The BioBabes collective is an international team of feminist biodesigners, makers, and biohackers engaged in the design of better futures. A multicultural, multidisciplinary group that started at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in 2015 exploring the possibilities within the realms of biodesign. 


We are experienced designers working with a range of construction materials and fabrication processes, which include living organisms and organic matter. We work to disseminate biodesign to a wider audience with innovations related to the emerging field of biofabrication. 


The collective is currently set up as a creative bio-centered research, design, and biofabrication consultancy studio with a cross-disciplinary approach. We welcome collaborations with designers, scientists, makers, and local industries, to enrich our research through design processes in order to secure a range of industry-standard biobased materials and products for the consumer market.
