The upcoming Digital Architecture Open Lecture will be given by Sarat Babu from Betataype on Thursday 26th October at 6PM in Marlowe Lecture Theatre 1.
Sarat is a Designer and Engineer based in London, working at the convergence between Architectured Materials, Industrial Design, Computational Geometry and Additive Manufacturing. He founded and currently runs Betatype; which creates technology — from the micron to the metre — to maximise what can be achieved with additive manufacturing, to open doors for all sectors to the benefits of additive manufacturing technologies. We do this through our deep expertise in the fields of design, engineering and computation. We build technologies that help to navigate the new frontiers in the man-made.
Sarat has been the recipient of various awards and grants; including Materials Innovation Fellowship 2015, Proof of Concept Funding for Medical Engineering Solutions in Osteoarthritis 2014, Industrial Fellowship: The Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, 2011 and Dyson Foundation Bursary 2009.
He lectures internationally and his work has been published and exhibited internationally.
