Sarah Bonnemaison

Sarah Bonnemaison has studied architecture at Pratt Institute in New York City and M.I.T., developing a special interest in lightweight, collapsible structures and set design, which she pursued in many designs for dance and theatre groups in New York City, and in the architecture office of Bodo Rasch and Frei Otto in Stuttgart, Germany. Her work in tensile structures has extended to award-winning interior fabric installations and theatre sets as a free-lance designer.

Following the establishment of her company FILUM with Christine Macy, Sarah pursued her interest in the architecture of commemoration in the doctoral program in human geography at the University of British Columbia. She has taught lightweight structures and design at the University of British Columbia and the University of California, Los Angeles, and is currently an associate professor of architecture at Dalhousie University.
