Campus Perspectives

February 14 – April 12, 2012

This series provides a platform for Rensselaer professors and researchers to share in-depth perspectives on their fields of inquiry. Inviting an exchange of ideas on campus and providing a window into a singular vision, these events are geared toward experts and non-experts alike.

Using biological polymers as construction material, Rensselaer Architecture professor Zbigniew Oksiuta will present his research on creating biological living habitats and projects developed by his students.
