Adam Blaney

Lecturer in Responsive Architecture

Prototyping, (Re)Programmable Matter, Interdisciplinary Design and Fabrication

I am a researcher and a designer with a background in architecture. I joined Imagination Lancaster in January 2020. My research interest mainly focuses on rethinking and developing digital design and fabrication processes, through prototyping, that creates responsive, adaptive and self-healing objects, products and architectural structures. My ongoing work combines design, computation, hardware and chemistry to create radically new material abilities that explores the potentials of reprogrammable matter. Additionally, I am interested in documenting practice-based research in new and fun ways to enable a wider array of outputs. My work has been presented and published in a range of international conferences and journals.
