Architecture Job Talk - James Tate
James Tate is the 2014 - 2015 Willard A. Oberdick Fellow at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Tate earned his Master of Architecture from Yale University where he received the Alpha Rho Chi Medal. Tate has completed residency fellowships at the Auburn University Rural Studio and Common Ground in New York City and has previously taught studio (including co-teaching a studio with Michael Maltzan at Rice University), visualization and building technology courses as an adjunct instructor at Woodbury University and Rice University. Aside from academic work, Tate runs an architecture studio practice T8projects where he designs, makes, writes, and participates in a variety of architectural affairs. His current affinities include narratives, oppositional dialectic blends, seeking refuge in unsettled territories between art and architecture and the latent potentialities of history in contemporary experiments. Additionally, Tate has worked for MOS, Peter Eisenman and Samuel Mockbee.
