Manufacturing Territories

BY TIMMITHEA CHAN
@ VOL 17 ON MAR 04, 2016

Timmithea Chan teaches upper level architecture courses at South Dakota State University. She has taught Professional Design Studio, Whole Building Studio, Urban History and Building Technology classes. Timmithea earned her Masters of Architecture degree at Rice University, Houston. She is the principle of a young architecture research firm, the AURR Projects.  Her interest in the synergies between architecture, urbanism, infrastructure, and technology has led way to her body of work. Systematic approaches to design generate intelligence and complexity. Every motive for a project is an action-reaction stemming from an observed phenomenon in our ever-evolving social, political and built world. Timmithea always looks for opportunities for architecture in unsuspecting scenarios, envisioning it to take on unexpected narratives. Her family is from Hong Kong, and currently lives in Toronto. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, photography as well as spending time with her fiancé and her fluffball of a dog, named Momo.
