          Team Lead and Web Developer|Apr, 2017Current

          A HI-SEAS Habitat Design, built to be sustainable, functional, humanitarian and beautiful. Our design of HI-SEAS, Crawwwl, focuses on solving the problems that the previous experiments simply aren't tackling. Crawwwl is unique because it targets the psychological dynamic: it orchestrates interior design to prevent arguments and mental exhaustion in the long-term, extremely close proximity living of the Hab. By providing each team member with ample socialization in ideal community spaces as well as private study and chill rooms that allow intellectual recharge, the crew stays cohesive, hard-working, happy, and in top mental and physical shape.
