Jason King

Co-Founder / Principal Designer
Jason’s research focuses on adaptive architecture, robotics and fabrication. Drawing on his former career as a professional skateboarder, Jason is also interested in the planning and design of public space.  Since 2009, Jason has taught at Woodbury University, Pasadena City College, and Los Angeles Institute of Architecture and Design, focusing on computation and interactive architecture. With a $2.5m grant from the Department of Education, He helped establish the Digital Fabrication Lab at Woodbury University, which he managed for three years. Jason has over a decade of experience practicing architectural design, including designing skateparks for The Berrics and The Gorbals restaurant in an historic building in Downtown Los Angeles. His work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Los Angeles.

Jason is currently working towards architectural licensure in the State of California. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Woodbury University (2008).

Biayna Bogosian

Co-Founder / Principal Designer
Biayna’s research focuses on climatic data-driven procedural design. Since 2011, Biayna has taught digital media seminars and design studios at Columbia University GSAPP, USC School of Architecture, Tongji University and XinCheJian in Shanghai, Tumo Center for Creative Technologies in Yerevan, AA Visiting School in Bilbao. She has nearly a decade of experience practicing architectural design in Los Angeles and New York. Her work has been published and exhibited in various conferences in the United States, Spain, Greece and China.

Biayna is currently a PhD candidate in the Division of Media Arts + Practice in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California. She holds a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University (2010) and a Bachelor of Architecture. from Woodbury University (2008).

Robbie Mehring

Junior Designer / Some FAB Manager
Robbie has been in collaboration with Somewhere Something for over 2 years. He is currently working towards a Bachelor of Architecture at Woodbury University primarily focusing on responsive architecture for the sight impaired. Through his studies, he has been able to lead workshops using Grasshopper, Rhino, laser-cutting, 3-D printing, and CNC milling for students from Woodbury University, USC, UCLA, PCC, and LAIAD as well as practicing architects from several architectural firms.

Robbie is also a Senior Technician at the Digital Fabrication Lab at Woodbury University where he trains new employees how to operate, maintain, and repair the machines; he also runs orientations for incoming students and faculty on how to create an efficient work-flow with the tools affiliated with fabrication. His expected graduation is of May 2015.

Workshops
Snowflake1

Parametric Snowflakes // Dec 13

In this workshop we will learn how to design and fabricate custom snowflakes. Laser cutting allows us to cut and score delicate 2D patterns on various materials. This flexible fabrication tool enables experimentation with endless forms and patterns. Therefore, we will be using the parametric platform Grasshopper plug-in for Rhino3D, to generate and modify various custom patterns.

Grasshopper Series // Jan 4-10

This series starts with an intensive introduction to Grasshopper, and is followed by 4 topic base sessions, which are Surface Subdivisions, Mesh Topologies, Visualization, Kangaroo,  and Advanced Data Trees. Participants can choose any number of the workshops or attend all 6 for a discounted rate.

The workshop develops the workflow of motion tracking to machine actuation. Each participant will fabricate and assemble a small prototype of a multi-axis arm, controlled with a variety of sensory inputs. The project will be developed in Grasshopper and Firefly, using the Arduino micro controller. [coming soon]
