Professors Jason Van Nest and Farzana Gandhi presented their research on the Soda Bottle Interface Bracket (“SodaBIB”) roofing project at a lecture featuring research with NYIT students on Thursday, Sept. 22 at NYIT Gallery 61. Their invention, which NYIT has begun to patent, is an idea to reuse water bottles as roofing materials in support of an architectural role in environmentalism, and sustainability. They aim to propose new ways architects can help society, like by giving common materials a second lifecycle before recycling.  (Find out more at SodaBIB.org) They also recently placed as finalists in the recent ACADIA/FLATCUT Competition – their design was for a table supported by a reversible tensegrity structure made from 4mm diameter rubber tendons and matching 4mm diameter steel rods.
