The MFA in Applied Craft and Design welcomes Ginger Krieg Dosier as part of the 2013-2014 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Ginger Krieg Dosier holds a Master of Architecture (2005) from the Cranbrook Academy of Art and a Bachelor of Interior Design (2000) from the Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the American University of Sharjah College of Architecture, Art and Design, United Arab Emirates. Prior to arriving at AUS in 2007, Dosier was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the North Carolina State University College of Design.
In 2012, Dosier founded bioMASON, a unique biotechnology start-up manufacturing company that employs natural microorganisms and chemical processes to manufacture biological cement-based masonry building materials with the aim of revolutionizing the building and construction industry. A bioMASON brick is “grown,” not “fired.”
Over the past eight years she has devoted research in the choreography of materiality with an environmental focus, engaging in co-research forums and cross-disciplinary collaboration; seeking a scientific understanding of the properties of material in relation to architectural performance.
