Cellophane House is a five-story, off-site fabricated dwelling commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art's exhibition Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling, on display July 20 through October 20, 2008. All of the components of the house including the wall partitions, stairs, bathrooms, NextGen SmartWrap™ facade, and walkways are fabricated independently and simultaneously, so the assembly of individual housing components is not dependent on the completion of the others.
My involvement focused primarily on developing the glazing systems. In collaboration with Arup and Schüco we designed and engineered the integration of the PET, curtain wall, and photovoltaic systems.
