When the Gainesville Police Department's crime prevention unit
requested help, Richard Schneider and his class answered.
Schneider, professor of urban and regional planning, and his
class of 23 graduate and undergraduate students spent
the semester partnering with the police in an effort to deter
burglaries and robberies around Gainesville by analyzing and
suggesting changes to environmental elements.
This is known as crime prevention through environmental
design, or CPTED, and according to Lt. Art Adkins of the
Gainesville police, Schneider is a leader in the field.

The interior design junior studio is collaborating with a soon-
to-be-formed non-profit group to rehabilitate and adaptively use
the former Koger Gallery and Gardens Museum in Jacksonville as
a Community Arts Center and Living Arts Alternative
Constructed in the 1960s, the original building and later addition
were designed by Robert Broward, a well-known modernist
architect who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright. The building was
initially an art museum for the city of Jacksonville and was then
converted to a private gallery featuring the Asian art collection of
the Koger family.

Dr. Edward Minchin recently had a paper published by
arguably the top construction research journal in the world, the
ASCE Journal of Construction Engineering and Management,
published monthly by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
Entitled "The Fall and Rise of the Largest CM-at-Risk
Transportation Construction Project Ever." The paper was
published in the journal in September (Volume 135, No. 9, pp.
401-410). A second paper, "Owners Respond: Preferences
for Task Performance, Delivery Systems and Quality
Management," was also accepted for publication.

The first is an authorized translation of Chapter 5 of the
Canadian architectural historian Alberto Perez-Gomez's new book
"Built upon Love;" the second, a reflection on the modern writer
Franz Kafka's essay "The Great Wall of China;" the third, a
hermeneutic interpretation of the Chinese Indonesian architect
(currently an adjunct associate professor of the UF School of
Architecture) Albertus Wang's built design project "A House

Professor Gary W. Siebein presented five papers at the 159th
meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in San Antonio,
Texas in October 2009:
"Soundscape Design Applications for Transportation
Noise," co-authored with Robert Lilkendey (UF, M.Arch 1997),
Hyun Paek (Siebein Associates, Inc.), and Chris Jones (Siebein
Associates, Inc.) focused on three case studies that demonstrate
soundscape methods for assessing noise impacts and proposed
mitigation strategies for train, traffic and rail noise impacts.
"Integrating Acoustical Issues in the Design of 'Green'
Schools," co-authored with Robert Lilkendey, Hyun Paek, and
Chris Jones and "Integrating Acoustical Issues in the
Design of High Performance Schools" co-authored with
Robert Lilkendey, Hyun Paek, Reece Skelton (UF, M.Arch 2008)
and Chris Jones presented a core set of acoustical planning
principles that can be implemented early in the design process
so that LEED and ANSI 12.60 criteria for classroom finishes,
sound isolation and building equipment noise can be met as the
"Acoustical Education in Architecture" addressed the
philosophical and technical basis for the research, design, and
technical course work developed by Siebein and professor
emeritus Bertram Y. Kinzey, Jr. for the architectural acoustics
curriculum at UF.
"Soundscape Documentation of Parks and Natural Areas,"
co-authored with Lucky Tsaih, Sang Bum Park (current Ph.D.
students) and Reece Skelton, focused on a multi-media method
to document the distinctions among qualities of sounds with
relatively similar levels in a natural, outdoor environments.
