Bryan Allen is an interdisciplinary designer with a speciality in digital fabrication, prototyping, and applications of next generation technologies in design. With a background in architecture, his work ranges in scale from the micron scale to buildings and installations. He has led work to develop 3D printers, materials, design methodologies, spaces, and software to increase the adoption and explore the possibilities of 3D printing as an emerging field in design.

Bryan's teaching and work focuses on empowering designers by pursuing the ways in which digital fabrication technologies can revolutionize the creation of products, spaces, and experiences. Bryan strives to integrate traditional design process, aesthetics, and construction methodologies with the emerging possibilities that advanced sensors and data, in concert with digital fabrication, makes possible.

Outside of teaching Bryan currently runs a lab at Google focused on applying innovations and runs a creative studio based in Oakland CA.
