Catherine Seavitt / Catherine Seavitt Studio

October 20, 2010 - 5:30pm

Catherine Seavitt is principal of Catherine Seavitt Studio, an interdisciplinary practice premised on the collaborative integration of architecture, landscape, and public infrastructure. Current research includes collaboration with Guy Nordenson and Adam Yarinsky on the book On the Water: Palisade Bay (Hatje Cantz, 2010), presenting the findings of the 2007 FAIA Latrobe Prize research grant, an infrastructural and ecological study and master plan proposal for the Upper Bay of New York and New Jersey given the effects of sea level rise. This work served as the inspiration for the workshop and exhibition "Rising Currents," which opened at the Museum of Modern Art in the spring of 2010, and is currently on exhibit as part of the U. S. Pavilion exhibition Workshopping: An American Model of Architectural Practice at the 2010 Biennale di Architettura in Venice, Italy.

Seavitt is a Fulbright Fellow, a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome, and currently teaches architectural design at Princeton University and landscape architecture design at the City College of New York.
