Biography

Jason Crow is a senior lecturer of architecture at Monash University and a licensed architect in Pennsylvania. He holds a BA in Architecture from Clemson University and Masters of Architecture from Iowa State University. Dr. Crow worked as a professional architect in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Quebec. He was the founding CTO of the Facility for Architectural Research in Media and Mediation (FARMM), McGill University’s high-performance computation research laboratory, where he completed his Doctor of Philosophy in the History & Theory of Architecture. He is currently completing the manuscript for A New Interpretation of Twelfth-Century Architecture: The Reconstruction of the Abbey of Saint-Denis (Amsterdam University Press), which examines the twelfth-century understanding of stone architecture through the intertwined histories of theology, science and craft. Dr. Crow’s research explores how technological changes impact material ontology and artisanal epistemology.
