studioANOMALOUS is a progressive San Francisco based spatial design firm experimenting with perception and sensory interfaces. Our research explores how fabrication, simulation, and augmentation are currently shifting our collective perception of environments.
sA is a full service design firm with work experience ranging in scales from small installations and fabrication projects, to urban planning and infrastructural design. sA also provides other design firms with fully immersive interactive virtual environments of unbuilt architectural projects and barely imaginable landscapes.
In our work, we seek to employ cutting edge technologies in an effort to optimize the design and construction process, push the abilities and conventions of visualization, and engage with the ultimate designed space in a richer way. It is the belief of studioANOMALOUS that technology is vastly altering the way in which we perceive the built world around us through three methods: production, simulation, and augmentation. In every one of our projects we employ at least one of these methods producing a truly contemporary product.
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 before rejoining the architectural profession in 2002. He returned to San Francisco in 2006 to teach at California College of the Arts, where he is an Associate Professor. 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 formed studioANOMALOUS with Digo Lima in 2013.
Jason teaches design and technology courses with an emphasis on virtual and augmented reality within both the graduate and undergraduate departments of California College of the Arts, and has previously taught at University of California Berkeley, Columbia University, Parsons School of Design, and Pratt Institute. He has been an invited critic to design juries at the Architectural Association, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, SCI-Arc, Yale and the University of Pennsylvania.
When Jason is not in the office he is typically either exploring one of the many hiking opportunities with his young son, or out traveling the roads of California with the San Francisco Motorcycle Club..
