Hi!

The Living combines research and practice, exploring new ideas and technologies through prototyping. The studio’s work embraces the complexity at the intersection of ideas, technologies, materials, culture, humans, non-humans, and the environment. Focusing on the intersection of biology, computation, and sustainability, the studio has articulated three frameworks for harnessing living organisms for architecture: bio-computing, bio-sensing, and bio-manufacturing. The studio welcomes rapid change, embraces design with uncertainty, develops rules rather than forms, and designs with unknowable forces.

Our team is: David Benjamin (Founder and Principal), John Locke, Danil Nagy, Damon Lau, Dale Zhao, Jim Stoddart, Ray Wang, and Lorenzo Villaggi.
