LDFxOpenCell 2019 Recap


I am a registered architect and partner of bioMATTERS, a company developing products manufactured 100% out of waste.

In my research and design practice I develop projects that operate in-between the human body and architectural scale and engage topics pertaining to biotechnology and computational design.

I teach courses on emergent sustainable materials with a focus on biomaterials and computational design. In my teaching and practice I have been developing design workflows that involve biocomputation and biofabrication techniques with the aim to develop innovative sustainable products.

I curate exhibitions, symposia and workshops internationally, some include 'Artificial Realities: Virtual as an Aesthetic Medium in Architectural Ideation' an exhibition and symposium for the Lisbon Architecture Triennale 2019, Lisbon and the "Data & Matter" exhibition at the GAA Foundation in Venice as a parallel event of the 2018 Venice Architecture Bienalle. My work has been exhibited internationally at various events and venues including NYCxDesign 2019, 'Fashion Digital Night' for Milano Fashion Week 2019, Venice Architecture Biennale, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Istanbul Design Biennale, The Today Art Museum, China, EYEBEAM NY, MILAN EXPO 2015. I am recipient of numerous grants and fellowships namely from New York State Council on the Arts/Storefront, MacDowell Colony, EYEBEAM, Arctic Circle, US, Seoul Art Space Geumcheon, Korea and The Foundation for Science and Technology, Portugal.
