About

 

Jesse Seegers (b. 1987, New York) is a spatial practitioner working between architecture, graphic design, writing, editing, publishing, curating, and research practices. His practice attempts to increase architecture’s political agency and critical role within popular culture, operating within the spectrum between formal and informal, institutions and start-ups, high and low-brow, building and theorizing, socializing and disconnecting, digital and analog, permanence and ephemerality.

He was most recently Associate Editor of Digital Projects at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation from 2014-2018, and currently teaches graphic design at New York University‘s Tandon School of Engineering. He received a Masters of Architecture degree from Princeton University and a Bachelors of Arts from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

Previously, he was 2013-2014 Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Intern at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, edited AGENDA: Can We Sustain Our Ability to Crisis? (Actar, 2009) at JDS/Julien De Smedt Architects in Brussels and Copenhagen, worked for Rem Koolhaas’ Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in New York, creative strategy and fashion brand Surface to Air Studio in Paris, and the C-Lab/Volume Magazine.

He writes criticism and essays on art, architecture, design and technology for publications including PIN-UPSurface, Domus, TANK, DAMn°, Volume, Urban China, Frog, Above, and Pidgin, as well as for recent books including Rafael de Cárdenas/Architecture at Large: RDC/AAL (Rizzoli, 2017), and Columbia GSAPP Abstract.
