    NORTHFIELD — A pioneer in the field of “living architecture,” Rachel Armstrong, will give a presentation called “Icological Cities” at Norwich University’s Plumley Armory on April 3 at 7 p.m. as part of its Todd Lecture Series.

    Armstrong is the co-director of Advanced Virtual and Technological Architectural Research, which specializes in architecture and synthetic biology at the Department of Architecture and Landscape, University of Greenwich in London.

    In her work, Armstrong is looking into new ways to build materials called “living architecture,” a movement that suggests buildings can share properties of living systems. Her TED lecture titled “Architecture That Repairs Itself?” has received more than 750,000 views.

    Her lecture at Norwich is free and open to the public.

    The Todd Lecture Series is named in honor of Army Maj. Gen. Russell Todd and his wife, Carol, in gratitude for their dedicated service to the university.
