Prof. CROSSLEY, Tatjana (高天雅)
Tatjana Crossley is co-founder of architectural and research practice ArchiTAG. The practice tackles issues of the experience of space, architecture’s impact and influence in the development of subjectivity, and the production of space that challenges societal histories of discrimination. She and her partner at ArchiTAG explore technological aspects of design in order to propose new modes of perceiving and fabricating our environments.
Tatjana completed her PhD at the Architectural Association, Master’s at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design (MArch II) and Bachelor’s at Rice University (BArch). She has worked in practice, for S.O.M. San Francisco, and academia, previously teaching the Diploma 20 unit and History and Theory Studies at the Architectural Association in London. Tatjana’s research focuses on the sensorial and psychology of immersive environments and virtual realities. She has been examining the development of the body image in relation to how the subject perceives space, themselves within it, and the “other”, using theories from psychology, philosophy, biology, technological sciences, art and architectural history. Her research has been published and exhibited as part of the SAI Future Technologies Conference, ISWC Design Exhibition and recently in the 1st issue of architecture journal PAX Monographs. Tatjana has presented and guest lectured at various conferences, symposia and academic institutions.
