Sloan Aulgur

Sloan is a multi-media designer who celebrates all scales of space as essential. Her design work and interests lie in valuing the intimate individual experience, and the limitations of a single human body. She believes one route to solving humanity's biggest challenges is through learning to speak to the masses as the billions of unique individuals that they are- she argues that designers are translators and supporters of stories other than their own. 

Sloan’s previous training in interior design prioritized small interactive details and designing for the psychological habits of people, often testing concepts through performative pieces and time-based productions. She has previously worked as an interior designer for various firms, including Marlon Blackwell Architects, Gensler Seattle, and Somewhere Studio. She is currently pursuing a Master of Architecture at MIT,  where her present work remains interested in the individual experience and its effects on the masses, studied through performative built works and time-based speculative narratives. Sloan has previously worked as a research assistant for Matter Design, and presently acts as a teaching assistant for studio 4.022. 

Sloan is a Myers-Briggs ENFJ, and an Enneagram 3w2, filled with an abundance of curiosity and humor.


A short film personifying the moon as a critique of humanity’s hyper fixation on the sun. The piece was conceptualized through a deep time narrative, and produced from a series of topographical sets and projections. MIT, Fall 2021. Core 1.
This experiment looks at actuating the medical braces of early-onset scoliosis, interested in articulating ways to nurture intimate relationships with the negatives of our bodies. The first generation piece mimics standard medical brace fabrication methods, while personifying the body armor to engage back. MIT, Fall 2021. Creative Computation.
An interactive viewfinder presenting different perspectives of the “truth” in space. A sequence of scenes are split by an internal two-way mirror, limiting the recognition of “fact” from each viewpoint. MIT, Fall 2021. Core 1.
A series of celestial dioramas exploring design in the vacuum(former) of Space. The models shares a list of fundamental laws of production, and design iterations arise from the manipulation of their shared variables. Each is piece is entirely unique, yet all follow a shared language. MIT, Fall 2021. Geometric Disciplines.
