Join fellow GSAPP alumni for the annual Summer Social, as we celebrate the work of 2017 Young Architects Program winner, Jenny Sabin.
Sabin will speak about her work on this year's temporary outdoor installation at MoMA PS1 in conversation with GSAPP faculty members Christoph Kumpusch and Andrés Jaque, winner of the Young Architects Prize 2015.
The conversation will be followed by a reception in the installation, with a DJ set by Tom Noble (Superior Elevation).
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 the Arthur L. and Isabel B. Wiesenberger Assistant Professor in the area of Design and Emerging Technologies in the Department of Architecture at Cornell University. She is principal of Jenny Sabin Studio, an experimental architectural design studio based in Ithaca, NY and Director of the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell AAP, a hybrid research and design unit with specialization in computational design, data visualization and digital fabrication.
Sabin holds degrees in ceramics and interdisciplinary visual art from the University of Washington and a master of architecture from the University of Pennsylvania where she was awarded the AIA Henry Adams first prize medal and the Arthur Spayd Brooke gold medal for distinguished work in architectural design, 2005. Sabin was awarded a Pew Fellowship in the Arts 2010 and was named a USA Knight Fellow in Architecture, 1 of 50 artists and designers awarded nationally by US Artists. She was recently awarded the prestigious Architectural League Prize for Young Architects by the Architectural League of New York.
The Young Architects Program (YAP), is an annual competition hosted by The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that fosters innovative architecture. The winning design by Jenny E. Sabin will be on view at MoMA PS1 during the summer 2017.
