Please join the AIANY Women in Architecture Committee for a conversation with Vanessa Keith.
Speaker: Vanessa Keith, Principal, Studioteka
Vanessa Keith is a registered architect and the Principal of Studioteka, a published, award-winning design firm she founded in 2003. Studioteka approaches design through a multidisciplinary lens that spans the boundaries between architecture, economic and social development, and urban and environmental concerns. She is especially interested in innovative sustainable design and the issues faced by cities as they adapt to climate change, and in envisioning design-oriented technical and engineering solutions to environmental problems. Her work has appeared in notable international design publications such as Frame, Hinge, Surface Asia, Design Bureau, Mark Magazine and Modelo Design Manifestos. Keith is the author of 2100: A Dystopian Utopia – the City After Climate Change, a book on the future of cities in a hotter world published by Terreform as part of Michael Sorkin’s Urban Research Series, and is also an editor of “Kingston Harbor: Development Transects,” a book of urban design work published by Columbia University in 2010. She has taught graduate and undergraduate design studios in architecture, urban and interior design, and economic development at Columbia University GSAPP and SIPA, Pratt Institute, and the City University of New York.
