+ Multifamily Housing
+ LuBan: Planar Modeling Design Tool
+ Component Forming
+ Exhibited at Center for Architecture NY.

This research project examines the role of computing and robotics in the manufacturing and assembly of a small, multifamily house to drive down costs and construction errors.

LuBan, a CAD software, was developed to modularize, planarize, and create features for concrete formwork. A series of test geometries were fabricated using this software.

After simple and complex geometries were created and cast, housing units were prototyped at the desktop scale.

This project was eventually exhibited as a part of the "Designing Affordability" show at the Center for Architecture. Utilizing technology, modularity, and digital fabrication tools, a prototype for a house was showcased.
