Hanna Tulis

Hanna Tulis holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Arts from Barnard College, Columbia University. She is the founder of Both-And Collaborative, a multidisciplinary design practice in Ithaca, New York. Prior to becoming an educator, Hanna worked at Preston Scott Cohen Inc, Beyer Blinder Belle, OMA, and most recently, Selldorf Architects, where she focused on numerous cultural and residential projects, including the renovation and addition to The Frick Collection.

Independently, her research interests span media and lie at the intersection of architecture, urbanism, and the performing arts. With a background in contemporary dance, she is interested in how choreography — or thinking like a choreographer — can animate latent qualities in existing spaces. Documenting those qualities becomes the foundation for intervention or transformation.

Tulis is a Lecturer at Cornell University's College of Architecture, Art, and Planning. She has also been a design critic at Barnard College, Columbia University.
