The PCI Foundation program at the New Jersey Institute of Technology ended with the final review of seventeen diverse precast designs. Co-sponsored by MAPA and PCI Northeast, the studio design challenge centered on the creation of a hydroponic research facility on a challenging narrow urban site bordered by a transit line and I-95. Led by NJIT Asst. Professor Matt Burgermaster, the students went through an intensive program of learning about precast construction, creating molds and making plaster test pours, and responding to a challenging research facility design program.

The students responded with a stunning variety of cutting-edge precast designs utilizing such techniques as fabric forms, photographic transfer, embedded radiant heating, and translucent concrete.
