* Required information


Isabella Tangherlini
Isabella graduated this summer with a BFA and BArch from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her practice, she seeks to generate multifaceted landscape-aware meaning-making experiences, which create sites of reflection, thereby enabling a dialogue between architecture and the environment. Sculpture, painting and drawing are inevitable parts of these engagements. As a native Californian she also likes to spend her time hiking, skiing and surfing.
Jingwen Gu
Jingwen Gu is currently pursuing his Bachelor's degree in Architecture at Cornell University. He is also a publication designer and co-editor at ASSOCIATION in Cornell AAP. Fascinated with architecture's capacity to draw ephemeral connections between the metaphysical and the sensory realms, he seeks to interrogate both the phenomenological and essential aspects of architecture as they are informed by and in turn impact the environs. He enjoys sketching, listening to Rachmaninoff, and roaming cobblestone streets on sunny afternoons.
Lafina Eptaminitaki
Lafina is an architect, visual artist, and currently a Master in Design Studies candidate at Harvard GSD. She holds a Diploma in Architecture from the University of Thessaly, Greece and a Master of Arts in Architecture from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Denmark. Her MA Thesis “The Word Event,” an experimental work between language, art, and architecture, won First Place in the 2020 International Gaudi Architecture Prize. Lafina has previously worked at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Storefront for Art and Architecture, and MOS Architects in NYC. Also, she is a co-founder of Atelier Atthis, an award-winning art and architecture practice in Athens, which this year participated in the 10th Biennale of Young Greek Architects.
Yahya Abdullah
Yahya is an architectural designer from Toronto, and obtained his Master of Architecture from the University of Toronto in 2021. He has collaborated on various architectural projects, competitions and exhibitions internationally, most recently with OMA (Rotterdam) and McCullough Mulvin Architects (Dublin). His interests engage with the reconceptualization and reconstruction of historical sites conflict­ed by the devastation of war, risking the erasure of ideas and memory. He seeks the generative potential of poetry in conceiving architecture as a limbo between the metaphysical and phenomenal spaces which draw out meaning through form.
Theresa Mark
Theresa holds a deep affinity for contextual design as a placemaking tool that shapes our awareness of human dignity and ecological compatibility, creating space for conversation and action. This socio-spatial approach to architecture, ranging from the individual to the global scale, has been formed through her experiences participating in undergraduate design research led by Professor Anthony Titus and interning in the public sector at the Port Authority of NY & NJ. Currently preparing for her final year as a Bachelor of Architecture student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a minor degree in sustainability and environmental justice, Theresa is thankful to ‘T’ Space for this opportunity to grow as an architect and designer.
Steven Lemke
Steven Lemke uses sculpture, installation art and digital fabrication technology to speak to issues of land use, architectural production and community. Upon completing his MFA in Sculpture at the University of Notre Dame, he was awarded a 2019-2020 U.S. Fulbright Research Fellowship to creatively examine socialist-era concrete housing in the former Czechoslovakia. He currently serves as Environmental Artist-in-Residence at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, where he teaches art, architecture and design.
