Ming Tang, Registered Architect, RA, NCARB, LEED AP (BD+C), is a tenured Associate Professor at School of Architecture and Interior Design, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, University of Cincinnati. He is the founding partner of TYA Design, which has won numerous design awards in China, Spain, Mexico, U.K. and United States.
Before he taught at the University of Cincinnati, he led the Electronic Design program (Digital Design + Computation) at the Savannah College of Art and Design and was a professor in the Architecture Department. He has worked with Michigan State University’s M.I.N.D Lab, University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies, and China Architecture Design & Research Group. He holds Master of Architecture Degree from Tsinghua University, Master of Arts Degree in Digital Media and Technology from Michigan State University, and Maser of Final Arts degree in Interactive and Game Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. His multi-disciplinary research includes computational design, digital fabrication, BIM, performance driven design, virtual reality & augmented reality, crowd simulation &way-finding, and human-computer interaction (HCI). His research has been published in various international conferences, journals, books, and exhibitions. He is the author of the book, Parametric Building Design with Autodesk Maya, published by Routledge in 2014, and urban paleontology, evolution of urban forms, published in 2008. Homepage; Full CV.
