Andrew Thurlow received a Bachelor in Architecture from Syracuse University (1994), where he received an award for Outstanding Thesis, and a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University (1998), where he received the CAD Design Award. He co-founded the architectural firm Thurlow Small Architecture in 2001 and has lectured, exhibited and been published internationally. TSA's recent projects include a 480 hectare centralized park design for Yinzhou, China, a transit oriented development plan for Pawtucket RI and a 3000 sf interior design for a web marketing company, in Providence RI. TSA was also selected as a finalist for the National AIDS Memorial Competition, in San Francisco CA.
The research and design of TSA has been published in New Tectonics: Towards a New Theory of Digital Architecture (Birkhauser, 2009), Praxis 10: Urban Matters (2008), Center 14: On Landscape Urbanism (2007), Distinguishing Digital Architecture (Birkhauser, 2007) and Indian Architect & Builder (v21): focus Digital Design (2007). Earlier work from TSA has been published in the architectural journals Arch+, Archithese, Era 21, IA&B and Metropolis.
Thurlow was made an Associate Professor of Architecture with tenure at Roger Williams University in 2008, and has held previous academic appointments at the University of Tennessee and Columbia University. His current academic interests focus on the reciprocities between digital technologies and architectural design, with specific emphasis on integrated workflow models of parametric modeling and robotic prototyping.
