Jason Oliver Vollen is a Registered Architect and researcher focused on emerging material technologies, specifically, the integration of energy per-formative structural ceramics and envelope systems, dynamic and environmental simulation, and digital fabrication. Prior to joining RPI, Vollen was an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona working in the Emerging Material Technologies Research Group focusing on next generation design strategies based on the integration of emerging technical systems. Vollen is a principal with Binary design, a collaborative practice focusing on energy effective architecture and emerging material processes. He has worked with Matter Architecture Practice in New York and as a project manager, designer, and fabricator with the Cranbrook Architecture Office. Vollen received his Bachelors (B.Arch) from The Cooper Union Institute for the Advancement of Science and Art and his Masters (M.Arch II) from Cranbrook Academy of Art.
