    Abstract:

    Thesis statement: The architecture employed in the U.S. correctional system should fulfill its basic functional purpose of security and embody a level of beauty that maintains the human dignity of its detainees while promoting a sense of normality and a spirit of rehabilitation.

    Abstract:

    Modernism’s materialistic view of the human person denies beauty and the transcendental in man and in the family. To awaken wonder and respect for the transcendence of the human person, great beauty in architecture should be made through an imitation of nature in the Classical tradition to reflect the beauty of the family. A shrine to Our Lady of Fair Love is therefore proposed to be an object of beauty where pilgrims can come to experience the beauty of human life and love in a tactile way.

    Abstract:

    This longitudinal study examined relations between the physical quality of housing, neighborhood, and their interactive effect on the life course development of 341 U.S. rural children from ages 9–24 years. Standardized instruments assessed housing quality (structural, clutter/cleanliness, indoor climate, hazards, crowding/privacy) and neighborhood quality (street connectivity, density, land use mix; proximate building/sidewalk conditions; neighborhood stability; proximity to nature/amenities…

    Abstract:

    Although sociodemographic factors are one aspect of understanding the effects of neighborhood environments on health, equating neighborhood quality with socioeconomic status ignores the important role of physical neighborhood attributes. Prior work on neighborhood environments and health has relied primarily on level of socioeconomic disadvantage as the indicator of neighborhood quality without attention to physical neighborhood quality. A small but increasing number of studies have assessed …

    Abstract:

    Pain catastrophizing is among the strongest predictors of pain intensity. This study examined the role of the nearby natural environment in the experience of pain among community-dwelling adults with chronic pain (N=81) living in New York City and explored the notion that attention may underlie nature’s effect. Nearby nature was objectively measured using satellite data. Daily diary data across 14 days was employed to operationalize pain catastrophizing (and subscales: rumination, helplessnes…

    Abstract:

    Chronic crowding within housing adversely affects psychological well-being, yet little is known about how design attributes contribute to these effects, especially among children. This cross-sectional study first examined associations between residential interior density and children’s (M = 9 years of age) perceived bedroom and home crowding. Second, analyses investigated whether interior design attributes (residential floor plan arrangement measured by space syntax [depth and permeability]; …

    Abstract:

    Although the benefits of nature exposure to human health are well documented, less is known about the psychological benefits of exposure to nature indoors. This study observed whether the addition of greenery to a workplace setting improved psychological well-being and performance of employees. A crossover study among 63 adults examined perceived psychological well-being and objective memory task performance with and without indoor greenery present in an open workplace setting. Statistical an…

    Abstract:

    A repeated-measures study, conducted with 57 college students in a research kitchen-dining area, examined effects of floor plan openness on eating behaviors. Openness was manipulated via folding screens placed in an open plan kitchen-dining area to simulate separate, enclosed kitchen and dining spaces. Effects of the open floor plan, characterized by greater visibility and convenience of food access when compared with the closed floor plan, on three eating behaviors were examined during a buf…

    Abstract:

    Background Strategies to reduce childhood obesity and improve nutrition include creating school food environments that promote healthy eating. Despite well-documented health benefits of fruit and vegetable (FV) consumption, many U.S. school-aged children, especially low-income youth, fail to meet national dietary guidelines for FV intake. The Cafeteria Assessment for Elementary Schools (CAFES) was developed to quantify physical attributes of elementary school cafeteria environments associated…
