Good design matters.

It touches everything around us. It drives innovation. And it has the power to make life better for everyone.

An Update on the Allred Gallery Floor

The floor of the Allred Gallery in Kamphoefner Hall was inspired by the work of well-known architect Le Corbusier. As we learn more about the history of this designer from contemporary research, we are learning more about his unfortunate ties to groups that excluded and persecuted others. The values held by Le Corbusier, particularly those of homophobia, misogyny, and fascism, are not held by the College of Design. Our mission is to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for any individual who enters our space to work and learn.

We make sense of the world for the benefit of the public. Our rigorous programs prepare students to develop solutions that serve the greater good, and our research has life-changing impact.

🚗 🚌 🚛 We're driving toward better design. Well, kind of.

Graphic design students at the College of Design partnered with @redhatinc to create solutions for a world dominated by driverless vehicles.

Throughout the studio, students had to imagine a future in which the public no longer had access to personal vehicles. 
Then, they had to ideate how autonomous vehicles can fit into various human factors such as family needs, career specializations and security concerns.

Take-out food has been a culinary staple for decades, but traditional plastic and foamed polystyrene containers end up in landfills and are not sustainable. 🥡🍟🥤

To combat packaging waste, the College of Design worked alongside @eastmanglobal to create environmentally-friendly food packaging using a new compostable material.

Eastman enlisted the College of Design to transform a new biodegradable and compostable material the company had created. Senior industrial design students created take-out containers with the entire supply chain in mind — containers that are easy to assemble, pack, eat from and dispose of. The end result promises added sustainability in the restaurant industry.

"The most enjoyable and difficult moment I remember while studying architecture was when I stayed up all night preparing for a review with my studio friends. 

We were close to each other during the moments, and we spanned almost 20 hours a day. We were encouraging and leading each other, and also we were eating and chatting together. When I look back on my five years of journey at the studio, the moments where I thought I was very discouraged and frustrated were actually the most shining day of mine. The studio is always up and on 24/7. The studio lighted up those days for 5 years like moonlight in the night.

Five years of NC State made a big turning point in my life. 

It had new programs that I could experience and met new people that I could make social with people who have various communication with many topics, so it became a steppingstone of the opportunity the experience abundantly and develop my future carrier and my future about the architecture.

After I graduate, I will develop my career further by training in architecture, which is the beginning of my life as a newcomer to society. I am about to marry my loved one, a new beginning that will come soon.

I am so thankful to my beloved parents, my sister Jane, my husband Young, my precious friend Leah and Sky. Also, Ashely helped me finish school well by having Chipotle time, and studio mates who spent the time with the studio stayed over each night. I realized that there were many people I was thankful for until graduation day." - Soya Kim [B.Arch. '22]
