Assistant Professor Yun Kyu Yi and Associate Professor Scott Murray announce a new lab called the Responsive Architecture Lab (RAL). The lab is focused on contributing to the development of high-performance architecture through its responsive engagement with climatic factors, energy criteria, human experience, systems innovation, and design computation. As our lab becomes more established, we hope more faculty and students will join our team to collaborate together on future projects.
The Plym Distinguished Professorship
The Plym Distinguished Professorship is a very special position within the School of Architecture. It was made possible by a gift to the School in 1981 by the late Lawrence J. Plym of Niles, Michigan. Mr. Plym was past president of the Kawneer Corporation. Mr. Plym and his family have a very warm association with the Unversity of Illinois and the School of Architecture.
