One-to-One #10 with Galen Cranz




In line with this month’s “Furniture” theme, Amelia Taylor-Hochberg speaks with Galen Cranz, an architecture professor at UC Berkeley specializing in body-conscious design. Cranz is trained in the “Alexander Technique” – a method for “correcting” the body’s poor habits of movement, that can limit self-awareness in a space.

Before coming to Cal to teach architecture, Cranz received her PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago, influencing her pedagogy of architecture and furniture to primarily be about how humans occupy designs, and how social hierarchies emerge from those conventions.
