Jonathon Anderson is an Associate Professor of Interior Design and Director of the FCAD Creative Technology Lab at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Furniture Design from Savannah College of Art & Design and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Southern Illinois University. His work explores how industrial manufacturing and CNC technologies influence the design and making processes. As a result, the work is characterized by innovative and explorative methods that result in interconnected design, fine art, and technology solutions. From this non-traditional process emerges a provocative, complex design language that visually communicates at varied scales and emphasizes corporeal and phenomenological experiences. To Jonathon, making is not only a practice but a form of critical thinking. His studio is a research and speculative art + design firm that has been awarded in several international competitions including A’Design Awards (platinum level), eVolo skyscraper competition, YAF 10up design/build competition, d3 Natural Systems, and the AIA Austin TOGs competition. Jonathon served as co-editor of the International Journal of Interior Architecture and Spatial Design (ii journal), editor of the IDEC Exchange and recently published a new book titled ‘Innovations in Landscape Architecture’. Jonathon is currently working on a new book, 'Visualizing Interiors', that will be published by Routledge in 2018.
