StudioTJOA is a multidisciplinary design office dedicated to the exploration of material, theory, product, and environments.
Our aim is to work with, and be guided by, the tools, techniques, and material we use. Our explorations are anchored in the understanding of traditional design processes found within each project, while using digital tools and modern techniques to arrive at new and wondrous results.
At StudioTJOA, we embrace the art and craft of the analog while understanding our digital potential. It is our express purpose to find the balance and harness the properties found in these environments and to deliver original, high quality work to our clients.
StudioTJOA was started in Brooklyn, New York in January,2012. Since then TJOA has participated in numerous presentations on the utilization of parametric modeling in the AEC industry. In addition to pushing new forms of modeling TJOA has been a proponent of utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques for the development and execution of complex projects ranging from textile fabrication techniques to selective-laser-sintering prototypes and final products. The goal of our work is to promote the design and development of efficient and optimized spaces and products. We are committed to finding the straightforward answer to complex design problems by utilizing a combination of simple materials and modern fabrication techniques.

Alexander G. Worden
Alex is a licensed architect and has spent the last six years designing, developing, and executing facades and building enclosures for high profile, landmark buildings. Alex was drawn to building enclosures due to his interest in textile as it relates to architecture, a topic that he first explored in his graduate research.
He has continued to explore the use of textiles, specifically crochet, as it relates to contemporary design and digital craft. He has given a number of presentations and workshops on how digital design can be bridged through the fiber arts.
