Van Leuwen-Hall’s work is concerned with the shifting paradigms of culture that architecture is uniquely qualified to confront. Their work looks to examine new pedagogical models and architectural manifestations that emerge from new subjectivities and identity politics, the waning politics of globalization, the fallout of the Anthropocene, and techniques and aesthetics unique to machine learning.
