Tom Wiscombe, founder of EMERGENT, a Los Angeles-based firm internationally known for operating at the forefront of digital design, spoke at Texas A&M’s Architecture Lecture Series April 25, 2011.
EMERGENT’s work is driven by models of biology and computation, as well as by contemporary design sensibilities.
The May 2009 issue of ICON Magazine called Wiscombe “one of the top 20 architects in the world who are making the future and transforming the way we work.”
Wiscombe also worked with students in the inaugural Mitchell Lab Visiting Designer Program, made possible with funds from the $2.3 million Mitchell Initiative, a gift funded by the Bryan N. Mitchell family, owners of History Maker Homes in Fort Worth.
Students worked as a group with Wiscombe to create a futuristic housing prototype with special attention to technology’s role in the design.
