American by birth, but Italian by adoption, designer Terry Dwan studied structural engineering, civil engineering and architecture. She also completed a Masters of Architecture at Yale University in 1984 and upon graduating, won a Fulbright Scholarship to Rome, to study Italian Cemeteries and War Monuments.
In 1987 she gained accreditation in California and in 1994 in Italy. She has worked in Los Angeles, New York and Boston in large architectural offices and since 1985 has collaborated with Antonio Citterio in the Studio Citterio Dwan.
The solutions and compositions devised by Terry Dwan demonstrate ideas of rare originality which are also surprisingly functional.
