Jenny Sabin: Matter Design Computation (Biosynthesis and New Paradigms of Making)

Date/Time
Date(s) - September 17, 2019
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This talk will present ongoing trans-disciplinary research and design spanning across the fields of cell biology, materials science, physics, fiber science, fashion, mechanical and structural engineering, and architecture. Sabin’s collaborative research, teaching, and design practice focus on the contextual, material, and formal intersections between architecture, science, and emerging technologies. This talk will elucidate the research methods, prototypes, and applications that Sabin and her collaborators have achieved, which include adaptive building skins, textile and ceramic assemblies, and architectural interventions that ultimately (re)configure their own performance based upon local criteria and human interaction.
