Alex Schweder works at the intersection of art and architecture. His investigation into this territory centers around the permiability of buildings and the bodies that occupy them. While working in Flatland he will be focusing on the way that inhabitants subjectively construct an unusual space and the way that this space thereafter constructs them as occupying subjects. Among his interests in Flatland is how this space move from a netural object at the beginning to an altered space by the end of this occupation.
Schweder is the 05-06 Arnold W. Brunner Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture. He holds a Bachelor's degree in architecture from Pratt Institute and a Master's degree in architecture from Princeton University.
