Choma has been developing a fabrication technique that allows him to create structures by hand-folding fiberglass &mdash; a technique that he describes is as simple as folding paper.</p> <figure><p><a href="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1028x/ft/ftx03pto0otngqj7.jpg" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/1028x/ft/ftx03pto0otngqj7.jpg"></a></p><figcaption>Photo credit: Ken Scar, Clemson University</figcaption></figure><p>By selectively coating resin on fiberglass cloth, parts can fold easily along the fabric hinges, Choma describes. The process doesn't require any molds or fasteners, which could mean less production cost and less material waste. In developing the technique, Choma is driven by the belief that fiberglass will become&nbsp;a primary building material in the next decade, possibly replacing steel. Typically used as a secondary component, fiberglass is noted for its resistance to corrosion and to harsh elements like fire. Choma's technique indicates that it's...</p> https://archinect.com/news/article/132333013/with-modern-charleston-building-off-the-table-clemson-looking-to-lease-space-for-its-architecture-center With modern Charleston building off the table, Clemson looking to lease space for its architecture center Alexander Walter 2015-07-20T13:15:00-04:00 >2015-07-25T14:43:09-04:00 <img srcset="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0c/0cc45d60ab24231e077246140d45830b?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650 1x,https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0c/0cc45d60ab24231e077246140d45830b?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=2 2x, https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0c/0cc45d60ab24231e077246140d45830b?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650&dpr=3 3x" src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/0c/0cc45d60ab24231e077246140d45830b?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=650" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Clemson University plans to lease space in downtown Charleston to house all of its locally based architecture and historic preservation programs until it decides on a permanent location.
