VMS Meeting Mar 13 – Joe Dahmen and Amber Frid-Jimenez

March 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“They Grow Without Us” mycelium-based benches by AJFD

AFJD uses material exploration and emerging technologies to provoke fundamental questions about our relationship to architecture. This talk will look at AFJD’s recent architectural installations using mushrooms-based materials. Their practice is eclectic and multidimensional, which reflects the changing culture of design and technology.

They’ve been working together for fifteen years, after finishing degrees at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Amber Frid-Jimenez is Associate Professor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, where she is a Canada Research Chair in Art and Technology. Joe Dahmen is Assistant Professor of Design and Sustainability Integration at the University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, and a faculty associate at the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies.
