Tatjana Crossley is cofounder of the architectural and research practice ArchiTAG. The practice tackles issues of the experience of space, architecture’s impact and influence on 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 Ph.D. at the Architectural Association, her MArch II at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, and her BArch at Rice University. She has worked in practice for S.O.M. San Francisco and previously taught at the Architectural Association in London, as an assistant professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and as a critic at the Rhode Island School of Design. She is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Her research focuses on the sensorial and psychological properties of immersive environments and virtual realities. She interrogates the cultural and social implications of virtual spaces, that use various mediums of representation, throughout history. 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.
