Bellucci, Justin T Senior Instructor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Justin is particularly interested in the convergence of IT and building technology in both the commercial and residential markets as well as IoT for agriculture. The focus of his research has primarily been on integrating building science with biological monitoring of honeybees using advanced sensor networks. Justin is very interested in how monitoring of honeybees at a large scale can inform management practices, hive design and ultimately the health of honeybees. Justin hopes to combine his design background with engineering knowledge to solve some of our world’s toughest design problems.

courses taught

  • ARCH 4010 - Architectural Appreciation and Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Introduces basic processes and principles of architectural design. Provides a basis for understanding and evaluating architecture.
  • ARCH 4100 - Studio 3: Capstone in Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    The capstone of the studio sequence, this course investigates building technology, structural systems, user experience, and environmental sustainability. Studio options may include a client-based community engaged project, real world applications, and/or result in a physical product. Outcomes include well developed structures designed with a high level of craft, resulting in sophisticated and exhibit-worthy presentations.
  • ARCH 4115 - Architecture Building Technology
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    Through experimentation and testing, the fundamentals of building physics and climate science are taught in this interactive seminar. Students learn the concepts related to structural and mechanical systems necessary for proper building function by first studying and then implementing the key systems through hypothetical building assignments. This class covers active and passive green building systems that are necessary when designing structures for an evolving climate.
  • ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
  • ENVD 1102 - Design and Communication 2
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Using both lectures and drawing exercises, this class extends understandings of the representational conventions used by the design professions through its introduction to the possibilities offered by traditional techniques for the advanced practices for design visualization, representation, and communication. Recommended corequisites: ENVD 1104 and ENVD 2003.
  • ENVD 1104 - Introduction to Environmental Design Methods
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Explores the forces and conditions that interact to shape the designed environment. It does so through a lecture sequence and parallel set of design exercises introducing students to the theory and practice of environmental design. It develops student understandings of the central role design thinking plays as the unique process used to effect appropriate change in the designed environment. Recommended corequisites: ENVD 1102 and ENVD 2003.
  • ENVD 2120 - Environmental Design Studio 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Exposes students to a sequence of design investigations that lead to the development of design concepts for critical evaluation and discussion. The intent of this introductory design studio is to expose students to the fundamental design practices that are common to the disciplines of environmental design, planning, urban design and landscape design - that share the responsibility for shaping the designed environment. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 3115.
  • ENVD 3300 - Special Topics: Intermediate Design Lab
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Design lab exploring new and emerging themes in environmental design. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 3352 - Intermediate Digital Applications
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    Intermediate level computing skills for design analytics and representation.
  • ENVD 4352 - Special Topics: Computer Methods
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Topics include animation and environmental simulation, computational methods of technical evaluation and optimization, and computational mapping and analysis. May be repeated for credit by petition.
  • ENVD 4365 - Special Topics: Technology and Practice
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Provides an advanced seminar on new technologies and issues of professional practice in the environmental design professions.
  • ENVD 4919 - Teaching Assistant
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2021
    By special arrangement with instructor. May be repeated up to 99 total credit hours. Recommended prerequisite: 3.00 GPA.
  • EPOD 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Introduces students to innovative emerging technologies and techniques in digital fabrication and design through a project-based studio environment. Students will be asked to develop design solutions that could be leveraged to benefit humanity through material investigations, cradle-to-cradle methodology, and more advanced methods in design optimization.
