Brigette Borders

Brigette Borders a tech-obsessed experiential designer and artist living in Brooklyn. She received her Master of Architecture from GSAPP in 2009, and began teaching upon graduation. Her interest in the intersection of technology, architecture, art, urban planning and sustainability is guided by her view that design and logic are one and the same.

She paints in encaustic, the ancient technique involving heated beeswax, and brings her background in digital fabrication to her process, adding a contemporary lens. Her work is inspired by the often ruled and at times chaotic organization of natural and urban landscapes. She is an ardent recycler and has been refusing plastic bags since long before the practice became fashionable.
