Whiting to Head Rice Architecture School

Friday, August 7, 2009

Comment | More

Sarah Whiting, a member of the Princeton University School of Architecture faculty and an expert in urban and architectural theory, has been named dean of the Rice University School of Architecture.
 
Whiting will assume her new position on Jan. 1, 2010, succeeding John Casbarian, the school's longtime associate dean who is serving as dean until Dec. 31, 2009. Lars Lerup stepped down as dean earlier this year after 16 years and will return to Rice in 2010 as a professor.
 
“Sarah Whiting’s strengths as a teacher, author, and designer are clear, and she brings abundant energy and intellect to Rice,” university President David Leebron said. “Her aspirations for the School of Architecture align perfectly with the goals we set for Rice in the Vision for the Second Century, in particular our commitment to broaden and deepen our interaction with our home city of Houston. Under Sarah's leadership, we expect our already acclaimed school to be at the forefront of innovation in architecture education and enterprise.”
 
Whiting, a native of Evanston, Ill., joined Princeton in 2005. Previously she was at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design for six years, and earlier taught at the University of Kentucky, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of Florida.
 
She earned her B.A. degree at Yale, a master of architecture at Princeton, and her Ph.D. in the history, theory, and criticism of art, architecture, and urban form at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
 
As a principal of WW Architecture, a firm she co-founded with her husband, Ron Witte, she is currently working on projects for the drama division of the Juilliard School in New York and the Golden House, a private residence in Princeton, N.J. Before forming WW, she worked with Rem Koolhaas at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, where she was a designer on a number of architectural, urban, and writing projects, including the master planning of Euralille, a business center in Lille, France, that opened in 1994.

Perhaps best known for her professional criticism, Whiting has published dozens of articles on urban and architectural theory. In addition to editing several journals, she has edited books on Ignasi de Solà-Morales and James Carpenter and is the series editor of “POINT,” a new architectural book series to be published by Princeton University Press next spring. She is the author of the forthcoming book “Superblock City.”
 
Whiting takes over a school that has earned a sterling reputation in recent years. The School of Architecture was ranked No. 8 in the nation by the Design Futures Council in January and has been among the top 10 programs for the last decade. The school's graduate program has consistently been among the country's top 20.
