Sarah Gunawan is an architectural designer, currently practicing at CO Adaptive in Brooklyn, NY. Her independent research and work entangles multi-species cohabitation, femist disability studies, misfitting human bodies, and posthuman theory, all in an effort to stay with the trouble. She was the Reyner Banham Fellow 2017-18 at the University at Buffalo where her teaching and research focused on disrupting normative design processes through the lens of human aging. She is an active member of Design As Protest, a coalition of designers mobilizing strategies to dismantle the privilege and power structures that use architecture and design as tools of oppression. Sarah Gunawan holds a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Architecture from the University of Waterloo.
