Jason is a senior lecturer at Monash University and a licensed architect in the state of Pennsylvania. His research explores how technological changes impact material ontology and artisanal epistemology.

He was a research fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture and an Arthur C. Tagge fellow at McGill University, where he completed his PhD dissertation examining the influence of material culture on the origins of Gothic architecture. He is the author of “Approaching a Material History of Architecture,” in Performative Materials in Architecture and Design (2013), edited by Rashida Ng and Sneha Patel; and of “Fear and Bernard of Clairvaux’s Living Stones” in Room One Thousand, the University of California at Berkeley’s interdisciplinary journal on architectural history.

Dr. Crow is currently preparing the manuscript for A New Interpretation of Twelfth-Century Architecture: The Reconstruction of the Abbey of Saint-Denis forthcoming in Amsterdam University Press’s Knowledge Communities series, which examines the twelfth-century understanding of stone architecture through the intertwined histories of theology, science and craft.
