Spatial Experience Design + Material Fabrication

Yuheng Zhu, Xiaohang Yan, William Qian, Jingxin Yang, Jingjing Liu

This independent study explores the great potential of fiberglass as a structural material, and the spatial experience it can create. It is directed by the Cornell Robotic Construction Lab (RCL) faculty. It won first place in the 2018 AIA/ACMA Composites in Architecture Design Challenge.

Yuheng contributes to design development, fiberglass material fabrication, physical study models, material load-bearing tests, and final model assembly.
