Last month supporters of modern poured-concrete design were in for a rude awakening when they heard NJIT Assistant Professor Matt Burgermaster
's presentation at the 64th annual meeting of the Society of Architectural Historians, "Edison's Single-Pour System: Inventing Seamless Architecture".
NJIT Assistant Professor Matt Burgermaster
illustrated how Edison invented and patented in 1917 an innovative construction system to mass produce prefabricated and seamless concrete houses.
Also in attendance were the pastor of the church and his English speaking wife, the church warden and the burgermaster
, who is the equivalent to our mayor.
