Nataly Gattegno is Associate Professor and Chair of Graduate Architecture. She is a founding design partner of Future Cities Lab, an interdisciplinary design and research collaborative that has developed a range of award-winning projects exploring the intersections of design with advanced fabrication technologies, responsive building systems and urban space. Nataly’s work has explored notions of territory – terrestrial, arctic, urban and suburban - by speculating on the design opportunities and inhabitation of extreme climatic environments. FCL’s work has been widely published and exhibited. FCL was most recently awarded the 2011 Architectural League of New York NY Prize and the Van Alen NY Prize in Systems and Ecology in 2009.
