With strong links to Jenny Sabin Studio, the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell AAP is an experimental design research lab that investigates the intersections of architecture and science, and applies insights and theories from biology, physics, engineering and mathematics to the design of material structures. We ask, “How might architecture respond to issues of ecology and sustainability whereby buildings behave more like organisms in their built environments? What role do humans play in response to changing conditions within the built environment?” The Sabin Lab is interested in probing the human body for design models that give rise to new ways of thinking about issues of adaptation, change and performance in architecture.  We collaborate with scientists and engineers and employ architects, designers and artists. Our research projects are diverse and operate across multiple length scales from the nano to the macro. The Sabin Design Lab specializes in computational design, data visualization and digital fabrication.
