metaCAVE v.2, Thesis Project, Spring 2009, Cornell University Department of Architecture
Project by: Eddy Man Kim / Thesis Advisers: Dana Cupkova + Kevin Pratt

metaCave v.2 was developed from a prototyping exercise employed to help understand how component-based design strategies can be sequenced into construction. This required the project to set its design parameters and constraints in the context of readily available building materials and CAD/CAM technologies. The decision to build a full-scale prototype was pursued in order to exhaustively investigate the feasibility of atypical construction techniques.
