Tiffany Lin is a licensed Architect and Assistant Professor and Director of Undergraduate Architecture at the Tulane School of Architecture. She has taught design courses across the five-year curriculum, serving as the coordinator of core design studios. She was appointed the Undergraduate Program Director in the Fall of 2014 and works with the admissions and advising of TSA students. Lin received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University in 2000 and a Masters in Architecture from Harvard University in 2004, where she was the recipient of the Faculty Design Award and the Clifford Wong Prize for Housing Design.
Lin is currently engaged in a range of local design projects through the Tulane City Center, working with non-profit community partners. These projects include an exhibition gallery for the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, and a seven-acre Vietnamese community garden in lower Algiers. She also partnered with Judith Kinnard to build the SunShower SSIP House, an off-grid disaster relief prototype which received an AIA New Orleans Honor Award in 2012.
Prior to becoming a New Orleanian, Lin lived and practiced architecture in Boston where she co-founded the firm LinOldhamOffice. The work of LOO was selected for the Architecture League of New York’s Young Architects Forum in 2005. Their 8 Container Farmhouse was also awarded a Progressive Architecture Award the same year. During her term in Boston, Lin taught design studios at Northeastern University and worked in the offices of Machado and Silvetti Associates, and Leers Weinzapfel Associates.
In addition to teaching and practicing architecture, Lin continues to experiment with painting and collage as media of tactile, spatial investigation. Her two-dimensional works have been exhibited in Cambridge, MA and New Orleans, LA.
