Zoe Zeitler

My undergraduate studies have been an interdisciplinary combination of Engineering, Environmental Science, Architecture, and further relevant topics in the areas of Science, Design, and the Humanities. My culminating thesis offers a concrete embodiment of self-organizing systems in the form of a self-assembling structure. Based in origami mechanics, this architectural design is aimed at folding flat-sheet modules with minimal labor to reduce energy and material consumption of construction. Via an iterative process of parametric optimization, life cycle assessment, and material testing I aim to produce a durable self-assembling pavilion. Post-graduation I plan to work in sustainable design, environmental science, and urban planning.
