In discussion with Nancy Diniz, cofounder, bioMATTERS, hosted by Dr. Melissa Sterry
Centred on biofutures in design, this session will explore how emerging and anticipated developments in biomaterials, biofabrication, and biocomputing may shape the future of product, furniture, and interior design. We’ll discuss issues including how we may re-think design practices to be in balance with the evolving ecological world, and how we create more opportunities for inter- disciplinary collaboration and knowledge sharing. Nancy Diniz is an architect and Co-Founder of bioMATTERS. Parallel to her practice, she has published her work widely and is Course Leader of the Masters in Biodesign at Central Saint Martins, UAL, London.
