2010 Research Fellows: PROJECTiONE
i.M.A.D.E is pleased to announce that Adam Buente and Kyle Perry, of PROJECTiONE, will be Institute Research Fellows during the 2010 fall semester at Ball State. Recent Ball State Architecture and i.M.A.D.E graduates, PROJECTiONE just received a Citation for their BitMaps project in Architect Magazine’s R+D Awards. In addition to conducting their research, Buente and Perry will serve in an advisory role for the Institute’s operations, conduct CNC production workshops, and participate as critics in design juries.
Adam Buente is a recent graduate architect and holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture with a Concentration in Fabrication from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning. He has maintained a strong interest in full scale design/fabrication, focused on innovative assemblies and techniques. Much of this has come out of a partnership with the Institute for Digital Fabrication and previous experience in design and construction with firms including Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects and VPS Architecture.
Kyle Perry is a recent graduate architect and holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture with a Concentration in Fabrication from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning. His previous work experience was completely outside the realm of architecture as a raft guide for many of his undergraduate summers. He has worked for a number of years for the Institute for Digital Fabrication as a Research Fellow and is interested in the changing pedagogy/practices of architecture, uncommon processes of design to fabrication, and graphic design.
Perry and Buente are two members of PROJECTiONE [n. proj-ekt wuhn], a collective started last year as a collaborative thesis, focused on the contemporary relationships between digital and analog processes in design and fabrication. PROJECTiONE defines itself through new understanding of tools, processes, and methods that reveal innovative solutions to design problems and expressions of craft.
Currently, Perry and Buente are pursuing the focus of PROJECTiONE through a new venture, starting up a design company based around the potentials investigated through there time as graduate students. They hope to keep up the momentum of PROJECTiONE, pushing towards an interesting new practice and future projects.
