Sasa Zivkovic is an assistant professor at Cornell AAP where he directs the Robotic Construction Laboratory (RCL), an interdisciplinary research group investigating robotic based construction technology.
Zivkovic is a coprincipal of HANNAH, an experimental architecture practice based in Ithaca, New York. HANNAH's research focuses on advancing traditional building construction techniques by implementing new technologies and processes of making, addressing subjects of construction, rapid urbanization, and mass customized housing design. In close collaboration with the high-tech building industry, HANNAHH and RCL explore the implementation of construction techniques such as additive concrete manufacturing and robotic wood construction.
Led by Leslie Lok & Sasa Zivkovic, HANNAH was named Next Progressives by Architect Magazine in 2018 and won the Architectural League Prize in 2020.
