About me & my work:

I am associate professor and director of the MA Design Studies program in the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons The New School for Design. My research explores the cross-disciplinary dynamics of global culture and design, the relationship between textiles and architecture, and the parallels between design and literature. I've written numerous articles and books including the forthcoming Design as Future-Making (Bloomsbury, 2014), Contemporary World Interiors (Phaidon, 2007), Pentagram/Profile (Phaidon, 2004), Inside Design Now (Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, 2003), Design for Life (PUBLISHER, 1997), and The Edge of the Millennium: An International Critique of Architecture, Urban Planning, Product and Communication Design (Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, 1993). A fellow of the American Academy in Rome, I was awarded the Academy’s Rolland Prize in Design in 2003. Previously, I was the assistant director for public programs at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York.
