Molly Mason

Molly Mason is an architectural designer and fabricator. She earned her B.Arch from Pratt Institute in 2015 and spent several years practicing architecture, construction, and digital fabrication in New York City. She is interested in computational design and fabrication, robotics, transformable structures, programmable materials, interactive fabrication, and the relationship between craft knowledge and computational thinking. Her research is both about how technology creates environments capable of dynamic change and how our own understanding of self and body changes by our relationship with technology.
