An award winning Architect and Industrial Designer, who received both degrees from Pratt Institute, has dedicated her career to interdisciplinary design. She has sought out projects that span her interest in psychology, theory, structure, color, detail, materiality, and especially whimsy, to create unique design solutions. Tanya established her own architecture and design practice after working as a project architect with Pentagram Design, NYC. Recently, she completed her first work of fiction, a novel written for every man and especially every woman, called WOMAN BE COOL. Writing and performing the spoken word publicly has led to a renewed interest in teaching where all her fascinations and training come together.
