About Felicity Scott

Felicity D. Scott is Associate Professor of Architecture, Director of the Ph.D. program in Architecture (History and Theory), and Co-director of the Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture (CCCP) program at Columbia GSAPP. Her work as an architectural historian and theorist focuses on articulating genealogies of political and theoretical engagement with questions of technological and geopolitical transformation within modern and contemporary architecture, as well as within the discourses and institutions that have shaped and defined the discipline, sometimes evidently, sometimes less so. In addition to publishing numerous articles in journals, magazines, and edited anthologies, she has published "Architecture or Techno-Utopia: Politics After Modernism" (MIT Press, 2007) and "Living Archive 7: Ant Farm" (ACTAR, 2008). Her recent books include "Outlaw Territories: Environments of Insecurity/Architectures of Counterinsurgency", which investigates architecture’s relation to “human unsettlement” and "territorial insecurity" (Zone Books) and "Disorientation: Bernard Rudofsky in the Empire of Signs" (Sternberg Press), both of 2016.
