Pattern from the Lumen project

Different from traditional architecture, architect Jenny Sabin’s Sabin Design Lab in Ithaca, New York investigates the interaction between architecture and science. They apply theories from biology and mathematics to designs, fabrication, spatial inventions and materials. The firm is a combination of engineers, architects, designers, artists, and even scientists. The scales of their work varies, from installation to a building facade. I find the form of their projects very appealing because it is dynamic and organic. It seems random but also has order and system to it.
detail of the project

The newest project Lumen creates a space I really want to experience. It is very interesting because of the fabrication materials, the shapes of each element and how the structure come together.
