Associate Professor


Jonathon R. Anderson is an Associate Professor of Interior Design 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 with a concentration in Architecture from Southern Illinois University. Additionally, Jonathon’s consulting and professional practices concentrate on the use of digital design for fabrication.  Jonathon has published and exhibited internationally. 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 currently working on a new book titled ‘Visualizing Interiors’. The book will be published by Routledge, a Taylor-Francis publishing company, and expected early 2019.
