Mahsoo Salimi

Before joining Terreform ONE she was a Visiting Scholar and Research Assistant at
Professor Nikolaus Correll Lab at the Department of Computer Science at the University of
Colorado. The focus was on swarm robotics and smart materials. The projects involved new
materials that future robots and responsive spaces will be made of and how such materials
will deeply embed sensing, actuation, computation and communication in order to adapt their
physical properties to changing requirements. Mahsoo received her Master of Architecture
from University of Colorado, where she completed an independent study on Biomimetics as
inspiration for architectural design. Her goal was to use natural sets of constraints and
performances as drivers for design in the future and to utilize them in different areas such as,
form finding, customization and multi-functionality and to incorporate micro and
nanostructures into the architectural design process. She continued the initial research with
the aim to pairs nanotechnology with algorithmic tools (e.g. Processing, Python,..) for a deeper
understanding of natural systems. Her research interests are: Responsive and Interactive
Interfaces in Architecture, Synthetic Biology, Biomimetics and study macro/micro/nano-scale
components in natural organism.
