Muncie, IN, US



Adam Buente is a recent graduate architect and holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Master of Architecture with a Concentration in Fabrication from Ball State University’s College of Architecture and Planning. He has maintained a strong interest in full scale design/fabrication, focused on innovative assemblies and techniques. Much of this has come out of a partnership with the Institute for Digital Fabrication and previous experience in design and construction.


Currently, he and Kyle Perry are pursuing the focus of PROJECTiONE through a new venture, starting up a design / fabrication studio based around the potentials investigated as an architectural thesis. They hope to keep up the momentum, pushing towards an interesting new practice and future projects. Look for more to come!



PROJECTiONE, Partner / Owner

I am one of two partners of PROJECTiONE, a young design / fabrication startup located in the Midwest. We are currently getting into all kinds of projects including, but never limited to, architectural design, exhibition / installation design, tangible interactive design, public / private art commission, product design / development, CNC fabrication / coordination, prototyping / material testing, design / fabrication consulting.

We are always on the lookout for interesting new projects!
