Her essays include “Territory and Inhabitation” (Interior Architecture Theory Reader, 2017) “Interior Migrations” (iijournal, 2013) and “Optimistic Projections On The Cultures Of Mass Consumption And Waste” (Forward, 2011). Routledge will publish Campos’ forthcoming book Interiors Beyond Architecture, co-edited with Deborah Schneiderman, in 2017.

Campos has taught design for 15 years in Interior design, Architecture, Urban design, Visual and Critical Studies at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Before joining CCA’s faculty, she most recently taught at the Pratt Institute and Columbia University. At CCA, Campos is currently teaching Interior Design, Architecture and Materiality studios, as well as the History/Theory seminar titled, “Peripheral Interiority”.

Prior to establishing ACA, Campos worked with Atema Architecture in New York as well as with SHoP Architects and Brian Healy Architects, among others in Boston, San Francisco, New York, and Florence, Italy.
