Mario Gooden (‘90 M.Arch) is an Associate Professor and Co-Director of the Global Africa Lab at Columbia GSAPP and Principal at Huff + Gooden Architects. With Co-Director Mabel O. Wilson, the Global Africa Lab received an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Architecture in 2019. Gooden graduated magna cum laude from Clemson University in 1987 with a B.S. in Design and received a Masters of Architecture degree from Columbia University in 1990 and is a recipient of the McKim Prize.
His work, writings, and lectures frequently examine architecture and the translation of cultural landscapes defined by the parameters of technology, race, class gender and sexuality. In 2006 he completed the installation entitled UnSpoken Spaces: Inside and Outside the Boundaries of Race, Class, and Space at the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina. Most recently, Gooden is author of Dark Space (Columbia University Press, 2016).
Jonathan Gonzalez is a choreographer and Bessie-nominated performer based in his native New York City.
