Noah Chasin

Noah Chasin is Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture in the Urban Design program at Columbia GSAPP. He received his Ph.D. in Architectural and Urban History from the CUNY Graduate Center and is a historian/critic/theorist with a specific emphasis on the relationship between urban design/planning and human rights. His teaching, research, and writing center on issues of human rights in zones of urban conflict, questioning the ways in which citizenship and access are adjudicated in urban social networks.

Chasin has taught at Bard College, Cornell, Barnard, RISD, and the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons The New School. His critical writing has appeared in Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, ArtForum, and Journal of Architectural Education, among many others. He was formerly architecture critic for Time Out New York, and was featured in the urban design documentary Urbanized, directed by Gary Hustwit.

In addition to his role in the M.S. AUD faculty, he is affiliated faculty at Columbia´s Institute for the Study of Human Rights.
