Press Release
August 18, 2022

The Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) is excited to share that University President Lee Bollinger has appointed Andrés Jaque to serve as its next Dean, effective September 1, 2022.

As a distinguished architect, curator, and artist, Professor Andrés Jaque has championed ways to bring inclusivity to the built environment. This appointment confirms Columbia GSAPP’s commitment to steward the evolution of bodies, technologies, and ecosystems. From its urban campus in the heart of New York City, the School has a legacy of assembling today’s leading scholars and practitioners to empower the next generations of architects, critical thinkers, urban designers, planners, preservationists, and real estate developers to critically engage with the present and to shape the future of the built environment.

“The world is radically evolving, and GSAPP is known for leading change and for mobilizing our disciplines to reinvent societies, environments, politics, and technologies in order to address the challenges of our times,” said Andrés Jaque. “Building on the School’s strong legacy established by my predecessors and the faculty at large, I look forward to further intensifying GSAPP’s role in pushing the disciplinary boundaries of our fields to challenge structural forms of domain, and to redefine the demands of the future.”

Professor Andrés Jaque has taught at GSAPP since 2013 and directs the School’s Master of Science program in Advanced Architectural Design since 2018. He is the founder of the Office for Political Innovation, an international architectural firm based in New York and Madrid, that has received awards for projects in a broad diversity of media and scales.

Professor Jaque’s work is part of the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago and has been exhibited at institutions around the world. His recognitions include the Frederick Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts from the City of Vienna, the Silver Lion for Best Research Project at the 14th Venice Biennale, and the Dionisio Hernández Gil Prize. He co-curated Manifesta 12 in Palermo in 2018 and was Chief Curator of the 13th Shanghai Biennale, Bodies of Water. Professor Jaque received his PhD and MArch from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid.
