Workshop: ONE LAB: BIODESIGN


ONE LAB: BIODESIGN for students, architects, scientists, artists, and individuals of all backgrounds to explore design with various living matter including live tissues, bacteria, tree, grafting, fungi growth control and parametric scripting. One Lab is designed for students who wish to engage with the crossover of design and science. The lab concentrates on recent advances in the biotechnology and computation, both in theory and practice.
One Lab offers a new means of design inquiry where students will actively use the tools and technologies of live sciences. The participants will learn the processes of biotechnologies such as genetic engineering, tissue culture, and cloning), growing materials, grafting trees and plants, scripting and computational modeling for controlled growth. Students will have access to bio laboratories, techniques and expertise.
This summer approximately 40 researchers will gather in New York City for 3 weeks of intense creative and scientific exploration. TerreLab provides a unique opportunity for students to learn from internationally recognized scientists: Dr. Oliver Medvedik; Dr Ellen Jorgenson; Dr. Dickson D. Despommier and renown designers and artists: Vito Acconci, Natalie Jeremijenko, Marc Forens and many more. The Lab consists of a Seminar Week (guest lectures from international scholars and designers) and Workshop Weeks where the participant will chose a series of day-long workshops. All classes are beginner level and no previous knowledge or experience is required.
