BIO + SKILLS
John Briscella is an American artist, industrial designer, architect, urban strategist, technologist, machinist, entrepreneur, and educator with the goal to inspire the potential of Art and to create a movement in Design. Focused on the research of complex systems and the use of emerging technologies as an approach to designing in the 21st century, John co-founded AMiNiMAL studio.
The philosophy of simplifying complexity with the advancement of technology has been a technique used in his design approach to create intricate functional forms. While John's intentions to master many different skill sets and disciplines is prevalent in his body of work and trajectory, his passions are the main determining force and focus. His designed spaces focuses on creative interactivity and community involvement. His love for city planning has connected people and their memories. The zen practice of archery has led him to redesigning a bow with generative forms. And, the involvement in software consulting pushes the limits of the possibilities with future technologies.
As an educator, John's enthusiasm is energized by creating a movement in Design by matching the advancement of design tools and determining one's passions. By exemplifying new ways of thinking about design, the strategy and approach is a collaboration / co-creation with software. The designer determines the intent and goal of the design and the software aids in the problem solving of the form and material. Insight to the new role of future designers, generative design software, and robotic manufacturing / 3D printing.
