Genevieve Baudoin is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at Kansas State University. Her background prior to architecture is as a cellist with a BA from Oberlin College, and she holds an MArch from the GSD at Harvard University. She has worked with Foster + Partners in London and Antoine Predock Architect in Albuquerque. She is the author of Interpreting Site: Studies in Perception, Representation, and Design. Her collaborative practice, Dual Ecologies, focuses on site and infrastructural relationships and their coincident architectural and tectonic response.
Site is not a term exclusive to architecture. Site occupies a contentious zone as it (and the design field) expands and blurs between objects and their surroundings. “The Layered Landscape" will share author/architect Genevieve Baudoin's work in her collaborative practice, Dual Ecologies, by comparing both built and unbuilt projects of varying scale and intent, where the typical dichotomy of the designed object and its surroundings are questioned through modes of representation, perception, materiality and program.
