Lynn has been at the intersection of the digital and physical in both architecture and design culture in general. The buildings, projects, publications, teachings, and writings associated with his office, Greg Lynn FORM, have been influential in the acceptance and use of the advanced technologies germane to the aeronautic, automobile, and film industries in architecture.
In 2002 he led a group of UCLA students to participate in the Venice Biennale of Architecture representing the United States in the U.S. Pavilion. In 2008 he received the Golden Lion at the 11th Venice Biennale of Architecture, and in 2016 he was commissioned by the Architectural Imagination to contribute a project to the US Pavilion at the 15th Venice Biennale of Architecture. In 2003 he was honored with the American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award. Forbes magazine named Lynn one of the ten most influential living architects in 2005, and in 1999 Time Magazine named him one of 100 of the most innovative people in the world for the 21st century. He was named a 2010 Fellow of United States Artists (USA). His work is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal where he recently opened the final of three “Archaeology of the Digital” exhibitions that he curated, which focus on the development and use of computers in architecture. He is the author of eight books.
Lynn is a Professor at UCLA Architecture and Urban Design. He received his M.Arch. from Princeton University and his B.Phil. and B.E.D. from Miami University of Ohio.
