Rosalyne Shieh is an architect, educator, and partner in SCHAUM/SHIEH, a collaborative practice based in New York City and Houston, TX. She is a MacDowell Fellow and recipient of the AIA Henry Adams Certificate. Shieh’s interests extend between architecture and the city; her speculative project, Sponge Urbanism, projected an urban transformation of a neighborhood in Detroit, a fragment of which was built as a prototype and exhibited at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale. Ongoing research looks at the potential ethics of Taiwanese material culture and includes speculative urban projects in Taiwan. Her work has been exhibited at Art Prize in Grand Rapids, the Storefront For Art and Architecture, and the Center For Architecture in New York. SCHAUM/SHIEH was a finalist in the 2017 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program Competition and named one of the 2016 New Practices New York by the AIA. Shieh holds degrees from Berkeley, the Bartlett, and Princeton, and trained at Stan Allen Architect, Abalos&Herreros, and ARO. She is a registered architect in the state of New York and NCARB certified. She has taught at The Cooper Union, Syracuse, and the University of Michigan, where she was the 2009-2010 A. Alfred Taubman Fellow in Architecture.
