Iowa State University welcomes everyone to their Student Innovation Center with the following:

“You have big ideas.  Ideas that can make the world a better place.  You want to start making a difference.  The Student Innovation Center is designed with innovators like you in mind.  It’s the nexus on campus where all Cyclones are invited to innovate through experimentation, interdisciplinary collaboration, and the free exchange of ideas.  It’s where you can see your dreams make an impact.”

Mindy Aust served as Project Manager, while at Substance Architecture, collaborating with KieranTimberlake, to deliver a state-of-the-art, one of a kind building for Iowa State University
