About this Event

Living Construction

Speaker: Prof Martyn Dade-RobertsonProfessor of Emerging TechnologyUniversity of Newcastle

I am the Professor of Emerging Technology at Newcastle University where I specialise in Design Computation with a special interest in emerging technologies particularly Synthetic Biology. I am the Co-Director or the HBBE and have degrees in Architectural Design, Architectural Computation and Synthetic Biology and am the author of over 50 peer reviewed publications including the book: The Architecture of Information published by Routledge in 2011. I am currently the editor for the forthcoming Routledge book series on Bio Design and have written the first book 'Living Construction', which was published at the end of 2020.


In this presentation I will introduce the work of the Living Construction Group integrating the design of Engineered Living Materials into building construction at multiple scales. Through in vivo (in the living) and in silico (digital computational) work, I will describe the first steps towards systems that integrates the analysis and synthesis of material construction through engineered biological agents.
