Jenny E. Sabin is an architectural designer whose work is at the forefront of a new direction for twenty-first-century architectural practice — one that investigates the intersections of architecture and science, and applies insights and theories from biology, emerging technologies, materials science, and mathematics to the design of material structures and spatial interventions. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
Andrew Lucia is a designer and artist specializing in a computational approach to the analysis and production of data and form in relation to aesthetics and perception. Through a systems approach to design and materiality, Lucia’s research agenda focuses on the structure of ambient light, material organization, surface, and the environments in which they are produced. Prior to his current academic appointment as Cass Gilbert Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota, Lucia was a visiting lecturer and critic at Cornell University, AAP (2011–2015), faculty in Visual Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Design (2008–2011), and notably a founding member and Senior Researcher within LabStudio from 2008–2015. Lucia is principal of the design and research practice ALDeR, previously having practiced architecture as designer and project manager in the offices of Yunker+Asmus Architects and M+A Architecture; as a designer in the offices of su11 architecture+design, Ruy Klein, and Barkow Leibinger Architects; and as project team member for Keller Easterling Architect. Lucia’s solo and collaborative works and writings have been published and exhibited internationally, including Leonardo Music Journal, Science, American Journal of Pathology, the New York Times, Wired Magazine, SimAud, Cornell Journal of Architecture, ACSA and CENTER, Ars Electronica and FRAC. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
Peter Lloyd Jones is a biologist, whose discoveries have uncovered fundamental mechanisms in embryogenesis and human disease, including breast cancer and pulmonary hypertension. Jones’s work actively seeks and finds new solutions to complex problems via extreme collaborations within seemingly unrelated fields, including industrial, textile, and architectural design. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
