Research and Creative Activities

Nathan Howe is a graduate of Kansas State University and holds a Masters of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin, where he studied under Michael Benedikt. Nathan now teaches at Kansas State University after stints of teaching at the University of Nebraska and assisting in design studios at the University of Texas. Nathan’s research interests examine how emergent technologies and techniques of digital fabrication can transform the architecture design process, both in academia and practice, from its conception in parametric form-making through the fabricating device which manufactures the idea. His work has been exhibited internationally and his K-State team’s proposal Fluidscape won the international competition for the Seger Park water scape in Philadelphia, PA.  He has been an invited critic at schools of architecture across the country. He has also juried the international competitions. Nathan's home has become a lab of sorts for his work, as a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) router which claimed a room just off the main living space now resides in its own shop and provides Nathan with a personal lab from which to experiment.
