JENNY SABIN’s work is at the forefront of a new direction for 21st century architectural practice - one that investigates the intersections of architecture and science, and applies insights and theories from biology and mathematics to the design of material structures. Sabin is Assistant Professor in Design and Emerging Technologies in Architecture at Cornell University. She is principal of Jenny Sabin Studio, an experimental design studio based in Philadelphia, and director of the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell AAP, a hybrid research and design unit.
