Good Morning!! Only THREE days left to get your tickets to Speed Mentoring this Thursday!
Today we are excited for you to #meetyourmentor Sarah Whiting!
Since 2010, Sarah Whiting has been the dean and William Ward Watkin Professor at the Rice University School of Architecture, a school that operates as a think tank of research and production while preparing graduates to think, negotiate, and collaborate. Whiting is also a partner of WW Architecture, a practice that she co-founded with her partner Ron Witte in 1999.
Whiting’s interests are interdisciplinary, with the built environment at their core. In her teaching, writing, and practice, she focuses on architecture’s public audience and how architecture can engage that collective subject: the architectural and urban forms through which that public manifests itself, and how, in turn, that public is formed by its built context.
Whiting’s writings have appeared in publications ranging from Assemblage to Wired. Prior to arriving at Rice, she taught at Princeton, Harvard, IIT, and the Universities of Kentucky and Florida. Whiting received her B.A. from Yale University, organizing her studies as an independent major that combined architecture and urban studies with history and philosophy. She received her M.Arch. degree from Princeton University and after two years practicing with Rem Koolhaas in the Netherlands, she returned to school to obtain her Ph.D. in the Architectural History, Theory, and Criticism program at MIT.
