Ellen Dunham-Jones

Ellen Dunham-Jones is Director of the Architecture Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. She is an award-winning architect and frequent author on both contemporary architectural theory and contemporary urban development patterns. A passionate advocate for alternatives to sprawl and retrofitting the suburbs, her writing focuses on the varied responses by architects to the everyday landscape, as well as on the resistance of avant-garde architectural discourse to these ideas. She is (probably) the only charter-signing member of the Congress for the New Urbanism who also lectures on critical theory.
