Georgina Baronian Named 2022–23 LeFevre Fellow

Baronian’s work explores the interrelation of climate and aesthetics.

The Knowlton School is pleased to announce that Georgina Baronian will be the  2022–23 Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow beginning autumn 2022.

Georgina Baronian is principal of sam clovis + georgina baronian & associates, an architectural practice based in Los Angeles. Her work explores the interrelation of climate and aesthetics, and how assumed notions of the production of thermal comfort can be critiqued and reconsidered through a spatial, experiential, and aesthetic lens.

Prior to establishing an independent practice, Baronian worked in Tokyo, Japan for the offices of SANAA and Junya Ishigami. Her work in Japan included projects for new cultural venues, educational institutions, housing, and large-scale public art installations in Europe, North America, and Australia. She has held teaching positions at Princeton University and served on the faculty of Cal Poly Pomona. Baronian has been internationally recognized for her work with the LafargeHolcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction Next Generation Global Prize and the Howard Crosby Butler Travelling Fellowship.

Georgina received her Master of Architecture from Princeton University.

The Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellowship was established in the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture in 2000. The purpose of the fellowship is to widen the disciplinary discourse and to invigorate teaching within the school with a broad range of ideas. The LeFevre Fellowship provides an individual with a nine-month residency to investigate a specific project related to his or her overall development, produce an exhibit and lecture concerning the work, and develop their ideas within the context of teaching an architectural design studio.
