The NewSchool of Architecture and Design has appointed Tatiana Berger as associate professor of architecture.
Berger brings more than 20 years of international experience, having collaborated with renowned architectural firms and designers such as Richard Meier and Alvaro Siza Vieira on projects in Europe, Russia and the United States.
Berger’s work includes designs for multiuse structures over the Moscow railways; a study for sustainable housing outside Beijing, China; and the reconstruction of the historic Chiado district in Lisbon, Portugal. She was also hired by ILF Consulting Engineers as a project manager on the 2014 Winter Olympics project.
Berger has served as a faculty member at Boston Architectural College and as an adjunct faculty member at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. In 2010, she co-founded the Compostela Institute, a summer academy for the study of architecture and landscape architecture in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Berger currently directs her own design-build architecture firm in La Jolla, where her interdisciplinary work includes developing urban environments, landscapes, buildings and furniture.
“Tatiana Berger’s impressive global and interdisciplinary credentials make her uniquely suited for this role, as her experience and knowledge will help shape our students’ views and understanding of the global design field,” said Vivian A. Sanchez, NewSchool interim president. “We look forward to her contributions at NewSchool, where her experience will provide invaluable insight for our students as they develop skills for success in the global workforce.”
