  • Time to put this thing to rest! Draft finished, Sign-off received. Now if only my committee wasn’t taking off for holidays … #thesising #algaetextile #lookoutworld

  • PLASTICS in Architecture and Construction
    This book seeks to fill that gap by providing an introduction to the structural and design possibilities of plastic. It introduces the material and its specific characteristics, describes various types of plastic in terms of their relevance for building, explains processing technologies and presents typical products and components. A concise presentation of twenty-five international built projects – organized by the type of application and the plastic involved – documents the broad range of plastic in architecture. Finally, a look ahead at the future describes the current state of the art in materials research.
