Recorded on June 26, 2014.

The Architectural League Prize, established in 1981, recognizes exemplary and provocative work by young practitioners and provides a public forum for the exchange of their ideas.

In her League Prize lecture, Jenny Sabin describes the foundations of her work as applying conceptual models from biology and nature to architecture in a deep investigation of material systems and form. Deeply influenced by weaving, knitting, and ceramics, Sabin partners with scientists, artists, and others to create new models for transdisciplinary collaboration. She presents six projects: Foyer Tapestry, which weaves sound patterns in thread using a digitized jacquard loom; Branching MorphogenesiseSkin, which investigates the building as an organism using passively responsive materials and sensors; Generative Fabrication, a prototype to print clay stoneware using 3D printing technology; Digital Ceramics: PolyMorph; and myThread Pavilion.
