Visitors to the College of Design should use the Coliseum Parking Deck (201 Jeter Dr, Raleigh, NC 27606). A permit is not required, but it is paid parking lot – visit the Transportation website for more information. Enter the Coliseum pay lot from Cates Avenue just south of the deck on ground level. Pedestrians may then go through the tunnel in order to get to the College of Design.

There is a limited number of parallel parking spots directly outside of Brooks Hall on Pullen Road. These are first-come, first-served, and are paid spots. For information about hourly pay spaces, visit the Transportation Website.

Weekdays after 5 pm and on weekends, parking on campus is free and not monitored, so visitors are welcome to park in the Boney Lot, which provides easier access to the College. Custom directions here.

Ryan Tevebaugh’s [B.Arch ‘10] of @dowbuilt rec Ryan Tevebaugh’s [B.Arch ‘10] of @dowbuilt recently worked on this Hawaiian family retreat along with @olsonkundig.

This 17,200-square-foot family retreat on Hawaii’s Big Island takes the form of several canopy-like pavilions dispersed around the site, linked by elevated wooden lanais and a series of gardens. 

Hale Lana, which translates to “floating home,” appears to hover over the site’s lava fields and dense gardens. The home takes a position at the ecotone line between the heavily landscaped area and the expansive ocean views which stretch to Haleakalā volcano on nearby Maui.

Say hello to our new Department Head of Art + Desi Say hello to our new Department Head of Art + Design, Derek Ham!

In addition to his appointment, Ham serves as the principal investigator for the multi-disciplinary MX Reality Lab, which works to create impactful changes in the user experience of virtual, augmented, and mixed reality technologies. Students from graphic design, industrial design, computer science, and electrical and electronics engineering explore opportunities for commercialization and wide adoptive use of VR/AR technology.

Ham's research interest spans the areas of game-based learning, algorithmic thinking, and digital fabrication/making. In his work, he continues to investigate both virtual reality and augmented realty technology to find ways these tools can expand the possibilities of interaction design. 

Before joining the faculty in the College of Design, Derek has taught at MIT’s School of Architecture, Harvard’s Graduate School of Design (GSD), and the Rhode Island School of Design.
