Soomeen Hahm

On this episode of PA Talks, we are joined by Soomeen Hahm, a design researcher, educator, architectural designer, and the founder of SoomeenHahm Design Ltd. Soomeen gained her Bachelor of Architecture degree at the Beijing Tsinghua University and her Master of Architecture degree at the Architectural Association. After her graduation, she delved into generative and algorithmic design using computer coding, interactive/responsive environments, and digital fabrication processes.

Her latest research focuses on AR/VR, wearable machines, and human-computer interaction. She has also taught and lectured at numerous institutions such as AA and Bartlett. Soomeen tries to tackle the issue of the computational design paradigm in collaboration with other experts from the field. In this episode, we talked about digital fabrication tools, augmented realities in architecture, and one of her innovative works: the Steampunk Pavillion.

Soomeen Hahm is the founder of SoomeenHahm Design Ltd, a design researcher, educator, and architectural designer. Academically she is currently a design faculty and robotic researcher at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Soomeen gained her Bachelor of Architecture degree at the Beijing Tsinghua University and her Master of Architecture degree at the Architectural Association where she studied in the Design Research Lab (DRL). After her graduation, she developed her interests focusing on research in generative and algorithmic design using computer coding, application of multi-agent systems in design, interactive/responsive environments, behavioral patterns of natural systems, as well as robotic fabrication processes and digital modes of production.

Soomeen Hahm

Her latest research focuses on AR/VR, wearable machines, and human-computer interaction. She is specialized in coding, digital simulations, and 3d modeling in various software platforms. Since her graduation, Soomeen has taught and lectured at numerous institutions in the UK and internationally, teaching studios, workshops, and short courses focusing on computational design. In addition to this, she is contributing to various online educational platforms and digital toolset libraries. While participating in different academic events, she tries to tackle the issue of computational design paradigm in architecture across multiple scales, through collaboration and exchange of knowledge with other experts from the field. She is experienced in teaching design studios. She used to direct multiple design studios at the AA and the Bartlett.

Soomeen Hahm

The design studio she directed at the Bartlett – BPro AD – developed a series of innovative projects within architectural design discourse focusing on design and construction by augmented humans. She is also an experienced designer who worked several years at Zaha Hadid Architects and Zaha Hadid Design where she engaged in designing some of the most iconic buildings and products.
