College of Architecture, Planning and Design



School has barely started and our 5th year shop class is already whipping out stools in 3 class periods.

General Meyers and Provost Mason will be visiting APDesign on Monday, September 12 at 9:50am in the LARCP corner at APD West. This is an open forum for all students, faculty and staff to attend.
A big shout out to Caleb Amundson, Kat Arndt, Nicole Baith, Jacob Becker, Kelsey Castinado, Emma Cole, Breann Davis, Emily Erbert, Chelsea Flickinger, Chris Garcia, Kendall Harvey, Samuel Jung, Whitney Lawson, Rachel Marks, Alex Marschman, Francisco Pergola, Steven Scott, Patrick Smith, Garrett Steinlage and Nicole Taylor for having their Design Research abstracts selected to be presented at the International Conference on Education, Research and Innovation (ICERI).  Their work will also be published in the conference proceedings.  The ICERI conference will be held in Seville, Spain, November 13- 16th, 2016.    
This is an unprecedented event in the history of IAPD in terms of 100% acceptance rate at an international conference while competing with professionals and educators. What an honor this is for our students and IAPD is so proud!
This weeks SPARK meeting will have a focus on sketching! We will explore several different ways to spark your creativity. If you are interested in learning more about ideation, hand rendering, or creative doodling come to the meeting @ 7PM in the IAPD end space. See you all there!
Our student chapter of IIDA is back in full swing with several events coming up! This Thursday (9.15) there will be a Kick Off Event from 7-8P in Justin Hall. Nichole Finke and Erin Hurd will be coming in from Kansas City to meet with both IAPD and Interior Design students to talk about IIDA as well as discuss upcoming events. There will be food and door prizes, and all students are welcome to attend regardless of previous membership. In addition to the Kick Off Event, Color+Couture is also underway. Meetings are on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8P. If you can make either of those days we would really appreciate your help! Another event to keep in mind is Design Wars on September 30th. More information will be given at the Kick Off Meeting on Thursday.
Please be reminded that the IAPD office will need a copy on file of your insurance card before you go on field trips.  You may bring your card into the IAPD office and we will make a copy for you.  Please get this done asap!
Sebnem's 3rd year studio is currently working on a project involving a child's discovery toy.  The toy will be specified by a certain age group and a field of study (such as math, music, history, art or science).  The mid crits are on September 16th.  On the 18th 3rd year leaves for Denver and will be visiting a few firms, seeing a Rockies baseball game and touring the Mile High Stadium among many other fun and educational activities.  Thanks to Kaitlyn Edge for the update.
