A portion of this research was published in the article Geometric Extensions of Consciousness in the Italian architectural journal Zodiak 19 in Exploring her life-long fascination with the Platonic solids, the book tyg features related models and documentation of past projects, including Tyng and Kahn’s never-built design for City Tower in Philadelphia The exhibition features a series of new media sculptures that lie squarely at the intersection of art, science and technology, a veritable menagerie of interactive critters—or, more broadly, organic forms.

After graduating from Radcliffe College inTyng became one of the first women to receive a Masters of Architecture from Harvard University.
