Event Information

Open to





Shneel Malik

This event will be livestreamed on the school's YouTube channel.


Taught jointly by The Bartlett School of Architecture and UCL’s Biochemical Engineering Department, Bio-Integrated Design MArch/MSc brings together a spectrum of multi-disciplinary academics, practitioners and students, combining design experimentation with scientific methods, seeking new modes of simulation and production, and exploring how advances in the fields of synthetic biology, material science and digital fabrication are changing future design practices.

Over the course of two days, an interdisciplinary team of students from Bio-Integrated Design MArch/MSc will showcase projects from a range of design and research areas, including:

  • Robotically extruded organic waste
  • Integrated bioelectrochemical systems
  • Bioporous structures
  • Plant-tissue cultures embedded within biocompatible scaffolds

Our students’ work integrates biotechnology, advanced computation and fabrication to create a radically new and sustainable built environment. 

Please join us live on the school's YouTube channel to watch the student presentations, and to celebrate their work, as they share their learnings from the past 21 months.
