K Brandt Knapp


K Brandt Knapp is a co-founder of BRANDT : HAFERD with Jerome W Haferd. BRANDT : HAFERD is a Harlem-based architecture and design studio. Their body of work includes academic research and a range of built projects - from the domestic to the workplace to the urban - that challenge the limits of design practice. Performance and Play, Abstract vs. Built Form, Nature and Territory are some of the interests explored in the practice. Haferd and Knapp were winners of the inaugural 2012 Folly competition held by the Architectural League of New York and Socrates Sculpture Park. Another architectural installation, caesura, at Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park in 2015 was a collaboration with artist Jessica Feldman, and supported by grants, the NYC Parks and local organizations. Their work has been exhibited at various institutions including Storefront for Art & Architecture. Brandt received her Masters of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture. Beyond The University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design, she has taught at MICA, NJIT, Pratt Institute, and Columbia’s GSAPP.
