Edison Redux

April 5, 2010

Project by Anne Miller.

A focus on research, exploration of the contemporary tectonic and economic possibilities of concrete construction, and effects produces a critical reinterpretation of the work of Thomas Edison. The systems of construction considered could have far reaching implications for low-cost rapid-construction, from inherently urban projects to remote post-disaster housing. The potential of this study extends far beyond Edison’s ideas and into a new way of thinking about concrete.
