We were happy to give all early career researchers the opportunity to engage in an open experience exchange with our visiting Professor Jenny Sabin at the Status Seminar on Friday, November 17, 2023.

Jenny Sabin was visiting us from Cornell University, where she is the inaugural Chair for the new multicollege Department of Design Tech and the Arthur L. and Isabel B. Wiesenberger Professor in the area of design and emerging technologies in architecture. She is Principal of Jenny Sabin Studio, an experimental architectural design studio based in Ithaca, NY USA and director of the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell AAP, a hybrid research and design unit with specialization in computational design, data visualization, and digital fabrication.

Her work and research investigates the intersections of architecture and science, and applies insights and theories from biology and mathematics to the design of material structures. Sabin’s research probes the hybridization of algorithmic design techniques generated thru the analysis of biological design problems with experiments in fabrication and material construction. Sabin Design Lab, based at Cornell Architecture, is currently working on a new NSF URoL: EN funded project with emphasis upon responsive materials and building skins, morphogenesis, bio-inspired design, programmable matter, and adaptive architecture.
In this interdisciplinary seminar, Prof. Sabin briefly presented aspects of her work, but the focus was on the questions and issues raised by the EC participants of the seminar. Each of them gave a three-minute presentation of their work and had the opportunity to discuss topics related to their own doctoral or postdoctoral research with Prof. Sabin in an informal setting.
They also discussed career issues, such as better understanding opportunities in the United States, and benefit from Professor Sabin's experience.

To further deepen the intense discussion, Prof. Sabin invited all participants to a follow-up meeting on December 11, 2023.
