Augmented Materiality: Modelling with Material Indeterminacy.

Ryan Luke Johns is a research specialist at the Princeton University School of Architecture and co-founder of GREYSHED, a design-research collaborative focused on robotic fabrication within architecture, art, and industrial design. He is interested in inventive workflows and procedures that engage computational complexity using commonplace components. He explores interactivity and indeterminacy in design and fabrication through digital mediation and robotic manipulation, while simultaneously promoting material efficiency and craft.

Ryan holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with a concentration in Mathematics from Columbia University (2009) and a Master of Architecture from Princeton University (2013). He was recently a recipient of Princeton University’s Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Prize (2013) and the KUKA Young Potential Award at Rob|Arch 2012. He has served as an assistant instructor for courses in computation, construction and fabrication at both the undergraduate and graduate
levels.
