New endowed professorship

Longtime School of Architecture faculty member Keller Easterling has been named the inaugural Enid Storm Dwyer Professor of Architecture. Easterling, the director of the school’s master of environmental design program, studies the political implications of space, infrastructure, and globalization. Her most recent book, Medium Design, published by Verso, explores the ways in which the interrelationships within the built environment—between buildings, urban networks, and natural ecosystems—can address the “wicked problems” of today.

Border book

Two Sides of the Border, a new book published by the School of Architecture with Lars Muller Publishers, collects the work of 13 design studios taught by Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao, all of which studied aspects of interconnection and continuity across the US-Mexico border. Featuring images by architectural photographer Iwan Baan and essays by numerous authors, the book shows how the border region is unified through logistics, production, culture, and common struggle.
