Alternative Architectures

The College of Architecture is excited to announce our second annual Architecture Symposium: Alternative Architectures featuring the work of Master of Architecture alumni who have leveraged design research in unique ways to advance their career and the allied design professions. The symposium will be held at Omaha by Design, February 9 from 6-8pm.

Moderated by Professor Jeffrey L Day, the alumni panelists include Kate Hier, Clark & Enersen principal and architect; Dale Luebbert, Polynomial founder; Nathan Miller, Proving Ground founder; and Zach Soflin, Layer founder.

While examining the various research methodologies and specific applications of design research being used by these graduates, the symposium will also serve as an opportunity to consider on a larger scale, how the insights gained through design research in all its forms might be better documented, disseminated and ultimately utilized across the broader community.

Panelist topics include integrating technology trends with meaningful digital transformations; linking field data with the digital design models; researching human movement for improved designs; and creating better communication methods for design and fabrication.

For more information regarding the presenters and to RSVP visit This event is free and open to the public.

This presentation is part of the Architecture Symposium Series featuring compelling topics in the fields of architecture that enrich the ongoing dialog around agendas which are paramount to the design disciplines and our graduates. For questions, email Kerry McCullough-Vondrak at
