Taylor Staten is an architect based in Chicago, where she leads TnS Studio as Managing Partner and Design Principal. Founded in 2018, TnS Studio primarily serves communities on the South Side of Chicago and works to save abandoned buildings. Recently, the firm received a Neighborhood Opportunity Fund grant from the City of Chicago to renovate a space in South Shore for their first office.
In addition to design work, TnS will host an architecture camp for students in 6th–12th grades in Summer 2021, and currently provides mentorship to architecture students and recent graduates. The firm is also developing a scholarship to support education for young Black architects. Currently, only 2.5% of all architects in the U.S. are Black; it is TnS Studio’s goal to create equity in architecture and open the field to those that can change it.
