Felicity Scott

Felicity D. Scott is Professor of Architecture, Director of the Ph.D. program in Architecture (History and Theory), and Co-director of the Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture (CCCP) program at Columbia GSAPP.

Her work as an architectural historian and theorist focuses on articulating genealogies of political and theoretical engagement with questions of technological and geopolitical transformation within modern and contemporary architecture, as well as within the discourses and institutions that have shaped and defined the discipline, sometimes evidently, sometimes less so. In addition to publishing numerous articles in journals, magazines, and edited anthologies, she has published Architecture or Techno-Utopia: Politics After Modernism (MIT Press, 2007) and Living Archive 7: Ant Farm (ACTAR, 2008).

Her recent books include Outlaw Territories: Environments of Insecurity/Architectures of Counterinsurgency, which investigates architecture’s relation to “human unsettlement” and territorial insecurity (Zone Books) and Disorientation: Bernard Rudofsky in the Empire of Signs (Sternberg Press), both of 2016. She has also written on contemporary art and architecture for magazines including Artforum and Texte zur Kunst as well as in numerous exhibition catalogs. She is also a founding co-editor of Grey Room, a quarterly journal of architecture, art, media and politics published quarterly by MIT Press since Fall 2000.

Felicity Scott received her Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2001, and an M.AUD from Harvard University in 1994. Felicity Scott is the recipient of many awards, including the German Transatlantic Berlin Prize from the American Academy in Berlin (2013), a Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts Grant (2011), a New York State Council on the Arts Independent Project Award (2010), a Clark Fellowship (2008), an Arts Writers Grant from Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation (2007), a J. Paul Getty Postdoctoral Fellowship (2002-2003), and a Henry Luce/ACLS Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship in American Art (1998-1999).
