Andrew is a registered architect who is currently pursuing his Doctoral degree at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. He along with colleague Jason K. Johnson authored Firefly in 2010 as an add-on to the Grasshopper interface. Firefly is a comprehensive toolset dedicated to bridging the gap between the digital and physical worlds. It allows near real-time data flow between Grasshopper and the Arduino microcontroller and will read/write data to/from internet feeds, remote sensors and more. His doctoral research at the GSD explores how recent advancements in technology can help architects create more intelligent spaces and systems that have a capacity to meet changing individual, social, and environmental demands.
