"Once Upon a Time in Another America"


An educator, writer and designer, Keith Krumwiede focuses his design work on the development of sustainable, climate-responsive, high density urban housing prototypes. He recently published "Atlas of Another America: An Architectural Fiction", a book that mixes satire, sci-fi, and the sublime in plans for utopian villages built out of suburban mega-homes.

Krumwiede was most recently a visiting associate professor at MIT, and has been an associate professor at NJIT and an assistant professor and assistant dean at the Yale University School of Architecture where he was awarded the King-Lui Wu Award for Distinguished Teaching. Prior to Yale, he served on the faculty at Rice University School of Architecture, where he was the Gus Sessions Wortham Assistant Professor, and at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. He is a co-founder and partner of Standard, an architecture and design practice with offices in Los Angeles, Texas and New York. He has written about the sub-networks and porous enclaves of Los Angeles, the almost viral annexations pattern of Texas cities, and the sophisticated and sinister practices of homebuilders. He has designed furniture, books, installations, and buildings (along with several urban plans).

Krumwiede earned a B.A. In Architecture from U.C. Berkeley and M.Arch. from SCI-Arc and is the 2017 Arnold W. Brunner/Katherine Edwards Gordon Rome Prize Awardee.
