Skylar Tibbits: Self-Assembly & Programmable MaterialsThere is a disciplinary convergence upon us, one that spans from the nano-scale to the human-scale. We are now able to program nearly every material from bits to DNA, proteins, proto-cells, smart materials, even products and infrastructure. There is a growing demand to translate these capabilities into solutions for large-scale applications rather than purely small-scale technologies. The Self-Assembly Lab aims towards the built-environment, from manufacturing, construction, infrastructure and products to develop more adaptive and highly resilient systems. They have demonstrated that self-assembly is scale-independent and have produced prototypes transforming from 1D, 2D to 3D and even 4D Printing aimed at inventing a future of programmable built environments.Skylar Tibbits is a Research Scientist in MIT’s Department of Architecture, teaching graduate and undergraduate design studios and co-teaching ‘How to Make (Almost) Anything’, a seminar at MIT’s Media Lab. He was recently awarded a 2013 Architectural League Prize, The Next Idea Award at Ars Electronica 2013, the Visionary Innovation Award at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, a 2012 TED Senior Fellowship and was named a Revolutionary Mind in SEED Magazine’s 2008 Design Issue. MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab, directed by Skylar Tibbits, focuses on self-assembly and programmable material technologies for novel manufacturing, products and construction processes. He is the founder and principal of a multidisciplinary design practice, SJET LLC.Previously he worked at design offices including Zaha Hadid Architects, Asymptote Architecture and Point b Design. He designed and built large-scale installations at galleries around the world, has been published extensively in, for examples, the New York Times, Wired, Nature, Fast Company. He has a Professional Degree in Architecture and minor in experimental computation from Philadelphia University. Continuing his education at MIT, he received a Masters of Science in Design Computation and a Masters of Science in Computer Science under the guidance of Patrick Winston, Terry Knight, Erik Demaine and Neil Gershenfeld.Skylaras Tibbitsas: „Medžiagų saviorganizacija ir programuojamosios technologijos“Jau galime programuoti bemaž viską: bitus, DNR, baltymus, išmaniąsias medžiagas, net produktus ir infrastruktūrą. Didėja poreikis perkelti šiuos gebėjimus iš laboratorijų į didesnio masto projektus. Laboratorijos „Self-Assembly Lab“ siekis – kurti itin lanksčias ir atsparias sistemas, kurias galima taikyti gamyboje, statyboje, infrastruktūroje, gaminiuose. Įsipavidalinančių objektų atgaminimas nepriklauso nuo projekto masto. Laboratorijoje sukurtus 1D ar 2D prototipus galima spausdinti 3D ir net 4D spausdintuvais.Skylar Tibbits (MIT Architektūros fakultetas, JAV) – apdovanotas mokslininkas ir dizaineris, užsiimantis eksperimentiniu medžiagų dizainu. Laboratorijos „Self-Assembly Lab“ įkūrėjas ir direktorius. Šiuo metu dirba prie programuojamųjų medžiagų technologijų ir gamybos bei statybos procesų inovacijų MIT Architektūros ir planavimo mokykloje. 2014 m. pelnė WIRED Inauguracinį apdovanojimą, 2013 m. – Architektūros lygos prizą, Ateities idėjos prizą festivalyje Ars Electronica ir Vizionieriškos inovacijos apdovanojimą. 2012 m. tapo TED vyresniuoju mokslo darbuotoju.
