Materials, Structures, Functionality
Our research in the Programmable Structures Lab focuses on the fundamental interaction between geometry,
hierarchy and nonlinearity to design structural systems with intrinsic properties enabling adaptation, autonomy and environmental responsiveness.
Andres Arrieta has received the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, their most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty. His project is
"The Mechanics of Hierarchically Multistable Metastructures."
