Research interests

VOLUNTARY ARCHITECTURAL SIMPLICITY (VAS)
VAS is a disciplined, spirited, and committed study of one possible architectural response to the major challenges confronting us individually, socially, and globally. VAS seeks the minimal, the fundamentally uncomplicated, the direct and the conscious in order to voluntarily and critically resist the forces of today’s unconscious materialism, empty consumerism, unnecessary complexity, pollution, and life in the fast lane. VAS research develops pedagogies, theories, knowledge and skills to support architectural methods, technologies, ethics, and vocabulary that support such agenda.

EXTRAORDINARY ARCHITECTURAL PHENOMENOLOGY
This research engages transformative experiences of the architecturally sublime, that is, exceptional interfaces between mind and matter. Methods include direct architectural experiences, well documented case-studies, surveys, and existing literature (coming from as diverse sources as philosophy, psychology, neurobiology, religious studies, and the arts). The goal is to support the development of scholarship and discussion of spirituality and meaning in the built environment while fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and cross-fertilization with the sciences, humanities, and arts.

INFORMATION VISUALIZATION DESIGN
The interdisciplinary research work on Information Visualization Design covers four interrelated areas of application within the umbrella of the State of Utah funded Center of Excellence CROMDI (“Center for the Representation of Multi-Dimensional Information”— COEP Grant 2000-2005: $677,000).
CROMDI founders and PIs: Jim Agutter and Julio Bermudez (CA+P), Stefano Foresti (Center for High Performing Computing and CA+P), and Elizabeth Tajhian (School of Business). CROMDI Co-PIs: Dwayne Westenskow and Noah Syroid (School of Medicine), and Frank Drews (Department of Psychology), and Dale Richards (State and Business Consultant).
