New York, NY, US



Anne Liu is a speculative technologist, artist, lecturer, designer, and researcher.  Her work deals with the intersection between architecture, technology, the mediated body, culture & the sensorium. 

She is currently developing the research program in Sensory Mediation at the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, which explores how information visualization, augmented reality, and other emerging technologies can be harnessed to extend the human sensorium to redefine spatial experience.  She has recently co-taught a studio at the Harvard Graduate School of Design with Krzysztof Wodiczko called Architecture of Cultural Prosthetics: Tools for Communication and Expression in the Public Space.

Interfacing the body with the spheres of architecture, prosthetics, and the science of perception, she searches for the epiphanies linking technological innovation with behavioral change to catalyze sustainable lifestyles.  Anne continually seeks to discover the unexpected, through playful experimentation, intuition, and speculative storytelling. 

Anne has a B.A. from Dartmouth College, and received a Masters of Architecture degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, earning a distinction for her thesis.
