Nicholas Jacobson

Clinical Design Researcher
University of Colorado Anschutz
Trained as both an architect and a computational designer, I've been modeling and 3D printing since the early 2000’s. I've a particular interest in technically synthetic and logically rigorous approaches to form and fabrication. As a practiced architect and designer, I've designed buildings for aerospace, concert halls, ultra-high-end residential, operating rooms, and structures in extreme environments. I’ve worked with over 50 surgeons in the OR to understand first-hand the opportunities for new and creative designs. My work now involves developing novel methods and tools for complex surgeries leveraging disparate computational methods from numerous fields including Architecture, Animation, Fashion, Regenerative Medicine, and Structural Engineering. This work focuses on three areas of patient specific focused development: Diagnostics, Prosthetics, and Implants. My work and research have been published in books, scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers: ACADIA, AD, Aspen Institute, CAADRIA, Code LA, Huffington Post, Aspen Modern Luxury, Nature, New York Times, Sky News, Vogue and shown work both nationally and internationally. He lectured at Harvard, Stanford, UNC, and the University of Colorado. He received a Bachelor's in Architecture (Summa Cum Laude) from the University of Wisconsin and a Master of Design from the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Harvard Business School.
