"The Architecture of Deafness" published in the Cooper Hewitt Design Journal, Winter 2017 

 

Despite their architectural richness, the architecture of deaf schools often merit little more than a footnote in architectural history, deaf studies, and deaf education discourses. Funded by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, "The Architecture of Deafness" explores the potential of an architectural discourse about deaf schools in the United States. This article, published in the Winter 2017 issue of the Cooper Hewitt Design Journal, is a small sample of that work.
