T Jason Anderson earned a B.A. in Architecture from UC Berkeley and worked in San Francisco before relocating to New York City. After receiving his M.Arch degree from Columbia University, Jason explored New York City through a series of professional engagements that ranged from a video game startup to animation and print development. During this professional sojourn, he also taught design related classes with an emphasis on technology within both the graduate and undergraduate departments of Columbia University, Parsons School of Design, and Pratt Institute. With this wide variety of related experience, Jason returned to architectural practice in 2002 and has remained dedicated to both architectural and education since, continuing his developing exploration of digital fabrication and other emerging design technology advancements.
In 2006, Jason moved back to San Francisco and began teaching design studios at CCA. He now coordinates the Studio 3: Urban Studio for the B.Arch Program and utilizes his past experience from New York City to guide the students through a semester tackling the complexities of the city and an exciting New York City field trip each fall. Jason also coordinates Studio 2: Site which tackles the exploration and multifaceted definition of site within the discipline of architecture, specifically engaging the relationships between landscape and architecture, nature and human settlement, extensive and intensive.
After having worked with K+D.Lab, a.BIO+ and SHoP Architects in New York City, Group41 in San Francisco, and having run a solo practice for multiple years, Jason partnered with Digo Lima to found studioANOMALOUS, a spatial design firm experimenting with perception and sensory interfaces. sA is currently working on a variety of projects utilizing video game engine software and film to capture, analyze and design environments.
Over the past 10 years, Jason has been exploring 49 of the 50 states making up the US environmental fabric with his motorcycles, seeking to understand the constantly evolving cultural and built landscape across the states. His most recent trips tackled the southwestern and southern states, a healthy dose of snow, a wide expanse of desert, and a delicious sampling of bourbon.
