Since 2011 he has taught on modern and contemporary architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, the Strelka Institute in Moscow and the Columbia University graduate school of architecture. From 2004 to 2011 he was the architecture critic of The New York Times, were he wrote widely on architecture and urbanism in the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and where he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in both 2006 and 2011. Previously, he was the architecture critic of The Los Angeles Times, where he was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 and again in 2004 for a series on the cultural decline of Baghdad. He received a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University in May 1985, and a master’s degree from the Columbia University graduate school of architecture in May 1992. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1962.

Sarah Whiting has been Dean and Josep Lluís Sert Professor of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design since 2019. She is also a design principal and co-founder of WW Architecture, based in Cambridge, and served as the Dean of Rice University's School of Architecture from 2010 to 2019. Whiting received an interdisciplinary, self-directed Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale, a Master of Architecture from Princeton in 1990, and a Doctor of Philosophy in the History and Theory of Architecture from MIT in 2001. Whiting’s research and writing is broadly interdisciplinary, with the built environment at its core. An expert in architectural theory and urbanism, she has particular interests in modern and contemporary architecture’s relationship with politics, economics, and society and how the built environment shapes the nature of public life.
