Tulane School of Architecture in New Orleans has selected designers and educators Omar Ali and Emmanuel Osorno to join the faculty as the school’s inaugural Architecture Fellows. As part of their two-year fellowships, they will also join the first cohort for the newly launched Deans’ Equity and Inclusion Initiative, a national partnership co-founded by Tulane School of Architecture. Ali, co-founder of table of co., will serve as Tulane’s 2021-23 Architecture and Urbanism Fellow. Osorno, founder of EOstudio, will serve as Tulane’s 2021-23 Architecture and Social Innovation Fellow.

“Bringing new, diverse faculty with new perspectives to our school is incredibly important in advancing our own goals toward equity and inclusion. Both Omar and Emmanuel have immense talent, thoughtful teaching experience, and critical research in their fields, and our school looks forward to working with them,” said Iñaki Alday, Dean of Tulane School of Architecture. 

During their two years at Tulane, Ali and Osorno will have teaching responsibilities and will conduct research on a topic of their choosing. They will attend two summer institutes hosted at different schools each year along with other fellows in their cohort from the Deans’ Initiative. 

Tulane Architecture and Urbanism Fellow - Omar Ali
Omar Ali is the co-founder of table of co., a cloud-based design and research practice. Ali’s research focuses on how liminal urban spaces, or “in-between” spaces like alleyways, can be leveraged to create a more equitable city. He has practiced architecture and urban design at UrbanLab in Chicago, MOS Architects in New York City, and John McMorrough / studioAPT in Ann Arbor. His work has been written about in Metropolis Magazine, published in Architecture and Surrealism (Thames and Hudson), Fresh Meat Journal (UIC), and LUNCH Journal (UVA). Over the last couple of years, he has exhibited at a83 Gallery in New York City, Banvard Gallery in Columbus, and has a forthcoming installation at Space p11 in Chicago. Awards include an honorable mention for the Burnham Prize Competition: Burnham 20/20, a finalist proposal for the 8x8x300 Competition, and was recently shortlisted for the 2021 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism. Ali holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Architectural History from the University of Texas at Arlington. He has taught at design studios and representation seminars at Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Texas at Arlington and was a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) and a Graduate Student Research Assistant (GSRA) while attending the University of Michigan. 

Tulane Architecture and Social Innovation Fellow - Emmanuel Osorno
Emmanuel Osorno is the founder of EOstudio. Osorno’s most recent work aims to recalibrate the public’s view towards building preservation and social services, leveraging the power of images to infiltrate existing forms of media through which buildings circulate and gain value. While at Princeton University, he was a research assistant at the c.r.e.A.te Lab, where his work focused on computer vision and robotic operation; and he held teaching assistant positions for multiple design and social innovation studios. Prior to his graduate studies, Osorno practiced for several years at Eric Owen Moss Architects in Culver City, CA, where he was involved in the design and construction of renowned projects. His work has been published in ACADIA and Pidgin, and exhibited in San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Chicago, and Princeton. He also contributed to the design and publication of the book L.A. [TEN]: Interviews on Los Angeles Architecture, 1970s-1990s edited by Stephen Phillips. Osorno holds a Post Professional Master of Architecture and a Certificate in Media and Modernity from Princeton University, a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and is a registered architect in the state of California.
