Fengqi (Frank) Li earned his Ph.D. from the Center for Architecture Science and Ecology (CASE) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. His interdisciplinary works explore interactive built environments in both physical and virtual settings. He is a distinguished M.Arch graduate of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union and the School of Architecture at Syracuse University with a B.S. in Engineering from China. Fengqi’s professional experience in research, education, architectural design, and system engineering facilitates his cross-disciplinary approach to design. Fengqi’s current work continues to expand on past projects incorporating emergent materials and technologies, especially network theory and system optimization, into environmental speculations through fabrication and digital simulation.
