Hello,
I'm a student at New Jersey Institute of Technology's school of
Architecture, currently working on a design of a home for my professor.  The
site is located in the middle of a corn field, and I am interseted in
incorporating the corn plant in some way with my architecture.I have my own
assumptions, but I wanted some form of reassurance.

My question is:
Is there a way to use the stalk from the corn to make paper or fabrics, as
with the hemp plant?  And how would it compare to the strength or efficiency
of the hemp plant?

Please respond as soon as possible as I need this information for my
presentation.

Thank You,
Peter-C. Morris
