CAROLYN KIRSCHNER, SAWYER DESIGN FELLOW

Carolyn Kirschner is a Sawyer Seminar research fellow, with a background in architecture and critical design. Her work explores the relationship between physical and digital space: exposing emerging conflicts and peculiarities at the interface between these two territories to develop new strategies for speculation-led design. Carolyn has worked for various international architecture practices, completed her Masters in Architecture at the Royal College of Art in London with distinction and previously attended the University of Nottingham for her undergraduate studies. She has acted as a delegate in immersive technology workshops, participated in academic conferences, and has been published in architectural press. Her work operates between theory and practice, at a range of scales and bridges diverse formats of representation.
