Juror Comments: This submission situates emergent materials analysis, testing, and building integration within the realm of creative design thinking. Within this context, faculty and students elevate performance based-design as a sustainable vocabulary, not only as a formal ordering system that demonstrates applied materiality, but also, how those flows could ultimately become integrated products with embedded material intelligence. The range of scales from simulation to fabrication is particularly noteworthy when viewed through the lens of creative innovation and invention.
