Tatjana Gorbachewskaja explores the interdisciplinary field across architecture, media and design. Her main focus is to create visionary experiences and environments that unfold a new sensitivity of space and materiality.
Gorbachewskaja´s work mediates in scenarios of the near and far future as an investigation in the social and environmental impacts of emerging technological developments in the building environment. Her interest is the synthesis of material intelligence and digital tools in a spatial system that acts as an interface of interrelations between the exterior- and interior-world.
The interface of interrelations is not separating, but connecting them on an integrative and sustainable way, whilst unfolding a new role for designers working at architectural scale.
Born and raised in Russia, Tatjana Gorbachewskaja received her Diploma degree in Architecture at the State University of Architecture, St. Petersburg and holds a Postgraduate Master of Arts in Advanced Architectural Design in Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main (Class of Prof. van Berkel, Prof. Bettum and Prof. Wigley).
