|This international competition winner for Seger Park's water spray feature Philadelphia, PA was awarded in 2011. The project is still being developed and fund raising is continuing to bring this fluid concrete design to children of Philadelphia.|
|The Variant Exposure Intelligent Light Screen (V.E.I.L.S.) project was a 12 day Design Build where the students were tasked to create an intervention in the Dean’s window, where temperatures could get to 120 degree during a sunny winter day. This aluminum perforated screen developed, creating a simple and elegant passive screen vanquishing any need for blinds and a much less need for AC. (Spring 2012)|
|This 10 day Design Build was to create an atmospheric transformation of the banal studio environment. The third-year students were tasked to conceptualize, budget and execute. The end result became a 15’x30’ light and environmental filter hovering over the top of the studio. (Spring 2011) |
Bali Marina Research Centre
The Bali entry into an international ideas competition for a Marina Research Centre was Howe's first foray in parametric modeling. The concept for the building was to create a leviathan creature of the Centre which would manifest itself as a literal and figurative protector of the Bali coastline during a tsunami, the main research performed at the Centre.

This design also won Juror's choice at the Design Communications Association 2014 Faculty Design Awards.
