Katia Zolotovsky, a researcher at MIT, will lecture on “Guided Growth – The Interplay between Shape, Material and Life”, on Nov 8th, 11:30 AM, at the Green Room (G2.2). This free-admission lecture is jointly organized by DAU and LabART Architecture Lab – Research Center.
Katia Zolotovsky’s work uses bacteria cells and applies computational methods of synthetic biology to grow active and adaptive building components for architecture. As both an architect and a biologist by education, Katia creates workflows that combine methods from architectural design, materials science, and synthetic biology.
