Carol Moukheiber has taught at the American University of Beirut, the California College of the Arts and UC Berkeley, and has worked for design offices including SOM (NYC), and Bruce Mau Design (Toronto). She was the founder and co-director of the RAD lab at Daniels (2012-2015) probing the impact of emerging technologies on the physical environment. Her office, Studio (n-1), works with playful attention on projects traversing different scales from urban design, architecture, and building assemblies to domestic objects, manuals, and clothing. The built and conceptual projects, along with the physical prototypes have served as experiments for a flirtatious architecture that plays an active/subjective role — where all matter is recognized as vital, dynamic and expressive in shaping the perceptual experience of the inhabitant. The firm’s work has been acquired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and has been published widely in academic and mainstream media including The New York Times Magazine, Praxis Journal of Architecture and Domus. The studio is the recipient of the Architectural League of New York, Emerging Voices 2012 award. Publications include The Living, Breathing, Thinking Responsive Buildings of the Future [Thames & Hudson 2012] and co-editor of Wild Wild Urbanism, Redesigning California [CCA 2006].
