In the spring semester of 2006, Jess Maertterer collaborated with Professor Andrew Saunders at the School of Architecture, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in teaching an advanced level architecture studio dealing with computational patterning.

Jess provided expertise instruction and knowledge through the creation of a private online forum for the students of the studio. Jess' commitment to the studio within 24 hour assistance proved not only beneficial to the studio on a day to day basis, but served as an excellent reservoir of knowledge for the students throughout the semester. Jess' selfless commitment as well as his unparalleled expertise in the field of design scripting with for Rhino3D had a huge impact on the quality of the final projects of the studio.

The experience has lead to a lasting curiosity by the students and a continued desire to peruse methodologies introduced in the studio by Jess. It is a privilege to have collaborated with Jess and I hope that this is only the beginning of a long term relationship with RPI.
