Lindsay Harkema grew up in the southwest and midwest US prior to attending grad school in Texas and beginning her career in New York City. She graduated from Rice School of Architecture where she was awarded the Morris Pitman Award in Architecture.
Harkema’s research and design projects explore the ever-shifting relationship between the built environment and the human ecology that occupies it, and the opportunities this dynamic creates for territorial, spatial, and political exceptions.
In 2012, Lindsay Harkema ventured to Moscow as a research fellow at the Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture & Design where she studied the relationship between protest and space. Previously, she worked for Leeser Architecture, Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, Architecture+Information, and Rice+Lipka Architects. Prior teaching experience includes The New School’s Parsons School of Design in New York City.
