Juney Lee Receives Marvin E. Goody Award
MEng candidate, Juney Lee, has received the Marvin E. Goody Award for his work, Structural Design Explorations Using Grammatical Graphic Statics. “Instead of defining parameters and constraints as one would in the conventional CAD paradigm, this approach defines rules and behaviors of form generation. It introduces the designer to a much broader and richer design space through rapid generation and exploration of unique solutions that are guaranteed to meet the design objective,” Lee said. The $5,000 prize is awarded to an MIT graduate student close to completing a thesis that addresses at least one of these aims: extending the horizons of existing building techniques and materials; encouraging links between academia and the building industry; and increasing appreciation of the bond between good design and good building.
