    Critical Curiosity

    Maura Rockcastle, Principal at Ten X Ten

     

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    1. Explore how a process-based approach aims at acknowledging bias in the design process and embraces notions of “unlearning” as a critical point of beginning.
    2. Understand how various analog, digital, analytical tools, and other curious methods catalyze innovation and grow sets of knowledge around design process, critical research, and engagement.
    3. Explore case studies of active projects through a sharply focused exploration of process, experimentation, and research.
    4. Understand the successes, challenges, and needs of the professional relationships and practice models that are fighting to do this work.

     

    BIO:

    Maura has extensive experience working on large scale projects, managing, and navigating multi-headed stakeholder groups and complex public processes.  With a background in printmaking and sculpture, Maura balances a rigorous design approach with a conceptual sensibility rooted in process and craft. Her professional experience is focused on cultural, institutional, and public realm projects including the High Line Section 1, Times Square Reconstruction, and Historic Fort Snelling Revitalization. Her work spans many scales of landscape; from 4,500-acre parks to 5-acre urban plazas, to small collaborative art installations.

    Maura was previously in New York City working as an associate for James Corner Field Operations and as the Landscape Discipline Leader at Snøhetta. As a careful observer and good listener, her work focuses on catalyzing social, economic, and environmental transformation through design innovation. She holds a BFA from Cornell University and an MLA from the University of Pennsylvania. She has taught design studios at Harvard GSD, Yale School of Architecture and is an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota College of Design.
