Tamie Glass is an Assistant Professor and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in interior design. Her intercontinental career launched at Daimler in Germany with the creation of corporate identity projects for the Mercedes-Benz brand. This was followed by four years of experience in London providing concept design, design development, and construction documentation for top firms Virgile & Stone, as well as Conran and Partners. Her expertise extends from high-end hospitality and retail projects throughout the EU and Asia to wellness, corporate, and residential designs in the US.
Tamie Glass' overarching goal is to explore the role of interior design in society and investigate how through the process of creating physical spaces, designers can instill intangible qualities into the built environment while respecting end users and the natural world. This involves examining the perception and identity of interior design, investigating ways to teach "experiential" aspects of design, emphasizing user experience, and analyzing how design can bring a sense of value and change.
Tamie Glass holds an NCIDQ certificate and is a Registered Interior Designer in the State of Texas. She maintains an Austin-based design practice with Associate Professor Ulrich Dangel. Since 2008, she has been the recipient of over twenty local, regional, and national design awards for projects that were under her leadership. Notably, she was the recipient of the 2012 Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) Creative Scholarship Best in Show and the 2011 American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Educator Design Excellence Award. Both honors recognize the design work of educators at a national level.
Tamie Glass is a member of the Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) and is the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Student Chapter Faculty Advisor to Ampersand. She will also serve on the ASID Texas Chapter Board for 2012-2014.
