Thora H Arnardottir

ThoraThora H Arnardottir is a hybrid bio-design/architect with a passion for pursuing analogy with nature through her work. Not merely taking inspiration from our ecology but, speculating in regards to our changing relationship with it through engineered biological systems and new material processes. Her approach sits at the intersection of design and biological fabrication from the perspective of the cultivator of these new material processes. Her work has been exhibited at the London Zoo, EXPO2017 and BIOTallinn2017 Biennale. Thora holds a masters degree in Advanced Architecture from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) in Spain, and a bachelor’s degree from the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), UK.

She co-runs a collective called BioBabes (BioCentricDesign Group) that focuses on the exploration of biomaterials and design through interactive devices.
