieh (School of Advanced Structures). Cincinnati Museum Center staff Steve Terheiden, Sandy Shipley, and Regina Hall also attended the presentation. Six student teams presented with proposals for traffic alternatives for the intersection of Ezzard Charles Dr, Western Ave and Winchell Ave; options for replacing the I-75 bridge at the Ezzard Charles intersection with a landmark structure in Cincinnati; a new exhibit area in the museum for educating youth about stormwater management and water efficient appliances; possible applications of geothermal energy and natural lighting into the Museum’s existing structure that increases the use of renewable energy; replacing the CMC’s surface parking area with an innovative parking structure and a green roof including gardens, an urban farm, and bioswales that slow stormwater runoff.
