 Thatch For The Century, SodaBIB Designs by Jason Van Nest and Farzana Gandhi

Opening lecture on Thursday, September 22, 2011 at 6:30 pm, there will be a reception following the lecture.

 

New York, N.Y. (June 20, 2011) - Architecture professors at the New York Institute of Technology have designed an innovative new bracket to solve shelter problems in developing countries. The proposed bracket re-uses common water bottles as a roofing material in a project that may have far-reaching effects in building trades and consumer markets. They will present their invention, called the SodaBIB, in a lecture scheduled for September 22, 2011.

Assistant Professor of Architecture Building Technology, Jason Van Nest, RA, and Visiting Assistant Professor of Architecture, Farzana Gandhi, LEED AP, will present research for their invention, the Soda Bottle-Interface-Bracket (BIB), as well as NYIT student work that contributed to the design of SodaBIB.

The presentation will include demonstrations of architectural software for writing simple computer programs used to design SodaBIB: work in Rhinoceros (a NURBS surface modeler), Grasshopper (a parametric design aid), Kangaroo (a physics modeler), and Revit (building information modeling platform).

The SodaBIB design, student research, prototype mock-ups, and continued research will be on display from September 8 - 29 at the New York Institute of Technology's Manhattan Campus, Gallery 61, located at 16 West 61st Street on the 11th floor. Professors Van Nest and Gandhi will speak on September 22, 2011 at 6:30 PM.
