Aimee Hultquist

Architectural Designer, New York, NY, USA

An architectural designer with a passion for research-driven design, my pursuits stem from the reality that each object in the built world is part of many systems, and has profound effects on its visitors and environment. I’m passionate about bringing innovation to life, and in our current world I believe more than ever in the immediate need for future-thinking design. My interest in ecologically-intelligent building has led me to take classes in synthetic biology and biomaterials, while in professional practice I work on designing public buildings in New York City. I envision a future where buildings function more like natural systems: operating in closed loops and no longer contributing 40% of the world’s CO2 emissions. Taking lessons from the fast-paced innovative world of biodesign, I’m seeking to make that dream a reality as we build a smarter future.
