Stephanie Smith: Lighten Up!
Ecoshack founder Stephanie Smith is an architectural designer, an entrepreneur and a champion of light and nomadic lifestyles. Her designs are inspired by the ad hoc, indigenous and archetypal typologies typically found at the fringes of society and culture. Her designs have been covered in many publications, including Dwell and The New York Times. And she's recently presented her work at Harvard University and The Whitney Museum.
Smith is also a design instructor. Her most recent design studios at SCI-Arc explore ideas of low-impact design, mass production and alternative forms of community.
Smith has an M.Arch from Harvard University. Her thesis under Rem Koolhaas explored the transformation of local cultures in China as they adapted to a global economy, published as “To Get Rich is Glorious,” in Great Leap Forward.
