I was responsible for designing facades using fiber reinforced polymer and exploring the duality of a cladding system that is also occupiable. The first part of the research project included the development of booklet that compares FRP to other comparable materials such as precast concrete, glass fiber reinforced concrete, and ultra high performance concrete. I created and updated design packages of the most current iteration. I used Rhino, VRay, Grasshopper, and Adobe Creative Suite to complete the tasks.
