Tania graduated as an architect from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, studied at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Germany, and holds a Masters in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture from the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation in New York.
In the second part of Future Architecture Tallinn programme, one emerging creative from the Future Architecture platform will be selected to take a one-week residency in Tallinn. The program includes either the conducting of the workshop at the Art Academy Faculty of Architecture and the results will be exhibited at the show; or development of an idea for a site-specific installation in Tallinn at the Museum of Estonian Architecture (preparatory works and site visits in 2018, realisation in 2019).
