Mark Wasiuta, Columbia University
Mark Wasiuta is Director of Exhibitions and Co-Director of the graduate program in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices (CCCP) at the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. He is a founder, with Marcos Sanchez, of the International House of Architecture, a group invested in defining new forms of architectural research, design, and practice through a series of archival explorations. One recent project, Inversion Layer, examined the archives of the Air Quality Management Division in Los Angeles, with the goal of furnishing data that would allow for the reproduction of historical smog. House Arrest, a project developed with the support of the Graham Foundation, examined the complex intersection between police surveillance, green technologies, suburban architecture, and energy privacy in the San Fernando Valley.
