Peter Goché, an Iowa State University assistant professor of architecture, will receive two regional awards for his work from the American Institute of Architects Central States Chapter. Goché’s “Water Hutch” will receive an Excellence in Architectural Detail Merit Award and his “InsideOute” project will receive an Excellence in Architecture Merit Award at the AIA Nebraska / Central States Excellence in Design Gala Thursday, Oct. 5, at Gallery 1516 in Leavenworth, Neb.

Reminiscent of the many waterways that meander through the open flat of northeastern Iowa, “Water Hutch” is a sinuous line consisting of three oxbows constructed of white cedar. Conceived as a standalone sculpture or as part of a community of similar components arranged in a series that make up a larger installation, the work can be placed in various contexts. It has been exhibited in multiple regional contemporary art institutions. The initial work was acquired as reception area seating by Faegre Baker Daniels law firm in Des Moines, which also commissioned a second, similar installation.

“InsideOute” consists of an archive/open-air classroom at Black Contemporary, a defunct seed farm now used as a field station dedicated to the study of spatial phenomena and perception. The series of spaces (gallery, sky room and earth room) serve as a venue for seminars and workshops, using the archive of collected artifacts for experimental practices and performances.

Shelby Doyle, an assistant professor of architecture and the Daniel J. Huberty Faculty Fellow in Architecture at Iowa State University, and ISU alumna Erin Hunt (BArch 2017 Architecture), a laboratory associate with the ISU Computation + Construction Lab, co-authored a submission about the spring 2017 IM_RU Pavilion project accepted for the 2017 ACADIA (Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture) Conference.

Hunt is one of only 21 students internationally awarded an ACADIA Student Scholarship to attend the conference, which will take place Nov. 2-4 in Cambridge, Mass. The IM_RU Pavilion presented architecture and public space where an individual was simultaneously confronted with a multiplicity of individual and collective perceptions. This project also challenged the expected costs of built computational projects, a parameter that often keeps these technologies cloistered in specific institutions and communities.

 

Iowa State University architecture faculty members Shelby Doyle (assistant professor and Daniel J. Huberty Faculty Fellow in Architecture), Leslie Forehand (lecturer) and Nick Senske (assistant professor) will present a workshop on “Computation as a Catalyst to Gender Parity in Architectural Practice” at the Fall 2017 AIA Iowa Convention, “Cohesion.” Their workshop will examine the gender gap in architectural technology and computational design and propose an agenda toward greater equality in academia and practice. The workshop will conclude with an overview of three initiatives in design education that reduce gender-based barriers for women within the field of architecture.

 

Iowa State University architecture faculty members Shelby Doyle (assistant professor and Daniel J. Huberty Faculty Fellow in Architecture), Leslie Forehand (lecturer) and Nick Senske (assistant professor) were awarded a 2017 ISU Women’s and Diversity Grant (recently renamed the Inclusion Initiatives Grant) to offer “Cyborg Sessions: Women in Robotics Workshop,” a free workshop introducing robotic drawing to 20 students across design disciplines. Students who identify as female were given registration priority, but all students were welcome.

This work has been supported by CCL Associate Erin Hunt (BArch 2017 Architecture) and Undergraduate Research Assistants Nick Loughrey and Sarah Schneider. It will culminate with a public lecture by Madeline Gannon of Atonaton on Wednesday, Oct. 18, part of the ISU Department of Architecture 2017-18 Public Programs: For Other Architectures.

Andrea Wheeler, an assistant professor of architecture at Iowa State University, attended four conferences over the summer where she presented her work that reconsiders eco-aesthetics in architecture, part of ongoing research funded by an ISU Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities grant.

Wheeler’s presentation at the Passive and Low Energy Architecture (PLEA) 2017 conference in Edinburgh, Scotland, is published in the conference proceedings as “Outsider ethics and marginalized aesthetics: The value of contemporary environmental philosophies for designing sustainable architecture.”

She presented “Rethinking Heidegger’s Fourfold and Luce Irigaray’s Philosophy in To Be Born,” which explored the philosophical criticisms at the heart of her theoretical investigations, at “The Genesis of a New Human Being” conference at the University of Bristol, England.

Wheeler also presented at the Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) 2017 conference in Madison, Wisconsin, and at “Compresenze. Invito ai Dialoghi / Co-existence. Invitation to the Dialogues” at Roma Tre University in Rome, which accompanied a small photographic exhibition about the question of co-existence.

Ulrike Passe, an Iowa State University associate professor of architecture, presented her paper on “Performance, data and the expanding field of sustainable design” at the 6th International Alvar Aalto Meeting on Contemporary Architecture – Technology and Humanism organized by the Alvar Aalto Academy at the Town Hall in Seinajoki, Finland, which was designed by Aalto in 1962.

Passe presented the theoretical framework which relates her interdisciplinary research into sustainable neighborhoods to architectural design thinking. The theoretical base supporting this work is Hermès V: Le Passage du Nord-Ouest by Michel Serres, where he is searching for a passageway that leads from the exact sciences to the arts and humanities. For Passe, the Northwest Passage serves as metaphor for the complex thought process between disciplines needed to produce and perceive sustainable urban environments. Based on this understanding, the paper established four overarching theoretical frames crossing between data and perception, narrative and policy, atmosphere and urban typology, technology and behavior, thus befriending quantitative and qualitative methods of research and design thinking.

The meeting was chaired by Professor Markku Hedman of Tampere University and discussed the relationship between evolving technology and changing premises for human well-being within the context of the built environment, such as virtual reality and computational landscape design, smart urban lighting and social spaces for refugee housing.
