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.
