Emily Bunker works as a builder with a focus on fine woodworking, community design education, and material research. While pursuing her Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, Emily continues to teach design/build workshops and fabricate custom furniture.
She has worked in a range of woodshops including Michael Hurwitz, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Conservation Department and a five-year stint as a Project Manager at Staack Moore Woodworking. Her strong interest in land art and material research led her to make work as an artist-in-residence at several programs including the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture/Taliesin West, Art Farm, and CAC Troy. Her projects have been featured in SP Weather Station, Conflux Festival 2012, and Fairmount Park Conservancy’s recent “Meadow Mansions” among others.
She currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband Daniel Tucker, and maintains a strong connection to her family’s tree farm in Western New York where she hikes and occasionally harvests wood for projects.
