Director, Master of Urban Design
Carol Moukheiber is Assistant Professor and Director of the Master of Urban Design program at the University of Toronto’s Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. She is also co-founder and partner in the architecture practice Studio NMinusOne (n-1). She has previously worked in the offices of SOM, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, San Francisco, New York, and Bruce Mau Design, Toronto. At the domestic scale, her work has focused on the home as an immersive environment – one capable of generating new physical and emotional experiences — through the enhancement or recalibration of its infrastructure, or set of programs. She is the co-editor of Wild Wild Urbanism, Redesigning California [CCA 2006], and co-author of The Living, Breathing, Thinking Responsive Buildings of the Future [Thames & Hudson]. Her design work has been acquired by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and published widely in academic and mainstream media including Praxis Journal of Architecture, Domus, The New York Times Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. She is the recipient of a Canada Foundation for Innovation grant providing support for the newly launched RAD, Responsive Architecture at Daniels laboratory. Studio NMinusOne has been selected by the New York Architectural League for their Emerging Voices lecture series, 2012.
