Mary Hale is an Associate Teaching Professor in the School of Architecture at Northeastern University where she teaches design at all levels, from introductory architecture studios to advanced studios and workshops emanating from her design research and creative practice. Her studios have been published through the RAIC CCUSA Academic Summit on Architecture, the ACSA Teachers Conference, the ACSA Annual Meeting and the Trienal de Arquitectura de Lisboa. In 2021 Hale began researching the work of Stull and Lee and their Ruggles Transit Station for her course ARCH1450: Understanding Design, which precipitated ongoing research with students and historians Lucy Maulsby and Amanda Lawrence for a recent exhibition about the station at Northeastern University. Hale’s design research is otherwise most notably evidenced through her research, curation, and design for The New Inflatable Moment, a peer reviewed, public exhibition at the Boston Society of Architects. Hale also leads ROYHALE Design, a creative practice through which she collaborates with choreographers, video artists and sound artists to design architectural spaces for immersive performances. Recent work includes inflatable performance environments for “Dance Like No One is Whale Watching” and “Shimmer”– multimedia dance, video, sound and architectural installations; and “The Parksville Murders” – a VR horror opera. Hale holds a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies from Brown University and a Master of Architecture from MIT.
