Marcelyn Gow is a partner and founding member of servo Los Angeles, a design collaborative invested in the development of architectural environments integrating synthetic ecologies with shifting material states.
servo’s projects integrate a combination of digital and analog techniques of design and fabrication and consider how this coexistence affects the objects that are produced, as well as their inherent aesthetic qualities. Current projects include a forthcoming installation at LAMAG—the
Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. Recent work includes exhibition design for Bonniers Konsthall, a proposal for a multipurpose lecture hall in Stockholm, and a proposal for a hydrodynamic vegetated roofscape in Cancun. Publications include a monograph entitled Networks and Environments and projects in Digital Architecture Now, Hatch and The New Mathematics of Architecture.
Gow received her Architecture degrees from the Architectural Association and Columbia University, as well as a Dr.Sc. from the ETH Zurich. She has lectured internationally and contributed to numerous journals including Perspecta, Via and AD. She currently teaches graduate design studios and critical studies seminars SCI-Arc.
