Mitch McEwen, Nostalgia for the Present: IdeasCity New Orleans

« All Events

IdeasCity is a collaborative, civic, and creative platform that starts from the premise that art and culture are essential to the future vitality of cities. The international initiative launched in 2011 by the New Museum provides a forum for designers, artists, technologists, and policymakers to exchange ideas, identify challenges, propose solutions, and engage the public’s participation. V. Mitch McEwen will discuss her role 2019 curator of the IdeasCity project in New Orleans.

V. Mitch McEwen is principal and co-founder of A(n) Office, an architecture collaborative in Detroit, Princeton, and New York City. A(n) Office and McEwen were commissioned by the 2016 US Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and the Istanbul Design Biennial. Projects in Detroit include a combined residence and flower incubator for an engineer at 3M and a City of Detroit-commissioned action plan for housing across 160 acres of waterfront and canals in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood. Her work in urban design and architecture began at Bernard Tschumi Architects and the New York City Department of City Planning, as well as founding SUPERFRONT in Brooklyn. She joined the faculty at Princeton School of Architecture in 2017, where she teaches studio and building technology and leads A(n)other Lab. McEwen earned her M.Arch. at Columbia and B.A. at Harvard College.
