His work has also appeared in Grey Room, Log, Harvard Design Magazine, Places, The Journal of Landscape Architecture, the Journal of Architectural Education, and Journal of American Culture, on topics that include: the history of the driveway, the relationship between conceptual art and suburbia, the aesthetic function of infrastructure, and the history of the design thesis. He is also the co-curator Ambiguous Territory: Architecture, Landscape, and the Postnatural.
David is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Ithaca College, where he is also the coordinator of the Architectural Studies program.
