V. Mitch McEwen
V. Mitch McEwen joined the Princeton School of Architecture faculty in fall 2017 from the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture & Urban Planning, where she had been an assistant professor since 2014. She is principal of McEwen Studio and co-founder of A(n) Office, a collaborative of architecture studios in Detroit and Brooklyn. A(n) Office and McEwen Studio projects have been commissioned by the US Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale and the Istanbul Design Biennial, and the work has been published in Architect magazine, Log, The Architect’s Newspaper, and ARTnews magazine. McEwen Studio projects in Detroit have operated strategically on vacant houses previously owned by the Detroit Land Bank Authority. These include a combined residence and flower incubator for an engineer at 3M, a strategy for 100 houses selected by the City of Detroit to densify the neighborhood of Fitzgerald, and an award-winning conversion of a balloon-frame house into the House Opera performance space. McEwen's work in urban design and architecture began at Bernard Tschumi Architects and the New York City Department of City Planning, as well as founding the Brooklyn-based non-profit SUPERFRONT. McEwen earned her M.Arch. at Columbia and B.A. at Harvard.
