The theme of my collection is Structural Dimension. During my time Here at Cooper Hewitt, I have spent my time designing different pieces that have had many points of view/ perspectives. We have played with different materials and dimensions (2-D and 3-D) that have been used to create solutions to different problems and prompts in a very unique way. In my collection I have included images of items that I have created and items that I feel add to my theme of structural design.
Design as a needs-based expression of a user
This is an online portfolio of the projects I worked on during the fall semester of Design Scholars. I worked in groups and individually on hands-on projects to learn more about architecture, landscape architecture, and interior design. I learned a lot about design in the real world from professional designers. Visiting Weiss/Manfredi and a design college also gave me a new perspective of the process of design.
Over the course of the Scholar Program, the underlying theme that has resonated with me is design's interaction with people. I like to think of design as problem solving -- and for the majority of my time with the scholar program, I have learned to focus on developing projects to fit a group of people or other subjects.
This collection features some of the most famous examples of Early Christian Art as well as a bit of background/historical information over most of the pieces featured within this art collection.
Consideramos lamentable que en algunas organizaciones se elabore mal su Metodo Cientifico ,
o no analizan las Etapas del Metodo Cientifico, en otros casos realizan una inadecuado
Tipo de Investigacion, No conocen las aportaciones de Aristoteles,
Por todo ello:
- Se redacta la Visión sin base científica alguna, solo se busca una frase motivadora que se dice es el sueño de un líder.
- Se redactan objetivos operativos los cuales se los confunde con objetivos estratégicos.
- Lo peor es que en la mayoría de estos “Planes Estratégicos” no se incluye ninguna estrategia.
- O sea son Planes que de Estratégicos nada tienen.
Alineación Estratégica es el modo de vincular el trabajo diario de los empleados con los objetivos del nivel superior de su organización.
Por el contrario no existe alineación estratégica cuando los empleados y colaboradores no saben cómo contribuyen específicamente con su esfuerzo diario al logro de la Visión de su empresa o institución
El modelo incluye la Alineación Estratégica de todas las gerencias

In this student activity, students will investigate nine portraits of people involved in the Civil War, both from the Union and the Confederacy. Through these portraits, students will gain an understanding of: experiences of people on both sides of the war; why these people are seen as historically significant; and how portraiture can communicate how a person wanted to be seen, or how others wanted them to be seen. Included with each portrait is a video that explains the historical significance of the person depicted.
- Why are these people, and the developments they shaped, seen as historically significant?
- How does portraiture communicate how a person wanted to be seen, or how others wanted them to be seen?

This collection briefly introduces the art of incision and inlay in ancient Korean ceramics as a unique method of creating imagery that can be both meaningful and beautiful. While these traditional ceramics known as celadon were not unique to Korea, as a functional art form they did reach new heights of craft and expression during the Goryeo Dynasty (935-1392) thanks to design innovations. One of the most notable modifications made by Korean potters was the practice of cutting away some clay (incising) and adding a different type (inlay), to create contrasts, patterns, shapes, images, and other visual and physical effects.
As with other kinds of traditional Korean visual art, the images created on ceramics include familiar Korean folks motifs such as animals, plants, or elements of nature that carried specific aspirational meanings. This collection also provides examples of such folk images portrayed in ceramics, and explores some examples of such symbolism, as an inspiration for users to create their own images in a creative workshop.
In terms of end goals, this collection will:
- Introduce Korean traditional incised ceramics
- Help users learn to recognize the technique
- Introduce Korean folk images portrayed in such ceramics, and their symbolic nature
- Inspire users to create their own Korean folk-style image
The Scaglione Antique and Vintage Office Museum
This collection features American made hole punches manufactured between the years 1874 and 1932.
Hole punches have been around since the early 1870’s therefore, we have a great selection of antique and vintage machines for review, examination and collecting. The development of punches really took off in the early 1900’s and improvements followed. Many machines produced today are based on designs dating to 1912.
Today, we refer to this office machine as a hole punch. During the period dating from 1874 to the 1930's these machines were known as paper punch, hole punchers, perforators, or paper perforators. There was no real standard for a machine that punched hole.
In 1882 James Shannon filed for a patent for his paper file. While the patent is for a complete paper file, his patent described the paper punch that was part of his invention. After reviewing the patent one is left wondering if he was at a loss as to what to call his hole punch. As a result his invention is overlooked by many and the credit for the invention of the hole punch has been credited to someone else.
Even now, some examples are proving to be more desirable to collectors and are harder to find. The Globe No. 4 produced by Globe-Wernicke is one such machine that has a following of not only the punch collector, but by collectors of the machine age. This machine appears to draw the most interest from individuals wanting an old paper hole punch for the desk or collection. Another example is the early examples of the Tengwell which had a nicely scrolled plate and was mounted on a beautiful oak base.
Variants hold their own interest to many collectors. You will find the same machine, such as the Improved Hummer, was produced by different companies. Research has shown that many companies or their assets changed hands more than once during the century and that the machines were never improved upon or only minor changes were introduced, usually just parts on the machine or the manufacturers name.
When examining the early machines, it is easy to see these machines are historic. They were developed and manufactured during the mechanical revolution, Simple in design yet dependable. These 19th century designs are what you would expect of the era and this is where the concept of paper punches began.
Many paper hole punches have been lost to time, because of modernization, workmanship or better material. Examples such as the Sam’l Tatum’s Samson, Eclipse, and the No. 27 are just a few of those machines that were lost or discontinued. These machines were the work of Walter Mendenhall, long time employee of the Tatum Company. Compared to the punches today, these machines are complex and curious. Their mechanisms were unique in design and never copied by any other manufacturer.
