GSAPP Space Studio IV Student Bryna Anderson wins SHIFTBoston Competition

Congratulations to Bryna Anderson who won the SHIFTboston Moon Capital Competition with her proposal for a power-generating moon colony.  Bryna’s design is informed by research into solar energy generation, microwave energy transmission, artificial gravity, and Bioshpere-II-like climate constructions.

Bryna produced the project in Spring 2010 at Columbia GSAPP for Yoshiko Sato’s Space Studio IV: Lunar Habitation, for which I was a T.A.  A few students from this studio submitted for this competition, all with very sophisticated research and designs – a job well done to you all!

Come to the GSAPP End of Year Show, opening this Saturday, May 15th, at 5:00pm.  What I’m involved in: Capacitive Architecture will have an installation on the 3rd floor mezzanine of Avery Hall.  My studio this semester has an awesome exhibit in Buell Hall, East Gallery.  I TA’d for Space Studio which is on the 4th floor of Avery.  The opening is great – busy, and with food and drinks.  You can see the show for the week following the opening.

Hope to see you there!
